merry and bright

i hope everyone celebrating had a wonderful day yesterday!
the boys and i were up and out and about early for thanksgiving breakfast with my family and to make a quick stop at the airport for matt. it's become a tradition for max and me to take matt to the airport on holiday mornings to get his coffee. 
(the airport coffee shop is the only one open on holidays)

max and i sit in the car by the check in curb waiting for matt and his cup of coffee. we people watch passing by travelers and make up silly stories of where they're going...who they're going to see. it's one of my favorite parts of thanksgiving and christmas with my little family!

the rest of the day yesterday was spent eating, and laughing, and being thankful, and eating some more.
it was a good and happy day. 

the weekend is going to hold all sorts of holiday goodness for us. 
saturday we're going to chop down our christmas tree...fingers crossed we pick one that fits in the truck!

have the loveliest weekend, friends!

days off

oh how i love a good lazy day off.
today has been laying in bed watching gone with the wind, morning bike rides with max to get donuts, football in the backyard, digging through christmas boxes and really starting to deck these halls, plenty of baking for tomorrow, lots of mimi scratches and lovin, watching charlie brown thanksgiving while charlie brown christmas music is playing in the office.
the house is bustling and cluttered and i wouldn't have it any other way.
i'll be back tomorrow for one last thankful thursday post...but for those of you off to celebrate with family i'll say a very very happy thanksgiving from my little family to yours!

i'm so very thankful for all of you...for this tiny space on the internet...for the wonderful sense of community we have and share together.
really and truly!


turkey lurkey

we're all sorts of excited for thanksgiving this week!
max has one last day of school tomorrow then it's going to be all pumpkin pie and cranberries and trying to talk our little guy into tasting a bit of turkey. 
(last year he woke up in tears at the thought)

hoping your weekend was a swell one.
we got in one last bike ride of the year saturday night. it was lovely roaming empty streets lit by christmas light trees and fancy store window displays.
 late november bike rides are my new favorite!

happy happy monday!
