Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and remembers to be thankful and show gratitude for all you have.  I am certainly thankful beyond words for all the blessings in my life, especially my family!  And all my friends!  Thank ya'll!

Here's some cute photos of the boys!

Scott and Parker have been going to school early for the last month or two on Mondays and Fridays and participating in their school's Bobcat Marathon.  On those days they run one or two miles (they can decide).  When they have reached 26.2 miles, they are given a t-shirt and are praised for the accomplishment.  We think it's a pretty neat program.  They have been little troopers as it has sure gotten cold in the mornings lately.  Parker finished his marathon while we were in New York a few weeks ago, so we didn't get a picture of him, but did have him stand next to Scott as he finished on Monday.  It is neat to see as the people in charge ring a bell while each kid is coming in for the finish with their .2 of a mile to finish the 26.2 mile marathon.  Others are cheering them on.  We decided to go watch Scott finish and got there just in time!  Way to go, Scott and Parker!

And then there's our little hat boy, caught playing around with Dad's hat.

Pretty sure you'll not find anything cuter than this!

Even when he does this!

I thought he was being awfully quiet in the other room.  He'd found a plate of some little pumpkin cheesecakes I'd taken out of the fridge and set on the counter.  There were little pieces of it scattered all over this room as well as some in the window sill.  Can't be mad at that face, and you should see the back of the jammies, there's a smiley face on the bum.  Yep, nothin' cuter!  (Don't worry, the cheesecakes were getting old and uneaten, so I put them on the counter to throw them away--they were good when they were fresh though!)

Not posting the recipe (which I made up), but if you want it, let me know and I'll get it to you.  They had a gingersnap crust.  (Pumpkin Spice Kisses and Cinnamon Chips-I liked the chips better.)

Sorry there's no pictures of Taylor this time!  Stay tuned for the cutest little cherry pies you'll ever see!
