It's Tough Being A Dinosaur...

It's Tough Being A Dinosaur... and Onyx takes his job very seriously. 

 Roaring and everything...

 ...But he is a pretty good dinosaur...

...When he is not busy being a bear.

Missing Summer

I know it just ended, but I guess I wasn't ready.
I miss our garden. The peas, carrots, tomatoes and squash...
I miss Jared bringing in kale from outside to put in my smoothies I was so obsessed with during pregnancy.
I miss the walks, the sunglasses and the parks...

I can't even explain how good food tastes that YOU, yourself grew.
Carrots, squash and peas...
How I miss you.

...and then there were the flowers.
Long gone now.


Our neighbors adopted two new kittens named Dixie and Dorothy.
They are almost full cat size now, but still stuck in that gangly teenage phase. 

I hate to say it, but I also miss my belly in a way.
BUT it's so much better to be able to hold Onyx and snuggle him face to face.
I wouldn't give that up for anything. 

I even miss the summer bugs!
I can't wait to go to Arizona for Christmas. We are going to be staying with Golden Gram and neither
 Jared or Onyx has ever been to Arizona, and I've never been during the winter! Oh to see the sun again...

This Month At Our House...

Onyx is growing insanely fast. I am soaking up every moment. He is just lovely.


A mushroom Jared carved, now sitting on our entertainment center.
Talent man. Talent.

Below are some shells and what nots from our window sill that I picked up during our summer walks,
along with some paper owls I made for Halloween and two tickets to the fair from right before 
Jared and I finally started courting. Haha courting, who says that anyway?


I love looking down at that fluffy little white haired kid.
Being a family is amazing.

Scenes From Thanksgiving

The little guy is in my Ergo carrier. That thing is a life saver!

My MIL really knows how to decorate! 

Onyx's Grandpa and Great Grandpa right there!

The pears were our place holders on the table. Cool right?
Cousinly love!




Food, games and family...
It was a good Thanksgiving indeed.
