One Week Closer to My Favorite Time Of Year!

We’re one week closer to my favorite time of year! I love the week leading into Thanksgiving (the fact that the kids have the entire week doesn’t hurt, either) and all of the preparation for getting the house all decorated for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. This last week was rather chill. I think the only note-worthy thing that happened was that Joseph lost another tooth (and is already wiggling yet another loose one rather vigorously). Today, Paul took Joseph to the movies, so Abigail and I popped up some popcorn and were going to watch a movie on our own, but then she opted to watch YouTube videos instead, haha.

This is what happens when the Tooth Fairy has a burst of creative juices and decorates the money envelope. I told him to smile for the picture, but he had just been woken up…and he is definitely my child (in that mornings are not his favorite), so this is what I got. He perked up a bit more when he saw the quarters. 😉
Sometimes I feel like I spend most of my day in the car…running errands, ferrying kids back and forth, and the like. It’s just the season of life I’m in, I suppose.
When the tortillas you get at the store are still warm from just being baked, tacos for dinner (in this case, breakfast tacos) are a must!
Checking out the sunrise on one of our morning walks.
I sure love this brown-eyed girl!
We sure live in a beautiful world!
Yet another awesome thing about my pressure cooker: I baked these potatoes in less than an hour!
Baked potato and broccoli for dinner. Yum!
By some small miracle, I was the first one awake this morning, so I decided to use up the super-ripe bananas and make mini banana bread loaves.
I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on them before I baked them. They were so good!
She was super-excited to be able to have popcorn and watch a show. Plus, since it’s a lazy Saturday, she got to stay in pjs, which she also loves.
