While waiting for the turkey to finish cooking on Thanksgiving Day, we decided to play Apples to Apples to pass the time. Nathaniel got a little bit bored so he decided to do this. I quickly remembered him doing the same exact thing a couple years ago so I decided to capture the moment.
Here's the original "hanging out" photo from when Nathaniel was still a year old! It was taken in October 2011. Oh how time flies! Look at his little itty bitty fingers and toes! See original blog post here.

I volunteered to help with Nathaniel's Fall (Halloween) Party at school and I just realized I never got around to sharing them. So here's a huuuuuge photo blog post since I am combining it with his Thanksgiving Party!
I brought homemade pumpkin-shaped shortbread cookies and the children decorated them. They also made popcorn balls and Nathaniel kept wanting to throw it like a snowball.
One of Nathaniel's classmates, Julian, really likes playing with him but they always seem to get in trouble whenever they are together. They are definitely all boys and in the photo where they were sitting on the rug (time out), they were in trouble for rough housing.
I know I signed up for the Fall Party but I swear I was "voluntold" to help with the Thanksgiving Party, too! I think it's because next month is Nathaniel's last month in school here in Georgia.
The kids had an option to dress up as an Indian or a Pilgrim. All week long, Nathaniel talked about wanting to be an Indian but at the last minute, he chose to be a Pilgrim. And they had the traditional Thanksgiving dinner: cranberries, corn, green beans, sweet potatoes, turkey (they had chicken nuggets).

These were taken during our last rest stop before dinner on our way down from Indiana to Georgia last month. We went the long way through the Smokies just for see the Autumn leaves. If you think it's awesome driving while it's snowing, then you have to experience driving through falling leaves! Autumn is quickly becoming my second favorite season (Spring is still number one!). It's such a nice welcoming break from the heat of the summer. And it's like mother nature is giving us this big show of colors before the dead of the winter.
