Thank the Lord, they're back to being best buds!
Before Thanksgiving was even here, Addison was begging me to decorate for Christmas. She had been excited all month since she sees decorations at Costco (where we apparently go way too often) all the time. So one night when Brad had to work late, I finally said yes, we could watch A Charlie Brown Christmas and decorate a bit. Her eyes lit up and she went running up the stairs. I asked what she was doing and she said, "Mommy, I CAN'T wear this for Christmas! I have to get our Christmas clothes!" And she returned a few moments later with her and Lily's Christmas dresses. I figured why not, so I dressed them up and we put up stockings and a few other things before I crashed on the couch with them for Charlie Brown:)
We woke up the Wednesday before Thanksgiving (travel day for us) to a snow storm. Not ideal travel conditions, but it was beautiful! I covet our neighbors tree...
The kids table, above, and the grown-up table below. Look closely and you'll see my mouth is shoved full of food before anyone else has sat down. Come on, pregnant lady tries not to eat all day to save room for the feast, and you all want to take pictures while the food's hot? I feel no shame.
The first snow from Wednesday melted Thanksgiving day, and we had strangely warm weather. We planned on staying the weekend at my parents, but checked the weather Friday night and realized a huge storm was blowing in, so we last minute packed our bags and drove home on clear, dry roads late Friday. I cannot tell you how happy I was to be in my bed, safe and sound and warm Saturday morning, when the sound of ice hitting the house woke me up, followed by 12 hours of blowing snow and a temperature drop of 60 degrees in a matter of hours. Home Sweet Home. This was my view from bed that morning, with sweet Lily looking out at the snow.
Hope you had a good Thanksgiving:)
