Nov 22-Tree lighting at the Washingtonian Center! It was close to the boys’ bedtime and the lines were really long for balloons, meeting Santa (although I happened to be practically in his face as he got off the sleigh), and horse & carriage rides, so we didn’t hang around after the tree lights came on.
Thanksgiving with extended family. Every year, we join hands and go around the circle, saying what we’re thankful for.
Wait…Timmy’s reading the directions to see if you’re playing “Set” correctly! Teddy, you go next!
Teddy, the ladies man! Of course, he had to get his face scraped up the day before Thanksgiving by tripping over and falling face-first onto an Easter basket. (what? yeah, an easter basket)
Our annual gathering of friends who are in town. It’s a mini high school reunion every year, and now, with kids!
My first (and last?) year joining in the Black Friday shopping (not everyone is pictured because this was taken at 3 AM). I was determined to keep up with my pregnant friend (who was also my ride)…I barely hung on! Here are some tips: leave your coat in the car, wear lighter shoes and not wool socks, and rearrange purchases in a lighter knapsack instead of hanging on to oversized paper bags. *Definitely not a good idea to try to break in the shoes you just bought, unless you also just bought moleskin!*
