Apple Cup

The day after Thanksgiving was the Apple Cup (WSU vs UW) in Seattle at the UW.  So the Faw Clan made the trek over to go to the game.  It was a great day with great weather!  Does anyone notice what looks out of place???  Meara is wearing purple… she is a UW student….the rest of us are Cougar Fans!  But we love her anyway, even though we lost!
 This stadium was finished in April and is very cool and huge!  It also overlooks the water and so it's a very cool setting as well.
 WSU on the Field!

Give Thanks

This year for Thanksgiving, Mom was in Oklahoma (watching Jane Doe in the Futurity and Dad went to Idaho to hunt) so we headed to Jolene's for a feast.  On the menu was the usual amazing turkey day fare, including Eric's bbq turkey and stuff in', Jolene made green bean casserole, rolls, mashed potatoes, gravy,  I made a apple waldorf salad, southern baked sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and for dessert we had caramel apple pie and cranberry blueberry pie.  Amazing! 
We have so much to give thanks and be thankful for this year!!!
 Adelaide asked to do a silly face photo

I love making table decor…this year's included craft paper leave placemats and table cards and give thanks silverware holders.
 This is what happens with too much turkey!
 We painted turkey hands with the kids!

Leaves, Leaves & more Leaves

This time of year means a few things and one of those is the unbelievable amount of leaves that we have need cleaned up…it is a multiple day project.  It was a beautiful day so we got to work.  I will say that I am ready for snow after all the leaf clean up. 
 Maddy is an excellent leaf picker-upper.

GiGi's Christmas Baskets

Grandma GiGi makes awesome Christmas baskets and we decided when she came up for a visit we decided that we would make me a basket! And when I say we, it was really GiGi making the basket, I had nothing to do with it.  And I love how it turned out!
