Thanksgiving 2013

Our first Thanksgiving as a family of three was prettyyyyy great! Ella did so well with her first long car ride. She slept the entire three and a half hours down. We made great timing since we didn't have to stop (same goes for the way home). She napped well during the day, ate well, and slept well at night. She was LOVING all of the extra attention she was getting all day long from everyone. The shocking part is that Hubs and I were able to sit down for Thanksgiving dinner with everyone....uninterrupted! It was pretty unbelievable, I was not expecting that at all! As always, the food was incred. I even made the best of it trying to avoid dairy as much as possible. It wasn't easy with the antipasta though!

We took photos for our first family Christmas card outside by my Aunt and Uncle's pool (my flip flops will be cropped out). I was very proud of myself for coming up with the idea of changing Ella's headband and tights to make it more "Christmas-y". Her two holiday looks were both too cute!

On Friday we went out for lunch, and did a little shopping. I got some new comfy shoes for work. We came home on Saturday morning so we could prepare for the busy week ahead. It was such a nice quick little getaway. Hubs and I were very pleased with how well Ella did!!! Yay!!!

  3. That is so wonderful that you had a relaxing vacation! On our first Thanksgiving with baby he was 8 weeks old and slept through the entire meal, which was so nice! This year he was 14 months and definitely did not miss out on the festivities! :)
