My sweet boy is five years old today!
We love you so much Alex!
Happiest birthday little one!
My baby girl turned 18 – impossible!
She wanted donuts for breakfast.
We went out for Dim Sum, duck, and wide noodle with beef – and chicken feet for lunch!
She actually liked the chicken feet. Jason and I – not so much!
We stopped off at Papa John’s headquarters cause it’s so pretty
we had to take this picture of the duck – because Sammi had just eaten duck - ha!
We went to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Then home again for cake and presents.
She had a great day!
We love you so much Sammi!!
May this be a fantastic year for you!!
We kept it low stress and low key this year. We slept as long as we were allowed – Alex is the boss when it comes to waking up around here.
We rotisseried a turkey breast instead of cooking a whole turkey. There wasn’t that many of us – just us plus Becca, Blake and Ellie. There was lots of help in the kitchen. Grateful for kids who want to help!
Our feast and us!
After our digestive period – I took a nap :) - we enjoyed way too many desserts. Then we set up our Christmas. I love this time – probably more than anything else to do with Christmas! I love watching what everyone remembers and loves. I love watching Joy’s excitement!! I love Sammi’s creativity. I just love watching my family being happy.
Friday morning Sammi and Jason went out and bought a Christmas tree. Now it’s all decorated. Our house is ready for Christmas.
