Update Overload

I update the blog with everything that has happened this month that I was a slacker at. So you will have to click 'older posts' to view everything.

We were invited to join my Aunt and Uncle for Thanksgiving in Provo this year. It was great fun to relax and hang out with extended family. It was held at Charne's sisters house. So there were many South Africans at the party. Cynthia loved every moment of being there.

Here is the turkey on top of the cake that I made. It was made in a rush the morning of so I don't like it ever much. I think that it could have been so much better.

Cynthia loves Layne. She kept wanting to play with him.

Cynthia is marvelous at getting just about anyone to do what she wants them to do. Over the course of lunch, I think about 4 people fed her from her lunch bowl.

Layne and Cynthia playing outside. She followed him around most of the day. Every time Layne asked her if they could go inside she said no. If you enlarge this picture you can see the big smile on her face.

This just a quick video of Cynthia playing around at lunch. She would bounce from on person to the next.

Thanks for a great Thanksgiving!

Friday night, Layne came up for dinner. Ben's work gave him a ham, so we cooked it up and I tried my hand at making fried/roasted potatoes - the way my mom makes them. They were a success and tasted so good. Cynthia followed Layne around. If he went to the bathroom, she waited outside the door. It he was on the computer, then she was on his lap. I think Layne has made a friend for life!
