Thanksgiving was wonderful! The meal was delish and the company was grand! I completely forgot to take pictures!
Oh well...Onto Christmas :)
We pulled out the decorations and turned up the Christmas carols. We hung the stockings.
Zackary set up the nativity.
Mia and I set up our little Christmas village on the dining room table.
We are getting a real tree for the first time this year so it will be a little while yet before we get to that, but I am really looking forward to it. Ty started putting up the lights on the house. We are looking forward to the rest of the holiday season!
It is one of those crossovers so it looks like a blend between an SUV and a minivan.
There are 2 rows of seating in the back and plenty of storage for Costco trips in the trunk.
I took it out for a test drive and a quick trip to Wal-Mart this afternoon. When I came out of the store I walked through the parking lot looking for my yellow car. I finally remembered I had driven the new blue car and felt very silly.
We feel very blessed and excited about our family sedan!
Zack was sick last week. He didn't sleep very much or very well. Last night was the best night of sleep he has had in a while, but he is still catching up. Today, after his chef boyardee, he made himself all cozy in our bed and fell asleep. Such a sweet little man :)
We kicked off our Halloween night with a fun dinner. Max helped me top our Frankenstein pizza. The sauce was a combination of alfredo and pesto. I told the kids that the garlic in the pesto sauce was to keep the vampires away!
After dinner we pulled out the costumes. It was a last minute decision to throw Zackary in the giraffe costume.
He is holding Lightning Mcqueen. Lightning traveled with Zack all evening and returned safely after trick-or treating!
Max was a little pirate. A very pleasant, happy, candy loving pirate.
The little people were all ready to go!
Mia told me that she wants to be a fairy princess ballerina every year. We will see what next year brings!
Then they were off. They returned later with a ridiculous amount of candy. They had a great time.
