Thanksgiving Day

On Thanksgiving day (with both our Thanksgiving dinners behind us) we got to spend some time together as our small family of three.  We went out for a yummy lunch (thank you McDonalds - i said yummy, not healthy) and then we went out for a walk...


It was so pretty and the weather was perfect.


Tracen slept the whole time



it was hard to believe that we were still in Calgary, it felt like we were out in Bragg Creek or Kananaskis.




We sure have a lot to be grateful for and it was so nice to relax and be together as family.



 Tracen's new favorite thing is to sit like this in bed.  He could sit like this for so long, and seems to like to be able to see what is going on - he just seems like he is getting so big so quick!


We did have an appointment this week and our not-so little boy weighed in at 11 pounds (he gained 2 and a half pounds in about 3 weeks) and he is 23 inches long and his head is 40cm around.  His hair continues to look like it is receding in the front and he sometimes looks like an old man. He is just so cute, we sure love him!

OH MY GOSH. I can't believe you have your OWN family. When I saw the family pictures, at first I was confused... but you, Luke and Tracen are you own family now. CRAZY. Greg always talks about how we are our own family now, but I don't think I'll feel it until we have a baby. Crazy!
