{Daphne was really interested in my parents’ puppy Izzy. They were pretty cute together!}

{And Daph also really loved that baby she could see in the oven. Kisses all around!}

{I picked up this turkey kit at TJ’s last week and Grammie was so nice to do it with Eloise. Cutest turkey of the year.}

{Eloise got a few early Christmas presents, including Candyland, which she wants to play non-stop. If you come over to visit anytime soon, it is pretty much a guarantee that she will ask you to play a game with her.}

{And that belly!}

{Daphne could not wait to play/destroy all of the dollhouse pieces and there were moments this week where Eloise would let her play. It was the sweetest.}

{And Sadie is always the protector of these girls. Wherever they were, she was too.}

{I got to hang out with my old girlfriends TWICE this week, including a mamas only dinner! We had amazing food and conversation and shut the restaurant down! Such a great time with these ladies.}

{I may or may not have forgotten to get a Thanksgiving picture of the girls (and definitely didn’t get a family one) so I re-created it for photos later in the week. This is my current favorite picture of these two girls.}

{Eloise gets her love of popcorn from Aaron, but it didn’t take much convincing for Paga to have some too!}

{I was SUPER nervous about the Apple Cup, but the Huskies did so well! Apparently I had nothing to worry about though because Wazzu didn’t show up to the game until the very end, and then it was too late! Go Dawgs!}

{When Izzy was calm and sleepy, Eloise was a pretty big fan!}

{We left at 6:30 this morning to hit the road back to Seattle. We didn’t get to see a real sunrise but it was still pretty to see dusk.}

{We stopped in Baker City, Oregon at Sumpter Junction restaurant which is one that my dad suggested. This place has a train that runs thru the entire restaurant and I grew up going here on our roadtrips from Boise to Seattle (to visit my grandmother). Daphne didn’t really care about the train too much but did love Aaron and being out of her car seat.}

{The train going by our table. And clearly I am just as excited as Eloise! Plus, matching Christmas jammies are going to be on repeat for the next month!}

We spent the week in Boise with my family and had so much fun! It was wonderful, as always, to see friends and family that we just don’t get to see as often as we’d like. The week was mostly relaxing and I tried not to schedule too much. As with everyone else, we counted our blessings and things we were thankful for, and this year we have SO MUCH to be thankful for!

We drove back home today and the trip went really well. The girls did amazing the entire trip and all of the timing of stops for gas, potty, food just all worked out! We have a pretty packed week coming up and I am hoping to get back into the groove of normal life sooner rather than later. Plus, finally decorating for Christmas is on the agenda, though our tree will probably have to wait until next weekend.

How was your Thanksgiving week and long weekend?

P.S. Did you see our new blog header? I have been meaning to update it for the past few months, since Daphne was born, but didn’t get around to it. One of the photos from our Christmas card shoot was perfect (and I will be sure to share the rest in a few weeks).

P.P.S. It is officially Christmastime at The Petite Flag Shop and I am loving the new additions of mini flags and cards (I can’t decide which is my favorite). There is a 30% off sale (and free shipping, always) going on thru Cyber Monday if you use code: BLKFRIDAY17!
