Keeping Autumn Alive

Because I'm a champion of underdogs, I've been feeling a little badly for autumn. I really think it gets the short end of the stick. It's basically getting cheated out of a whole month - November.

And the culprit is Christmas. What a show off! It just can't be happy with seizing the country for a month, it's slowly pushing Thanksgiving out the seasonal door. How can a scarecrow compete with jolly, old St. Nick? How are dried cornstalks supposed to compete with all things that glisten? Really, it's just saddening.

So in honor of the underdog autumn , I'm throwing caution to the wind and I'm going to brazenly post some pictures from Thanksgiving. 'Cause I'm fearless like that...

Abigail met her California uncle, Jordan, for the first time!

A cute treat I just had to make. My nephew, Brian, helped.

I got the recipe here, from Amy's Finer Things.

Samuel after cute turkey treat.

My niece, Lorelai. She's soooo cute!

My boys getting a tractor ride from Papi (my step-dad).

Abigail playing with Mima (my mom).

It was a great weekend. And we got an extra surprise recently when we found out that my sister Jessica and her family will now not be leaving until a couple days after Christmas! (I've talked about the here and here, too.)

According to my sources, there's still four more days left of autumn...

By the way, do you know how hard it is to find candy corn in mid-November? Very hard. It's all candy canes by then.
