Here is my list for this Thanksgiving week:
1. Begin preparations for Advent and St. Nicholas Day next week.
2. Finish sorting baby clothes and put those bins away!
3. Haircuts for the "big" boys.
4. Go to bed early.
5. Pay more attention to my tone of voice. I feel like I've been shrill lately.

His hat fits perfectly this year, Kat! His snowsuit, however, is far too small. Hope to remedy that this weekend!
The view from the end of the driveway to the corner.
One of the hosta encased in ice.
See how nice and snow-free the porch stays? That will be one of our playspaces when the snow gets too high to tramp around the yard.
Nothing like hot chocolate to warm up!

Ready for the oven!
(I experimented with pink and white layers since we're considering using these for a baby shower we're hosting this month!)

On the right, you can see I also attached a hook for his apron!
The left side features his window washing/cleaning kit, our child-sized washboard, and his brush and dustpan. On the right are his plates, several bowls and cups (I couldn't fit everything!), and his toddler-sized silverware, courtesy of Oneida Limited. I love these sets: they include a spoon, fork, and butter knife and are not the small baby sets, but not quite full-sized either! Just perfect for preschooler hands!

There you have it! This room and the kitchen are where we spend most of our days!
