What a difference a year makes.

Canadian Thanksgiving 2008.
I let my hair dry naturally.
Brian needs to shave.
I wore brown, and Brian wore blue.
I made carrots.

Canadian Thanksgiving 2007.
I straightened my hair.
Brian really needs to shave.
I wore brown, and Brian wore blue.
I made carrots.

You both look younger this year. Is that weird for me to say? You look happy too. I hope that is encouraging because I know that you've been stressed out. You 2 are a beautiful couple!

Yes! You both DO look younger! Must be all those carrots. ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving!

How funny! I love that you two wore brown and blue both times. And this is something I didn't know...the Canadian thing. Or maybe I just forgot. I thought you were from the U.S. Or maybe you just celebrate with Canadian friends. Just as an aside, if my hair dried naturally like yours does I would NEVER blow dry it. Of course mine is stick straight so there's no chance of that! Mamadallama

I think you both look younger this year too. Au natural is good for your hair, then when it's straight, it's softer looking. You can't lose! Great couple!!!

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

headless mom - thanks! looking younger is a nice thing i'm thinking.

jozet - i never fix carrots! as in never ever. i made them last thanksgiving, once last week, then for this thanksgiving. 3 times in a year. i should totally make more and see what happens!

joe - when brian wears brown he says he feels like a big pile of poop. he wears brown a lot. i wonder what he is saying...

#2 - i cooked them in water with brown sugar and butter. when the water evaporated there was a glaze on the carrots. everyone said they tasted like sweet potatoes. we can't get sweet potatoes here so they were a great substitute!

mamadallama - i know. i didn't remember that brian wore blue last year. i remember what i wore, but didn't think anything of it until i looked at the two pictures together. and no, we aren't canadian...just have friends who are and invite us to help celebrate! i rarely wear my hair curly, but lately i've been quite lazy. my girls like it curly, but the boys say straight is better.

~m - they were yummy!

bejewell - awww...thanks!

becky - ok. next blog post...carrots. and peanut butter bars since it was requested by someone else!

pinki - thanks. i am glad so many people think i look younger. that totally works for me!

citizen of the world - i had to ask my husband what that meant. good one.
