Christmas, moving, Chloe, Thanksgiving, and other random thoughts

Today, my thoughts are coming to you in fragments. 

- I didn't celebrate Thanksgiving yesterday. Thanksgiving is SO last month. Literally, since I'm Canadian. This is what we did on Thanksgiving, what I was thankful for on Thanksgiving, and my little turkey's Thanksgiving suit

- TGIF, simply because it's one day closer to moving day, which I am super excited for. It's Tuesday, BTW. 

- Wednesday night Chloe slept 9 hours straight. I, however, kept waking up all night for some reason. 

- My step-mother and half sister came to visit with me and Chloe Thursday night. It was a nice visit. I'm glad they got to spend time with her. 

- I found not one, but two free couches that I can pick up the day I move. They're white, and not the prettiest, but they're free! 

- I am getting so excited for Christmas. I can't wait to get moved, get my tree back, and start decorating. Even though I have a limited budget, I'm not worrying about it. I wish I could spend tons on everyone, but I can't. I got something pretty cool for my brother which is great because he doesn't normally get anything exciting.

- On a sad note, it's been a year since my grandfather has his stroke. It makes me sad re-reading that post I wrote just two days after it happened, but more than anything I'm just grateful here's still here with us, he seems happy, and he's in great physical health. I hope he keeps kicking around long enough so Chloe can be old enough to remember her old Pepe. He loves her so much. 

- Today I officially have a two-month old daughter. Her two month photos will be coming along next week. In the meantime, enjoy this beautiful photo from the other day

Have a great weekend!

She is so cute (and a little serious, at least in that photo). I think it's cool that you can see a baby's personality so early. What a little sweetheart.

Good luck with the move, and look into finding a couple of couch covers :) (Heck, a blanket will do in a pinch, too.)

Sorry about your grandfather's stroke. I completely understand your wanting Chloe to be old enough to remember the love he showers on her (I've been there.).

Here's to an easy move! Have a great weekend. Thanks for linking up.

Your daughter is adorable! That's a great picture.

Couch covers are definitely the way to go! If you're extremely crafty, my friend found a tablecloth for 25¢ at a yard sale and made it into a cover. She claims it was a pattern she couldn't pass up. Lol I on the other hand would never be able to make it look decent hehe.

I hope your moving process goes smoothly. I hate moving :-/.

Oh and ps. You make really adorable babies. Just saying ;)

Good Luck on the move, I hope it all goes well.

Cute baby and I agree very serious in the last picture, but I don't blame her sitting having my picture taken can be a ordeal sometimes. :0)

hahahaha! "Thanksgiving is so last month." I'm Canadian too, but we were on vacation at the time so I feel like I missed out on Thanksgiving this year.

Your daughter is gorgeous!

Yay for moving! it will be so nice for you and Chloe.
She looks adorable in that picture, wide eyed and looking at everything.
Pepe is doing incredible well and how could he not just adore chloe!

What a divine picture of your cutie! And I agree with 4444. Couch covers work well.

Heather said...

What a cutie!

I'm a Canadian living in the US, so I just celebrate twice... I'm thankful though that at this time of the year I can get turkey for .59 a lb!

Moving, ack! I hope not to have to move again until my kid(s) are grown and we can ditch a lot of stuff in the process!

And as for Christmas, I can't really decide if I'm excited, or just enthused because it gives me one more way to over-occupy my mind. We don't have much of a budget so we're making... everything. Ack, right?

P.S. - Thanks for stopping by on my SITS Day! I'm your newest follower :)

As a Canadian living in the USA, trying to explain our Thanksgiving is a lost cause. Then again, I still do not get football so...

Mary said...

What a doll-baby! I think you Canadians are on to something not having T'giving so close to Christmas!

Sean Marie said...

So much catching I have to do! I'm glad you got the apartment though! And happy two months little Chloe!

Baby Sister said...

I'm glad your grandpa is still around too. :) That is an adorable picture of Chloe!! I can't believe it's already been 2 months!!
