Zoo Lights

Last minute we decided to head out Zoo Lights tonight, and I must say it was so relaxing with just the 4 of us. This was the 1st time in 4 years of going that I was not pregnant or did not have a baby in the moby wrap lol. Anyways the boys LOVED all the lights and the popcorn, and Trey kept asking to go see Santa so I am hoping that means he will like him when we do go see him!
Waiting to get on the merry go round--can you tell he was excited?

Daddy had wagon duty:)

North Pole Breakfast...

I saw on a blog somewhere awhile back that someone had a breakfast for when their elf made their 1st appearance of the season, and I knew I had to do this with a few of my own twists! So this morning Charlie made his debut!! Not only did he make his 1st appearance, but he also had breakfast awaiting them on little Elf plates! There were snowman filled with milk to drink from topped with powdered donut heads (they for sure knew this was Charlie's doing because I have NEVER bought them donuts lol) Then there were even cake pops in the shape of Charlie's head perfectly tinted to match our tan elf:) Charlie had also wrote each of them note that sat waiting in their mailboxes since Charlie doesn't talk you know... He also brought a bigger plush version of himself for them to hold on to this season since everyone knows you can not touch your real elf or else he loses his magic:) All in all it was the perfect breakfast to start this holiday season--one in which I hope Charlie does every year{wink}
We read the book during breakfast...

Thanksgiving Day

The day started out like it normally does with Mark leaving in the middle of the night (midnight) to head out to go make turkeys--which means it was the little boys and I. So we watched the parade and made pumpkin pancakes, which were delightful! Then we waited til Daddy came home and got dressed for the day to go to our 1st dinner. First on the agenda was The Smith's--which had lots of friends and family and was SUPER fun! After spending the afternoon there we headed over to my Mom's. She went all out this year and had us eat outside at long tables--it was BEAUTIFUL with twinkle lights & candles everywhere!!
It was a wonderful day with lots of food & family! Then from there I convinced my dad to come stand in line with me at Toys R Us lol--we got there at 8-the doors opened at 9--we got in at 9:40, and I was home by 11:30! It was AWESOME--I saved so much money I will totally do it again next year!!!!


Boston's outfit was washed and dried before we even made it to our 2nd destination lol

My moms set up was Beautiful!!!!!
