2012 Week 47

Thanksgiving!  Let's face it, that was what this week was all about.  Prep and planning, parties at school (poor Tyler was sick on Monday and had to miss their cute little play/singing performance - I need to get a video of him giving us his own little show in full costume), cleaning, etc.
As usual when it comes to big events, Sam did most of the cooking with a little help from the kids and I took care of all the behind the scenes stuff like shopping and getting the house ready, table set, etc.  We had invited Stacia, Nate and their kids over for dinner and had a great time.  I think we will all look forward to more celebrations together now that they live nearby.

In our house, the day after Thanksgiving is set aside for pulling out the Christmas decorations and putting up the tree.  That's when we know the holidays have truly begun and we can start listening to Christmas music :)  It's one of my favorite traditions.

I was amused by how excited the kids were to find the Santa hats in one of the boxes.  They wore them a lot that day and Tyler in particular keeps one on his bed and put it on quite often since then.  Ty was also excited for their "secret hideaway" - which translates to that little corner of space behind the couch in the corner that is only there when the tree is up and the love seat gets pushed aside.  The kids love to take blankets and books and their handheld video games back there and hang out.
