We had a quiet and restful Thanksgiving with my parents and Andy, Hilary and Emma. We enjoyed a delicious meal by my mom and I decided to up my game by making 3 pies this year. Not all were keepers, but they were pretty good for a first attempt - next to tackle is making my own pie crust! Black Friday was filled for us with decorations, putting up lights and our tree and taking naps! I ran out to Fred Meyer but otherwise we kept to ourselves and stayed out of any shopping area! The boys were in LOVE with all of the Christmas books, movies, toys, ornaments that came pouring out of boxes. Jack has been fascinated by everything as though he is truly seeing it all for the first time and our car rides are now peppered with him calling out "LIGHTS!" whenever we find a house that has their lights done.
Overall this has been a wonderful month, full of lots of laughter, precocious boys, and I'm so excited about the month to come!
