Trip to Nevada

It was jacket weather, with highs in the 50's, and lows in the teens.

We did a little hiking.
Bringing the backpack & not the stroller was the smartest decision I made on this trip.

New favorite activity: throwing the ball for the dog.
Even if it only went 3 inches, she was a great sport about it.

Quality time with Grandpa.

Working on our Bon Appetit Thanksgiving dinner.

Sage Butter-Roasted Turkey with Cider Gravy
Sourdough Stuffing with Sausage, Apples, and Golden Raisins
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Green Beans with Walnuts and Lemon Vinaigrette
Pioneer Woman Rolls
Cranberry Sauce
Deviled Eggs
Harvest Pear Crisp with Candied Ginger


The leftovers were just as good as the dinner.

They may act like animals sometimes, but I really do try not to cage them up.

This was the dog's place inside the house. Once he discovered how much he liked her, this become his favorite hang out.

One of about 54 Christmas pictures.

Think it's tough to get the "perfect" shot of one kid? Try two.....

(There's a reason I will never be a professional photographer.....)

We miss you, Grandma & Grandpa!!
