Thanksgiving weekend

Hello!  We were enjoying the wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and taking a bit of a break from the blogging world.  Even though we stayed in town it was great just hanging out and relaxing.  We went out to eat, visited the art museum (it had been such a long time!), did some projects around the house and even hit some Black Fridays sales (but at a much saner time--9:30 a.m.). Both the Noodle and I  love long weekends when J is home and we get to all be together.  I have to admit, both of us were a little bummed when Monday morning rolled around and we stood at the door waving bye-bye to Daddy!  It just isn't the same without him!
A local restaurant has this lizard theme.  The Noodle was so excited to see "Twiggy" again!
 I was encouraging her to try some wing sauce (as well as the wings).  Do you think I succeeded?

Planning  her Black Friday shopping (or what Mama and Daddy will allow in order to read the paper in peace).
Poor J--he's been battling a head cold and bronchitis for more than 2 weeks and can't seem to get better.  He was a trooper though and didn't let it spoil his Thanksgiving!
 Enjoying some quiet time with Grandpa, after the excitement of the Thanksgiving day was over.
When we told the Noodle we were going to the art museum, she immediately said that we had to go to the Armour Court.  Once again, it didn't disappoint--gorgeous art in a gorgeous space.  Can you believe it?  We had the place almost to ourselves!!

The calendar says only a few more days until December, and we've got a busy month planned already!  3 birthdays to celebrate (and someone we knows turns 4!) plus all the fun and festivities that the Christmas season brings.  I'm planning on attempting doing the Advent chain again this year, just like last.  It was a big undertaking, but lots of fun!  Check back each day to see how we're celebrating and trying to make the most of this wonderful season.
