Welcome to birdro.com!
My husband Mark and I live in the southeast U.S. with our lovely daughters, Amelia and Florence. We also share our lives with a lab(ish) goofball of a dog named Shelby.
Well, we had a lovely and FULL long weekend! On Thursday morning I woke up early and baked some pumpkin bread for breakfast. We watched some of the parade with Amelia, and then drove up to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for a delicious Thanksgiving meal! After we ate, Uncle Paul went out and rented Toy Story 3 – what a fun movie! We had a lot of fun catching up with Aunt C, Uncle M and all three of Amelia’s cousins.
On Friday morning we put up our Christmas tree! First though, Mark braved the Black Friday traffic and went to the grocery store to pick up some eggnog (even though he hates the taste of it). When I was growing up we used to drink eggnog after decorating the tree, and I wanted to share that tradition with Amelia. She had so much fun – she helped put up almost all of our ornaments, and she REALLY enjoyed drinking some eggnog with me while we admired our tree.
On Saturday we packed into the car and drove up to Natural Tunnel State Park. The last time we were there was over a year ago! Although we didn’t get to see a train come through the tunnel, we all had a lot of fun. A big thank you goes out to Grandpa for carrying Amelia the last half of our hike back to the parking lot, and another big thank you to Uncle Paul for sharing some of his great pictures!Visitors, Weekend Wrap Up | Tags: Amelia, Family, Holiday | Comments (2)
