This Weeks Highlights with Savannah

Savannah meets (scary) Santa. . . .But I heard him exclaim, ere he DOVE out of sight "Holy Reindeer girl, those are some lungs!"

We participated in the 'Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade" --Red Neck Style!

Going for a "work off the turkey" trot
"Savannah, do you need your diaper changed?" (This is how she assumes the position)

Can't tell which one is bearly there...Savannah is putting together her 'Princess Bear'

Still out for our Turkey Trot

Savannah talking to Daddy while he is at work.

Always a good helper, Savannah helps make the bed.

Ah, Oh, Baba.....needed a diaper change.

Sportin' the new hat that Nana sent while getting ready for the next Broadway performance.

Leaving the mall after spending time (and $$$) at Build-a-Bear Workshop.

Most recent Book Signing

Well, Christy had her second book signing last Wednesday, and it went rather well. It didn't go as well as the first, in part because we had less time to get it out there. But the good news about it was that the only person Christy knew who bought a book was Mom (or so I understand, I had school so I couldn't be there, what a bummer). She sold 11 of 15 books in 2 hours. Not to bad. She also had her first interview by a newspaper, it was the weekly Berthoud newspaper, so it wasn't a huge thing, but it was a good start, and good practise for her. I'll post the article once I have it, or I'll make Christy put it up.

Ricky the Raccoon!

So I was camping this weekend and as the sun went down the racoons came out. As many as 4 at a time were running all around the campsite looking for food. One, Ricky we'll call him, was able to get away with some garlic. He hauled it up into a tree hiding it on a limb somewhere. So the next morning, I went looking for it. Never was able to find it, however, Ricky was back wanting more. Upset that my Dutch Oven meal was flavorless (lacking the garlic) I still went "out on a limb" for the little rascal and fed him some carrots.
