By Popular Demand...

My computer is still on the fritz, and I am afraid my blog has been the biggest casualty. However, due to popular demand I spend the last 20 minutes waiting for this video to upload just for you! I'm pretty sure it was worth it though. Kennedy is sure cute. I can't believe how old she is and how many "big girl" things she's doing. She eats carrots, drinks from sippy cups (I guess it's more like showers from a sippy cup) and stands up like she's ready to take off walking any day. She loves to play with everything and has already proven a very curious kid. I am afraid to see what the combination of curiosity and mobility will do to my house and sanity. We shall see.

Also of note to the Clawsons, is the most recent round of job cuts at Ford. Tim is fairly sure we will find out Monday if he still has a job. Nothing like a little suspense to spice up your life. If Ford is smart and keeps Tim around we are looking at buying a car in the next couple of weeks so I don't go stir crazy.

Hopefully, the future also holds a revamped computer in which case I will have no excuse to slack on my blog. Keep your fingers crossed!

Back to Blogging

I checked my blog today and I can't belive how long since I last posted. Sure I have a lot of legitimate excuses (the least of which is my computer crashing) but it's a new year and I am ready to get back into blogging. I guess I better start by recapping the last month and a half.
Well, Tim wanted to get tickets to the annual Lion's thanksgiving football game, but unfortunaly we were unable to obtain tickets to that embarassing loss. (by the way congrats to the Lions on their record breaking season) So we settled for a cozy little feast for three (really only two since Kennedy doesn't have much of an appetite for Turkey yet).
I made Grandma's famous twisty rolls and lots of pumpkin pies. Tim was the bird master and cooked our 18 lb bird to perfection. You may be asking why we needed a 18 lb turkey if there was only two of us. Well, we did not need a 18lb bird to be quite frank, but the scheming poultry salesmen at the grocery stores make it cheaper to buy a giant bird than a small turkey breast. Oh well. Yea for leftovers!
After our meal we just relaxed the whole weekend, watching movies and decorating for Christmas. Tim would like to not that he did drag me to the day-after-thanksgiving-sales at 4 am. I ask "Was it worth it?"
