Thanksgiving is just a few short days away.
I'm sure most of you that are hosting Thanksgiving this year already have your home decked out for Thanksgiving. Your house is probably super clean and you have just a few things left to mark off of your TO DO list.
I also know that some of you are waiting until the last minute to get your junk together.
I created a Thanksgiving Printable for those of you that need a last minute something to decorate with. You know you should be finalizing your menu and grocery list instead of trying to craft something from scratch.
Just have this printed and stick it in a frame.
I should be kicking myself for not starting this sooner. Cade and Henry say some of the funniest things, and I really want to remember them. I didn't write down all of Cade's funnies because I thought I would just remember, but that really isn't the case. I forget, and I don't want to forget. There have been a few that stick out in mind from the last few weeks, so It's time to just start.
Me- what do you want for lunch? Henry- not PB crackers. I want a SANDWICH...with no PB, and no lid. Just jelly. Me- do you want it toasted? Henry- yes
Me- so you want a piece of toast with jelly on it? Henry- yes
This one is actually from today. Cade and Henry were playing nicely together. No yelling or fighting, just fun imaginative play. Cade built them both pretty impressive looking guns out of legos and tinker toys. They were on some kind of special mission when I heard this.
Henry - It's time for lunch, I think we'll have chicken and a DEER LEG. I think I'll have salsa on the deer leg.
He has been really excited about his birthday for a few weeks.
I have been a little bit sad.
If you know Henry well, you know that he likes his sippy cup full of milk. He also frequently asks for me to hold him like a baby while he drinks his milk. He told us several months ago that when he turned 4 he wasn't going to drink from his sippy cup anymore. The night before his birthday I asked if I could hold him while he drank his milk. He of course let me, and I cried like a baby thinking about my baby not being a baby anymore.
He woke up super excited about his birthday. He also requested his milk in a big cup, and said he wasn't kidding. That boy!
He put on a birthday hat and had a cupcake for breakfast before church.
He was REALLY excited about church today. Turning 4 means moving up to the next class. He will now have a memory verse to memorize like big brother, and earn Bible Bucks. This is a big deal to this little guy. When we got out of the car he looked at me and said, "I can run with Cade now, because I'm 4!" I wasn't far behind him, and heard him announcing to all of the ushers and our Pastor on the way in that he was now 4!
All of our family came over for lunch and cupcakes. We had fun celebrating his big day with everyone.
He took charge opening gifts. Then it was time for cupcakes. I took this opportunity to snap some pics of the birthday boy with everyone.
Ok, so it wasn't much snow, but the boys are excited to see it. The last time is snowed in our town was Feb. 2010, the day after we brought Henry home from the hospital. Or maybe it was the day of. My brain was a little foggy.
They got up early and woke us up so that they could go play it in. They lasted about 10 minutes in the cold. I think it would have been more exciting if there had been a little bit more.
Henry - less than 2 weeks from turning 4 years old
