Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Vana and Joe are finally back in Athens, and they hosted Thanksgiving at their place. Joe baked one turkey, and smoked the other!

Deviled eggs!

Cheryl brought antipasta!

Mer made apple pies. Mmm!

Family time!

Hello, beautiful birds.

Yang, Felix, Kate and Ben.

Telling stories before dinner.


Putting the finishing touches on things.


Making drinks!

Matching outfits!

Before dinner, we hold hands and share what we're thankful for.

Definitely thankful for this delicious plate of food!

Toasts and laughs!

Yang fell asleep so we tried to wipe a dollop of whipped cream on his forehead. Too bad he woke right up!

Cooking Club Fall Brunch

Emily hosted this month's cooking club, and we enjoyed a Fall-Themed Brunch! I made a citrusy salad with savory oat crumbles and pomegranate seeds. I totally didn't plan to match my sweater to my salads, but I was pretty stoked that it worked out that way!

Mmm, salady!

Summer made spicy carrot dumpling soup!

Yumi made breakfast enchiladas. So gooey.

Emily made a spinach and onion strata.


Valerie made sticky buns. We couldn't stop eating these!

Nancy made maple bacon crack.

Charlotte even participated! She and Emily made pumpkin muffins together!

Happy Birthday, Little Kate!

Little Kate turned 9 yesterday! She's a busy lil' lady, so we waited until tonight to celebrate. Ben and I got her these ribbon wands as a gift. They were a hit!

We all liked playing with them! Maybe she'll go to the Olympics one day.

We had a pizza party for dinner, followed by TEXAS SHEET CAKE! Yum!! Make a wish!

Mmm, sprinkles.

Happy birthday, Kate!
