Did everyone have a  happy holiday? We certainly did. Busy, but GREAT! The weeks leading up to Thanksgiving I would ask Butter what he was thankful for. His response was always “Grandma”, which is really quite sweet. Today, now that all the craziness is over I thought I would ask him again. What are you thankful for? His response “my teeth.” this caught me off guard. “Your teeth?” Okay… I’ll play along…. “Why are you thankful for your teeth?”

“because I love my teeth” Well, I guess you can’t argue with that.

We went to my parent’s for Thanksgiving. It was a Thanksgiving/rehearsal dinner of sorts. I made my sister and new brother-in-law, who I adore, a cake.

We got a chance to meet my brother-in-laws family and they were all so kind and genuine. We spent a lot of time laughing. Peanut fell in love with the three dogs that were there and learned a new word. “Doggy”.

We spent the night at a hotel (practice for when we’re all in one room at Disney). My in-laws beat us there. We made a wrong turn on the way over. I could really really really use one of those tom toms. I can get lost in a parking lot. Ok, I have gotten lost in a parking lot. Anyway, the first thing we did was change into our bathing suits and the kids had a blast swimming in the pool.

The next day was the WEDDING!!! I got to sneak out for the morning to help get my sister ready, I am pretty sure that she was the calmest bride that there ever was. Even if you’re not nervous about the marriage, there is the whole wedding going off without a hitch (that you have been planning FOREVER) and the fact that everyone is staring at you to give you butterflys. Regardless. The weather was perfect, the bride was gorgeous and my boys were ADORABLE.

My sister had gotten her flowers from Lily of Angels on etsy. Can you believe these are silk?

Neither could my mother in law when I told her, and she had pinned a boutonniere onto Mr. Macaroni.

The venue was GORGEOUS! If you’re looking for a place to get married in Connecticut I highly recommend the Waterview. http://www.waterviewcatering.com/I wish I could take credit for the beautiful cake!

Unfortunately, running after two kids I didn’t get to try it. I am sure it was delicious. I wasn’t too disappointed after the previous days treats of pumpkin pie, pecan pie, pumpkin roll and german chocolate cake. I, dare I say it, was a little sweetsed out. I decided to send Mr. Macaroni home with his parent’s after the wedding and spend the night at my parent’s with the kids. They crashed early since we skipped naps and I was able to meet up with some old, but very dear friends, who I don’t see nearly enough. The next day ended the wedding festivities with a brunch at my parents.

Like I said it was a very busy weekend, but GREAT!
