A Two-For-One Day

If only every weekend was three days. Here's another quick post of our Thanksgiving Food Fest. We had a wonderful time with friends and kiddos. The kids didn't eat so well because all they wanted to do was run around and play, which actually allowed all the adults to sit down together and eat because the Fab Four decided to go romp around in Max's room.

This is one of seven of trying to get all the kids. This is the only one Max is not a blur.

I'm getting really excited for Christmas this year. Max is at a fun age so we can start our family traditions. Last year we didn't even put up our tree because we were traveling and between Max and cat, the tree didn't stand a chance. I've already got plans for holiday activities and crafts. It's getting cold here too which is getting me in the holiday spirit. It seems like winter starts a little later here - the leaves are changing now and the air is getting brisk... which gave me this idea after Maximo's nap yesterday: HOT CHOCOLATE! He loved it and called it his coffee.
