We had the perfect Thanksgiving setting this year as the newly fallen snow only added to the ambiance of the special day. Dinner was yummy and dessert was even better! Grandma made her delicious pumpkin bars and uncle Geoff brought over a Death By Chocolate truffle he made especially for the ladies. It was really hard to save room for dessert but we all did because no one wanted to miss out on the treats!
The kids enjoyed some night time sled riding and during the day, my youngest girls built a mini snowman on the back deck. They were very impressed with their creation and made me take a picture of it so we could keep it as a memory.
While the kids played, the adults sat around chatting, nibbling on appetizers and sipping on Grandpa’s homemade wine. Us girls also browsed through the many store flyers to see what Black Friday specials we could find! Some of us had plans for a little midnight
shopping while the rest of us decided sleeping
in sounded way more appealing. Black Friday shopping can get really crazy! Fun! Fun!
My little family was happy to head home so we could decorate the house for Christmas. While the girls helped me set up the small stuff, Daddy assembled our brand new 7 and a half foot tree! It looks beautiful in our front living room. I will post pictures later. In the meantime, the Christmas music has begun being played throughout the house and Daddy has made sure to keep a supply of egg nog in the refrigerator. We’re almost done but it’s clearly evident that …
the Christmas season has officially begun!
