Turkey Day @ Michael's House

First of all, a big congratulations to my brother Michael and his bride-to-be, Angelina! They just got engaged Thanksgiving morning! The wedding is scheduled for the spring. We're super-excited to be (officially) adding Angie and RJ to the family!

This year, the Thanksgiving feast was held at Michael & Angelina's house. In staying with tradition, TOO MUCH food was made. This year, the feast included three turkeys - (yes, THREE), a ham and lots of side dishes. Two pumpkin pies, an apple pie and a carrot cake. Here are some pictures from the Thanksgiving celebration!

Gobble, Gobble! ;)

Preschool Field Trip #2 ~ The Urban Farm

Last Tuesday before Thanksgiving, Kaitlin's preschool class went on a field trip to The Urban Farm. It's a real, working farm located right here in the city!

They allowed younger siblings to join the preschool class, so that was an extra bonus for Zoey!

The girls had a great time! My dad was on vacation, so he was able to come with us too. "Farmer Donna" gave us a tour and taught us about the animals on her farm.
Here's a picture of Zoey petting a goat:

More goat petting: Grandpa and the girls:

Here's a picture of Kaitlin petting a chicken..
The lady in the yellow jacket is one of her teachers ~ Ms Christy. Farmer Donna is in the black jacket. Look at the mountains in the background. Beautiful!

Grandpa and Zoey:

Farmer Donna showed the kids a chicken egg that was "still warm".

A REAL turkey! This was definitely my favorite part.

You know with Thanksgiving just two days away, the jokes were flying about this guy. ;)

Checkin' out the cows:

OH MAN! The size of these pigs was absolutely shocking!

..and a QUACK (quick) video. ;)
What a fun field trip!

Basketball Video

Basketball! Lil All Stars

The girls joined a toddler/preschool basketball league ~ Lil All Stars.

Today was the first of five "practices". It was so cute! They gave all the kids a little shirt with their names on it to wear. Kaitlin was on the blue team, and Zoey was on the yellow team. They split the kids according to age.

The girls had so much fun and can't wait to go back. Here are some pictures...

WOWZA ~ Look at that form! ;)
