What's that smell?

We were on our way back from Georgia yesterday when we got caught in traffic behind some big tractor-trailers with smelly exhaust.

From the back seat, a small voice is heard:

"What in the world is that funk nasty smell???"

Just a little more evidence that Will is a chip off the old block.

I recently realized I had never published an actual Halloween post, so here goes, just in time for Christmas:

At parental urging, Will drew his pattern before starting to carve. As you can see, the results were remarkably similar to the plan!

Sophie helped Daddy with his pumpkin...

...and also started her own, which was finished by Mom and sits next to her below.
Hippie Mimi made a return trip...

...and Mom had to figure out a Halloween-themed fruit item for Sophie's school party (which she unfortunately missed due to illness).
(Thank you, internet, for the fruit-salad-orange-pumpkin idea!)

A photo from Will's Thanksgiving program (yes, that's Pilgrim Will, not Warlock Will) and a few from our Thanksgiving in Michigan...

(In the interest of full disclosure, I did not take most of these pictures.)

Breakfast with Santa

The ornament on the left was the model. I thought it was an interesting contrast with Sophie's work. Our girl likes some bling!
