 We've had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend so far. Bryan has had off since Wed. noon, which is great! We've loved the extra time with him around! Thur. afternoon/evening we hosted a dinner here in our clubhouse for the ICS teachers. Around 80 people joined in the festivities and we had tons of great food. I successfully cooked a turkey and made stuffing and gravy!
 Great spread!
 Wonderful friends and colleagues.

 The dinner organizers... Christine and myself.
 Web-caming with family on Thanksgiving. Doesn't Jack look thrilled? :o)

Friday we were invited over to our friends the Simons for a BBQ and a great afternoon of fun. Here are a few pictures from that afternoon.

 Jack didn't get a nap while we were there, so he crashed on the bus home :o)
 Friday evening we put up our Christmas decorations. We are feeling cozy and holidayish now in our home. Max loved the antlers :o)

 Our first ornament casualty... I guess thats what happens when the two year old decorates ....

 May you enjoy this season of Advent and giving as much as we will!!!!

little max...

The littlest Thompson is growing like a weed. He's also begun to smile, so here are some sweet pictures. Bryan is really good at getting him to smile! The last two pictures he is smiling at his dad.

beach and video

 Last weekend we headed out to one of our favorite beaches. It was too cold to swim, but Jack had a blast playing in the sand. One of our friends was having a birthday lunch out there, so it was a great afternoon!

We headed out to the beach with two sleeping boys...

Here a video of little Max... He doesn't really do anything, but I don't want to neglect taking videos of him. :o)

when dad is away...

The family plays!
This past week Bryan was in China on a school trip. The boys were really well behaved and the week went fast. We are really glad to have him home now.
snuggles in bed
a typical morning... Jack watching Jay-Jay or Thomas as a reward for pooping on the potty and Max napping.
We had lots of play dates...
in fact my friend Christine and her two kids came over and had a sleepover the final night!
Annette is enjoying our home.
Max'd think he was a new born or something!
Fun bath time before bed for Jack and Josiah.

Four happy kids after a pretty good nights' sleep.
morning run with two moms, two double strollers and four kids...This proved to be difficult as the two little ones began to cry after a bit, so we didn't get a picture of the whole gang...

little suckers...

 On Sat. Max got his first bottle. He got the hang of it and drank it all!
 Since Max has been born and we are using pacifiers again, Jack also wants to participate. I have given him his old W (wisconsin) pacifier for his very own. He likes to chew on it out the side of his mouth.. nice look.
 Jack decided to get in on the action last night.
 Aren't they SO cute!
 You can see in Max's eyes that he is about to lose it...
And... my moment of peace...gone! Baby needs to be held again :o)
