Prior to Thanksgiving

November flew by.  Is it really December 1st already?  You wouldn't be able to tell by the temperature, that's for sure.  Anyway, here's how we spent our time between Adeline's birthday and Thanksgiving.

Adeline enjoyed all her birthday presents.  She loves this purple dress-up outfit.

And Annabel has continued to grow and grow.  Adeline's 12 month hand-me-down shirts don't quite cover her big belly.

Adeline had her Christmas dance recital.

They dance to "Away in a Manger" and it brought tears to my eyes.  I'll probably cry at every dance recital.

We decorated our house for Christmas.  I like to have it all put up when we get back in town from Thanksgiving.

This felt tree isn't really serving its purpose.  They mostly just like to pull all the ornaments off and throw them on the floor.  Oh well, it's cute when it's all up.

Jon took the girls outside to play and I looked out to find this.  Something isn't right with this picture. :)

On the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, the girls and I headed to Texas.  One of my BFFs, Amanda, was being induced that day.  I was on pins and needles all day waiting for sweet Emma Kennedy's arrival.

She finally arrived via c-section that evening.  She weighed 7lbs 12oz and was 20.5 inches long.  What a beautiful little girl she is!

Then on Wednesday, I was on pins and needles yet again as another BFF was induced.  She had her handsome Preston James that afternoon.  He weighed 6lbs 14oz and was 19 inches long.

On Wednesday we also met Amber and Lyla at a bounce house place in Texarkana.  Our girls had a blast.

I hate that we live so far away from each other, but we try to make the best of visiting every time we both go in to our hometown.  

That night we stayed at my parents'.  Adeline begged her Nana & Happy to dance with her.  I sat on the couch laughing until I cried at these four!

Stay tuned for our Thanksgiving & post-Thanksgiving happenings.  I have a lot of catching up to do!
