Family Pics

 Our friend and photographer Rebecca Moat took our pictures again this year.  Always so stressful but once it's over I'm glad we did it!

Thanksgiving Day

Happy Thanksgiving Day!  We hosted several families at our house.  It was fun (and a bit stressful).  I made the turkey using Mels "2 hour turkey" recipe.  I was nervous but it really turned out great! 

 The chefs behind the meal :)  Good friends Elodie, Jami, and Veronika.

The Waite's, Shutt's and McCormick's.  Between all of us there were 8 adults and 12 kids.  Busy but fun!  Counting my blessings for a wonderful family and great friends.

Turning 32

 Happy Birthday to me!  Turning 32 felt really no different.  Zui made me delicious waffles for breakfast and a pumpkin creamcheese cake for dessert.  The kids loved singing to me and helping me open my presents.  Zui got me matching earrings to a necklace he bought me the year before.  Dennis watched the kids so we could go out to eat dinner.  A fun day!

Familiar Tunes recital

 Anjuli's first recital!  She did great.  Definitely
  such a "proud mom" moment :)
Anjuli played "Twinkle Twinkle"

 Always so rewarding to hear my student's play at recitals.  I really enjoy teaching piano and having an "extended" piano family :)
