Catching Up!

I am so behind on the blog. It seems impossible to catch up so I will just do a quick highlight of the last month.

We were thrilled for Carl to arrive back home after three weeks away!

We traveled to both families for Thanksgiving. It was so fun to see everyone but we decided it is a ton of work to visit two states during one break with two kids. We went to Carl's parents house first and enjoyed a boat ride, a fire, and a book signing. Wednesday, we left to see my parents. We enjoyed a trip to castle park, dinner at the fish camp and our first Thanksgiving at my Aunt Libby's house. Carl took Evie on a hike and I took Henry to pick out some fabric. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving with our families!

We picked out our tree and worked on Christmas cards. I love picking out our card and keep them all in a book. It is fun to take a trip down memory lane to years past. It is unbelievable to see how much our family has changed in just a few short years. 

We went to Breakfast with Santa, Henry's school program and The Nutcracker all in one day! That was a busy day but a fun day. It was Evie's third year going to The Nutcracker and it is one of my favorite memories with my sweet girl. We went with some friends this year which made it even more fun. Henry was hysterical in his Christmas program. He loved singing and dancing for the audience. Breakfast with Santa was a hit and we will definitely go back next year.  

We headed to Atlanta to see our nieces and to celebrate Lucy's 9th birthday. It was a fabulous weekend. We went to Henri's for lunch - lots of yummy choices and then went to Mary's basketball game. It was fun to see her in action. Mexican for dinner and lots of playtime for the kids. This morning, we went to Krispy Kreme and walked around Krog Street Market. I could spend the day there. Yummy food - BBQ, ice-cream, chocolate. I had a delicious lavender -lemon soda that was refreshing.

We have been super busy but having fun. Hoping things begin to slow down a bit so we can savor the season. Henry and Evie are at the perfect age to enjoy this magical time!
