Thanksgiving Indeed!

This year we had 2 wonderful Thanksgivings!  Actually I think we had two Thanksgivings last year too!  Lucky us!  We spent Thursday afternoon at David’s professors house with his family and a couple of other graduate students from China.  It was lovely.  Friday we went south and spent the afternoon with my Uncle Joe and his family, little brother and his beautiful wife and my Grandma and Grandpa.  So fun!  I took some pictures, wish I would have got more and wish I would have gotten any from Thursday!

I am so grateful to be surrounded by such amazing people, family and friends and acquaintances.  My relationships with those around me make the happiest. (Especially when I get to snuggle a brand new baby! So beautiful!) I can’t wait to be able to see and do more with everyone.

In other news, we got our Christmas tree and it is pathetically too big for out little apartment.  I think David tried his best to tell me at the store that it was too big but I was adamant.  He was right.  We had to chop a foot or more off and it’s still massive.  I feel like a girl that bought 7 in heels and can’t walk right in them….but they’re oh so beautiful!  hehe

We are definitely excited for Christmas in this house.  William has no idea obviously but Ben definitely does!  And the best part is it came just in time because since we’ve been having a hard time with completing potty training (been having #2 accidents for about 5 months) we decided to pull out all the stops and threatening Santa’s absence at our house this year if he didn’t poop in the potty did the trick!! Yay! Call us horrible.  But if you’ve been through it maybe you’d understand how desperate you get.  It’s AMAZING the difference not having to clean out poop from underwear everyday it makes in my mood!!!

Yay Christmas!!!  Yay Santa Claus!
