Thankful


Our Thanksgiving was quiet this year, it was just the 4 of us celebrating. We missed spending it with our extended family. It was also RELAXING and COMFORTABLE because we spent it in our pajamas! :)

-Our Dinner!-
-The girls EATING....-
-And, eating some more......-
-Sophie was THRILLED to eat leftovers the next day. She sat here for an hour!-
-Greg and Emma took the dogs for a walk to the park.-
-They burned off some calories from the weekend while I stayed at home with a napping Sophie.-
-Yesterday morning I caught Emma "reading" to Sophie, how cute!!-

----- Saturday's Surprise -----

After breakfast this morning I announced to Emma and Sophie that I had a *surprise* in store for them. I guess that was kind of mean because the *surprise* was a visit to the zoo...which is nothing special to them. I just wanted to present our morning plans to them in a more enticing manner hoping to make it all the more fun. When we arrived Emma asked "Where is the 'prize Mom"? Ha-Ha. :)

It was a bit cool (although it reached 60 by the time that we left!!) & we were incredibly lucky that it was not crowded. Emma had an easier time holding herself together. We had a very nice time and even caught the elephant show!

My Baby is Three!!!

Yesterday was Sophie's 3rd Birthday. We celebrated her first two birthday's with her on the other side of the ocean...it felt good to finally have her home and be able to celebrate with her! So, what did we do? Surely it was a huge event? Uh, no. We had a quiet "party" at home...just the 4 of us. Both Emma and Sophie had a grand time. Sophie LOVED being the center of attention as you can see by the pictures below. :)
