In her tiny trench coat - she investigated a mystery...

...struggled to overcome physical barriers...



...and emerged victorious!

Victory: sweeter when shared!

Studying potential Katamari? Coincidence? I think not!

Still a bit grabby - only now, she talks to herself while examining things.

Delights in manipulating larger and larger objects!

While eating her pizza - she leaned close to the plate, whispering "Pizzaahhhhh".

She's almost Gollum-like when eating.

Fried turkey - this year, almost unremarkably easy!

Peppers came from the garden, beans and figs from the farmer's market!

I made the sweet potatoes, Lulu prepared the Harlem-style cranberry sauce...

Sheba's contribution: fresh apple pie, and fractal vegetable matter. Gorgeous!

Austin schooled the table on his studies, complete with trademark humor.
