Thanksgiving was fun. Since we had so many people coming, we had it at a local church. Which has an indoor play area with a ball pit!
We had some great food and had a good time. We brought clam dip which most people told us that they never had it before. And asked if it was a Pacific Northwest thing. I dunno. I guess I never thought about it like that. We just always had clam dip at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was a must-have food!
We came home and I finished up painting Julie's room. I was bold and decided to go with pink. And let me tell you, that room is PINK!
When she first saw it on the walls, she said, "oh my gosh. It is cool!" Where in the world did she learn "Oh my gosh?" And to say it dramatically? I'm a little worried for her teen years...
Meanwhile, Jax asked me when I was going to paint his room. His room is such a nice gray color that fits perfectly with his Star Wars theme. So I asked him again what color he would like to paint it and he told me black. Nope. Not going to happen.
Justin and did some yard work today. These stupid vines are taking over our yard and need to be tamed. It took a while, but we finally had a spot free.
I think I'm going to go ahead and give up on the leaf battle. I work so hard to clean them up and more appear each day. Why does it take so long for the leaves to fall?!?
After all the hard yard work, I came inside and put up our Christmas trees.
Our family tree is on the left. Jax's tabletop tree is blue and Julie chose pink. Of course. I had fun decorating them. A girl can never have too much Deco Mesh!
I've sure enjoyed having this time off to get some stuff done around the house!
