We has all the traditional items: Turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberries (which Brendan did try, the face he made was priceless), fruit & nut bread....
And of course after dinner someone had to take a nap.Poor Maddie couldn't take all the excitement. And then there is dessert. Brendan loves to eat the coolwhip out of the can, well this year he also gave some to Grandpa and Grandma Andrews; their faces, shirts.And then there is play time with the kids. Maddie just thought that the dog was so funny and after the first time she grabbed the dog, the dog did not come back.We hope that you had a great Thanksgiving too.

I am sure that I am missing a couple of things but I think that gives you an idea of how busy we are. I took the kiddies photo with my new 'Fall' background that I created this past week. Brendan is a Pirate and Maddie is a Butterfly. Here are their halloween pictures.

We were on the way up to Flint for Great-Grandpa Johnson's Birthday get-together and Brian has been itching to go and be the Great White Hunter Man. So we thought we would stop on the way up. Again Brendan did great and had a blast, Maddie napped and played with toys, mommy got to knit and daddy got to carry a gun in the woods. A good time all around. And of course here is a picture. :)

Brendan likes to count to three and have us do an under dog (push him and then go under the swing) and he gets all giggle-ie when he gets to three. And of course I just have to tease him and either do it too early or too late. He never knows when I am going to do it. But of course he then has to tell me that I am doing it wrong. Oh well.

To celebrate his birthday we took him out for pizza last night. But also he has been getting cards and packages the past couple of days and I think that is one of his favorite parts about his birthday.Of course Grandma and Papa Tatz all ways makes sure that his package gets here in time and Brendan was so excited about getting a big box. And he now has a new favorite shirt, and of course there was something in there for Maddie and he just as excited about that as well. Here is Brendan showing off his new duds.

I woke him up as Brian was making his first day of school breakfast, cinnamon Rolls. And he had his snack in his Batman Lunch box inside his Pirate Backpack and he was set to go. This school is a lot closer than the one last year just over a block and a half. So on nice days Maddie and I can walk to go pick him up. (I don't think that Brendan will be up for that much walking at 8 o'clock in the morning). School starts at 8:15 and we get buzzed in at 8:13 to put his bag and coat in his very own locker (they don't have locks) and I sign him in to class and they start out on the circle rug. And then class gets out at 11:15, again parents being buzzed in at 11:13. He likes his teacher and her aid, and there are lots of kids in his class so he should enjoy this school year. Here are some photos.

We went on our hunt, but first Brendan and Daddy had to figure out were to go.Madelyn had no problem with trusting their advice. She was happy just chewing on her seat strap. On our walk we spotted deer tracks and a couple of frogs. But the Treasure was located by Brendan in a thick part of the woods (see Mike this really does work out most of the time.).And Brendan got a frog toy as a trade item.
