{weekend recap}

Laying in our bed and typing this after a wonderful weekend! Take me back! At least this week is only a 3 day work week for me & for many!

Friday night, we went over to my mom's house to watch the KU game {basketball of course!}.  We ordered pizza and I brought over a delicious snack for us to munch on! It will have it's own post later this week! So so good! And, because I made it you know it's simple :)

We let Landon stay up until 10:30! Don't tell the parent police on us.  When we got home, Mike and I were chatting about JFK and Landon fell asleep on his shoulder.  How sweet is this baby? I mean....

Saturday, we of course watched cartoons and ate breakfast in bed.  Isn't that what weekends are for? Then we went to a birthday party.  Landon seriously needed a nap, so he got one and I went to my moms.  How festive do the wreaths look on her new kitchen table?? We made a trip back to World Market while Landon napped to get a rug for under the table. Can't wait for Thanksgiving at this table!

 I found the cutest CUTEST ornament at WM! How stinking adorable is this? I was thisclose to buying it, but held off, because it's not really our theme. Plus, when we move I'll probably be switching things up.

After Landon's nap, we got ready to go to Union Station to see the Christmas tree lights turn on! It was such a great night.  We parked at Crown Center and took the link over to Union Station & got there about 15 minutes before they turned on!

We then took the Link back over to Crown Center and ate at Fritz's Railroad! Landon loves this place, can't you see it on his face? Trains come and deliver your food and they were super busy that night, so he loved seeing the constant trains! 

I ordered a hash brown burger, which turns out is not that great... the fries on the other hand....

We went to see the awesome model train exhibit...

And then Landon got to ride the train! The mini train that is...I asked the 'conductor' "Are there seatbelts?" "No, lady it only goes 2 & 1/2 miles and hour..." 

First time around = liked it.
Second time around = not sure. 
Third time around = panic.

This photo was obviously taken the third time around...

I can definitely say, he was in choo choo heaven! We will be back! 

Saturday was such a great time! 

Sunday, we woke up and went to my dads/step moms for our first of FOUR Thanksgivings! First, we sadly watched the Chiefs lose in the last 30 seconds! Ugh!  

Then, it was a full on Thanksgiving meal complete with Turkey/ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes with marshmallows {a personal fav}, green bean casserole, stuffing, rolls, dumplings, pumpkin pie with tons of whipped cream and banana pudding! We were full and tired! 

Landon didn't take a nap but he was a total trooper and ended up going to sleep on the way home. When we got home, we watched an episode of Jake and he finally fell asleep at 7! Woah, No-Nap Landon! 

The tree was supposed to go up last night, but we just did not feel like putting up the tree without our baby. So tonight's the night that the tree goes up! We were totally planning on going to Reindeer Lane this year to get our first LIVE Cristmas tree, but with selling our house and trying to simplify, we are putting it off until next year. Although to do plan on getting some live wreaths! They smell so yummy!

Looking forward to this short work week and all the yummy food & family time to come on Thursday! And lots of Christmas shopping that will take place after that at the lake!

Happy Thanksgiving Week, everyone!
