here's a boy who very much enjoyed his first tastes of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie.

he also discovered his spit bubble capabilities, which he takes very seriously.

and here's us attempting a family photo. we definitely have much to be thankful for. i hope everyone had a great thanksgiving weekend. :)

Here are some pieces of Christmas knitting I've been working on, which includes my very first lace piece. And that's all I have to say about that... can't give too much away, you know.

hooray for knitted pants.

here are the pants i finally finished for maximus. these were a fun knit once i acquired all the correct needle sizes.

i'm not exactly sure what this face is saying... i think it's a mix of him loving the pants, being impressed with himself for sitting on his knees without falling over, and fear that he is about to fall over.
