a t-riffic Thanksgiving

we had the best time celebrating Thanksgiving in Seattle!

Some highlights, brought to you by the letter T:
turkey (I actually had a couple bites this year and didn't mind it!)
touring UW's law school
torential downpours
tourist activities (the Great Wheel downtown is wonderful)
Treasure family time
taking multiple naps a day
turning my parents house into Christmas town (or really just making a mess of the Christmas decorations)

We loved having a relaxing few days to unwind and relax with family. Yay Thanksgiving!

when traditions go wrong

We've been good at keeping Halloween traditions this year--hay rides, carving pumpkins, etc. but I wanted to try something new for our little family--enter chocolate chip pancakes for Halloween dinner.
 Well, let's just say it wasn't pretty but it tasted good and Andre gobbled it up. And now we have a whole year to perfect chocolate chip pancakes before next Halloween (let's be honest, it's probably the easiest thing I cook so I don't know what went wrong).

Since our Price is Right costumes from Halloween 1.0 were kind of a bust, we scrounged for ten minutes to find these beauties:
tourists/retirees/eccentric billionaires!
not the most creative costumes at the party, but everyone knew what we were.

happy halloween! now, onto Thanksgiving!
