It's the Holiday Season!

We have been so busy over the past week!

On Tuesday, we celebrated Dylan's 7th Birthday!

His morning started with birthday presents from Lily and Lexie: a Beyblade and Beyblade battle arena!

I sent my 6 year old off to school, and a 7 year old returned!

When Grant came home, we gave Dylan our gift!

He was thrilled!!! He was planning on asking Santa for drums, so he was very happy to get them from us!

Dylan chose The Deck House for his birthday dinner! He loves their shrimp basket and he loves to spin the birthday wheel!

When we returned home, Grant built Dylan's drums, and the house got very noisy!

Dylan chose Dunkin Donuts for his birthday treat!

He ended his day with some snuggles!

Dylan had school on Wednesday, but Lexie was off. I had a lazy morning with my sweet girls!

Later that afternoon, we took a birthday treat into Dylan's classroom. It was so nice to see all of his classmates and see the class in action. We hung out in the classroom until school ended, and I took Dylan home with us. He always rides the bus home, so it was an extra special treat!

On Thanksgiving, we had a great, relaxing morning! The kids loved watching the parade on TV!

We always have a busy Thanksgiving, and the kids love to play with their cousins and visit with relatives we don't see very often!

We ate Thanksgiving dinner at Grant's grandma's house.

From there, we went to my sister's house for dessert.

We ended our evening at Nannie's house.

My sweet girl was worn out, and fell asleep on the way home. I had time for a bit of snuggle time with my big kids before they headed off to bed.

Grant and I attempted to watch our first Christmas movie-Home Alone-but were too tired to finish!

On Friday, I visited my parents, and my mom and I did some shopping. I'm not a big fan of black friday shopping, but the stores aren't too bad by late afternoon! I scored some great deals on pajamas!

The little miss was a trooper. She is always so good!

On Saturday, we began to decorate for Christmas. That evening, we went to the town's Christmas parade/light up night! The past few years it has been freezing on the day of the parade, but this year it was warm!

The kids were so excited to see Santa. Well, the older two were! Lily was more interested in her hands!

We visited Grant's family this afternoon for some food and football! We typically do that every Sunday afternoon. The kids look forward to it, and are always so disappointed if we don't go to Nannie's house.

Just like that, Dylan's birthday and Thanksgiving are over! We're not too sad, though. Christmas is on it's way!!!

  3. Happy Birthday to Dylan, looks like he had a great day! A drum set...yiikes, you are the best momma ever! I loved Lexie's Thanksgiving dress, soo sweet! I am not sure how I feel about Santa's hair...I think he might be due for a makeover. Our township has a Christmas event this week, it will be the first time we have ever gone, can't wait!
