Thanksgiving Recap

WOW I've been kind of horrible at putting my posts up on time, sorry!

We had a whirlwind Thanksgiving, mostly b/c Jason and I had to work on Wednesday.  We packed the girls up and drove them to Grandma and Grandpa's house Wednesday evening.  We had special plans for Thanksgiving Day...


We took the kids to the Fantasy Playground.  We've been here many times before, and we love to come back--not only b/c the playground is cool, but it's SO GREAT to see the progress both E and Viv have made as they've grown.  Elena did the ENTIRE playground herself, except for a few very large steps (they are giant).  Including this "burma bridge"--Jason was there to spot E, but he didn't touch her OR the ropes!

Then we came home to have a very special meal with E and Viv's soon-to-be new Aunt Melissa (my soon-to-be sister-in-law) and her family.  It was wonderful, and the kids looked so cute in their outfits (I bet I don't even have a picture!).  Even though our trip was short, it was a great family time.  We ended up driving home Thanksgiving night...

Because the girls were invited to be a part of our local Thanksgiving Parade!

it was cold

lots of glare, sorry

E and Viv (and I) rode on the Camp Holiday Trails float in the parade.  It was COLD, but the kids were very excited to be on the float and do their job--do their best waves!  We heard lots of voices yelling "HEY ELENA!!" in the crowd as we went by (and a few shout-outs for Vivian, too).  They had a great time, and then we went home to warm up and begin our Christmas decorating--the first part being watching The Nutcracker (Baryshnikov version).  WE LOVE IT!
