Happy Thanksgiving!

30 Nov

We had a great Thanksgiving but somehow forget to take some pictures! We started the day off with the neighborhood Turkey Bowl. Luckily, Kerry did not get hurt this year.


Then it was home for family, food, and fun 🙂 All the food turned out really well and it was nice to catch up with family. I think the highlight for Miss H was the snowflake book that Mom brought her. At first, it took two adults to figure out how to fold the paper but once we got that down, we were making good snowflakes. Miss H is really good with the scissors so she was a pro at cutting out the shapes. We are now decorating the windows of the house with her creations.


Our Thanksgiving traditions includes heading to the mall on Black Friday. We arrived just before 9am and were surprised at the lack of people. Kerry and Miss H joined us and we were even more surprised to see  no line for Santa. Well, the camera equipment was not working but they let us use our phone.

Miss H liked the snow in the ice castle.


But, was not such a fan of Santa at first.


He finally got her interested in talking to him and we got a cute picture.


Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!


Two visits with Santa

6 Dec

Since this is Hadley’s first Christmas, we had to do the obligatory photo with Santa this year and it ended up being two trips to see the guy at the mall. Friday night, Kerry and I took Hadley to see Santa and we were convinced she would not want any part of it. She has started to get ‘stranger danger’ lately and we were sure the strange man in the red suit would not be someone she would be warm and friendly around. However, she fooled us both and actually giggled at Santa.

Then, on Saturday- I met Mom in Annapolis and we visited the Santa there. There was a line for the Annapolis Santa but even after waiting Hadley was all smiles about this guy too. She even displayed her recent, “I am number one” pose for this picture.

In othere weekend news, we did get some snow. It is all gone now but it was pretty while it lasted. Since it was the first snow, Kerry built the first blaze in the fireplace. Hadley was fascianted with the whole thing and made several attempts at getting over the blockade.
