I would love to tell you all of the things we did in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Fun events attended, preparations made, or Thanksgiving themed projects. But we did nothing. Absolutely nothing. In fact, going for walks was the highlight of our days. I didn't even get cleaning done. I did get some random pictures of our latest "big" events. It was like the babies knew that I wanted to get things done, and they made that as difficult as possible! But...I am thankful for:
A l-o-n-g walk that helped all of us regain our sanity! It was a fussy day.
Lucas being home in the evening...even though we got nothing accomplished (I was a zombie by the time the twins were in bed).
A recent favorite activity: concerts from our dancing/singing toys
They get a little unsure when the snowman grows...
Ryan wanted it to sing, so I told him "press here," and pointed to the spot. He immediately pressed there (and then repeated the action as many times as I needed to get a good picture!).
Excited, I tested it with Allie who also pressed exactly where I told her. Will they always listen this well?
A great day of naps!
Our friends who were willing to come and monitor sit while I went out to get groceries in the evening. Too bad Ryan woke up just before they came over and it took me 2 hours to get him back to sleep (he loves our friend, and would be so busy flirting that he would never sleep!).
Getting a few things accomplished
Sippy cups are a new big thing.
Most of the time they chew...but sometimes they actually drink...
Going to the grocery store in the morning and scoring some AMAZING deals (I got our 12 lb. turkey for under $6 because it was on sale from the sale price!). I saved $33!! What a great way to start the day.
Great nap day for twins
No more chocolate (I seriously overloaded. Thank goodness Thanksgiving isn't really a chocolate holiday!)
That the babies are at a point where they can entertain themselves so I can actually get things accomplished during awake times.
Decreased fussiness (I am convinced that the problem days were because of the flu shot :( I watched the steady increase of fussiness. Monday was the peak, and then it slowly decreased. Wednesday I almost had my normal joyful babies back).
Ryan worked hard to place this book so it was standing up...
...and then Allie took it from him!
Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
