Here Comes Santa?



My toddler informed me yesterday that he would like to invite Santa over for Thanksgiving dinner.  It went something like this, "Mom, does Santa eat turkey?"  "Sure", I said without thinking as I read my latest issue of House Beautiful.  "Can we invite him over for Turkey Day?"  Looking up from my magazine, I knew I had to think quick.  "Santa is very busy this time of year with reading and checking all of those lists and checking in on who is being naughty or nice", I tried to redirect him.  My son thought for a moment and then asked me if I would make a video of  him singing Here Comes Santa Claus and then send it to the North Pole.  "Do you think  he will come over if he sees my video?", he asked.  "Let's try it", I said.    Then I smiled for the rest of the day.  Happy Turkey Day!

Little Lessons From A Starfish

Today I am thankful for little treasures that nature leaves for us to stumble upon unexpectedly. 

Today I am thankful for discovering these little treasures with my son. 

Today I am thankful to have the opportunity to teach him that life is precious. 

Today I am thankful for the smile on his face as he put this little treasure on the sand and watched it wash back out to sea.

So much to be thankful for this week and always!  Thanks for reading!  Thanks for following!

This past weekend we did a little pre-Black Friday shopping and scored quite a few bargains.  I had to steer clear of many things that caught my eye and focus on my little superhero.  SIGH!  I wouldn't trade it for anything, but Christmas shopping for your little one reminds you of the life altering leap from singlehood to mommyhood!  Here are a few pictures of "what I want, but can't have" and "what I got or will be on the hunt for on Black Friday!"  Happy Monday!

Tom Turkey as Superman?

Tom Turkey as Superman by My Little SuperHero
Backdrop by SuperMom

I remember the days when you would just decorate a turkey with your child by coloring a picture of one, gluing on a few feathers, and maybe adding a set of googly eyes.  I was a little stumped this past Friday when I picked up my little superhero from school.  His assignment-"Disguise Tom Turkey so that he will not be noticed and cooked for Thanksgiving dinner".  We had a choice of disguises including:  a sheep, a cat (not sure about that one), an Indian, a pilgrim, or Superman.  Of course, my daily life entails something superheroish each day.  No surprise here which disguise my own little super guy would choose.  I hope you won't mistake this Superman for Tom Turkey!!!  This Thanksgiving I think we will have fish!  Happy Monday!
