Thanksgiving #19

Amidst it all, I'm thankful for the quotidian.

Oliver works on his boat for the raingutter regatta with the Cub Scouts. Unlike some of the other scouts (ahem), he does it all himself, and it shows.

Henry writes his Christmas list. He looked up and said You know, I don't believe in Santa Claus.

    "Sophie, Enduring"--I agree it's a great title for a book.

  6. I was looking at this post after dinner tonight and Oscar appeared at my shoulder just as I scrolled down to the picture of Sophie. He didn't see "Sophie, enduring" just her face and was mesmerized. "Who's that?" he wanted to know, a smile on his lips. "The daughter of a friend of mine". "Oh, do I know her?" smile growing bigger. "No, why, do you think she's pretty?" He turned red then, and got really embarrassed and started trying to hide the smile. "Yeah, so!?? Don't tell DAD!!" And then he chased me through the house in fits of giggles to make sure I wasn't sneaking off to tell "Dad".

    They're all beautiful Elizabeth! And you, and your table and your words!

  10. Jacob just informed me that he doesn't believe in Santa. "Because he's not real. You are Santa. Right?" LOL

  12. I'm afraid that in the past, we've been the "ahem" family, but this year, Jude did some of the sanding, much of the glueing and most of the painting. Missed you at the Regatta.

    Henry is ALREADY writing his Christmas list? That boy is prepared! Jude writes his about 4 days before Christmas, then I freak out trying to get all the surprises he pulls!

    Sophie always just takes my breath away.
