Since I was absent from the blog during the winter holidays, I didn’t get a chance to post about how they went for us. It wasn’t anything out of the ordinary or exciting, to be honest. We were so tired of constant travelling and being away from home that the idea of not going anywhere for a change and spending some quiet time home seemed AMAZING!
Thanksgiving was much more fun than usual as we gathered together with some friends and their kids.
I love this picture below, and I am sure both the girls will pretty much hate me for posting it, since it was candid, but it is just so real: talking, yawning, lying down, mid-run, one the phone and mid-wave. Rarely do I get to capture life, because I tend to be busy living it when it happens.
Here Lexi was quietly sitting and thinking about something after waking up from a long nap. We even joked that something was wrong with her because she was so quiet which never happens.
Oh still in diapers, it seems like it was so long ago…. hanging out with our friends’ 2.5 year old.
Lexi finally coming to life, armed with a… screwdriver… hm…
This a typical European behavior- drinking olive oil from the bottle! Just kidding, but I would honestly totally expect that from him… or something equally weird/cool.
And that was our Thanksgiving. Lots of food, Grand Marnier cake, the same one as we had for Lexi’s First Bday, a little bit of goofing around and a late bedtime.
What did you guys do?
(I’m truly interested because holidays mean a lot more now that we have Lexi, but we don’t have a big family here or up north to celebrate it with traditional style, so we are always looking for ideas on how to make it special for just the three of us)
