Thanks for the excitement about the baby. We're pretty thrilled and now that I can regularly feel lots of little kicks and movements I must admit I've been a lot more relaxed as a Momma. :)

I've almost fully decorated for Christmas and I'll have to post some photos on that later, but right now it's time to focus on that big holiday next week! Eek! It's going to just be my little family of five and I'm thrilled with the idea of getting to do this special holiday just us ... not that extended family isn't great, but let's all be honest ... sometimes it's better to be on our own. LOL.

I looked around for some fun ideas and finally settled on a fun, kids table. I was going to go really fancy, but this seems smarter with the kids and they are actually acting interested in it all. We're doing a big butcher paper table cloth, tied napkins w/ crayons and Hunter helped me pick out some graphics from here. And we've made cute little name tags.We've been working on our gratitude tree and it's been really fun hearing the things the kids are grateful for each day. Today Hunter was grateful for his home (because he said he loves his family ... awwww), and Savannah has become obsessed with shopping & stores lately, so her's was malls (and she's only three!). Here's our tree from last year (premade digi-page from here):

Then I really love this turkey idea as a snack for the kids ... I'm trying to make it as easy as possible, so a lot of the meal won't be "hand made". The pies will be via Costco & probably the rolls too and my stuffing will be from a box, but we'll still keep busy that day. Does anybody have any other fun ideas?
