Winding Down

Three weekends ago Munchkin had a play date with a friend from school.  They had a great time playing for a few hours.  The little girls mother commented that the reason why her daughter and Munchkin get along so well is that they are both thinkers.  I hadn’t thought of Munchkin like that before since he is our first I just thought kids are like that.  The mom said her other girls are not thinkers and more artistic.  It makes sense all kids are different, Munchkin is a thinker. 

Also that weekend we went to the movies to see Wreck it Ralph.  While Munchkin and Nithin saw that movie I went to see the new Twilight movie.  It was a nice low key weekend.

For Thanksgiving we headed up to Nithin’s family in Mass.  Munchkin just loves his cousins there.  Here it looks like he doesn’t love them but he had just waken up from a nap.

We had a very nice family Thanksgiving.  My sister and brother-in-law are serious cooks so everything was fabulous.  Our eldest niece baked three desserts.  So there is very little for others to bring or do which is kinda nice.  This year with me catching a cold just before Thanksgiving we brought wine as I didn’t have the energy to bake as I usually do.  Our niece did a great job compensating.  Thanksgiving evening Munchkin had his first sleepover without us around (we went and stayed at Aja & Bapuma’s house one town away).  He did great we were told and even slept in.

The day after Thanksgiving we stayed away from the stores and took the kids to go paint pottery.  Munchkin chose a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and I painted a gnome.

We had a family party for our middle cousin, whose birthday was on Friday.  This was a nice picture of the cousin’s together.

We came home from Thanksgiving on Saturday night to avoid the traffic.  Sunday my cold totally kicked my butt so I was in bed most of the day.  We did manage to decorate the house for Christmas.

This weekend we spent Saturday putting up our Christmas tree and baking a moose cake for Grandma’s birthday.  Munchkin was very specific we needed to make a cake with a moose on it.  It took a half hour and multiple pictures on pinterest to get out of him that he had the below in mind.  It was a really good chocolate cake with coffee frosting.  Today we had Grandma’s birthday and cooking and baking for that.

Tomorrow we are off to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular with Munchkin for the first time.  We are all very excited.
