Thanksgiving Harmony

Well, we're not the Osmonds or the Lennon Sisters, but we do actually sing together on occasion- just no public performances, please! Here we are singing some Thanksgiving hymns.

We are blessed to have just spent a week with my family in Arkansas. We love to be together and talk, eat, shop, watch football, hike, play games, etc. It is so nice to be in a family that gets along so well that our main argument at Thanksgiving is over what is preferable - white meat or dark meat?

Before and After

Here are before and after pictures! I thought it was very
"sweet" of the orthodontist to give her a stash of the candy
that is normally forbidden to the wearers of braces!


Here are Nathan and Caleb getting ready to go foraging the neighborhood for candy.

Yes, Caleb has too much gel in his hair. He was dressed as a spy and wanted me to spike his hair up. Then he changed his mind, but I had already put the gel in, so I had to put more gel in to get it to go back down. It was really nasty.

After getting candy, we settled in to watch the movie "Luther" since October 31st is also Reformation Day even though Halloween gets all the press. We've been doing a little mini-unti on the Reformation, and we really loved this movie. We even ate a whole container of gummi worms to commemorate the Diet of Worms. If you don't know what that is, you need to study some history.
