We had an awesome (and redemptive, imagine that!) Thanksgiving weekend. I'm a little short on time
because I need to participate in Cyber Monday before work hours begin, so I'll try to dig up a few pictures I haven't already shared on Instagram and Facebook and let my words be few.
It's a little out of control how excited I get about dressing this girl up. If you silently judge people whose children are perpetually overdressed (that is, the opposite of a rugrat situation), then I'm probably keeping you pretty busy judging. I can't help it though. When I saw this deer sweatshirt dress thing at the consignment store, I needed it.
Also, let's all take a moment and silently reflect on the fact that she has finally outgrown those moccasins. As of yesterday, I just can't cram her feet into them anymore, try though I may.
A moment for our fallen comrades, the moccs.
Millie rekindled her passion for napping on my chest this weekend. I can't say I minded.
Shame on Matt for participating in this unauthorized photo op. Also, don't be tricked. Despite browsing many Black Friday ads, we did not participate in any shopping this weekend (well, except for a very mundane, non-holiday-esque trip to Target for normal necessities). My days off are precious and few nowadays, and I'd much rather spend every minute snuggling my girl and not standing in lines. Cyber Monday is what's up, anyway!
Never pass up an opportunity to be twins with your cousins!! Timmy is so sweet to his baby sister and cousin- when asked what he was thankful for this year, his first response was "Millie." Now if that doesn't make you tear up, I don't know what will.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to spend lots of time with our family, but especially with these two.
We dipped out on the Extended Family Togetherness on Saturday afternoon so that we could get our house decorated for Christmas! We spread out the decorating over Saturday and Sunday and it was much more leisurely, organized, and enjoyable than normal!
|A basket of Big Balls plus my reflection. You can't even imagine how many Big Balls jokes we make. Apparently we're 13.|
Everything is better with her.
And now I'm off to
Good luck re-acclimating to real life! Oh, and a zillion thanks for the awesome feedback about the high chairs last week! I had no idea so many people would be passionate about the space saver chairs, but that's what we decided to go with for now. Anyway- Happy Monday!
PS. Ooooh can't forget to share this: my SIL made the most amazing brussels sprouts in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD for Thanksgiving and I ate basically 23 pounds of them and cannot stop thinking about them. I have already begged Matt to make them for me for my birthday. And since they're on my mind, figured I better share so that you can make them and change your life, too. Enjoy!
