Turkey Headbands and Christmas Lights

Hey guys, sorry I have been MIA for a few weeks!!!! I have been busy busy getting ready for a little event to sell my hair bows (more on that tomorrow)

We were also busy enjoying the holidays with family. 

This year was so much different having Ellie.  It is crazy how much your life changes when your schedule sort of depends on a little chubby human being you are responsible for!!! Typically Ellie is really easy going and loves doing things and watching people…and Thanksgiving was no different.  She loved watching everyone eat, and taking in all of the action.  She is ON. THE. MOVE. so the last couple of weeks have been all about exploring for her…and running around grabbing her for us.

She didn’t get to try turkey yet; long story…I don’t eat meat, Joe does…she has no teeth to chew yet so we have time to figure out the whole “will she eat meat or won’t she” thing…stay tuned…

We ended up going to my parents for brunch on Thanksgiving, then headed to Joe’s moms house for dinner.  We spent the night there and had a nice relaxing night, eating great food…watching silly movies…all the good stuff you should do for Thanksgiving.

Miss Ellie had, what I thought, was the cutest outfit for the holiday…and was comfortable, because this mama is all about comfort when it comes to holiday clothes! 

(tooting my own horn warning: I made the headband, which I thought turned out so cute!!)

And now to the pictures…cause you know I took some.

I guess I didn’t really take very many of Thanksgiving…I must have been too busy eating.

In other news, we decorated for Christmas this year a week before Thanksgiving.  We are usually the weekend after Thanksgiving kinda people, but the weather was nice and we just felt in the Christmas spirit so we went for it.

Awww, the fun things you find whilst unpacking last years Christmas stuff.

(we are still working on removing the lovely wallpaper you see in the background, uggg!)

And since Ellie is on the move she has recently discovered our giant window in the living room. She can pull herself up and look out of it…and she does…all the time.  I spotted her doing it right next to the tree and thought it was just so cute that I had to take some pictures..duh.

See her…to the left of the tree. She looks so little compared to everything!

and she recently figured out how to wave…so I caught her waving to me, so flipping cute!!!

Well at any rate, I hope you all had a great holiday too.

Happy Monday!!
