As our family has grown it has gotten harder and harder to celebrate everyone's individual birthdays so we just celebrate once a month now. My dad and I share November so we went to dinner with the fam a few weeks ago and, like always when we're together, had a great time!
There's definitely nothing I love more than spending the night with just me and my wonderful Logan! We went to dinner at my all-time favorite restaurant--Tsunami. We both love sushi so it was heaven!
Thank you, thank you to everyone for the kind posts, messages and phone calls that made me feel so loved! Your love and support brightened my day as we thought of our little Eli who left us just over 6 months ago. Miss you more than ever, little man!

Yes, those are socks on his hands :)
Thanksgiving was a wonderful, relaxing day. We were with Logan's family this year and had a great time celebrating with both his mom's and dad's side. What's better than two feasts?! Logan played football in the morning while I slept cozily in bed and then it was off to our parties for the afternoon/evening. Logan loves looking through all the Black Friday ads but we're not too into all the shopping. I went for the first time last year and that was more than enough for me. I'd rather spend a bit more money and avoid all the crowds while hanging out with the fam! I was awful with my camera and took virtually no pictures but the three "Fs" sum up our day best: Family, Food & Football!
Like many other people, I always spend the day after Thanksgiving putting up Christmas so that's what happened today. I always get so discouraged thinking about pulling everything out of storage but I'm always so happy with how it turns out!
Last year we bought Eli a stocking that matched ours even though he wasn't due until January so unfortunately he never got to use it but I pulled it out today and was so grateful we have it. It makes me so happy seeing the three of our stocking hanging up together!
I have been looking forward to next week for so long and am so excited it's almost here! The Festival of Trees has always been a favorite tradition of ours but I know it will be extra special this time around. I've only seen tiny glimpses of all the work that's gone into the tree so I can't wait to see the finished product! I hope many of you can go and support the hospital and all the work that goes into the Festival!
