i am trying to get into the holiday spirit but it has really been hard this year for several reasons. the big reason is the baby and i have been sick for the last week and a half. every night i go to bed thinking surely i will feel better by morning, but this cold has been lingering. i feel so bad for little harper because i know how awful he must feel.
we took a trip to the winter garden aglow saturday night to visit santa and his reindeer. the big kids were with their dad for a family christmas party so they did not get to come along with us. this picture came out a little blurry, but it is still cute! we forgot to ask which reindeer this was but esme' thinks it was dasher, the lead reindeer. can you see harper in his carrier leaning out to peek at the reindeer?a cute pic of esme', harper and i.
esme' insisted we pose for a pic in this little stone gazebo. i am so glad she did!

this evening we are going to bundle up and go to the winter garden aglow to see santa and his reindeer. we do this as a family every year and the lights are absolutely breath taking. i have already been there once this year with my girl friends for mom's night out and i can't wait to go with my family.

i finally finished that everlasting soaker that i cast on who knows how long ago. we love how this fits our chunky little guy. it is now our new favorite diaper cover~ he even wears it under his mama-made fleece pants!
tony brought out the boxes of christmas decorations and hung all the outdoor christmas lights today... he is so proud that he got this done before december! so our house looks very festive even though he forgot to put the terra cotta pumpkins away so they are still sitting on the front porch. i bought fabric and rick-rack today so i can sew christmas stockings for the whole family. i hope to have them done this weekend. i am also planning to sew a new tree skirt and an advent calender. i will be sure to post many pictures of my crafty endevours in the next few weeks... so long as the batteries continue to cooperate...

yesterday was thanksgiving and harper had his very first bite to eat! he has been very interested in watching us eat lately and seems a little put out that we don't offer him anything at meal times. i baked and pureed a butternut squash from my friend monique's garden and served it up to him after we ate turkey. it was a very fun, messy, and exciting adventure (exciting for esme' who thought this was just the coolest thing EVER!) he didn't actually swallow much but rather pushed everything right back out with his tongue. i am sure he will be clearing his plate in no time!
