Snow and Giving Thanks

Our first snow has come and gone here in Bellingham. Elizabeth had a being pulled around in this little sled. While her dad and brothers were a bit more adventurous and took another sled down ever hill in our yard.
 The next morning we had the most beautiful sun rise over Lake Whatcom!

It snowed again overnight before thanksgiving, but I didn't get any photos. :-(
We had a great day on Thanksgiving. We took the kids to see Tangled with my parents. Then we all came back to my house for our turkey dinner. Josh attempted to deep fry a turkey, but it didn't turn out so well. Thankfully, I did a second in my roaster oven, that turned out delicious! The older two spent  two nights out at my parents, so Josh and I could do some black friday shopping, I finally got a new printer, but other than that wasn't too impressed with the sales this year. Saturday, I baked some yummy spritz cookies that can be seen over on OH starting on Wednesday. Then we set up the tree and decorated it. This is the first year we did a fake tree. One of the best parts of having a Christmas tree is the smell, and it's just weird that mine doesn't smell. Maybe I can find a pine scented candle, hmm? Sunday we all started coming down with bad cold and stayed home from church. Which, brings us today. The last of the leftovers are gone, all the dishes are clean and put away and we're all feeling better. Looking forward to the Christmas season ahead! What are you looking forward to?
