Christmas Tree Hunt! (2nd fav day of the year)

I know this is kind of odd, but I think the day we get a Christmas tree is my 2nd favorite day of the year (pumpkin patch is #1) because of the photo ops. I've said before I am not a great photographer and I know that's still the case but it's just so fun for me to capture these days - Sawyer loves getting a Christmas tree and bringing all his tools. He has a toy chainsaw, saw, and pocket knife and he carried them around the whole dang place. Adorable. Blair loved stumbling around and finding (eating) sticks. She had no clue what we were doing but she sure had fun. She passed out right when we got home and slept for 3 straight hours.

Because we have our TV mounted to the wall we have to find a tree that is tall (Mike's insistence - it is always about 10 ft tall) and thin so that it doesn't get in the way. Because of this we have to scout for noble fir's and when I was kid I hated this type of tree (I really don't know why) but now I like them. I'm sure my parents are rolling their eyes now at the thought of all the missed noble fir opportunities. : )

I always try to get a picture of them together, lately I need Sawyer to hold her hand to keep her from running away

Doesn't get cuter than this

or this.

I'm a sucker for a daddy/daughter moment

Thanksgiving Weekend

It was kind of an uneventful weekend for us but we got lots of family time in. We usually go to Mike's parents house for Thanksgiving (except for last year) but this year it just worked out a little better for everyone to come to us. My parents stayed in California this year and Mike's parents and his grandpa came over for the day. They left around 3:30 and it was really weird for us to have our house without additional family members on the evening of a holiday! It was our first year cooking a Turkey and Mike's mom and I each made a few sides and it all turned out really well! We were all stuffed! Even though Sawyer only ate a dinner roll I think he enjoyed the day, too. Blair ate a bit of everything - it makes me happy that at least one of my kids eats real food!

The day before Sawyer made some place cards and they turned out insanely cute:

 Excuse the mess in the background - the kids got some new jammies and they love playing with the hangers (I also got some more baskets on Black Friday to help with the mess back there!)
Blair is wearing the outfit Sawyer wore on his first Thanksgiving :)

They each got Santa jammies, Sawyer refused to take his off

Turkey coma + Football

Late lunch on Friday - Sawyer is in the holiday spirit!
 Saturday was our State football rivalry game and the kids were in their OSU gear - poor Beavers :(

Today we were going a bit stir crazy so even though it was only 36 degrees we decided to go to the park - how cute are these bundled up monkeys?

After the park we went to 5 guys for lunch, but not before getting a Panera PBJ for Sawyer (only this kid)

Blair tried her best to figure out how to play Hungry Hippos

I love this family of mine!
