We're alive and disease free

Well, we had a nice Thanksgiving in Bellingham alone. Sadly, because of the snow we didn't venture down south to our Seattle-ish area families for Thanksgiving. 

We did get to Skype though. I made a meal for 15 and--we had lots to leftovers. Enoch didn't eat the meal though. He ate the crackers from the cheese plate (appetizer). 

Enoch is progressing on learning to speak and says a few words well--and some understandable--and the others are really good tries! "Apple" is spoken like a true Washington born babe. 

We are preparing for Christmas--have a paper chain counting us down until Christmas, a tree with homemade and value village ornaments--and just need 'nifty giftties' for the big day. 

Here's a picture of Enoch last year at Christmas 2009!

Here's Enoch now! (still my baby)

We've gotten a new calling in church---we're Nursery leaders. We work with all the 18 month old-- 3 year olds in the ward. Enoch got to start early since we're in there. He'll be 18 months old at the end of December. Below is a picture of the animal in Nursery on Sunday that were set up by a child (not Enoch) as to look like they all wanted to get back into the bin they came from. I found it to be artistic and took a picture.

Lastly, I've included a picture of a big fort we made that wrapped around the couch---at some point in the Thanksgiving break. Enoch was interested for about 10 minutes...and we took it down pretty soon after since we wanted our living room back if he wasn't interested. The cardboard box tunnel holds his attention a little longer since we throw balls in side--passing them through to someone waiting to toss them right back (mom and dad's game).

That's all the update for now!

Congrats on your new calling. You guys will be great! BTW, that's my calling, too, (sans the spouse) so if you ever want to swap ideas, let me know.
