We started this week with a quiet Canadian Thanksgiving dinner, made 100% by Rachel (except, I suppose, for the potatoes, which were left over from Sunday's dinner). We didn't get around to our traditional Thanksgiving FHE lesson because Miriam had a different lesson prepared already (since she taught YW/Sunday School on Sunday and in this house we recycle), but we did have an "underwear talk" focusing on giving thanks and we'll start our Thankful Tree soon...after Alexander's birthday.
Here's a picture of our Thanksgiving dinner:
And here's a picture of the beautiful pie Rachel made:
Phoebe is always so happy when Daddy gets home from work!
She is eleven months old today, which is hard to fathom, really. She's not walking yet, but she is a going concern, that's for sure and certain! She's always into everything!
She wants to follow her big siblings around wherever they go—inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs. She can say, "Up! Up! Up!" which sometimes means "Pick me up!" and sometimes means "Let's go upstairs!"
When she tries to do something too tricky and takes a little tumble, she lets out an angry little growl.
When she tries to do something too tricky and ends up actually getting hurt, she screams and screams and screams. She's been doing a lot of climbing lately...which has led to some victorious smiles as well as tragic tears.
Going "up, up, up!" is all she ever wants to do.
