I love all these new experiences with the girls when they show us that they understand what we are saying to them. Like when i ask one of them to go get something, and they do it!, its amazing and becoming incredibly helpful. I love seeing how they remember what we have taught them. Like how to put their arms through the sleeves of their shirt or getting the food on the fork and into their mouths all by themselves. In the past few weeks the girls have memorized the hand motions to a couple of songs, The Itsy Bitsy Spider and Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the bed. Sometimes they do the hand motions with so much excitement I think they are going to knock themselves out, other times they look at me as if I am a complete nutcase, usually when I am trying to get them to show an audience.
Here they are performing The Itsy Bitsy Spider. I should mark this as a first, it’s their first recital.
Please excuse my not so great singing, or just turn the volume down.

Thanksgiving Day

I love Thanksgiving, it’s probably my favorite holiday. 20121122-202628.jpg20121122-211013.jpg20121122-211029.jpg

20121122-211107.jpgI love it for several reasons, since its not a religious holiday there are no services to attend. It’s not that I mind the services, it’s just nice to get to spend the whole day off enjoying free time with family. And it’s a great excuse to dress babies up in their fancy dresses from Safta. They are from Zara (similar here).20121122-202357.jpg20121122-202651.jpg20121122-202603.jpg20121122-202416.jpg20121122-202758.jpg20121122-202738.jpg20121122-202428.jpg20121122-202453.jpg20121122-202618.jpgAnother reason Thanksgiving is a favorite of mine is because we spend it out in the country at my sister lake house, which is beautiful and relaxing and always one of my favorite places to be. OK, its not exactly out in the country, its more like a country club, but the town is far away from a big city. 20121122-202815.jpg20121122-202440.jpg20121122-202348.jpg20121122-202323.jpg20121122-202329.jpg

20121122-211018.jpgThen there is the fact that Thanksgiving is always within a week of my birthday, so I always get to celebrate my birthday with my family.

And last is the deserts! 20121122-202259.jpg20121122-202306.jpg20121122-202312.jpg20121122-211024.jpgI love pumpkin and pecan pie, whip cream in anything is perfect and there is always enough chocolate left over to last for days. The actual meal is always tasty too, but it’s the deserts that keep bringing me back each year.

So that’s a wrap for thanksgiving 2012, let the games be watched.

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving and spent it in company that you enjoyed. I hope you ate enough gravy to last you until next year and I hope that each day you remember that you can be thankful for the people who make your life special.

Happy Thanksgiving.
