The best laid plans must at times be put aside, and then somehow, everything works out anyways!  Arden was sent home yesterday from daycare, vomiting with a stomach virus that had been going around.  She threw up every hour or so until 10:30 at night, and then slept relatively peacefully.  I had high hopes that she’d be able to go into daycare in the late morning (12 hours after last vomit), and then she had diarrhea – thus resetting the 12-hour clock. 

Mom and Dad were planning on coming over to go grocery shopping for our Thanksgiving meal anyways, so we just planned that Dad would wheel Arden around while Mom and I shopped.  She was in a remarkably good mood, and no more loose poops.  She fell asleep on my Dad for a bit, ate lunch, and then took a three-hour nap while Mom and I baked and prepped to our heart’s content.  The blue mask is because he’s allergic to the dogs, cats, and the air in general of our 90+ year-old home.

After she woke, we went to a local nursery to look at all their beautiful Christmas decorations and take pictures with Arden – a little tradition we began last year.  After Dave got home from work, Arden opened her present from Grandma & Grandpa – a Little People Farm that she LOVED!

Here’s what’s going to be on our Thanksgiving table tomorrow:

  • Turkey
  • Turkey gravy
  • Rolls
  • Pompano – Dave’s Thanksgiving fish
  • Praline sweet potatoes – recipe from Southern Living
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Stuffing (Stove Top – we’re so not purists around here!  It’s easier and we all like it pretty much as well as homemade.)
  • Broccoli cauliflower casserole
  • Pumpkin pie bars
  • Apple pie

What’s on your Thanksgiving table?

I got a lucky shot of Arden sitting on the steps to our side door.  Nothing fancy, I was trying to get some cute pictures of her playing in the leaves and she wandered off – silly model leaving the photo shoot!

We had a beautiful fall day in Michigan, so I decided to play around with my point & shoot camera and my favorite model.  Some models are notorious for being difficult to work with, and mine is no exception: 

We started out slow, with some blank stares 

Lifeless expression

Then we progressed to a series of shots of the top of her head.  Not that it isn’t a cute head, but I’d like to see more of her face.

Looking down

Still looking down

Then we have some action shots. 

Catch me!

Can I try?

Then at long last the shot I was looking for.  And even with some autumnal props! 

Finally!

I made the cuorduroy jumper and posted about it here.
