thanksgiving 2022

we had a lovely thanksgiving last week with our family at my parents' house.  my mama went all out cooking a delicious feast.  we stuffed ourselves and have been enjoying leftovers for days!  believe it or not, i didn't take many photos and the ones i took didn't turn out so great, but at least we have a few to look back on since it was noah's first thanksgiving!

love, laurie

dentist in training

ryan was brushing his teeth the other day and noah was very intrigued by the electric toothbrush.  he even held it while it was vibrating to "brush" daddy's teeth!  our little dentist in training!

livin' the best life

this guy is too cute swinging in his "mom-a-roo" while munching on a wash cloth and staring up at the goofy balls on the top of the mom-a-roo.  too cute.

who needs a security system when you have a watch kitten?!  leko is always in control of what's happening around the perimeter of the house.

autumn walks

the past few weeks have had days here and there with unseasonably warm weather.  we try our best to take advantage of those days and go for little walks.  noah tried out his bug net over his stroller on a recent walk.  he really enjoyed his nap in the fresh air!

veterans day flags

the veterans alliance at the university where we work has displayed thousands of american flags on campus in honor of veterans day for the past several years.  every year i love seeing all of the flags in the lawn.  each flag represents a fallen service member.  the flags are on display all week and it's really something to see all of the flags arranged in perfectly straight lines, blowing gently in the breeze.

hanging off the edge

i peeked into the bedroom the other day and saw leko's behind hanging off the foot of the bed as he was looking out the window.  he's so cute, but i was concerned that he didn't fall off!  i was caught in the act of snapping a picture . . .

tummy time

sometimes noah is a fan of tummy time and sometimes he's not.  last week i snapped this picture during tummy time and had to giggle at the puss on his face.  he was not a fan that day.  poor guy!

halloween 2022

halloween 2022 was a fun one!  ryan decorated the house and we put out our pumpkin decorations around the house.  we dressed up noah for his first halloween as a little pineapple, and we dressed up as hawaiian tourists with our little pineapple!

our parents came up to celebrate too.  we had pizza for dinner and then some yummy pumpkin squares and ice cream sandwiches for dessert.

we handed out candy to the trick-or-treaters who came to our door.  all together we had 137 trick-or-treaters this year!  it was a fun halloween.

love, laurie
