Thanksgiving in Arrowhead

I wish I had been here for Thanksgiving, Joel and I missed the Polar Bear Plunge! Last year Joel braved the frigid waters of Lake Arrowhead with my aunts and uncles to do a plunge in the lake and swim to the shore! (I was pregnant so I had a GREAT excuse!) Joel had to work Fri and Sat so laura and I came up by ourselves. We heard that there was a 30% chance of snow, but no one belived it! Look what we woke up to!

We had a fun time putting up the Christmas lights, Laura was so bundled up!

Pumpkin Pie

Here is my first Pumpkin Pie! I had a little dough from the pie crust left over, so I used the mini pie cutters in Pumpkin, Leaf 1 and Leaf 2 for a decorative topping. I think it looked great! Just waiting to eat it!

Ha Ha! This reminds me of our Christmas pictures we took last year. We drove around with our friend Liz Pollock and stopped at cool houses that were well lit. We jumped out, sat on their lawn, took some pictures, and drove away before they had time to come outside! We ended up with two favorites and so half of our friends and family got one picture, and the other half got the second picture. We would have DEFINATELY stopped at the left house for photos! Thanks again Liz!

Bundled Up

It was freaky cold last week, so while Joel got Laura dressed in the morning he picked out very warm clothes and a great hat! She was so excited! She loves to practice her standing!
