My mom has gotten them both some matching Thanksgiving and Christmas pajamas recently that are so cute! We had some friends from Portland come to our place for Thanksgiving. It was so fun and we were happy to have the company. Finn is getting really excited for Christmas (which he pronounces "keh-mas"). When he disobeys from time to time, all I have to say is "maybe Santa won't bring you any presents and just coal..." Then he quickly responds, "no, no, I'll be good! I don't want coal! It's yucky like garbage!" I wonder if any parents have ever actually given their kids coal? I wouldn't have the heart to.
We had a little bit of snow one day and I helped Finn make a snowman. He actually wanted to call it a "snow bear". Finn has so much stinking energy these days! It's fun to see how excited he gets about things and his zest for life, but man, somehow it's draining... Now that our cold and dark Maine winter is here and the temperatures are in the single digits, I feel like we all need to get out and move around a bit more. Dennen tries to make time for me to go to the gym which is nice. Speaking of Dennen, he was a great dad and put up some Christmas lights for Finn.
At this time of year I am grateful for so much. I love my little family and how they help me learn to be a better person every day.
