Busy Busy Busy

We've been busy lately. We spent a lot of time putting together Operation Christmas Child Boxes and dropped them off to start their journey to children in need. The boys really enjoyed doing this and we're going to make it an annual tradition.
Matthew has a lot of school activities going on, including Monday afternoon soccer. So me and Noah sneak off to Starbucks while we wait for him to be done.
You know that saying about the hardest to work with are children and animals? It's true. My photo stream is filled with Christmas card picture fails of these two bananas.
We started decorating for Christmas last week and have been progressing a little each day. Our tree will go up tomorrow.
We're on school break until next Tuesday. We ended the month at school with a little play where Matthew played Squanto's father. He was fantastic.
And since we're really into Snoopy this year, I thought this was a fitting way to end this post.
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Why do the long weekends always feel so short?

Sure, we crammed a lot into these three glorious days of freedom, but I feel like there's no way it should be over already. There's more to do!!

Tomorrow is back to work and school. But I think we accomplished a lot of what we wanted to do this long weekend. Like see Santa (yep, he's at the mall already! Great if you want to get a head start on your Christmas cards).
Lunch at the mall, post Santa.
A lazy Sunday morning at Starbucks enjoying our beverages of choice.
Contemplating life in between bites of bagels with cream cheese and sips of hot chocolate.
And even though it was pretty cold all weekend, we managed a little outdoor time.

Now it's off to bed, then back to the grind tomorrow. Friday feels so far away...
