Another year, another Thanksgiving.
And another five pounds.
I contributed a pearl onion dish to the outstanding Thanksgiving buffet.
The kids table.
The adult table …
Not sure about Finn’s style choice here.
The Joffe fam.
This year’s edition was particularly memorable. The food was off the charts — regrettably I only snapped photos of my onions. And the Seahawks played the hated 49ers at 5:30, right after we ate. Final score: Seahawks 19, 49ers 3.
Big, BIG win.

This morning Finn and I ventured over to the park for our second-ever Laurelhurst Turkey Trot.
The bad news was that Reese decided not to join us.
The good news is that Finn set a new 5k PR — 32:05.
He just turned six two months ago.

Just back from a nine-day vacation — first Washington, DC, ostensibly for my law school reunion; then New York City. We took a LOT of photos. Pairing them down to the best has proven difficult, so instead I’ll just share our Shutterfly photo book.
It’s my best one ever — at least until the next one.

Another Sunday before Halloween, another pumpkin carving party at the Becker’s. (2013I2012.)
Was supposed to be a peacock costume, but this looks good, too …
