This, That, and Thankful

I think Thanksgiving is my new favorite thing. We hung out at my mom's lake house, ate too much, lounged around in our pjs, did some online shopping, and just enjoyed the season.

Except that we didn't sleep much. Or, I didn't sleep much. Sadie was a little stinker and was either teething or just too congested to sleep. I was up with her basically every other hour throughout the night....and up with her brother a few times in there too. Bless them.

But really, love these two. Would love them slightly more if they slept.  Just sayin'.

We also celebrated this girl sitting up un-assisted for the first time! She thinks she's hot stuff now....and just wants to do ALL THE THINGS her big brother does. Lord, help me.

And we finally got our tree up! I say "finally" like it was late or something...but it feels late because it seems like EVERYONE on Instagram had there tree up two seconds after Thanksgiving. Hudson decorated most of the tree and just had the best his mis-matched pajamas. He was the sweetest thing ever. And we only broke one ornament. And I let Hudson put the ornaments wherever he wanted. It was so much more fun letting him enjoy it than trying to make it the perfect tree. 

I also scored some good deals that I can't wait to arrive at my doorstep. I actually didn't buy as much as I had planned, which is good and bad. Good because, yay for my budget, and bad because I still have a lot of Christmas shopping to do. Luckily I scored some great gifts here...which is quickly becoming my one stop shop for the perfect gift. 

P.S....don't forget I have TWO giveaways going on right now! One for $50 to spend at Hallmark, and one for a Hickory Farms Sausage and Cheese gift box. Get on it!

  1. Such sweet pictures of such a beautiful family :)!

  2. Sounds like the best Thanksgiving... minus the sleep situation! Hope they let you sleep more tonight :) Hudson looks SO excited to be helping with the tree! So cute!

  3. Omg I know! I felt like I was putting up my tree late by decorating it on Sunday! Yay for a relaxing holiday but boo to the no sleep. I remember those days well!

  4. Girl, I feel your pain! We need to put all of our babies in a room together so they can NOT sleep at the same time. I hope that changes soon! I love that you let Hudson decorate the tree....I can see how excited he was!!

  5. ugh. Babes who aren't sleeping is never fun-- but the tree! It's PERFECT!

  6. Oooh sleep! I can't imagine with 2 not sleeping! Hopefully that will change soon! Glad y'all had a good Thanksgiving!

  7. Spending Thanksgiving at a lake house sounds quite dreamy to me! We finally have our tree up too. If it were up to me I would have had it up before Thanksgiving. I blame it on riding the Polar Express on the 21st of November. It definitely put us in the Christmas mindset! Adorable pictures!! Hudson looks like he is having the best time!

  8. I love the pictures! I can't believe how big Sadie is! XOXO
