Welcome Home Chief

 After months and months of working out of state, my dad was finally able to come home for a quick visit over the holiday. We miss him like crazy & were so excited to see him! Can't wait until he is home for good! I am incredibly grateful for my wonderful, crazy, talented, giving, loving, silly family. They are such wonderful examples to me and my kids. They say it takes a village to raise a kid, right? I have the most amazing village.

Christmas jammies from Jingle the Elf. G thought they were the coolest pajamas ever and couldn't be happier. Not. Apparently this is the last year I am cool. Oh well, he hasn't stopped holding my hand in public yet.

Thanksgiving 2013

 At the top of my thankful list, is these four lovies right here. They have my whole heart.

Love our tradition at Grandma's house every year for Thanksgiving. One of the most memorable days of the year. I also look forward to our girls shopping day every year to ring in the holidays with laughter and excitement. I am a lucky girl!

Activity Days: Thanksgiving

For Activity Days this month, we had a feast and practiced our table etiquette before Thanksgiving rolled around. I printed the table setting on thick kraft colored card stock for each girl. (If I had time I probably would have laminated them to double as a place mat) On the backside of the place setting I printed table manners. The girls had fun & giggled while reading the sheet. We then acted out a few scenarios and learned to fold napkins a few different ways before eating. Downloads for both the place setting & table manners are available below.

fall break 2k13

Loved our quick getaway this week for Fall Break. The weather up north was absolutely heavenly & the family time much needed. Love spending time with each other. Especially up north!!! (The kids LOVED finding snow in the mountains!)
