Me, in all my technological incompetence glory, deleted all my buddies in my Friends and Family section. ;( So if you have a blog, PLEASE leave me a comment and tell me what your link is. I'd love to re-ad you!

Yesterday Colin's nephew, Brayden, came to spend a couple days with us. He had so much fun with Duke, Rissy and us. We just love how big he's getting and all the fabulous stories he creates! The funnest thing we did was make playdoh. 3 different colors! Below are a couple pictures from his visit.

Our first batch of playdoh - blue!

Mr. Cheesy. Then we made green.

And Brayden's favorite, orange!!!

Of course, when a boy makes playdoh, he's got to play with it!

I think the funnest thing to do at our house is play with Duke and Rissy. He absolutely loves these dogs! He especially loved that Rissy would lay her head on him and that Duke would make sure Brayden didn't make a mess while eating - he's a pretty good vacuum!

Brayden asked to have a picture taken with Duke and Riss. This is what I got! Then we noticed that B's fly was down, and we both chuckled about it! Immediately followed by, "We should zip it up." :) So zip it up we did. This little guy puts so many smiles on our face, we love having him here! So much fun! (except for the 7:30 wake up call ;)

Pretty girl and handsom boy!

Just wanted to share a couple cute pics of the dogs. :)

Naughty Boy...

I left the garbage by the door, forgot about it, and went to take a shower. I got out of the shower to find this. He can't be guilty, can he? ;)

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year Colin and I went to my parents for Thanksgiving. It was so neat because they had LOTS of snow! Unusual for the Seattle area, I think this was the first year ever we've had Thanksgiving snow. So pretty! We also had our friend from Germany here for her first Thanksgiving ever. I'm not too sure she was loving our food, but she was a good sport and tried several things! The turkey was a little interesting to her, since they don't usually eat turkey in Germany. That morning I did a Turkey Trot 5k with my bff Keana. it was very cold and icy, but Colin was a good sport and drove us there! Below are a few pictures from the day.

This is how we do Thanksgiving. Notice the snow on the porch AND the alcohol.
YEP. That's how we do Thanksgiving.

My mom with my sister's "Tofu turkey". Disgusting.

Colin and his caveman turkey leg.

We had such a nice dinner together...

YUM! Even Duke thought it was yummy!
