a few photos from Thanksgiving

Here’s a fun batch to begin with!

Before Lena’s Uncle Jonathan proposed to Lena’s soon-to-be Aunt Erika (!!!), he practiced his proposal for Lena.  She loved it all, including trying on the diamond ring. 

I took some photos of my first completed order for Making Room {Handmade}, a pair of knitted fingerless gloves that my mother-in-law requested for a co-worker.

Lena’s pulling herself up on everything these days.  She loved climbing up onto the hearth this Thanksgiving… under careful supervision!

Meanwhile, Jonathan proposed and Erika accepted!  Their faces hurt from smiling, but they tried to smile a little more for a loooot of photos at the Garber household.  Elliott popped the cork off a bottle of champagne and we toasted to their lives together.  Congrats, you two!

They had to smile for many, many photos that evening.

That Thanksgiving weekend Jess had an inflamed tibia after running a half marathon.  She tried to stay off it… sometimes more successfully than others…

Thanksgiving Day came at last!  The table was set…

… and the guests arrived, all admiring of little Lena.

And we feasted!

The aftermath:

And the parking lot outside the house:

An after-dinner walk to work off some of those calories.  Lena is already an avid frisbee “player,” and her daddy rejoices!

More to come soon!
