Park and Potatoes

We spent the morning yesterday at the park. What a fun time we had! It was incredibly windy, but no one cared. They played hard, ate their picnic lunch, and played some more.



I made for the first time some baked sweet potato fries. They were delicious. However Abby was so tired by the time dinner rolled around that she didn't know what to do with herself. When she's tired she does this face rubbing thing where she takes her hands and puts them on her head and swipes them down her entire face. Well, she did that again, but this time they were full of sweet potato. Poor girl was covered in them.


William is getting a bit obsessed with Christmas and Santa. He desperately wants to get our tree up. (We have to buy one yet, and there are no lots open!)
This morning he said to me,
"Halloween is over?"
"Yes, it is."
Thinking for a moment....
"Christmas is here?"
"Not yet. After Thanksgiving"
"What's Thanksgiving?"
"It's when we thank God for all our many blessings."
More thinking....
"I don't want Thanksgiving. I want Christmas. Oma is going to have a Christmas tree for me!"

No pressure, Mom.
