Here's a quick recap of some of the highlights from November:
Emmy and I attended Gavin's Thanksgiving Feast…so darling. Gavin was quite funny. His teachers had set up place settings for the children and their parents around tables, but Gavin wanted to sit by Turbo, the turtle, so we were antisocial and sat alone by the turtle tank…that's my boy.

The week of Thanksgiving, the kids were out of school and the Museum of Aviation had a model train display set up, so we took the kids over to check it out. I was pretty impressed by some of the displays…so much time goes into those things!
Our favorite display was, of course, the Christmas display, but all of them were really pretty cool. It made me really want a nice train set to go around our Christmas tree...
Below: random photo from after church one Sunday. Emmy had been laying on the floor alone, and pretty soon all the other kids were laying next to her, so I snapped a pic. :) Not a very good picture of Emmy…:/
Thanksgiving day we had several families over for our afternoon feast and to play games. we all had a great time and ate WAY too much delicious food. :)
Below: the kids helping me peel 10 lbs. of potatoes!
I managed to photograph all the kids, but never did get a shot of a SINGLE adult. Pretty typical. In all, we had 11 children, 2 infants, and 10 adults…probably the largest crowd we've ever hosted. :)
And, just to round things out, here's a shot of my favorite baby smiling at her (and my) favorite man. :) She lights up when he starts talking to her. TOO cute!
