Thanksgiving Pictures

We drove to Charlotte Thursday morning for a wonderful vegetarian Thanksgiving feast provided by Daniel's mom. We got to see visiting family members from Daniel's side including some of his brothers and sisters.

Thursday evening we drove up to Mountain City to Mimi and BB's house. My brother and his family were in town from Baton Rouge. The cousins just couldn't get enough of each other--they played inside and out, in the hot tub, in the music studio, at a few parks, watched movies and slept on the floor together since we didn't have a bed big enough for them all:) It's amazing how kids can literally make a game out of anything.

Fall Fun--Fair and Halloween

A day at the State Fair. Five hours of pure fun!

The girls went trick or treating twice. The first time they went with Daniel to an event at USC while I was visiting family last week. They got such a load. We all decided that the candy is better off in the trash than in their bodies. They kept a few pieces but threw away 4 pounds of junk.
While in the mood of getting rid of things, Daniel helped them go through their room and get rid of a few bags of clothes and toys. They also cleaned out my car and cleaned the house while I was away.
They wanted to be Indians for Halloween so we sewed these costumes out of some fabric and extra pieces from the fabric store. They made belts out of gimp and beads. Daniel sewed the shoulder bag for them.
We carved some pumpkins and left a bowl of candy out for the trick-or-treaters while we walked around the neighborhood last night.  We got another load of candy and sorted through most of it again tonight.
