The weekend is coming to a close, and it was a good one. I enjoyed a date night, chai latte with a friend, and lots of family time.

For dessert on our date night we had peppermint chocolate chip milkshakes at chick-fil-a. They are SO good! We enjoyed getting to eat without juggling feeding someone else at the same time and talking without any interruptions- always nice!

I am a wait-until-the-day-after-Thanksgiving for Christmas person, but this year I couldn't wait and went ahead and put up Isabella's Christmas tree a little early.

She was in awe of it. I put it up on her dresser this year so we don't have to worry about her eating the bulbs and knocking it over.

It turned really cold Sunday. After church it was a great day for napping,

reading books,

and being silly.

We also had family pictures taken by my talented brother in an effort to get a picture for our Christmas card. Here are some of the outtakes we won't be using.

I think she must be saying: "It's freezing!! You guys are crazy! Get me outta here!"

It is really difficult to get a picture with a baby where the baby is looking and smiling...too bad I ruined this one!

Merry Thanksgiving!
Looking forward to a short work week for Michael, time with our families, delicious food, and being mindful of the many things we are thankful for!


  1. looks like a fun weekend! Ava has the same PJ's as Izzy on those pics! I am thinking about getting Ava small tree for her room, thats a fun idea!

  2. She needs to have a tree in her room! It's so fun! last year Isabella would just lay on the floor and stare at it. This year is a different story and I didn't want to even attempt having it on the floor! :)
