there's a TREE in our house!

This was first thing this morning.  I'm imagining what Seb would be saying if he could... "You GUYS.  Check it out!" 
There's a lot of pointing going on.

Guess which ornament is his favorite?

Some random November loose ends

It was a long month.  I look back and think, did all that happen in just November?  And it did. 

We were in Cambridge and all the Reinerty cousins were together, which was the wonderful part.  Of course, trying to get them all in a picture at the same time was like loading frogs into a wheelbarrow. 

Cyrus and Sebastian did lots of cute things together.

They took a bath.

Sebastian was a bad influence, reminding Cyrus, for example, how fun it is to bang on the table at breakfast.

They gambolled in the great fields of Grandma's futon.

And then, back from Cambridge there was a visit from Grandpa BJ.

Speaking of grandpas, it is pretty funny how while the ball popper toy is by far the favorite toy downstairs, the ball banging maze thingy is now by far one of the favorite toys upstairs.  West coast grandpa's birthday gift downstairs, Toronto grandpa's upstairs.

Steve was sure that everyone would be very interested to peek into Seb's lunchbox.

thanksgiving kinda

I don't think this pic is from Thanksgiving, and I'm not exactly whose stroller Seb is in, nor whose hat he's wearing, or what toy he's playing with.  But it's a really nice shot of the cousins. 

Regarding Thanksgiving, I was holding out, in hopes that the PPTC's pics from the Turkey Trot might, just MIGHT have at least one picture of our crowd, but I couldn't find any of us.  And Seb and I would certainly have stood out with the jogging stroller, to say nothing of Sue and Steve with furry old Enzo.  It's possible that I missed Betsy in one of the pics, can't remember what she was wearing.  But to the best of my perusing ability, we remain undocumented in the Turkey Trot pics yet again this year. 

Therefore, you'll have to trust my event recap of the annual Extended Reinert Family Classic -- Betsy took this year's title and, in a major shakeup, Steve was the last of the family's official registrants over the line.  Alex and Cyrus were out spectating, and Cyrus joined in to pace Enzo for a few hundred yards -- much needed.  Enzo made the official concession to Sue -- Steve claims he was just a chaperone.  All starters finished, although Enzo was kinda hurting later.  Probably  his last Turkey Trot.  Don't feel too sorry for him:  he had enough energy to gobble up all the turkey leftovers in the few minutes that they were alone together in the car.  [EDIT:  ambiguous wording changed to make clear that Steve was not, in fact,  DFL (dead fucking last);  he was just the last of our family.  He'd have needed more than 20 minutes more on the course for that dubious honor.  Although now Steve has an ambitious goal for next year, and Enzo said he'd help train for it].

Back to things that matter, we forgot to bring the camera to Thanksgiving dinner, so thanks Lauren for sending these nice pics. 

Uncle Steve! 

Seb:  "I am really tired, but want to go play with my cousin and all his toys, lemme out of this high chair."
