November 2008

We’re slackers! I’m sure no one even bothers coming to our blog anymore since we haven’t updated in a month. First I’d like to say Happy Birthday to Emily. She turns 25 today! We also want to thank her family and my parents for their visit this weekend. We enjoyed the company and the fun. We have a lot to blog about and I am trying to decide the best way to do it. If you’re the type that is just interested in pictures then just head over to our Picasa albums here, and here. Otherwise, sit back and relax as I take you through November in the Stubblefield home.

Jackson discovered the ice cream van. You should see his face when he hears the familiar song. It truly is like the pied piper is calling him. We have a very interesting ice cream lady

Sarah came out after putting Lacey down for a nap to find Jackson on the counter with a pan and eggs. He really likes to cook and I let him crack the eggs when he helps me.

Lacey enjoys feeding herself. She hates being spoon fed now and prefers pizza, pasta, crackers, sweet potatoes and bananas. She’ll eat a large banana all by herself.

My parents and the Lyon family came for Thanksgiving. I had the pleasure of cooking and carving my first turkey. I made sure to find as many tutorials online as possible and I must say it was very tasty.

Sarah did everything else (except the rolls and pies – thanks mom). It was all very delicious. Everyone loved the carrot casserole and the sweet potatoes were very good.
Jackson enjoyed entertaining his cousins. The twins provided hours of running, chasing, and wrestling. He is bored out of his mind now they are gone.

One of the many “dog piles” from this weekend.

We visited the temple lights the day after thanksgiving.

Olive Garden for Emily’s Birthday.

Zoo Lights at the Phoenix Zoo.

Thanks to my parents and Emily for the fun weekend. We had a blast.

  1. Wow! It looks like you guys had a great weekend with LOTS to do!! We missed you at all of our festivities, but since we get you all the time, I guess it’s only fair to let Micah’s family get a turn every once in a while!! See you soon!!

  2. I love how the fridge & cupboards are still open- I think he is hinting that he is going to be a chef when he grows up:)

  3. so fun! reminds me of jared and hannie chasing down the ice cream truck this summer. we’re just glad they finally caught it before it stopped coming around. nice thing about AZ, ice cream truck season lasts a bit longer. loved all the picks of your thanksgiving visit. we have a photo just like that, with jared at the bottom of the pile. those Lyon boys know how to have fun!

  4. Wow! You guys had a busy weekend. We missed you but only a few more weeks until the cabin. Fun, Fun!

  5. I also forgot to mention that Friday we went to see The Polar Express at the IMAX in Tempe. It was fun and all the little boys behaved very well. Jackson even kept his 3D glasses on the whole time.

  6. We had so much fun with you guys. Thanks for having us!!! The boys sure miss playing at your house. I hope they didn’t manage to get any rocks into your pool. =)

  7. Fun times! We’re sorry we missed spending Thanksgiving with you. I can’t believe we never made it to see the Zoo Lights during the 3 years we lived in AZ.
