Thanksgiving is over and BOY do I feel skinny! I mean, seriously, could my pants be any looser?? Time to start eating, I think! (please note the heavy sarcasm). : ) Actually, I didn't really pig out. Isn't that amazing?? Something about having to feed my baby during dinnertime and having to reheat my plate made me not go for seconds. Boo.
On the way to my Mom's, we decided Aidan needed a car break. We took a random exit, looked on the GPS, and found a park nearby. Well... it turned out to be the perfect location for an impromptu photo shoot!! Ignoring the fact that Aidan was STILL sick, that we had to get up to my Mom's, and that we were not in our "outdoor Christmas photo shoot" clothes, I think we got some great pics with our *manual lens, and maybe even one for our Christmas card!
*that means we had to focus every picture ourselves. Do you know how hard that is???
If you're a MckMama follower, I am always amazed by her picture-posting restraint. You know she has 100 incredible pictures to share, but only picks 1 or 2. I do not have said restraint. I will post until my limit overflows, which in turn will force me to delete some older posts. Grrrr.
Without further adieu...
Who invited baby Shrek to our photo shoot?
The carrot dippers I made!! I saw them in a Family Fun magazine at the doctor's office (click on link for article). They used hummus, though, which would've been better than my ranch dressing... my poor little carrots sank!! And I had to make one pea pot for my pea pod!
Below is the current state of Aidan's pulled-up lip and thick, raised scar (click on picture for enlarged view). Brooke at Dinkypops No More! was asking about his surgeries, so I thought I'd make a short list of cleft-related posts here (and maybe later I'll put them on my sidebar): discovering Aidan's cleft at birth, LOTS of pictures of the first two months, cleft lip - surgery day, recovering, stitches out, nose stents out here and here.

Aidan's on the wall!!!!
And how much did I buy on this busy shopping day, you ask? Nothing, except for a movie ticket. My mom and I went to see "Twilight" and I was in heaven (mostly because we had the enormous theater almost to ourselves!!). It was good; not sure about the casting of all the characters, but good enough for entertainment purposes. The giggly teens behind me liked it anyway. : )
