Eldest Dude, the Teen, turned 14 and celebrated by playing Halo with a couple buddies.
Who says you can't shop on Thanksgiving day? Big Dude went Craigslisting (oh yes, that is a verb!) and instead of coming home with just the Halo Reach game that was his intended purchase, he came home with the seller's whole Xbox kit and kaboodle. oy. Happy Bdays and Early Merry Christmas, Dudes!
We had a great Thanksgiving dinner (No Turkey here; osso buco + sweet potato risotto), followed by a walk on the beach, followed by Pumpkin Pie & Mexican Train dominoes back at Mom & Dad's house.
I created a fun vacation album and caught up to date my regular annual family album. Wanna see some vacay pages?!? I know you do .... ;-)
Littlest Dude got all caught up in Black Friday madness and purchased a Nerf gun as big as himself ...
We introduced the Dudes to Napoleon Dynamite ...
And ... the epitome of cuteness ... at church this weekend, as we were dropping Littlest Dude at his class, he was filling out his name tag and said, "I'm going to add a little excitement ..." and drew an exclamation point at the end of his name. Gosh, I love that kid!
