Mom was excited to try my French toast – on Apple Scrapple bread!! It was heavenly.
Freshly milled 100% whole wheat with apples embedded throughout and a touch of sweetness on top
A bit of buttah and let ‘er go
I put a banana in alongside and some peanut butter underneath
Maze got lots of breakfast attention!
Then we all went outside for the Hillsborough Christmas Parade. My parents have been hosting a get together on their steps for years and years.
I saw my old middle school band, my high school, dance school and all of Hillsborough’s traditions
Maze had a good time being passed through the church ladies
“Mom do I really have to wear this silly hat!?” (It was used to be mine!)
It was actually a really warm day and we were all shedding layers.
He got a football from a float and some candy
“Can I pul-lease eat the candy cane!?”
I ate one of these also tossed from a float!
THERE HE IS!!! Sannnnnnnnnnta!
M was tuckered out and took a long nap after the parade, so mom told the three of us kids to walk downtown for a fast lunch while she babysat
We went to Gulf Rim (my fav) and Larbs and I shared a salad + fish tacos
All put together:
When we got back, M was ready to nurse. My friend Becca came over with her little girl and we talked for a long time while Uncle Matt played with M. And then he fell asleep in my arms – such a sweet afternoon.
Late in the afternoon, the Monson family came over to visit! Matt’s uncle, aunt and cousins were excited to meet M.
Do they look alike!?
Mom, dad and I had a neighborhood popcorn party to attend in the evening.
You know you’re in North Carolina when..
But we all know which is the better team : )
I had the honor of meeting noted author Lee Smith! She lives down the street down from my parents and was so lovely to meet. I’ve read a few of her books – she writes wonderful Southern historical novels.
My mom’s hair twin!
Maze slept in his carrier for a good 1.5 hours and then I fed him up in a bedroom before we headed home.
I had filled up on popcorn, trail mix and a cookie and wasn’t too hungry for dinner, but I felt I should have something healthy before bed, so I made a smashed avocado and smoked gouda sandwich with a clementine on the side.
It was a nice “dessert” : )
AND THEN MAZEN SLEPT FOR 7 HOURS STRAIGHT!! He must really love it here.
