some smiles

hard to believe it’s thanksgiving tomorrow…we’re on our own this year, but i still plan to make a big, delicious meal.  not a ton going on here. 

1. a fresh pumpkin pie.  i made a pumpkin pie today for tomorrow’s dessert…from scratch (as in from the actual pumpkin).  it smells really good. 


2. also today, i made playdoh for the girls.  purple for liberty, pink for leila.  it turned out great.  i think it’s better than store-bought.  unfortunately, liberty decided to play with her water and dumped it all over her playdoh.  now it’s ruined (which makes for an unhappy mama after all that work…plus the attitude from libbs isn’t helping).

3. the girls tried to put on a music show for me this morning.  i wanted to get video of it, but realized my camera doesn’t take video. lame.  each of the girls tried out my flute, but got frustrated when they couldn’t make sounds come from it.  they also tried out my irish whistle (that i got in ireland!).

4. lately if leila is “missing,” you can often find her in her toy box chattering away with the toys :).


5. liberty’s hair.  she keeps trying to do her own hair to make herself look stylish (her own words)…check out one of her creations:


6. hand print turkeys….always fun!

7. soaking feet.  after jonathan runs (for work) he sometimes soaks his feet…this particular time the girls wanted to try it out too.  cuteness!

LOVE the scarf! I don't have anything on my needles right now, and I am starting to feel like I want something...what pattern did you use? And what type of yarn?

That scarf is gorgeous, I just love the pattern!

Love that the girls were trying to play the flute. We are huge on instruments here, I get the girls a new one for every holiday/birthday so I love that it is a real flute. Such fun and I'm sure they will learn to make sounds come out soon.

Way to go on that homemade pie, it looked fantastic!
