Colby and I both had our own ways of expressing how much we missed him:
:: We celebrated Thanksgiving in Morgan at my sister-in-law, Heather's, house. All of Robb's immediate family were there and we had an amazing time. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the food because I was more interested in eating than documenting at that point. We brought pumpkin pie, shrimp salad (a Hays' family favorite), and green bean casserole. It all turned out great except for the green beans, for some reason they tasted like dirt. I chose to blame the recipe rather than my culinary skills.
(This picture makes me happy. I caught Natalie giving kisses to each of her brothers, she's such a sweet girl)
:: Robb's parents took us out to eat at Red Robin. Colby used crayons for the first time and successfully drew for two minutes before trying to eat them.
:: I turned 25 on December 2nd. I'm old now (I have two gray hairs and a one year old to prove it). Robb took us to a little place called Station 22 for lunch (really good food) and that night we got our Christmas tree!
I'm so excited to watch Colby discover the magic and wonder of this season
(Notice there aren't 25 candles, Robb forgot to buy more, so he wrote out 25 in Roman numerals: XXV...I love him so much)
