Because we went to PA for "official" Thanksgiving festivities, I thought that it would be fun to have our own little feast at home. A lovely, original smorgasbord of meatballs, mashed potatoes, corn, cranberry sauce and the "traditional" Thanksgiving Monkey Bread. ;)
We had a candlelit dinner at the big dining room table. It was one of the sweetest nights--lots of precious memories tucked away from that one. M and T were SO excited! M set the table all by herself and was full of amazing Thanksgiving prayers. And my picky eaters chowed down! Gotta love that!
So, our little Thanksgiving feast was on Monday ;), and then on Tuesday we celebrated J's birthday (which was actually on Friday--but, you know, you do what you have to do). What better way to celebrate the big 3-3 than with an ice-cream sandwich cake?
On Wed we headed to PA and had a fun time hanging out with both of our families.
The high creek at the cabin meant that the only way across was in the monstrous deuce. M and T couldn't get enough of it.
And then we came back on Sunday with our Christmas tree from J's Grandparents' Tree Farm.
(Yes, J is just that fast--making it quite hard to capture a picture of his face. ;)
Fun full week. But, very glad to be home. :)
(Adoption Update: No call yet, but today there were 3 referrals of little toddlers ages 3-4. How cool is that? Yay, for new forever families!)
