Bring On The Turkey

Fall raking 2008


Fall raking 2009

And with the flick of a rake we're officially launched into Holiday Season 2009. I can hardly believe the boy in the 2008 pictures is the same on in the 2009's, I mean really, last year he fit comfortably into the wheelbarrow and this year he was loading it and pushing it down the hill all by himself. If I had to guess this means that last year's "I'll nap comfortably" attitude towards Turkey Day is going to be replaced with more of a "give me more turkey now mommy daddy please more candy corn please what's that? turkey? mommy more turkey now please", or something like that. And yes, we're going to the Macy's parade again. And we're going to take him to Radio City to see the Rockettes. And he's going to sit on Santa's lap an LIKE IT this time. Because clearly the fact that he's now helping us rake the leaves (kinda sorta) means that he's ready to enter the insanity that is New York during the holidays and hang the red stockings and start jiving to ho-ho-ho carols on the subway platform. He has no idea how much fun the next 2 months are going to be...

Who is that little boy on top?!! Save some holiday fun for my visit.

Btw, Jason loved your Faver commnt. He hates him too. Moe has a #28 Viqueen hat and it's hard for me to look at him when he wears it.

These pictures make me happy and intensely homesick at the same time. I love seeing pictures of "then" and "now" with these little kiddos...it just wows me how much they grow and change and how the little personalities shine through.

Beautiful.

It's true. No idea how much fun the next two months will be!

I rented my first holiday movie of the season yesterday. I thought of you all (is that weird?). Although, I should have thought of you all if I was renting it in July :)
