Thanksgiving Review 2014

Weather is the craziest thing. One week to the day before Thanksgiving school was canceled due to ice. It was freezing! And then, on Thanksgiving Day, the weather was up in the mid-sixties! It was so delightful! I flung the doors wide open and let fresh air fill the house. Then I took Elisabeth on a walk - because if there is one thing she deserved after the hard two weeks she went through, it was a walk in warm November air.

The girls hopped on a scooter and bike, Brigitta the Royal Pup rode shotgun on Elisabeth's stroller, and we set out on an adventure. You'll notice Elsa's choice of clothing...it was that warm.

Donald was up on the roof when we got home. When there is a random warm day at the end of November, you use it to put up Christmas lights...even if it is Thanksgiving.

There was no reason to go inside, so the girls dragged a folding table out of the garage, a bunch of Barbies, and had summer fun...in late autumn.

And Elisabeth, well, we rolled her feeding pump on out and she enjoyed lunch on the front lawn.

Later it was the usual - turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie...

And to end the night we watched Elf to kick off the holiday season.

p.s. Two days later it was snowing! Good thing Donald got those lights up!
