Holiday Snapshots.

This weekend was wonderfully relaxing and my family & I had a super great Thanksgiving. The meal was fantastic and the company was even better. Here are some photos from the last few days!


driving with grandpa to the park to... launch another rocket!



setting up the launch.




this boy hates loud noises. heh.




part of the FEAST.




Ezra ended up eating macaroni & cheese for dinner. OF COURSE.




Hanging out with two of my favorite ladies on Turkey Day- Jacquie & Piper! I love these girls.




This was a brilliant thanksgiving leftovers recipie we tried. Wontons filled with shredded turkey & cranberry sauce- dipped in gravy. SO SO SO SO YUMMY.




The tree!




the snowman!




my living room has never felt so cozy.




WOO HOO Holidays!!


We've also:
-decorated the outside of the house.
-watched 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas', 'The Polar Express', and 'Elf'.
-drank excessive amounts of eggnog.
-baked & eaten peppermint brownies.
-and busted out the Christmas music.

We're blitzed out on Christmas over here, peeps. And I couldn't be happier if I tried. I love this time of year!!

This time of the year is my fave, too, because the lights make everything cozy...and I get to bake so the house smells delicious! and it's just a nice time of the year overall. :)

Glad you had fun. Happy Thanksgiving. I thought I was busting out the Christmas music too soon. Glad someone else is doing it too. Can't wait to watch all the Christmas movies from the 40s and those claymation cartoons. Those always make me feel Christmas cheery.

We have our tree but haven't decorated it, and I'm still stuck on pumpkin desserts instead of moving on to eggnog and peppermint... You have inspired me! Must...get...more...Christmas-y.

And, love the lights on the piano. Nothing says cozy like Christmas lights.
