....since I updated this thing. Maybe I am not a very good blogger....sigh.
October: fairly uneventful I think. We didn't do much for Halloween since Tyson had the flu. We stayed in & fell asleep on the sofa watching Criminal Minds reruns. I made a very delicious coconut pumpkin bisque and garlic toasts. Not bad.
November: I turned 32 in November....I don't want to talk about it.
Us at the top of a very high hill - we walked up it. - Birthday weekendThanksgiving was really fun! We had 14 people in our tiny condo! YES FOURTEEN! Tyson's big sister & his 2 little sisters came down for the occaision. Spencer (who was in Seattle for the holiday) graciously offerd up his place for them to stay & use the kitchen. We could NOT have done it without him. THANK YOU SPENCER! Speaking of Thanksgiving, I think we have it mastered now. Tyson made the best turkey I have ever had....ever. Jonathan made 2 versions of his stuffing souffle' AMAZING! Shaun brought mashed potatoes and cheezey potatoes that were sinful. 3 cheeses...gruyere, blue cheese & havarti...um yeah. We made a LOT of gravy by simmering a dozen 'turkey butts' for about 3 hours the night before. First year ever to have gravy left over! Cindy made about 6 different cranberry varieties. All good. And of course yampples. Can't have Thanksgiving without yampples. This was followed by 4 different amazing desserts courtesy of Sue May, Jessica & Rebecca. WOW!
December: We traveled up to SF a lot in November & December (my b-day, band trip & Tyson's work Christmas party.) we have eaten a lot of oysters these past months....And some other very good things. Tyson found a very cool vintage jacket in a thrift store that Jonathan is making even cooler. I can't wait to see it. photos to follow.
We got our tree up. It's a much smaller one this year since I have my alley chair in the living room, and there is just less room now. I have a lot of ornaments left over, and the tree didn't fit in the stand....I had to rig a reducer from a PVC drain pipe part. Works pretty well with a couple of shims :-)
Wedding stuff is in the works. Picked up the invitations yesterday. They are SO AMAZING! I will take a picture of one when everything is all pulled together. Have to order my custom stamps and put it all together. Mom is done hand addressing all the envelopes. That lady is the best!
Well, that's all I can think of. Merry Christmas everyone!
