Here's the pictures from the pie event, though. Because Cody's pie is the featured photo on this news story. I'm proud. He's a champion baker, and I like it when people know that. He didn't win, but several judges remarked on how cool he is to put fish sauce in sweet potato pie.

Okay, let's go:
Christmas decorations! Most of ours are up. I was super brave and amazing yesterday morning and hauled everything out while Evelyn ran between the living room and the kitchen and kept trying to put the ornaments back in the boxes.
Christmas lights! I think this year we'll get Evelyn out and about more, and look at some displays.
My mom's birthday! Because that's a big deal.
Robert is graduating from nursing school! Also a very big deal.
I turn 30! It doesn't feel like it's that big of a deal, but I'm looking forward to it.
Chad has a birthday on the Winter Solstice! That's always a lot of fun.
Levi has a birthday! There's six years between us, which is really weird because he's turning 24. I'm officially not 25 anymore. I don't get it. So strange.
There's going to be Christmas parties and a baby in a Santa hat and presents and we're going to have to sing "Frosty the Snowman" with Evelyn's book at least 20 times a day. I can't wait!
I can maybe wait on the singing Christmas music with Evelyn. But it turns out she really, really does enjoy Christmas music so maybe I like that, too.
