We enjoyed a leisurely Thanksgiving holiday, celebrating with friends. Hoping your weekend was just as blessed!
I hit the jack pot with Spencer. Not only is he a devoted husband and father, but he can cook with the best! I don’t love to cook. Cutting and arranging are my things.
But, he did the turkey, dirty sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and stuffing! Our friends brought additional side dishes and dessert, so we had plenty of food.
I totally failed to get a picture of the spread while chasing toddlers around the house, but I did manage to set the table.
Cooper was in heaven, begging from our guests.
His luck is best with mommy though.
Isn’t the day after Thanksgiving the best? Leftovers, football, and relaxation–hosting is hard work! Jada was smoked, taking an extra long nap, so Spencer and I had several hours of quiet to kick up our feet.
Over the weekend, daddy and Jada had a green smoothie and donut date. It’s all about balance, right?
The day before Thanksgiving, he also took her to campus for the athletic department’s pot luck while I had my 37 week check-up (all is well, baby is in position; however, baby boy appears quite comfy. Oy!).
Her personality is so much like Spencer’s which makes me super happy. They both love getting out and about and are energized around people. Extroverts, much?
With the weather getting colder, indoor activities have been a go to for us. Enter the gingerbread house.
Jada loved decorating! We made it a two day event (I built the house early, so it could set).
She wanted to eat all the “squishies” (gum drops), but otherwise was all about adding decor.
Then, she really got into the frosting. Why not?
It was a mess, but so worth it! I love creating memories.
I’m cherishing every moment that Spencer gets to spend with us before his schedule gets hectic in January.
How do you keep toddlers busy in the winter?
