Thanksgivingish

Welp, looks like my last post was Halloween. So here's Thanksgiving weekend. We're aiming for all major holidays here. Only the best, only the highlights - that's what we offer here at the Ts blog.

Eager Thanksgiving helpers...
Daphne bailed almost immediately. Something about rescuing a mermaid or setting up a bed for a fairy became more pressing. James, not all in one spot, buddy. Takes 'em awhile to get a handle on that.
Lovely Thanksgiving dinner (but methinks we need more kids at this kids' table)...
Hosted by Grammy and Grandpa...
And attended by Nana and Granddad...
So, I'm pretty much the luckiest lady around...
On to Advent...
This the first year we decided to restrain our anal, symmetry-loving adultness and leave the ornaments exactly where the kids put them.
Nothing like a little (patriotic?) tree decorating to get you in the spirit.
And of course the Portland Singing Christmas Tree...
Daphne got to bring a last minute friend, who's helping look for Grammy and Grandpa in the orchestra pit...
Here they are...
On the way out...
Not before one last photo-op...
Now we're ready...
To go to church and make Advent wreaths!

A fun start to the holidays! See you here at Christmas?
