Happy Thanksgiving!

Yeah, so a little late.  I've been super busy lately, Disneyland photos still to come!****************
But, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We had Matthew's parents come in and my parents, Uncle Aaron was here... with his new girlfriend, who's a delight, and who happens to be from Vegas.  Good times!  We had so much food, everything was fabulous if I do say so myself! :)

This is the dessert table, everything from pies to brownies and lemon squares.  The girls were very fond of my hand dipped chocolate pretzels.  They stole as many as they could!

In fact, after the girls were done eating, we let them go play in the toy room... we were still at the table.  But then Kylie walked out of the toy room and shut the light.  Kacey didn't scream that she was left in the dark?  We began a search for Kacey, we had no clue where she was.
Little sneak, she'd took a chocolate covered pretzel and hid.  She didn't even respond when we were calling her... she was too busy munching away on her yumminess!  This is her caught, brown handed.  It was the cutest thing. 

One of my sweet baby :)


We have decorated for Christmas... I feel so behind this year!  We had Disneyland and then company with Thanksgiving, so we're late on decorating.  Only 2 trees are up, the train's up, my beautiful handmade stockings from my sweet sister in law Rose, and the Willow Tree Nativity is up... please tell me why that's the one the girls want to play with!!!!  As of Sunday night, not 12 hours of decorations being up, the girls had already broke 3 bulbs! :)  We're nearly half done with tree #3, at least all the stuff is sitting on the ground in the study just waiting.  I don't think we'll make it to 6 this year... but there's always next year!  I keep telling myself that I just need to survive this week with the PTA Pancake Breakfast and organizing all the tickets and money (why did I become treasurer again?), then next week it's the not Enrichment anymore, Christmas Enrichment.  Then maybe I can think about Christmas cards... never a dull moment!  And I wouldn't have it any other way!!!

And this is Uncle Aaron's new girlfriend, Valerie.  She's a doll, super sweet.  She's coming back for Christmas break to color my hair (she's in hair school) and gave me an awesome cut this weekend.  The girls adore her and say that "Uncle Aaron loves her and she's going to be their Aunt."  Get on this Aaron! :)
