This post is going to be one conglomeration! First up, my weekly health check in. I made it through the holidays without overindulging, although I certainly ate some very rich, sugary foods that I wouldn't normally! I was up two pounds at my weigh in, but I am not discouraged. I am pleased with how I ate, especially with so many temptations lurking. Exercise has been on somewhat of a standstill because my back is really having fits. I would appreciate prayer, if you think of it. My verse for this week is Galatians 5:16: "So I say, live by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh."
We did have a wonderful Thanksgiving day, consisting of cooking, the Macy's Day Parade, lunch with family, naps, and lots of family time. We always drive up to the mountains on the Friday after Thanksgiving to get a Christmas tree, so all of the pics in this post are from that day (I forgot to take any pictures at our family meal on Thursday!).
Eden couldn't wait to pick out a tree - here she is waiting on the rest of us to get ready:
Still waiting, outside this time:
The place that we go to is called McInnis Farms and they have a hayride down to the tree fields. This is one of my absolute favorite pictures of Jason, he is making an expression exactly like his dad:
(they always have hot apple cider to take with you on the hayride)
Eden was hanging out with Grammy and Grumps on our ride:
Harry spent most of his time hunting for sticks and rocks, but he loved being outside and roaming the hills:
One of the best shots of the day:
We claimed that baby!
Love this one too:
Sara and Kellan (who had to play Harry herders all afternoon):
Harry loved riding on the hayride:
And last, I had to share this series of shots. We were trying to get one with all of the kids and Harry just was not interested in helping. Poor Kellan, he didn't stand a chance!
