Hello lovely readers and Happy Thanksgiving to those folks in the USA!
Guys, I’ve become such a holiday junkie in my (relatively) “old” age. I love it more and more each year! I can’t get enough of holiday music and I usually start baking cookies as soon as Halloween is over. I love family get togethers, holiday parties, and browsing the holiday section in every store I go into to. The cold weather seems appropriate now and joy is in the air.
Speaking of joy, I’m so happy it’s Thanksgiving week! This year I’m hosting a small group of my family and I’m really pumped about good food, family time, football, shopping, games, relaxing, and lots of laughter.
Of course it’s also been a bit busy this week, what with grocery shopping and the eventual cooking/baking that will not be made any easier with a toddler around. The Wee One is sweeter than ever but he’s also becoming a handful. Umm, throwing banana into my carpet?? Not cool buddy. His newest thing is signing “more” for anything and everything he wants. My cell phone? More. I don’t like this food! More. I’m sick of this toy. More. I’m just standing in the living room and I don’t know what I want to say. MORE.
His face looks blurry and weird in this photo but hey, it’s hard to catch him signing mid-action!
I’m also pumped about Black Friday shopping with The Mother, seeing some of my extended family, and decorating for Christmas! We also really need to get started on baby boy #2’s nursery, yeesh! Needless to say, I won’t be posting again until next week. I hope you all get to spend time with your families and I hope you get to stuff your faces with amazing and delicious food while you remember what you’re thankful. I know my list is overflowing this year, and I am SO grateful.
PS Here’s a Wee One pic of his second ever haircut. We bribed him with raisins. Adorbs.
