Decking The Halls

Like everyone, we tackled holiday decorating last weekend in between cooking, baking, eating and shopping. It's always fun to get the family together and happily decking the halls with christmas songs playing in the background. Such a heartwarming tradition! 

As every year, we also put out a baby tree (previous baby trees here) for Aston and this year he was such a big help decorating the big tree as well as his own little one. Picking out his favorite ornaments (while breaking a few along the way) and digging through boxes of christmas decor proved to be a fun thing to do for him. With still loads of decorating to complete, here are bits and pieces of our decked out home. 
I still have a few things to put out like our front door wreaths and kitchen island tree. But so far, it's really beginning to look a lot like christmas! 


Happy Thanksgiving

From our family to your's, 
wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving! 


Scenes from Halloween


Halloween 2012 Halloween 2012 Halloween 2012

Yesterday's halloween was so much fun. The day started with the annual school's halloween day parade and classroom party. The kids get to wear their favorite costumes (they were all so cute!) and enjoyed a post-parade party with arts and crafts, sweet treats and a party favor to take home. 

By the time i picked up Aston from school, I can tell he was pooped. But he was a trooper as he knows later in the evening he has a whole block to T or T. His cousins Daniel and David - Ailynne's boys - were our early trick or treaters, so we headed out and finished the rest of the night with them. Oh, and we also crashed a neighbor's block party - all in good fun!
