Happy Thanksgiving!

I've been on vacation this week for the Thanksgiving holiday, though I've still been poeming my November away on the Poetic Asides blog.

Today, we all got out of the house and took a family portrait. Here's one of the poses:



Then, we went to one of those Christmas tree farms and cut down our family Christmas tree. This is the second year we've done that, and it's turning into one of those fun family traditions that I imagine we'll continue doing as long as we're able.

Anyway, you'll notice that Tammy and I have four boys between (and around) us. But today, we've both announced that there is another little Brewer on the way, though we don't know if we'll be 5-for-5 on the boys or finally get that little girl everyone's been wanting. If everything goes well, we should learn that in February. For now, we're happy that the baby seems to be developing good and has a nice healthy heartbeat.

2010 has been a great year so far. I'm definitely thankful for everything I have, including my amazing family pictured above and am grateful we get to spend the holidays together.

I hope you have a happy (and safe) Thanksgiving!

Robert, I'm delighted for you! Expected a "poetic" surprise, but I can't think of a more poetic announcement than a coming baby. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks! I'll be updating specs, including whether the baby is a boy or girl, as I learn them. :)
