10 month old heartbreaker

Okay, I know he's our son but he sure is cute. And will probably break some hearts someday.
Here's the proof: (Sorry Chris, pretty sure Avery took the lead on that one)

I just did some catching up on the blog (a little out of order) so scroll through for a few new posts.

Cookies and more cookies

The Knowles ladies gathered to bake - and bake we did. Some recipes were more successful than others but we were very proud of the fact that we never had to run to the store...all items were produced from what we found in our pantries!

Grandma teaching Maya how to stir the fudge - and Maya teaching Grandma that eating the fudge is more fun.

Bennett is crushing the peppermint candies - kitchen appliances that make loud noise are fun!

Especially once you figure out which button makes it happen!Reading the newspaper with the Uncles (aka the taste testers).

Turkey Day

Thanksgiving was a fun combination of both families this year. Here is Bennett and Grandpa getting excited about turkey and fixings.Lexie set the table - and made sure there was a special place for the smallest guest.
Eyeing all the goodies, wondering when the feast can begin (looking a little concerned that we might forget to share with him). A little cautious at first (it is the size of his leg)...But enjoying it! Teether/dinner - how convenient!Lexie helping with the yummy yummy sweet potatoes.

And post dinner lounging and snuggling was had by all!

Oh Christmas Tree

Riding on Grandpa's shoulders while we wait for Dad to come down the mountain from his quest for the perfect tree. Thank goodness it was sunny because it was COLD!
We got one!

Keeping warm all snuggled together for a little hiking.

Cousins obliging the posed first snow picture.

Warming up in the car. Look Mom, a mound of giant trees!

The limit was 12 feet tall - no limits on girth!

Helping Daddy with the lights.

Admiring our work!
