oldest & youngest. Monday morning, getting ready for school.
she lost her first tooth!
and of course she wanted to show me her teeth.
made rosemary flat bread to go along with our soup.
my favorite time = bath time.
two shelves instead of a hutch. more baby/toddler/kid proof.
sucking her thumb while I load her up in the car seat. after nap we go get her sister(s) at school. it’s always hard for her to wake up.
clementines! and a really bad nail polish job.
found these two in bed excitedly talking about what they would be packing to take to Grandpa John’s on the Friday after Thanksgiving. never mind that we weren’t packing and it was before 7am on the day we weren’t leaving!
the start of a picture wall.
chocolate chip cookie dough (coconut milk) ice cream. at 9 am. because why not?
raising dough for rolls (they were excellent!) and cranberry sauce (a new recipe that wasn’t great).
for dinner the night before Thanksgiving – appetizers! homemade guacamole, tortilla chips. and a herb “cheese” spread (made out of almonds) with homemade crackers. the spread and crackers were from the balanced bites healthy holiday ebook.
bacon wrapped dates also from that above cookbook link.
we lived in Connecticut from 2003-2004 and I worked for a salon (just counter work, I didn’t do hair). the owners of the salon gave me a bottle of Dom for Christmas that year, vintage was 1995. we had kept it around for so many moves and I finally said enough with it, let’s just drink it. so everyone had some on Thanksgiving. it was good but no way good enough to pay what they charge for it!
I like the leftovers as much as the real day.
Della turned 6!
she got a Molly doll from us, the pictures were all blurry. she was pretty excited though.
she held her under her arm while she ate breakfast.
on the road to see Grandpa and Grandma.
and have cake!
on the way home.
after the chaos of Thanksgiving (and the day after) I needed some alone time. a drink & meal planning.
trying to put together some clothes for pictures of the girls. I went with something else but haven’t seen the proofs yet!
a couple of 60 degree days. we walked to mass on Saturday evening.
and put up the tree on Sunday.
