We had a relatively quiet Thanksgiving. We didn’t travel, we stayed home and made our yummy food. We did an easy turkey breast in the crock-pot. We still had all the sides and were quite stuffed by the end of the meal… and then the next day and the next day.


Ezra took one bite of cheesecake and gagged and then shuddered when it went down finally. Apparently he isn’t a fan of cheesecake.


He really just ate the cranberry sauce, nothing else of what was cooked

Dave’s parents came for a short visit on Friday, the kids both love having their grandparents visit. Sabrina loves that someone is here that is happy to pay her more attention.


She is happy to be sitting and reading with Grammy

On Friday we decided to officially ring in the Christmas season and we put up our tree and stockings. Ezra hasn’t seemed to care about it, except to take off and put on some ornaments. Sabrina was so happy to see the tree that she teared up (and then she committed to it and exaggerated her crying and sighing to make sure we all knew she was crying happy tears).




This is what Sabrina does when I ask her to pose and smile normal


He is such a cutie (sometimes)


Dave took the Wednesday before Thanksgiving off work and we ended up at the park in beautiful, sunny 70 degree weather. We also took the opportunity to do some organizing around the house. We got a new toy organization bin and mini bookshelf. It slows down the process of Ezra taking out the books and throwing them on the floor.

img_8921Overall it has been a good holiday. Sabrina is looking forward to going to school next week. She’ll start violin lessons next week (she doesn’t know that yet). She missed 4 days of school the previous week because she got a bad case of bronchiolitis, and then she just had 2 days of school Thanksgiving week. We are all looking forward to getting back to our routine.

In other family news, Dave is on his 3rd cast (this one is waterproof!) and his broken wrist is slowly healing. We will all be glad when the casts are done for good! Dave is looking forward to bike riding again. I’m looking forward to help with dishes and dirty diaper changes.
