We had a fabulous Thanksgiving filled with Family, Family, and more Family. With the exception of Denny + Family and Heather + Family...we miss them terribly. My Grandpa Dick out-did his self again with a fabulous turkey, not to leave out Judy Rudy who helped make the feast complete.
I won't even go into details the nightmare we endured while arriving at Toys R Us at midnight on black Friday. Let's just say this was Josh's first...and last black Friday experience.
These next few weeks are jam packed! Josh and I have stuck with our plan of packing a room a day since we got back from KC. Slowly but surely, it's coming along. With all this talk of a new house, I have gotten this sudden interest in decorating. I'm not sure what quite sparked it. Maybe the fact that when we bought this house, I was so young and fresh out of college, that I didn't really care much about (or have the income for) decorating. Then babies came and next thing I knew my house was taken over by high chairs, pack-n-plays, excersaucers, train tables, and more CRAP. So, the idea of a blank canvas is very inspiring! An accumulation of all these things have motivated me to start a couple DIY projects that I'm uber-excited about!! That's a whole nother blog....
I'm rambling...this is because I don't really have a lot of time as Josh is yelling at me to bring the packing tape upstairs. Wonder how long I've actually been missing?! Oh yes, the next few weeks....there are Christmas Concerts, Work Parties, 3 Birthday parties (Malakai and two of his besties), Mother's Club Dinners, and I'm sure many other things that I will probably forget!!
So, I just wanted to drop in and share a few pics of the kiddos. Leila is in her tutu stage where she refuses to take it off. In fact, she wore it to dinner the other night with sweatpants underneath, tucked in to her furry boots. I think she looked very....independent.
