Lauren is 14.5 months old now and super cute.  She's learning to say words now (her current favourite is "cat" since we're babysitting two cats for friends for the next few weeks).  She's also growing quite quickly... debating whether we need a new crib for her or not.  (See photo below.  What do you think?  You know what they say about small space = small people.)

Lauren standing up by herself

About three weeks ago, Lauren learned to stand up by herself. See Video 377 of Lauren showing off her new skills and being super pleased about it :)

Home-cooked Thanksgiving at Ethan's

On Nov 19, we enjoyed the BEST EVER turkey dinner at Steve, Annie, Ethan and Aaron's home. Lisa and her kiddies, Carol and her kiddies, and the Wang Gang all descended on their apartment for play and food. Thanks again for having us over! Cannot stop thinking about that turkey! Photos below :)

The kids dig in first. Love Ethan's funny face. Reminds me of Pop-eye.
Yummy home-made macaroni and cheese with breadcrumbs on top. Dee-lish!
As you can tell, Ethan loves guns and loves to shoot people.
Very creative "sight" on his lego gun made from a window.
Little Aaron looks EXACTLY like his big bro Ethan. He's so big now!
The party people say "Cheese!"
The awesomely amazingly juicy perfectly cooked succulent 16 pound turkey. That butter sauce is no joke.
Yummy ribs.
The spread. Turkey, cranberry sauce, beans, salad, macaroni and cheese, ribs, sweet potatoes, corn, and more!
The kids finish up... time for the adults to dig in!
We put the electronic babysitter on for the kids. There were 8 kids in total (Michael not pictured below).
Funny pic of Vanessa.
Me and Carol share a sisterly hug.
