happy birthday joseph

cousin joseph will be turning 5 this week and today we went to sport zone for his party. i had so much fun getting stuck in the ball pit, jumping on the moon bounce and riding the carousel. happy birthday joseph!

C is for cookie

we finally made some holiday cookies this weekend. i loved rolling out the dough and cutting out different shapes including the xmas dinosaur and Hanukkah rhino! ha ha the only bad thing about making cookies is that you can not eat them till they are baked!

Happy Thanksgiving!

What a fun filled Thanksgiving week I have been having. It started off last Sunday with a McElwain family brunch in York. Then there was a few shopping trips with my favorite shopping partners Bubbe and Pop!

On Wednesday cousin Rebecca came from Boston to spend a few days with us. We had so much fun with her and can not wait for her to come again.

On Thanksgiving day, we had everyone at our house and we ate and ate and ate and Rebecca helped cousin Joseph and I make snowmen crafts. I loved the tofu turkey and the cool whip for the pumpkin pie!

We all needed today to rest!
