We all had a ball! Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays well, for Mothers Goose anyway, Lucia has since declared St. Patrick's Day as her favorite (must be the Irish roots). Anyway, it is a great time to stuff your face full of yummy food, watch football, and hang with the family... what more could you ask for? This year we resurrected an old Leary Thanksgiving tradition - - the famous Toilet Bowl backyard football game. Apparently when the Learys were littles, they would vie for the honor of the Toilet Bowl trophy, which now that I think of it we'll need to fashion a replica for next year... and teach the participants how to play football. Minor details. After the "game" came the food and real football... and then the post meal coma (which thankfully was not captured on film). With the cousins in town we branched out for some 10-pin fun... and while this pic came from a New York business trip, truer words were never said. Hope you all had as much Turkey Day fun as we did. Now to gear up for the chaos that is December...

Yeah, I can't explain it either. My daughter is fascinated by scorpions. So much so that she wanted one on her birthday cake. Mmmmm, yummy. Well, if scorpion cake doesn't whet your appetite, perhaps you'd enjoy a tiny venomous arthropod encrusted in sugar? Yes, that is a real scorpion... why would you want to eat it, that I cannot answer... but the kids loved them (the parents, perhaps not so much). Anyway, Luce had a fantastic extended birthday month with visits from Aunties and Uncles and Nonnes and Pappas all bearing gifts of course. At one point Carmen moaned, "when is it not going to be Lucia's birthday?!?" That's the thing about having a November birthday, it kinda kicks off the holiday season... which leads me to my next post: THANKSGIVING!
