Whoooaa, only 2½ weeks til Thanksgiving! Unfortunately Bobby is working. Sucks...It never is the same without having him on holidays. But he had to take one for the team so he could take off time for Christmas in Seattle! It won't be that big of a bust since I am going be cooking him a whole turkey feast. He will have his own little Thanksgiving at work.

Though, this year I am going to try out a new turkey recipe (not to mention I got my free turkey from Acme the other day.JOY): Roasted Turkey with Maple Cranberry Glaze -- by Paula Deen. I will be making his absoulte favorite pineapple stuffing (which isn't really a traditional Thanksgiving dish, but I like to make whatever his heart desires). Of course some yummy mashed potatos & my famous pumpkin pie. It's funny because I told him what I was planning on cooking for him and he got so excited that he said 'no way i'm not sharing any of my food with people at work'. I laughed.
Sebastian & I will no doubt be spending our Thanksgiving at the Schuler residence :)

Today was a very eventful day for us. We ended up just waking up, feeding Sebastian his morning bottle & than heading out to have some breakfast. We met up with Bobby's co-worker, Greg who recommended a diner called Tom Jones! (I was pretty much sold by the name hahha). Sebastian ordered some scrumptious french toast & shared some of my hash browns! Breakfast was a success.
After breakfast we traveled maybe 5 miles from the diner to Boeing at Ridley Park, PA where the SCCA Auto-X (I'm not even going to pretend that I even know what all that even means) was held. Basically it's for anyone to run their car through an obstical course made up of cones to see how fast they can get through. It was a very advanced course so it was neat watching people try their hardest to get the best time -- best time that we saw while we were there was 27 seconds, which is exremely good!
Here are some pictures of our time there...
Sebastian had the best view!
...Sebastian's loved seeing all the Go-carts.
He really is so much fun!
VW Scirocco (my favorite car at the event)
Bobby & Greg being men (grunting & what not..)
Action shot--Sebastian's face is priceless!
Our day ended at the park, like usual. I swear Sebastian has so much energy. It is always such a fun time with him & I feel blessed to have such a sweet boy!
