A lot of people ask me how I can tell Hosea and Micah apart.
Some of my friends have come up with this.
Hosea looks like Mr. Vargas and Micah looks like me,
 and since Micah and Martha both start with M's that is how they keep them straight. But of course Micah and Hosea look a lot like each other too, they are identical after all. But for those of you that think that Micah does look like me, he actually looks a lot like my brother Tim. A lot of people say that we look alike as well, so this makes sense. Here are some pictures we took on Thanksgiving.
same bone structure?

Loved both the faces in this one

And here are some other pictures from Thanksgiving. We hosted here at my house and if you missed it, you missed out. I do not think the pictures can convey how delicious everything was.

two kinds of turkey both equally yummy (one traditional, one brined and smoked )

Mr. Vargas' awesome stuffing, where he used Ritz crackers and spinach
These potatoes were sooooo good, he used cream cheese instead of milk
green bean casserole, heavy on the fried onions just like I like it!

Great sweet potatoes brought by the Siegels

beautifully delicious salad made and brought by Pawpaw and MeeMaw

I didn't take any pictures of the desserts, but they were so good. So I'll leave you with a picture of these sweets instead.

I could just eat them up :).

When we asked the kids what they wanted to be for Halloween Judah knew right away he wanted to be Sherlock Holmes, he had a very clear picture in his head of what he wanted to look like.

Josiah was a little bit harder, he wanted to be something scary but we decided that is still too young to be scaring other children. We finally came to an agreement on Batman.

At first Avrah wanted to be a movie star, and then she wanted to black kitty, then she wanted to be a princess, a rock star, a ballerina, what she wanted changed just about every day, so we mixed everything up and made her a rock star, princess kitty.

Ever since we saw Despicable Me we knew that is what Hosea and Micah should be for Halloween. But since we didn’t like any of the costumes (and there weren’t very many of them) so we made our own, they were supposed to also have black hats too, but it was like 80 degrees out so that didn’t really work.

Oh and I even joined in on the fun as La Pandita Bonita
