Emily's First Spoon Feeding

We gave Emily her first cereal spoon feeding last night. She had been watching us eat dinner and smacking her lips so I thought it was about time. She did pretty well until she choked and threw it up. Better luck tonight! As you can see, she also has a new bouncy activity center that she has really taken to. Really, is there a cuter baby out there?

Gingerbread Apple Upside Down Cake

All of my siblings made the traditional pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, and while that is certainly a delicious treat, I decided to go out on a limb this year. I made the Gingerbread Apple Upside Down Cake from Smitten Kitchen's blog. Wow. It was perfect...not too cloyingly sweet, moist and easy. Awesomeness in a cake. Of course, I love anything with molasses in it. Really, anything at all.

A Walk in the Woods

This afternoon, my family went for a walk in a trail through the woods near our house. Unfortunately our camera is broken so I have no real pictures to show, but believe me when I say it was pure joy. I had Emmy strapped on and she was enjoying herself the whole way. We are going to try to make a habit of it when weather allows.

In other news, 2 of the 8 puppies are spoken for now. They are so super adorable that anyone who sees them can’t resist.

I am looking forward to another attempt at roasting a turkey…not at 450 degrees this year!

Swimming Lessons

Here is a taste of Emmy being super cute and looking like she is sky diving.
