Turkey Day Recap

There is nothing better than celebrating the holidays with our Eleanor! 

Last week we had the best time at E’s first Thanksgiving!!!! 

I am completely obsessed with holiday clothes for E….so I am super happy I was able to find her several Thanksgivingish clothes for the month! :) 


One of my favorites being her turkey butt jammies!

I got a little sad when I was shopping the other day because I realized that she is almost out of the sizes where they have animals or cute things on the butts of clothes!  Nooooooooo!  I love this so much.  I guess it would be wrong for an 8 year old to walking around with a turkey on her butt! ha!  I am enjoying my last little bit of  cute prints on E’s butt!


We all woke up on Thanksgiving morning to run the Turkey Trot in our city!  It was our first time….and we will definitely be making that a tradition.  There were so many people there.  It was nuts.  E seemed to really love it.  She kept trying to get out of her stroller to look at all the runners! 

I am just now getting back into exercise and I was totally feeling it after the race!  haha!  :/ 


The above pic is our family Thanksgiving pic.  E is wearing her turkey dress!  And yes she is sucking her thumb! :)  She has turned out to be a full blown thumb sucker.  We tried and tried to keep the paci, but she started refusing it.  We get LOTS of comments from people like….. “you better not let her do that….it will ruin her teeth!” We even get comments from strangers about it.  It is a tad frustrating.  (and annoying!)  I always keep my mouth shut.  But this is my personal blog, so I guess I can rant a little right?  What I want to tell those advice-givers….You try to stop a 7 month old from putting her thumb in her mouth!  :)  And rant over.  Plus, Eleanor is an extremely content and happy baby.  So thumb sucking isn’t all bad! 


Just another pic of E in a Thanksgiving shirt.  And our cute little Maddie! BFF!


That face makes me MELT!


My momma and I went out black friday shopping!  We had the best time as always…..but it was way more relaxed this year since I am still breastfeeding.  It wasn’t a marathon like it has been in years past. haha!  We can totally shop for a ridiculous amount of hours!  We made several pit stops so I could feed and cuddle with Eleanor. 

Just wanted to recap our Thanksgiving festivities!  And now the Christmas season is in full swing and I could not be more excited!!!!!! 

Did anyone go out shopping on Black Friday?  What did you shop for?

She's so stinkin' precious! & Elyse takes a pacifier and we get similar comments from friends & strangers! Sometimes a happy baby is worth it!

I can't believe you took E black friday shopping...I never would have attempted that! Of course I'm not really a black friday shopper anyway!

I love all of her Turkey outfits, I had a big Momma failure moment and bought absolutely NO Thanksgiving outfits for did this happen?!? Oh well, I'll just makeup for it during Christmas! ha!

I agree about the cute animals on butts. I'm trying to think if Chloe can still fit into anything like that, I don't think so. She looks adorable in all her Thanksgiving outfits! And way to go starting her early with the Black Friday shopping! We did not go this year, and in fact, I have not bought one gift yet! I need to get in gear!

HI!! I just wanted to say hello from the blog swap :) So excited to be paired up and so glad you linked up!!

Your little Eleanor is such a beauty!!
I HATE when people make rude comments about babies... I was a thumb sucker FOR-EVER but guess what the dentist told my mom: you can always fix the teeth but you can't always fix the emotion problems if you force her to take it away... :) I am a happy adult with (what I believe to be) beautiful teeth. fear not. I think thumb sucking is adorable, plus think of all the money you are saving on passy's haha we have to buy new ones at least every few weeks... not sure where they all walk off to ha! :-P
