Life Lately: Thanksgiving Edition

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We have so much to be thankful for again this year. Here's a little peek at our life lately as we gear up for Turkey Day.

Last Thursday I watched our friends' eight-month-old baby girl, Amelia. She is considerably more mobile than Lucy was at that age! I had two little girls in the house from 7am-3:30. It definitely went better than I expected it too, but I was tuckered out by the end of the day!

As soon as Amelia arrived, Lucy made sure to put the Team Pink hat on her. #girlhouse

These two cuties played really well together!

Lucy was tuckered out after Amelia left as well. She needed to zone out with a snack and a Doc McStuffins episode . . . and her sunnies.

Thank you, Babies R Us, for leaving a tricycle out in the clearance section right as we walked in. Lucy saw it right away and hopped right on.

She also tried out every single toddler bed on display, but spent the most time in this Jeep one. Daddy was proud. 

It's Lucy's job to take things out to the recycling bin in our garage. Matty walked her out the other day, and they seemed to be gone for a long time. Then I heard a horn honk. They were having fun in Daddy's car, which seemed like a good idea at first. Except now every time Matty gets home from work, Lucy stands at the door to the garage and says, "Car, Car, Car" over and over again. He created a monster! So thankful for this handsome guy and all he does so that I can stay home and have these adventures with Lucy! 

Snuggled up with all the stuffies!

Here's my 5 month picture! The black sweatshirt probably wasn't the best choice. But alas, here I am after an entire day of decorating for Christmas. As usual lately, when I finally sat down to call it a night, baby girl woke up and started moving around non stop. 

Breakfast by the tree is a happy occasion.

Lucy's obsession with Sydney is still going strong. They usually have some snuggle time after lunch. I've given up trying to get her to stay away from the dog beds. 

Getting ready to go outside for play time takes a lot longer these days.

I got Lucy's hair into a full blown pony tail the other day and couldn't get enough of it!

What on earth are we supposed to do with this girl after dinner all winter long?? We roamed Ikea for a bit earlier this week. 

Giraffe pajamas with her purple flower boots. Little lady can put together an outfit like nobody's business! (What you can't see in this pic is that her pajamas are actually cut off at the bottom. They used to have feet, but Lucy is against all footie pajamas this year. These were too cute to sit in her closet so Matty cut off the feet. They now look completely ridiculous!)

We tried a new play place called Tiny Town this week and loved it. It's divided up into little rooms for dress up, beauty parlor, vet, grocery, and construction. 

Lucy loved the little home area with the baby dolls and kitchen. 

She also loved this painting on the wall in the vet area. She would laugh, point, and giggle. Who can blame her?!

More snuggle time. Sydney takes it like a champ. 

Thanks to the help of the Kindle, some snacks, and the mall play area, I got to get some Christmas shopping done yesterday. Lu dressed for the occasion. 

That's all for now. Our Thanksgiving plans include watching the parade in the morning and then going down to my parents' house for dinner after nap. We are hoping that Lucy's second Thanksgiving goes a little smoother than her first! If you don't remember the fussiness of Lu's first Thanksgiving, you can read all about it here

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
