Interesting book by by Michael J. Mauboussin on how to recognize and avoid common mistakes when making decisions. Review coming soon…
TWAS THE NIGHT OF THANKSGIVING,
BUT I JUST COULDN’T SLEEP.
I TRIED COUNTING BACKWARDS,
I TRIED COUNTING SHEEP.
THE LEFTOVERS BECKONED -
THE DARK MEAT AND WHITE,
BUT I FOUGHT THE TEMPTATION
WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT.
TOSSING AND TURNING WITH ANTICIPATION,
THE THOUGHT OF A SNACK BECAME INFATUATION.
SO, I RACED TO THE KITCHEN, FLUNG OPEN THE DOOR,
AND GAZED AT THE FRIDGE, FULL OF GOODIES GALORE.
GOBBLED UP TURKEY AND BUTTERED POTATOES,
PICKLES AND CARROTS, BEANS AND TOMATOES.
I FELT MYSELF SWELLING SO PLUMP AND SO ROUND,
‘TIL ALL OF A SUDDEN, I ROSE OFF THE GROUND.
I CRASHED THROUGH THE CEILING, FLOATING INTO THE SKY,
WITH A MOUTHFUL OF PUDDING AND A HANDFUL OF PIE.
BUT, I MANAGED TO YELL AS I SOARED PAST THE TREES….
HAPPY EATING TO ALL – PASS THE CRANBERRIES, PLEASE.
MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY,
MAY YOUR TURKEY BE PLUMP.
MAY YOUR POTATOES ‘N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP.
MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS.
MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,
MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL

Brendon hasn’t been feeling well the last couple days – I think it’s because he is teething right now. After Nikki told Nicholas that little Brendon wasn’t feeling good, Nicholas offered some love
We went on our first family camping trip last week! Yes, real camping in a tent. We went to Many, LA at Toledo Bend Lake. It was a pretty camp site – right there on the lake. Mom & Dad brought their RV, while we had a tent. Everyone had a great time. It rained most of the days we were out there, so we didn’t get to go fishing or do some of the activities we planned, but we still enjoyed it. I’m amazed at how well both Nicholas and Brendon did – especially considering all the rain. A few photos:
We took the boys up to the fire department during our trip to Shreveport / Stonewall last week. Dad has been volunteer firefighter in Stonewall for many years now. Nicholas love his play fire trucks – but he was a little scared of the big fire trucks!
Little Brendon is now crawling all over the place, pulling himself up and almost walking! Just 8 months old and he seems so grown up. Amazing how fast it has gone – and what a good baby he is… never sick, eats like crazy, and is always happy and smiling.
