Knox's First Birthday, Thanksgiving Menu and Horse training!

Knox turned one on November 13th, but we had his birthday yesterday. It was really small, just family, but it was so much fun! We resorted to a pirate theme, mainly because I didn't make myself enough time to order the cowboy party stuff I wanted to use and Target had a really cute pirate theme. The kids had fun playing sword fights (eeek) wearing pirate hats and eye patches. I will post some pictures later. Maybe when he turns two we can do the cowboy theme and even have a pony? I would probably enjoy that more than the kiddos!

 Anyway, I can't believe my little guy is already one! He is still a little guy, I will post measurements and stats soon, which I will be doing for all the kids! I love to keep track and look back at how much they have grown!

 As for Thanksgiving... We are having it at our house this year! I am super excited, I love hosting dinner parties and this is the biggest one of the year! My aunt-in-law? is bringing the turkey, mashed potatoes, and the green bean casserole and I will be making my fantastic cranberry apple and sausage stuffing(which I will post a recipe for later),pumpkin pie, a white chocolate,cranberry cheesecake (which I will also be posting in the recipe section!) and a delicious almond, cranberry, blue cheese and goat cheese spinach salad. I can't wait to get started! I will be starting right away and I will definitely be taking pictures.

 As for a Thanksgiving outfit, this is the first year I do not have an outfit planned! I have not bough the kids their outfits either! Atrocious! Hehe.. Hopefully later I will have time to run to the mall and pick something up.

  Tonight we have our second day of horse training for our new horse Trinity. I have not posted about her yet but she is a beautiful registered Paint horse who is three years old. She was never under saddle when we bought her so it is a lot of work and it is expensive but she is learning so incredibly fast! Her trainer is going to be training her to barrel race and I will possibly be in the barrel race competition in January! I will be posting when I find out more, I can't wait!

 Happy Thanksgiving!
