A holiday in pictures... my Thanksgiving

My wonderful son, Owen, who loves to pray throughout the meal. Apparently the food needs blessing every couple of bites. Amen.

Jared is 11 now and was very excited about having us spending the night with at their house. I was excited because Owen loves playing with my brothers which gives me a little break.

Isaac lost one front tooth the day before Thansgiving and lost the other one the next day. He spent most of the day saying lots of words that contained sssssss. Hopefully this sweet six year old will sing "All I want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth" for us!

My two boys were taking a nap together and I got some very beautiful pictures of them. This one is my favorite.

And the picture I'm most proud of! Owen's sweater is complete! Mom helped show me how to put it together (the benefits of taking Home Ec and having to learn to make clothes!) and I had it sewn up in about an hour and a half. The Knit Picks Wool of the Andes really softened up a lot after washing and blocking. I would definately make this sweater again, but perhaps with a different neckline and with some color added to a couple of areas.

Yay!

Awwww. Your son looks absolutely adorable in the sweater! Congrats on finishing it.
Now you'll have time to "whip one up" for your husband ;)

WOW! Owen's sweater looks great! I LOVE that color -- it looks really nice on him. And that picture of him napping with dad is beautiful. So sweet. You need to blow that up and frame it. Thanks for the nice comments on my blog too!

Beautiful sweater! Awesome job! How fun to have your "first" done, and so well to boot!

I cannot believe how big your brothers are! I still remember Jared watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang over and over, as much as he could get away with - I'm sure that's not his fav movie anymore ;)
~ it just still feels like yesterday, yet here we are with our "own" families now...

Great pictures of your family!
