My mom was in town last week! It’s always so nice when the grandmas are here. She really wanted to go shopping, so we took a trip to Downtown Disney.

Ice Skaters and the Lego Store:



I took Little T’s school photos, which was insane, but awesome! πŸ™‚

On Thanksgiving, we watched the parade, played with Legos, cooked, and had dinner with family. πŸ™‚





Louise and I had a wedding, we were so happy to see the Christmas tree in the lobby! The wedding was gorgeous, and it was just a beautiful and fun day!


We did accidentally break a flash, but thankfully we have spares!


The next day, we did Christmas Tree shopping and spent the day decorating. One of the things we’ve discovered since we’ve become a multi cultural family, is how difficult it is to find toys, books, and movies that have kids that are the same race as Little T. We have to order a lot of things online, like an elf on the shelf with black hair and brown skin, but finding these things is few and far between. I just wish I could find one African American cowboy, or pirate, or a figure for our Christmas Village set, or a Christmas book that he can relate to. It’s crazy that in this day and age, toys and figures aren’t more diverse. What’s even sadder, is that I would never have even thought about it until we had Little T.


I bring it up, because we spent a lot of that day searching for those things. Didn’t find them, but we’re going to look some more online and see if we can find anything.

But all in all, we had a great time decorating. Little T was more into the ornaments this year and had lots of questions about them. He also loved the train set that a friend had given to us, and we watched the train go around the tree for the longest time. πŸ™‚

And here is Little T cuddling with nana in the morning, she came to stay with us for the week. One of Little T’s favorite things to do is cuddle with both of his grandma’s. πŸ™‚


And today, we spent the morning cleaning and working. Somewhere along the line while we were cleaning, Little T and Big T found these outfits. Can you see how hard they were working? I can. :p


So that was the week! Our house is so nice now that it’s decorated! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
