Thanksgiving + Christmas Decorations

Well, the house has been quiet this week, which is a little bit of a bummer! Katie, Kile and Creighton were here last week from Sunday through Wednesday and my parents arrived on Wednesday and left on Saturday. Got lots of pictures of my nephew, but took no pictures of Thanksgiving! All those photo opportunties I had and I must admit, the food and company distracted me from taking pictures. Oh well! So this year was a good Thanksgiving. We were happy to have a great meal, a quiet day and time with each other. Turned out to be Brian's first entire day off since the beginning of September when he started working the second job. Hope you all had a great one!

And, of course, here's one of many pictures of Creighton taken while visiting his Auntie Amanda and Uncle Brian. How seriously cute is my nephew?!

This week has been filled with Christmas decorations, knitting stocking stuffers, shopping for presents and planning the cookie baking. For the last several years between working long hours this time of the year and the fact that we were typically gone on the weekends, we didn't go to the trouble of decorating the house. So because I am home 24/7 right now, the tree is up, the lights are twinkling and we are enjoying watching Nala break ornaments... silly cat thinks a tree is for climbing! :)

Nala is a little sleepy after playing with ornaments all day!

Getting ready to bake some cookies tomorrow... persimmon cookies (after 3 weeks, they're finally ripe!) and chocolate pistachio biscotti. yum!

  1. Yay, decorating pictures how fun! And baking too . . .my tummy is growling.

    Cute nephew! (I know what you mean, it's so easy to take a thousand photos of the cute kids and forget all the rest!)
