The Bridemaid Dresses...

After looking all over for a modest bridesmaid dress that we would all like, we have decided to make our bridesmaid dress.  This is the color that Jordan and Caleb have chosen! 
We found a very nice pattern and set to work on it.  We have the first dress almost done, and the second one started.  So far, it's going well.

What little brothers do with the left-over fabric...there's never a dull moment!

A Very Happy Thanksgiving

Our family had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. 
It was a relaxed, laid back day spent with loved ones, but it was a little bittersweet knowing it would be Jordan's last Thanksgiving with us.  But it made us all the more thankful to have everyone together and have her with us!

So we made a traditional Thanksgiving meal: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberries, rolls, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, apple pie, and did I mention mashed potatoes and gravy?  Hmm-hmmm good!

After the meal, we started up a game of Euchre.  It is our family's favorite card game, and we had just enough to start a Euchre tournament! 

While Jordan was enjoying her last Thanksgiving with us, Clancy was experiencing his first!
(As promised, a picture with his new haircut....) 

And every year, on the day after Thanksgiving, we go pick out a Christmas tree!

How about this one?!?
(Just kidding!)

After picking out our tree, we go for a wagon ride around the farm...

On the way home with our tree.... 

Although you can't really see the lights that well, there are quite a few on there!
