This the night before. The kids were helping crush the graham crackers for the choc jello cake
Ephraim loved it so much that he got upset when he had to take turns
Distractions from Papa were very welcome
Pumpkin pies are ready for the fridge!
The table is set
The kids are excited
Turkey is done (well it was done over an hour early, so we had to keep it hot and covered and then broil it at the end, hence the weird "golden" color)
Wow, we look really tired here
Resting off the turkey
One of the cool things about my parents being here at this time is that Ephraim was just deciding to wean off nursing to sleep. So a new way of going to sleep was in order. Enter Papa holding and singing to him every night!
Because Papa and Ephraim are buddies! My Dad spent hours up in the playroom with the kids playing trains. What kid wouldn't love that?
They also built a snowman
They made 3 layers, but left off one until Daddy could get home to lift it up
They spent lots of time sledding down the ramp
And is that the best snowman you've seen? I think he'll be around until April, so they had to make it good :)
