I couldn't manage to get both of them to smile at the same time. On Wednesday night Simon said he wanted to dress up for our big dinner and he wanted to wear a tie. Dylan jumped on the bandwagon as well. Simon also told me he wanted to be the one to answer the door when everybody got here so he could wish them "Happy...what day is it again?" Dylan kept his tie on for an hour or so after everyone got here, Simon was trooper and kept his on until bed time. It was a great Thanksgiving for us. We missed our friend Ken, who was a constant guest at Thanksgiving for about 5 years or so, but other than that it was great. Our friend Shane and his wife and son came over. Their son, Atticus, usually just clings to one of them whenever we're around, but he got down and played with all the other kids quite a bit, which was fun. After everybody left and the kids were in bed Faith and I were reminiscing over Thanksgivings past. I pointed out that last year at this time we were inside Jeremy's house while he was talking to the police and Ethan was hiding in the bathroom. Ah, good times. Hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving.
Here's a picture of Dylan about 3 minutes before the previously mentioned fall in the creek.
