This week was Thanksgiving and Hanukkah and a few days off for Daddy, and now we are jumping into CRAZY overtime. From now until winter break we will be on the run – and if Mommy makes it until Friday this week she is going to need a very long nap.
Lazy Sunday morning
Hotdogs and a magic show at the temple Hanukkah party
Cole and Mommy went to a Hanukkah concert in the afternoon
That little tire pressure indicator? Strikes fear into Mommy’s heart. Luckily, Daddy added some air the tires and it went away.
Henry loves to snuggle up on the couch. I was in a GRUMPY mood on Tuesday morning.
We went for fro yo after we picked Cole up from school and that helped a lot!
Cousin Amy came to sleep over on Wednesday night, so we went out for lunch after we picked up Cole from school.
I ate all the calamari.
Then Mommy got some last minute shopping done while we dropped.
Mommy made Samoa oatmeal for breakfast. Oatmeal with caramel sauce and chocolate chips and toasted coconut. YUM – make this now!
Mommy was ridiculously excited for Thanksgivukkah, and it did not disappoint. Cole led a rousing game of dreidel in the living room while the turkey was cooking.
Night 2 Lights
Dude. How much does Cole look like Daddy?
Cole made Mommy her beautiful necklace.
We spent Friday at Grandma’s house. I had breakfast with Aunt Becca…
…and Cole played checkers with Uncle Jeff.
I went for TWO walks, and got to swing on the swings.
We ended up having Chinese food for dinner, where I ate half my weight in lo mein.
Mommy took us to the ZOO on Saturday! Cole was not as excited as I was.
I have been talking about going to see the ‘raffes for WEEKS. Since it is winter in New York, it is too chilly for them to be outside, and we visited them in their indoor building. FACT: Giraffes look a lot bigger when you are closer to them, and they are a little overwhelming. I still like them, you know, but I didn’t really want to stay *near* them for too long.
You know what’s super awesome? The bug carousel. I rode a ladybug.
Send some positive vibes our way for this week, you guys – it’s a race ’til Friday!
