Adella got to decorate this lovely pink tree at pops & tutu’s house… notice the ornament placement, so creative!
I think this year was the quietest in the Adams family history, and it was kind of weird at first. The past 2 years we spent Thanksgiving at the firehouse because Tim had to work, which is fun, but this year since everyone has moved far from SC it was just us and my parents. So we took advantage of the small crowd and veered from the usual menu to try out some new recipes. The food was made up of ingredients that were all purchased at Trader Joe’s and it was sooo good! We plan to cook the same meal for Christmas, as it was by far the best spread we’ve ever had. We still did the usual and started cooking early while sipping on champagne, and Adella watched “fwosty” over and over again…
Not happy with the menu, typical
nothing like a cereal bar to save the day! From Trader Joe’s...
I am a little behind on the blogging lately, as all my down time (all 2 minutes of it a day) is going towards getting our Christmas cards stuffed, addressed, stamped and sent. But here is Nolan’s 3 month photo! He went to the doctor the day after this photo was taken and weighed in at 16 lbs!! He is awake most of the day now, just takes a few 15-20 minute cat naps…. ay…. and insists on being held or played with all day. I will have some serious guns by the time he turns 1.
In between feedings, diaper changes, cleaning, meltdowns, play time, etc….. Tim and I have been trying to work on a few things around the house. It’s a long, expensive process but we try to do a little bit here and there. We are nearly finished with the dining room hutch, Tim painted it and added hardware and I threw on some accessories. The paint color isn’t quite right yet, but we managed to get in touch with the escrow company that had painted the walls and got the color of the baseboard and crown molding, so we’ll repaint to match. We hope to eventually paint the kitchen cabinets which are still the blonde wood and add the same hardware, but this time hire professionals :o). Anyway, I think it’s a big improvement from how it looked when we moved in….
