It never ceases to amaze me how excited Peter and Gaelle get over experiences that are new to them. They knew about Thanksgiving but really didn't know all it entailed. So as Thanksgiving approached, they were over the top excited... thinking it was going to be a great day. And it was. We all had so much to be thankful for.

So as we started putting dishes out on the table, the questions flew fast and furious. They had heard the words but didn't really know what they all meant. Stuffing was identified as cranberry sauce. Gravy was called sauce. And sauce was LOVED!

Sweet potato casserole was another favorite. Why not? It's almost like dessert. Yum.

This past weekend we switched the kids clothes around. Summer clothes away, sweaters out. Gaelle was literally spinning around the room with excitement. Can I try that? I want to wear that. On Sunday they both put on some new winter outfits. Don't they look sharp? They just love to dress up and it's so much fun to watch their excitement.

It's also interesting to see their lack of concern about old clothes being given away or even thrown out. They really don't care. As excited as they are to see new clothes, they just dont' get attached to much and so can easily watch us get rid of the old.

They do look sharp! Interesting that they don't mind getting rid of clothes... our Hope hates to see anything leave her room:) I have to be kind of sneaky and just hope she doesn't notice!

I loved reading about the kids' excitement at Thanksgiving. We have some exciting firsts coming up in the next couple of months. So fun!
