About halfway through November, I flew to Colorado with Scarlett to visit the family for a couple weeks before Thanksgiving. Austin stayed back to work, (we missed daddy those ten days!) but he was able to come out for the holiday weekend with Taylor and Lynnea.

 We played our hearts out at Gigi’s, lounged, chatted, got hairs did, play-dated with Lizzie and her nephew, shopped, baked, feasted, and played some more. A perfect visit!

Scarlett {thankfully} really enjoyed the airport (her new Mickey D toy helped haha). Our flight didn’t leave til like 8:30 pm so I was nervous she would get tired and lose her cool but we made it break down free!

Then she was so pumped to be there that she didn’t go to bed until 1:30 am that night. Let’s just say that started a little bit of a trend so the days and nights were loooong for this mama throughout that first week. Thankfully the good company made it very bearable!

^^My mom had this cute puzzle waiting for Scarlett the morning after we arrived. Thank you, Gigi!

Aust and I took on the cheese tray prep.

Pretty fancy if I do say so myself. Lynnea’s family joined us around noon and we dined on some cheese and veggies while we waited for dinner to finish cooking. Scarlett must have been worn out because after eating probably a whole can of olives, she passed out.

This might sound awful but I had hoped and hoped that she would nap through Thanksgiving dinner so I could eat in peace :) And boy did my girl come through! Not only did she nap through dinner, she slept for four hours. I got to eat, take a nice little nap, work on a puzzle, and play some games baby free. My lucky day. Once she finally woke up we got her settled in for her own little feast.
