After a Turkey Day of good food (Thanks, Grandma B!) and some Jayhawk basketball, Paul and I got to have a date night, including seeing Catching Fire and a little early bird shopping for Max's Christmas.
As part of our Thanksgiving prep, Max and I made these wicked awesome turkey cookies.
|First, we separated our candies by color.|
|Then we had a cuddling selfie.|
|Then we had a crazy selfie.|
|Piecing together the birds. Max did a lot of the work this year. Pretty fun.|
|A few Thanksgiving turkeys!|
And quite possibly, the best picture of Thanksgiving!
On Black Friday, we avoided the shopping malls and headed to the Christmas tree farm outside of town!
|Oh ttttrreeeee! Where are you?|
|The Borchardt men carry away a beauty.|
|Waiting. Grandma photobomb!|
|Max is keeping his eye on Weaver's rooftop. Don't want to miss the big guy.|
|What is that up there?|
|There he is!|
|I heart all the weirdness of my town.|
|Keeping an eye on Santa to make sure the LFD gets him down safely.|
|Thank goodness. He made it into the rescue ladder. Sorry for the bright lights.|
The fire department kept the cherries on the whole time.
|Ah. Almost safely on the ground.|
