Well today's the day we put up the Christmas tree at the Dieter house. Jered and I both had the day off, and it was about time to deck the halls so to speak. Max loved all the lights of course and was a very good helper. I just don't know if he can resist those presents.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. Jered, Max, and I ate (and cooked)dinner at the Pregitzer's this year. We went a little bit nontraditional with the food but it was a great success! The biggest hit was a chipolata gravy and smoked turkey. After the food settled we all went over to Grandma Jo's house a brought an apple pie to share. Clare and I helped put up the Christmas tree and this year Jo got a new prelit one so it was super quick. It was a great time together and really put you in the spirit. We are truly lucky to live near to our families and we can spend time with them on the holidays.

Max was spider-man for Halloween this year, though he was reluctant at first to wear his costume. Once he figured out that he got candy dressed this way- there was no problem. We went trick-or-treating with my friend Tracy's girls in their neighborhood. As you can see by the pictures he got an amazing haul! (bad for mommy and daddy!)
