Haul out the Holly

Our Christmas tree came out late this year - TWO days after Thanksgiving, unfortunately. Of course, we didn't actually have a tree until then. However late it was, we had fun putting it up!

This may have been the best day in Tyler's memory. He was SO excited about putting the star on the top of the tree. It looked great, but only after we messed around with it for twenty minutes. (How do normal people keep the star on the tree? We had to tie it up with yarn and nail the other end of the yarn into the ceiling.)

The rest of our decorations are coming, but Christmas is being overshadowed by the potty training hoopla over here. More to come on that when it actually starts to move forward.


Yes, we all actually sat down for Thanksgiving this year!

The Hinckley shrimp tradition was alive and well.
The fried turkey made an appearance.

As did a French Silk Pie,

And an Apple Pie.

Happy Thanksgiving!
