Tis the Season

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  We had a great holiday weekend together.  It was super fun to have Dan home for 4 days with us.  We wish every week was a 3 day work week!  We didn’t do anything out of the norm for Thanksgiving.  We spent time with family and ate good, good food.  We spent some time on Friday browsing the online sales, but bought nothing.  On Saturday we watched a very stressful BYU game, but are thankful for a Cougar victory after some very poor Cougar execution.  And on Sunday we had a family dinner with the Grossen side where we opened our new Christmas ornaments for the year.  It was lovely.  Here are the 2 photos we took all weekend!


On Monday we went and got our Christmas tree when Dan got home from work.  It was the first time that Jack wore his winter coat.  I was dying of laughter cause he looked like a marshmallow.  It was seriously killing me.  Until he fell face first into the dirt and busted open both of his lips.  Poor baby.  Needless to say, we didn’t let him walk around without holding one of our hands after that since he was obviously having stability issues. We love our tree and the piney scent in our house.


We had to go buy some extra lights yesterday cause the tree is much larger than we realized.  After I was done stringing the new lights, Jack thought he would decorate by adding some special ornaments of his own.


Legos and stacking cups.  He is so creative and smart.  Last night, we hung the ornaments, but only took video.  Perhaps a photo shall come later of our glorious tree!

  1. Jack we love your ornaments. You look so grown up in your big boy jacket. I’m sorry you fell and hurt your mouth. Oh, how you are going to have so much fun this Christmas season. See you in two weeks. Hugs and kisses!

  2. Jack looks the cutest in his new green coat! Did he throw a fit when you tried to put it on him like he did when we first bought it? I have a feeling you may lose some toys in that tree this year! Love that kid!
