Conversation with Jack:
Jack: Mommy, Why do angels have steering wheels on their heads?
Me: Steering wheels? Do you mean halos?
Jack: Halos? Yes.
Me: They are a symbol of god's love (How's that for a quick answer?)
Jack: Halos. beat... beat....Can God still turn them back and forth?
Me: silence - speechless in front of 4 year old logic
Jack: Mommy, Why.... and we were off on a different topic

We traveled up to spend Thanksgiving with the newly dubbed Gramma and PaPa Blackmer

Jack found their maple tree irresistible and eminently climbable.


Lucky Lucy came with us. She fell in love with everyone.

Our church has a Thanksgiving Dinner the Friday before Thanksgiving. It is done family style with each table bringing the fixings to compliment the church provided turkey and stuffing. After dinner, each table nominates someone to go up and tell either what the table or they personally are thankful for. During dinner, Jack went and sat at his friend, Olivia's table. Somehow, he got nominated to go up for a table that wasn't even his.
What you see is Jack telling Amy, our pastor, and the congregation, that he is thankful for his dogs, bats and toys. I was walking a tired Annalise at the time, so we got in the original picture of Jack. Everyone else in the pic is looking at Jack except for Miss Eyes who is checking out what Quint is doing with the camera.

Apparently, I spent the entire day with a camera in my hand.
