Turning 2

Thanksgiving marked the 2nd birthday of Charles. Bring on the Terrific Twos! (I can hope!) We went up to visit Grandma and Papa Gutierrez and the Martins. I love having them so close. The drive was nice, mostly foggy. After having so much rain it was a nice break. Charly was in charge of Charles cake. She did a great job decorating it. Charles didn't seem to know what to do.

He is so cute. Here he tried to blow out the candles. He had to have lots of help, but made a valiant effort!

This year we noticed how musically inclined he is so we got him a harmonica and kazoo. It took me a while to remember how to play the kazoo. Daniel had to help me. Charles loves the Harmonica. We inherited a hot cars race track so the Martins got him some cars to race. Everyone had fun playing with the cars. Grandma and Papa got him a new Sunday outfit. I am so glad. He grew out of his last church shirt a few weeks ago and I haven't been able to find one for him.
 Thanksgiving dinner was wonderful. I wish I could have brought some leftovers home. Alas. Rex had 2 of his men join us. It was nice getting to know them. Rex also brought a keg of root beer!

 Friday we avoided the crowds and helped Jessica move into their new house. It's a beautiful residence with a pretty park in the back. Jessica made a scruptious brunch and Charly made some wonderful cinnamon rolls. I got to help her a little. That was fun! We celebrated Mom's 60th birthday together. It was a nice weekend.
And just for fun here is a cautionary tale about frying turkeys:
