November Catch Up

Well, as usual for me I have gotten behind in my blogging and once again am just throwing a whole bunch of posts into one. I thought we would start off with Carter looking pretty dapper.

There are a few of those every day experiences that I always want to remember. One of those are lunch time. Carter has these classic meal time looks and faces. He didn't do any of them on this video, but he did some of his usual routines. Lunch usually consists of Carter eating/playing/singing/talking and me sitting there watching and laughing.

The BYU Utah Game

Anyone who is familiar with my husband knows that this game is one of the most important days of the year. So to celebrate it we decided to invite some friends over to watch the game, even some Ute fans (and yes we do consider them friends...how charitable I know). At one point we had 21 adults and children all packed into our little family room.

While the game was going on in the next room, Carter and his little buddy Katie decided to play a game of there own: How many toys can we pile on Carter? As you can see in the pictures below they thought it was HYSTERICAL!

Woo Woo
Carter has been enjoying trying on mine and Daddy's shoes lately. Those legs are lookin good buddy.

Carter is also singing all the time now: while riding in the car, eating, playing, sometimes in his bed.... But here is a little sampling of his own rendition of Twinkle, Twinkle. Usually he likes to stick to the original tune, but sometimes he does enjoy taking some creative liberties.

Mustache's Need Love and Appreciation Week (MNLAW)
Matt's brother Cory while attending Minnesota Law School became the founder of Mustache's Need Love and Appreciation Week and now every week of Thanksgiving the brothers, cousins, and friends all grow Staches and post pictures and laugh until they cry or wet their pants. I would not be surprised if it is not a phenomenon that will soon hit your hometown as it is growing fast and furious. After several of these boys (and some women) sport their staches several other guys rush to join. These are a few pictures that Matt took of his ever changing moustache:

Thanksgiving was so nice this year. We had our friends Heather, Jake, and Oliver over. It was so fitting having them here since they are our family in Pittsburgh. The food was DELICIOUS if I may say so myself!! And we had plenty to be thankful for this year.

I am horrible with gravy so this is Heather trying to teach me how. Heather did a great job and I think I might be able to do it successfully on my own next time.

Pittsburgh's Christmas Parade
The Saturday after Thanksgiving Pittsburgh does their very own Macy's parade, but this one is for Christmas and it brings the big man himself Santa into town.

Since Pittsburgh is the home of the late Fred Rogers and Mister Rogers Neighborhood it is only fitting that Mr. McFeely is part of our parade.
We were freezing our tail ends off!
In the end we decided waiting for Santa was not worth it and left early. BRRR, it was cold!
Carter being the Man of the House *The following is from December:

"The Baby Man"

"A Monster"
Carter's favorite show right now is "Little Bear." On a couple episodes there are different character's pretending to be a monster and so now one of Carter's favorite activities is to pretend to be a monster.
