Thanksgiving report

So Thanksgiving was, of course, fantastic. It was so fun to catch up with old friends and watch our kids run around together. And so interesting to see the diferences in our kids. Like the fact that there are toddlers in the world who will sit unrestrained and eat for an entire hour at a time! Here's a little video (sorry for the quality, it was dim), funny for those of you who know our kids. Notice how Malcom is the last one left at the table - even the adults have long since finished!
Not to say that Malcom doesn't get into his fair share of predicaments - such as getting both thumbs stuck in a woofle ball. But notice the calm face! He was like this for a good 20 minutes until we had to cut the ball off after unsuccessful crisco-ed, buttered and oiled attempts at removing the thumbs!

But it was a great time. Sarah had all the perfect decorative and homey touches, even putting up a banner for my birthday and making me a birthday cake that was not only delicious, but a work of art, as you can see.
I just noticed that Sarah also blogged about it, so for more info, check it out!

Glad you had a happy birthday Jen. And I must say you are the cutest pregnant lady. You are looking good hauling those boys around. Seeing this picture of you at their house makes me miss Cleveland. Looks like Dave, Sarah and Malcolm are doing well. Fun to see them.

How fun to see everyone...the only people we've seen from our class is the Hawes!!
Yeah for Sarah taking on your birthday too! That is quite the Martha Stewart convection!
Oh---and cute little belly!!

I see that we really have to get our house baby-proofed and toddler-proofed for your arrival. I wish it looked as good as your Thanksgiving house. We can all hardly wait to see you in Utah - tomorrow, if plans all work well.
