Happy Thanksgiving

Before I leave you for the week to stuff my tummy with food, here's a little peek into what we did last weekend to celebrate a dear friend's birthday:

bruce got to see and play in the snow for the first time!

Unfortunately, we had a little accident a few hours before heading to Lake Tahoe. I had walked away for a minute and something had fallen on Bruce's face, leaving a mark between his eyes. :'( I'm so sorry, honey. I hope it doesn't scar.

I snuck in a little kiss here and there

my second attempt at making a snowman

Let me tell you, building a snowman is no easy task! My first attempt was embarrassing. It turned out to be a mound of snow, which is why I won't waste internet space to show you. ;) I don't know how people make human sized snowmen! One day... one day, I shall succeed. But for now, my mini snowman was good enough for me to cross off number 25 on

my 101 in 1001 list

. Yay!

We tried showing Bruce how to play with the snow but he didn't seem too interested. He loved walking around in it though. I mean, who doesn't love walking around on fluffy snow? Oh, now I'm missing all the good times we had. Snow definitely makes me smile. :)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! And if you just so happen to play with your food and make a penguin out of it, make sure you take a picture and enter the
