It has been record breaking beautiful weather!

27 Nov

It has been beautiful for the last few days and we have taken full advantage of the nice weather! Thanksgiving Day we had the windows open, Friday we shopped in Old Town, Saturday we enjoyed more sunshine and today we headed into DC to walk around the monuments.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we invited our neighbors who are originally from Poland over to share the feast with me, Kerry, Miss H and Mom. Miss H loves to play with their son and it was great to have them at our table. Plus, they bought a delicious apple cake that went along well with our meal.

Mom has started a Thanksgiving tradition of making Miss H a headress to wear for the occassion and this years was very cool. Miss H had to get up close and personal to show it to me as I tried to take a picture.

We tried to convince her that they were feathers but she was convinced they were leaves so leaves it is.

Also, she was a big help with making green bean casserole. Mom now is an expert at cooking with a toddler helper 🙂

Thanksgiving was great and we had enough leftovers for several days.

Mom and I decided to avoid the mall crowds and enjoy the nice weather by shopping in Old Town. There are some great shops along King Street and everyone was so nice! Plus, there were no huge crowds and we got lots of attention in every store we went in. We both knocked some items off our holiday lists and enjoyed the great weather and friendly faces.  Kerry, on the other hand, decided to take Miss H to Target, REI and hh Gregg. He claims that they were not too crowded but Miss H was not the easiest of shopping partners. I  think there was way too much for her to see, touch and be overwhelmed by! But, they wrapped up their shopping with lunch at McDonald’s.

Saturday started off with gymnastics and then Kerry and I went to a baptism and late lunch to celebrate the baptism while Miss H enjoyed time with her friends at the park and eating pizza.

Since this beautiful weather is certain to return to normal soon (notice Kerry in shorts), we headed to DC this morning to wander around the memorials and enjoy the sunshine. We started off by the Vietnam Memorial and then headed over to the World War II Memorial.

Since neither of us had visited the new Martin Luther King Memorial, we added that to our memorial visits this morning. Along the way, we stopped at the World War I Memorial.

Then it was across the street to the MLK Memorial.

While we were at Lincoln Memorial, we saw horses from a distance so we had to go check them out. I think they were the highlight. One horse really liked Miss H! I guess she smelled good because he lifted her shirt up and sniffed her belly. Miss H was a little stunned by this whole event but eventually laughed it off.

After all this history, we were all exhausted and needed lunch.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

On the agenda this week- Christmas tree and lots of decorations. Stay tuned.
