Thanksgiving is almost here!


We’re really looking forward to Thanksgiving tomorrow! We’re super excited about seeing our family tomorrow- Nathan’s really looking forward to seeing his grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, and some cousins who will all be getting together for a delicious feast. I plan on completely gorging myself! Yes, I have no shame!

It’s been pretty cold here, and we actually woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning! Nathan, of course, was giddy with excitement. Even though the snow didn’t cover the ground, he begged to go outside and play in it. He doesn’t have snow gloves yet, but I found a pair of mine that I wore a few years ago and let him wear them. They were still too big, but it was cute watching him play in them. Especially when he flapped the fingers, since the fingers were a bit too long for him.

In other news, as I was feeding John his rice cereal today, I noticed a TOOTH! Yep, he has a little tooth poking out from his bottom gum. He’s six months old, and I remember Nathan got his first tooth right before his six-month birthday as well! Actually, both of Nathan’s bottom front teeth came in at the same time. You know, it’s so cool for me to see how alike and yet so different both of my kids are. John reminds me of his big brother in so many ways. I love it!


Thanksgiving delights


I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you are enjoying your holiday weekend! We’re having a fabulous time; Paul has been off work for the holiday, the weather’s been getting more Christmas-like, and we’ve been enjoying our time home together as a family. Couldn’t ask for anything better!

And on Thanksgiving, our family got together at Paul’s grandma’s house and totally indulged ourselves on delicious food! Turkey, ham, sweet potato casserole, green beans (the best green beans EVER, which are made by Paul’s grandmother herself!), green salad, deviled eggs, mashed potatoes, rolls, salad, pudding pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, coconut pie… my mouth is already watering just thinking about it all again! Even Nathan, who is picky so we thypically have to pack a seperate lunch for him, ate some of the deliciousness. Of course, we brought leftovers home but (no surprise) we ate every last crumb already.

I love this time of year! I’m so excited about Christmas!


Oh! Pictures!


I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!! We most certainly did. I will write a post on it at a later date… In the meantime, here’s some pictures from Thanksgiving.

They are awesome. Yes, I know I am quite partial.

We had Thanksgiving at Paul’s grandmother’s house and totally gorged ourselves on some delicious food. Nathan, being the persnickety little feller that he is, refused to eat any of the food. Naturally. He wouldn’t be Nathan if he wasn’t so dang stubborn. But to make up for it, I was able to snap some cute pictures.





We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving. The entire Holiday season, from Halloween through the New Year, is so much fun! Even though it’s the busiest time of the year for us, we totally enjoy it all. I’m sad that the season is drawing to a close. The New Year is coming up… I can’t believe it. Ready or not, 2012 here we come!










Thanksgiving deliciousness


Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone… we are now getting back into the swing of things around here. Paul’s returned to work. Nathan is missing his daddy, but he is being remarkably well-behaved considering how often he’s been asking for Paul.

Only three more weeks til Paul’s Christmas vacation! I can’t wait!

So Thanksgiving was awesome this year. We ate at Paul’s grandparents’ house, and let me tell you, it was a delicious feast. Turkey, ham, spinach salad, green salad, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, dressing, deviled eggs, a corn dish, gravy… I can’t even remember everything we had! And the pies, we can’t forget about those delicious pies!

Nathan, however, would not partake in the feast. By the time we ate, it was way past his nap time, and I’ve noticed the more tired he is, the more strong-headed he becomes. He didn’t even want to taste any of the food. Oh well. There’s always next year.

On the bright side, I was able to get him to try a pretzel the other day. It’s the little things, folks. It’s the little things.

Also, I was able to get a few cute pictures, so I’ll have those up within the next few days or so.

Well, it’s been a long day… I didn’t have much time to write, but I just wanted to update everyone on our Thanksgiving. I hope you all enjoyed yours as well!
