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.

Almost 8 Months

by Juliemara
06.11.12

As the girls approach their 8th month birthday (tomorrow) I look at my to do list in amazement, so little has gotten done! HA. But seriously. These little babies amaze us more and more every day. I don’t know if I am “teaching” them the right things or in the right way. I don’t have a degree in early childhood development but I read my what to expect http://www.whattoexpect.com/first-year/landing-page.aspx and Babycenter emails everyday that give me tips on how to help my child thorough her developmental process. I feel that I am doing the best I can and they seem to be happy babies. I don’t want to be a tiger mom, it’s just not my goal. I don’t think my children will cry themselves to sleep or want to play games in the middle of the night when they are 15, even if I do go to them six times after putting them to bed or play with them for a few minutes at three am because they feel like being up, after all they will only be these little babies, without any reason to consider, only joy in the smallest things, for a few more months.

Thinking back over the past year, my husband and I were remembering that there was something our little miss Talia did, on a regular basis that made us laugh, but we couldn’t remember what t was, which is crazy because we would act it out to each other and laugh about it for a while. As I write this I am remembering what it was, it was simple and looking back not nearly as amusing as the little things she does these days, she use to stretch her fists over her head and point her chin way up, while Jordan would stretch with her hands under her chin and elbows pointed way out. I don’t venue know if I have a picture to commemorate these moments past and I will try to make sure that I capture all the future little things they do that make us laugh. But such is life that once you realize how special something is, it’s already gone, never to return. As with these little idiosyncrasies of our babies first few months and beyond.

Remember this post, Tre Magnifique and the girls cute pink outfits their Safta gave them from Petit Bateau

Here are the ladies pretty in pink again in their new Zara dresses from Safta, who comes to visit today!

3 weeks old!

Yesterday was the girls 3 week birthday! 3 weeks already, I can’t believe how fast the weeks go. So when do they start sleeping through the night? Just kidding. I actually really enjoy my time with them in the middle of the night. I may take two hours but it’s only for a short time in our lives so I am just savoring every moment.

To celebrate three weeks and the beauty of fall the girls got dressed up in really beautiful baby Zara dresses that Safta brought from home. We took pics in the crib, in the nursery and outside with Safta.
