Mommy/Me Date and a Thanksgiving Recap

Wednesday I took Gianna out for a mother daughter date. We went to go see this movie
I loved it. I thought the story was so cute and I can listen to India Mendel who does the voice of Elsa sing all day. We ran right out afterwards to buy the soundtrack and Gianna asks to listen to it so she can dance around the house.

It is a must see. I especially love how Disney is reinventing their definition of what true love means and is focusing on other areas of love, in this movie the love between siblings instead of the love between a "Prince and Princess". I also love the strong characters the women in the movies have become! I will be adding this to our dvd collection the minute it comes out

 She loved the popcorn. She ate her bag and mine!

And Gianna loved it. Although for someone who gets so irritated by her baby brother, when we dropped him off at the babysitter's she kept asking and looking for him and anytime a baby cried during the movie she would turn to me and go Mom. Ethan's awake. So cute!

Our Thanksgiving was nice and relaxing. Our guests didn't come until 430 so we spent the morning and afternoon just playing and hanging out at home. When the kids napped I started packing for our trip home to WI
I don't know how all of this is going to fit in my car along with my two dogs. We shall see how that goes!

Getting a decent picture of a toddler is impossible

 I am so thankful for my little blessings and for being a mommy. They make my heart full and my life meaningful in ways I never expected or through possible

Some thanksgiving prep

 Simple and easy with a plastic tablecloth and paper plates and napkins
 Roasting turkey. Yummy yummy
 My goofballs making a mess of Ethan's room
I made the usual, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, turkey, pumpkin pie and stuffing. My friends brought over an amazing sweet potato casserole. Everything was delicious and I have a fridge full of leftovers. It was a great night visiting with close friends and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Except maybe the husband being home. We have officially reached the one month mark until he will be home again! Woohoo

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and if you braved the sales today that you are finding lot's of good deals. The kids and I will be in our pajamas mowing down on leftovers!
