Because the Bridges were planning to be in Arkansas for Christmas, we celebrated with them a little early (last weekend). The newest addition to the Bridges family, Beau, made his first visit to our house.
The Somasi family came over tonight for dinner, ping-pong, and an exchange of gifts. The other big news of the day: Finn pooped in the potty.
We went to see Santa today. The first thing Finn said to Santa was, "I peed in the potty!" Eventually he also told Santa that he wanted a train set for Christmas. Elliot told Santa that he wants a remote-controlled car. Here are some photos...
Sometimes at bed time, when Finn Diddle is not quite ready to go to sleep, he gets out of bed and comes to his bedroom door...and falls asleep on the floor:
Here's a photo I borrowed from Grandma B. It's of Finn, Elliot, and Coby playing in the leaves on the day of Coby's birthday party in October:
Here are some photos from Thanksgiving at Aunt Robin's house:
Today was Midland's Santa Parade. The boys got more candy today than they did at Halloween. Tonight was Movie Night, and the film was Disney's The Sword in the Stone. It seemed to a rather lousy version of King Arthur's story...all about goofy Merlin and his goofy magic and hardly about Arthur at all.
We had our first snow of the season a couple days ago. I guess it must have been about an inch.
Today Lisa was talking to Finn and telling him about going to Aunt Robin's house for Thanksgiving. She was telling him we would have pumpkin pie and turkey. He said, "Turkey???" She said "yes, everbody eats turkey on Thanksgiving." And he says in a distraught high pitched voice, "Noooooo. Turkey is an animal. We don't eat Turkey!" Lisa says he must be the future vegetarian in the family. In related news, a publisher has been charged with criticizing Turkey.
When Finn sneezes or has a runny nose, he gets a tissue to wipe the "bless you."
