So I guess we'll start at the beginining. I took the week off. Yep, I took Monday through Wednesday off of work so Mr. and I could do a much needed get-a-way to this place:
We left Baby Fox with my parents so we could eat breakfast overlooking the Pacific without having toddler throwing everything within arms reach...the weather couldn't have been more perfect!
(that lady you see on the left, ordered the most ginormous order of waffles and then only ate 3 bites, I kid you not!)
Then we relaxed by the fire coffeetable (cause everyone has one of those right?)
We had the most fantastic time, relaxing, shopping and eating lots of good food. More to come on our trip later this week.
Wednesday, we headed back to my parents and my sister and I had some fun while setting up for Thanksgiving. My grandma is really sick so the family pulled together to do a Thanksgiving at my Grandma's Club House, when I say club house, I mean a building that hasn't been updated since 1950 in her mobile home park.
(what do you do when you have really good rolly chairs? Push each other and take pictures of course!)
Wednesday night we tried to get Baby Fox to watch a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving...He liked it for 2.5 seconds, then was off and running.
Thursday was spent with family, it was awesome to have all of my cousins, Aunts and Uncles and Grandma all in one place at the same time, has never happened. Made for a very big Thanksgiving dinner, but was so much fun to see everyone.
Friday we drove back home. Baby Fox requested that Mr. drive with Brown Bear
And of course Mr. is too honest to not actually put the bear on his lap, yep he drove about an hour with this bear in his lap.If that's not love, I'm not sure what is...
The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out and doing nothing. We ended the weekend with this:
and a little of this:
Love decorating for Christmas and having the decorations up, if only we could keep them up longer. Have you started decorating yet? And do you wait till after the new year to take it down or do you take it down right after Christmas? We're in the after new year camp.
