The Claytivity

Each year we get together as a family and create what I like to call a claytivity. We decide who has what characters from the navitiy and we create them out of clay. This is our fourth year doing this and this year the navity is for me and Ryan. I have to say it is the cutest one so far. I didn't get any pics of this year's claytivity, but I will post them when I have the finished product. This is what we call a catmel. It's a bread between cat and camel. Ryan made this the very first year we were doing the claytivity and let me just tell you, that is the talk of our family. We love the catmel. Even the kids can see something so special about it. Another side of the catmel. This pic you can see his adorable little face a little better.

Pies and Secrets

Every year there is a tradition with me and Alesha to make our own pies for Thanksgiving. This year I took orders from both families and ended up with 7 pie requests. That's a lot of pies to build, just so you know. Sheesh also had her family's pies to make as well. It's always a blast when we do this. We get to hang out, laugh hysterically at our mistakes (we couldn't stop talking long enough to take the crust out of the oven. It was one of our tragedies) and then look at our wonderful creations. I have to say this year the pies were my favorite! YUMMY!
Tina and I were shopping at Victoria's Secret today and Chloe was LOVING it! It was so cute. She loved carrying our bags. Don't you love that her shirt matches the bags and don't you even worry, she is bare foot in the mall! GROSS. It was very cute though. She didn't want to give those bags up. She hung on tight to them for quite a while, until she saw Santa of course.
