I can’t believe the long weekend is over already and it’s back to the grind tomorrow. I’m dreading it just a bit. It’s been so nice and relaxing at home… It’s a good thing we only have about three weeks until Christmas break. Of course, those three weeks will be filled with holiday concerts, holiday parties galore and prep for our upcoming family trip to New York. The anticipation and excitement are huge.
This past week was filled with lots of relaxing and fun and plenty of good food.
Day 327. Monday. I took this picture outside the greek restaurant we ate at Monday night. I loved the balloon lights and decided to give the photo a little edit.
Day 328. Tuesday. This one is turning into quite the little artist. Pencils, crayons, markers, or paints, as long as it’s handy, she’ll use it to create works of art. It’s hard to get her to finish her homework properly and without rushing through it because all she wants to do is draw, color and paint.
Day 329. Wednesday. Even though there is quite a big screen for her to watch, she instead chooses the tiny one right in front of her to get her entertainment. Ah, kids and technology.
Day 330. Thursday. These three. They are my world. I had to take the chance while we were all together in dressed for dinner to grab a few pics.
Day 331. Friday. We didn’t need to cook for Thanksgiving. But we made up for it the day after. Well, the hubby did most of the cooking. Take a bag of red potatoes, a few cobs of corn, some sausage (all beef in our case), crab legs (we need to get more next time), some cod, crawfish, shrimp, a bag of little neck clams (that’s about 50) and a dozen cherry stones for good measure, throw it all in a big pot of boiling broth made with Old Bay seasoning, give it a stir, simmer and when it’s all done, dumb it on a table covered in news paper. Then step back and watch every one dive in! Love me a good seafood boil. 🙂 (Of course, this is a bit of a simplified explanation so you get the idea.)
Day 332. Saturday. The agenda — movie, dinner and tree/holiday lighting with my girls. Ally and I went to see “The Good Dinosaur”. I cried, of course. Ally said her eyes watered but she didn’t shed a tear. 🙂 After the movie, we went to dinner at a sushi restaurant and she was so proud of the fact that she was able to hold a piece of tofu with the chopsticks.
Day 333. Sunday. Another one of Ally and her artistic little streak showing through. She gets quite involved in the process of creating and doesn’t pay any attention to her appearance or cleanliness.
This was a very Ally oriented week it seems. She’s my most willing photography subject these days so I guess, it’s not really too surprising. Have a great week and enjoy the pre-Christmas season!
