This year we had Thanksgiving at the Gulbrandsen's. Our family is getting bigger every year. There are new spouses, new girlfriends, and new babies. This year at the table - which was actually four tables end to end - there were 35 people with at least 11 more missing! Auntie Bev made us stick with tradition and go around the table and say what we are thankful for. This was met with groans, but we did it.

Of course I am thankful for family and health, a good husband, and a pretty good baby (most of the time), but what I said I was thankful for was that Justin works hard, and sometimes long hours, so that I can stay home with Hunter. I really am thankful for that. I'm so glad I get to stay home and see all the little milestones in his life.

This video features Hunter and his little cousin type people Anders, Garrett, and Lily

Since I am off Facebook for the moment (don't ask me why, because I won't tell you) I thought I should revisit my blog, which is really Hunter's blog. So here are a few shots of what we've been doing lately.

Hunter has been feeding himself for about two months now. It gets messy - much to Justin's horror- but most of it goes where it should.

Hunter can get on his motorcycle by himself now, and he loves rockin'

He also loves getting into things he shouldn't, but parking space is limited.

Hot fun in the summer time

Here are a ton of pictures from our trip to Gilroy CA. We had a great time with Brian and Elizabeth and Sienna. The visit seemed to go by too quickly.
