Weeks Forty-Seven and Forty-Eight

This week was Thanksgiving week, and right now, we have so much to be thankful for.

We are thankful for this little face that we can't wait to meet in just 6-7 short weeks.

We have this sweet face that was SO excited to make banana cream pie for Thanksgiving dinner.

We have each other, and that is no small thing.

Also, at long last, we finally have something else big to be thankful for. We sold our house!! And we bought a new house!! Well, fingers crossed, if all goes well, all of this will be finalized in a few short weeks. We should be closing on both houses on December 31st. Just in time for a really BIG new beginning. I don't want to share a picture of the house yet and jinx it, but we are just so excited. We believe it is the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood to raise our family, and if we have it our way, it is the house our kids will some day "come home to" when they are grown and out on their own.

Here are a few more Thanksgiving pictures of Nora and her cousin Naomi who I *think* she has finally stopped calling "baby Naomi".

And is there any better way to end Thanksgiving week than to "deck the halls"?

Nora has created her Christmas wish list for Santa. She wants:
- An iPad
- A fairy (??)
- A trumpet
- A violin
- A flute

Really? A trumpet, violin, AND flute?? Oh, Nora, if Santa fulfills your wish list, it will be a very noisy Christmas.

Since we are moving right after the holiday, we are keeping it simple. Just our small artificial tree decorated with generic ornaments that Brad picked up at Target (because ours are in storage and it was too much trouble to try to find them right now). No garland, no snowman candles, no lights outside. But we have our little tree, and we are looking forward to a very Merry Christmas and a huge, life-changing New Year.
