Week 18 & 19: The Nutcracker!

These past two weeks FLEW by.  Last week Sebastian performed for the first time in The Nutcracker.  He was a page and I thought he was so cute. I loved his hat with the feather in it, even if he said it was a pain in the butt. Each day we were dropping him off for rehearsals and by Sunday he was exhausted. He loved hanging out in the men's dressing room but was very happy to be done with it by the end of the weekend.

On the 12th Day of Christmas...

My kids decided to rewrite the 12 Days of Christmas to work for our own family. This is their creation.

My attempt at getting a picture for the Christmas card. Fail!!

Week 17: Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  

This year was not much different from past years. We traveled to visit family, stayed in a hotel, ate an exorbitant amount of food, and enjoyed the company of family. Since it was Oliver's first Thanksgiving, I wasn't sure how he would behave. He had opinions. He didn't like it. It was too loud.

Instilling a Thankful Heart

When I was a kid, Hook was one of my go-to movie choices to watch when I was up all night. (Jumanjiwas the other choice, but that has no merit to my thoughts today, besides letting you know I have awesome taste.) One of the scenes in it was of Captain Hook talking to Peter Banning’s kids, trying to get them to love him instead. As a child, it was just a scene. When I watched the movie as an adult with my own children, the scene hit me in a different way.
