South Dakota Surprise!

Two days after we returned from Georgia, we turned around and flew to South Dakota to surprise Justin's mom. It was very relaxing for Justin and I, but Mason spent every waking hour playing and vacuuming (His new favorite thing to do. He seriously vacuumed for hours!)We spent a little more time there than planned, due to a lovely blizzard. Justin's dad literally dug through a 3ft. wall of snow to allow us to drive to the airport. But that's what happens when you visit South Dakota in December! It was worth it!
Mason liked the rolly bag as much, if not more than the train!

Happy Birthday, Sarah!
Of course, Mason got cake.

Back in DC, enjoying a good book and a good drink (white grape juice).
Some "just because" flowers Justin bought me back in November. I just want them to be remembered. I loved them. What a perfect husband I have!

Thanksgiving +

I just realized it's been a really long time since I've updated. I plugged in my camera to the computer and we've taken 232 pics since I've posted last. Are you ready to see them?
Just kidding. Here's a few from the trip to GA for Thanksgiving, plus other miscellaneous pics from November.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! ! ! ! Family, Food, and Football! ! ! ! There is no commercialization. Just basic and perfect happiness with thousands of calories added on top.

For those who did not play in this turkey bowl, just skip to the bottom because it may be boring. But I could look at these pics a hundred times and smile every time. It was a perfect turkey bowl, ending with Justin catching the winning touchdown.

Dad will always be the best turkey bowl quarterback of all time.

Justin scored the winning touchdown! This wasn't the catch, I only got it on video. But he won the game! Woot woot!
Mason giving the play.

Yummy Thanksgiving Feast! ! ! ! !!

Does life get any happier than this?
And we had a few accidents in the days back in DC after the trip... but he smiled through it!

Hide and Seek

I've been collecting pictures on my phone for the past few weeks of Mason's favorite hiding places. He seems to always hide when my phone is nowhere around, so even though some are dark and blurry, they were the best I could get, so I kept them. As soon as I start saying anything like, "Okay, let's go..." or "come here and let's ..." it's an immediate trigger for him to run and hide. I'm just glad he's not out of the "if-I-can't-see-you-you-can't-see-me" stage so I can still find him.

And just because he's cute, here's a few at the playground.
