Happy Thanksgiving!

Giving Amy her full attention!

Thanksgiving Dinner

Ron (notice the Coca-Cola pj pants...he's not wearing normal pants too much yet because of his stitches...), Adam, Becky and Aubrey waiting for the dinner bell.
Bro. Wells (pastor) cutting the turkey.
Sis. Wells (pastor's wife) admiring her turkey!
Again this year the staff was invited to our Pastor's house for Thanksgiving Dinner. They provided the turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing (and not sure what all else) while the rest of pitched in with all the fixin's! I made a pecan pie, a pumpkin pie, green bean casserole, a beef cheese ball and a ranch cheese ball. Yum!! Thanksgiving is a little different for us living outside of America. We had school, bus run, came home and fixed food, went to dinner, had ensemble practice for Sunday morning, then went back to their house for fun and games. We stayed a little too late for having school today. Oh well, it was fun and I'd do it again!
I think it's so cute how she's holding on to her daddy... =)
All tuckered out on her first week of school.

Feed me more!!

2 months already!

Today was a big day for our little girlie. She is now 2 months old, attended her first day of school (with Mommy), had a Doctor's appointment (I'll tell about that in a minute), got 2 shots and behaved like a pro, and finally attended her first staff meeting (also with Mommy & Daddy)! I wasn't planning to go back to work until December 1, but in talking to the lady who is doing the class where I am now, I felt the need to go ahead and go back a week early. Plus, I'm feeling good and Aubrey is doing so well with everything. At her doctor's appointment today we found out that she is off the charts in her height and weight. Her head measurement is in the 97th percentile. She weighs 14 lbs. 12 oz. and is 24.5 in. long. We have ourselves a BIG girl! =)
This morning before school...she would smile at me until she saw the camera then she would just stare at it, so this is how I captured a smile!

Looking at the camera...

Talking to Mommy last night at Grandma and Grandpa Profitt's house

That's my girl!

Enjoying her sleep...

In Detroit

My parents were intending to take us back to Detroit on Saturday evening, however with revival starting for them on Sunday and them keeping the evangelists who were coming in on Saturday evening, it was going to make it really hard to get away, etc. So, Greg, Stephanie, Kaitlynn and Allison took us up there instead. Thanks guys! It was a fun trip!
I told my sister that now that we have Aubrey there's some payback needin' to happen! She has 4 kids which means I have changed TONS of diapers!!!!! Get it? One kid of mine vs. 4 kids of hers...mmm yeah. So, anyway, she was happy to start working on that payback. For me, that payback is nice...I'm not looking forward to other ways that I'll get it though...candy, loud toys, etc. =)
Aunt Stephanie giving Aubrey some words of wisdom...


"Boy they make it cold in these parts!"

I love my daddy!!!

Happy 1st Birthday, Allison!

We had the privilege of being with our niece Allison on her first birthday. She is such a joy to be around...always happy and now on the go! My brother, Eric, also celebrated his birthday that day, however they had to leave on Wednesday and their birthday was on Thursday. Our nephew Ryan celebrated his 9th birthday yesterday. We had parties for them on Tuesday before Eric's family had to leave. You can see pics from that party at my sister's blog. So, Happy Birthday to Eric, Allison and Ryan!! We love you all!


Every now and then, when in Cayman, I get this urge for a Godfather's dessert pizza. We have a Godfather's in Lima, but of course not one here in Cayman. I hadn't had one in ages, so this time when we were home Adam, Aubrey and I went there for lunch one day and got the buffet...that included the dessert pizza. I was one happy gal!'s the small things... =)

Fun in Cincy!!

Elliott really enjoyed watching, copying and playing with Uncle Adam.

While home, we made a quick trip down to Cincinnati to see Adam's brother and his family. We had a great time visiting together and eating at Buckhead. Elliott is getting so big and is absolutely adorable. He talks a lot and is quite a smart little cookie! Thanks for a fun time guys, we love you and look forward to seeing you again soon!!
