How are you? Long time, no post! We had a very nice Thanksgiving weekend…despite both Josh and I coming down with a tummy bug. We pushed through the illness to make the most of the weekend which included…
Homemade apple crisp: pre-bake:
Butternut squash (simply roasted with olive oil and then mixed with sage crisped up in a little butter=heaven!):
For some reason, I took almost no pictures at our Thanksgiving meal. Here is one of Me & Kay before leaving for my parents house:
Kay sat in her big girl booster that my parents got her for Christmas for the first time:
My Mom is such an amazing hostess. The turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry and pumpkin pie were all awesome. My Aunt also brought green beans, green bean casserole, and pecan pie. Along with my butternut squash, crisp, and cookies, we had a feast!
The day after Thanksgiving, we went to a Santa brunch:
Kay was having a blast!
…until she had to meet Santa:
I think that may be the first & last time we bring Kaylin to see Santa (unless she requests to see him).
The rest of the weekend included lots of time with Josh & Kaylin. We went on walks and enjoyed tasty, easy meals at home. I also taught at the gym, enjoyed my favorite candy:
Watched football (touchdown Penn State!!):
Picked out our mini tree (we decided with Kay walking like crazy all over the place, a regular tree wouldn’t stand a chance):
and, of course, I got in some baking (vegan pumpkin chocolate chip muffins):
What did you do this weekend?
ahhhh what a fun filled weekend!!!!! you totallly get the hostessing skills from your mama! the whole weekend was so party filled - i love it! hahah i kind of wish you made the picture of Kay & santa your holiday card hahahaha. you know i love a big old bowl of chili & they both look amazing :)
Kay and frank are so cute!
oh that last picture is just too cute! I love the small tree- that's what we've been using in our little apartments and I find them nice and cozy :)
Erica you look great in these pics! So happy and radiant and little K is growing up so fast! And that crumble - and those muffins, yes, please! :)
Great pic of you and k! You too frank!! I love crying kiddos and Santa!!
Greg and I went to FL to visit with his family then I flew to Ohio to be with my family from Friday morning until today. It was a lot of travel and ate way to much food, but I can't complain...it was all delish. K is SO cute!!!
All of the food/ goodies look very delicious! I can't believe Kay looks so terrified of Santa. I guess that is most little one's around her age. I'm so excited to get our tree next weekend!!!!
The last pic is priceless. :) Have a wonderful week!!
we had thanksgiving on weds night at my parents' house in IN, then drove to MI to see my 92 y/o grandparents from thursday-saturday, then drove to Ohio to watch the OSU/Michigan game with my husband's family and drove back home in indiana today. it was crazy but fun :) my sister was terrified by santa too...she is 21 and is still wary of any dressed up folks :)
Sounds like a lovely Thanksgiving! Aww, poor Kay! Give her another year or two and I'll bet she'll be Santa's best friend. :) Glad you had a wonderful weekend!
So cute!! It is wonderful to have family time.
OMGOSH. that last picture. I sooooo want a bulldog. husband wants a bullmastiff. we be in standoff :-)
What a cutie pie!! She'll grow to love Santa if you give her another chance - that happened with Colin, too. :)
We went to a wedding on Saturday night and had an adult night out. It was fun!
How adorable.I love the pic of you and K and then the last pic! So cute and that squash looks amazing. Glad you had a wonderful thanksgiving my friend
She is getting so big! She's already in a booster seat; I feel like she was born yesterday! :D

I am doing a group class tonight at my gym - it's called A.T.A.C. - "This high entergy class uses a wide variety of equipment, including weights, tubes, BOSU and Cardio" I'll let you know how it is. I haven't taken a group class in over a year!

I love Kaylin's expressions. The santa picture and the "touchdown!" pics are priceless :)
Why is santa soooo scary? :-) Same thing happened here.
I remember my niece and nephew were both scare of Santa?!? It might be the beard or something.
