This & That: Thanksgiving Eve

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! My girlfriend from out of town spent the night with us last night so we've already begun the holiday celebrating... along with Christmas decorating and Christmas movies.

We're hosting tomorrow (with lots of help!) and I'm so looking forward to Tatum's first thanksgiving... The table is set (sort of) and the serving dishes are out.

Yesterday my mom and I did our annual "Tuesday before Thanksgiving shopping trip" - Even though we do most of our shopping together, this is always our "marathon" day.  I've barely been to the mall lately so it was a little more list making and ideas gathering this year - plus we picked up some things for Tatum and his Christmas/Christmas Eve outfits.

Over the weekend Tatum made his first road trip to Penn State and we survived the car ride easily - he spoiled us.

We usually strictly decorate after Thanksgiving but this year we got a jump start with a few of the fake trees and such.  I think we'll always start early now!

We're starting to get into playtime each day and Tatum seems to love it - getting much more active by the day.

With the busy days, it's good that I have a good babysitter - she's very attentive... 

I foresee lots of baby (and dog) cuddles this weekend.  Looking forward to spending lots of time with this little guy and family this weekend celebrating Thanksgiving with extra to be Thankful for this year and then probably watching as many Christmas movies as we can count.  The sales have already begun and I can't wait to curl up by the fire and get some Christmas shopping started.

Happy Turkey Day! Enjoy! xx
