Our first Thanksgiving with just our little family, and our first with all 5 of us. We missed seeing our extended family, but it was very nice to celebrate on our own.

Jack is playing basketball now. He is actually pretty good. His team is the Spurs. They are not good, but that's ok. They spend half the time doing skills workshops and only a little time on their half court games.

Sweet foster kittens

The four foster kittens we have right now (Zombie, Fog Machine, Itchy, and Scratchy) are some of the friendliest kittens we've ever met. Zombie and Fog Machine are deep grey while Itchy and Scratchy are pure black. They are all beautiful!

We had a very busy Halloween weekend - parade and party at Jack's school, two parties with friends, and trick-or-treating. The boys wanted to be Ben 10 aliens (their favorite superhero characters) and Cate wore the little pumpkin costume that all three have worn for their first Halloween. I made the Ben 10 costumes - I was happy with how they turned out and the boys had a lot of fun wearing them.

Jack tries on his Ben 10 Four Arms costume.
