An overdue post about Thanksgiving (and other randomness).

Riverside Park

I really have been meaning to get on here for a week now to post about our Thanksgiving in NYC...but...exhaustion has overtaken me. These days I am lucky if I manage to shower much less compose eloquent blog posts (or emails, or etsy orders (which are starting to roll in for the holiday season) or cleaning or working, etc.). In addition to Miles' multiple awakenings throughout the night now (growth spurt??), my tired body has decided to give up on the idea of sleep all together, it seems. The last few nights I've had a horribly frustrating case of insomnia in between all of his feedings. Ugh...

Anyway, Thanksgiving! This year was my first first Thanksgiving in the city and I am so glad we decided to stay put. We hosted Dan's mom and a good friend and shared a lovely meal together (mostly made by Dan's mom). Miles wasn't quite sure what to make of our feast. He'll stick to milk, thankyouverymuch:
Staying in the city also gave us the opportunity to do something I've always wanted to do: go to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloon Inflation! It happens in our 'hood on the eve of Thanksgiving, and so despite the rainy, chilly weather, we decided to bundle Miles up and take him out for a real New York experience.
A very cool experience that I would highly recommend :)

P.S. new prints for sale in my etsy shop! (the original pieces were featured in the Art + Music show in Boston that I talked about here and here). More prints to come soon!

Haha! Love the picture of Miles after he's checked out the Thanksgiving dinner!
Sorry to hear that you're still not getting much sleep. That's a terrible thing. :(

The Macy's Parade must have been a real blast to see.
My sister in law is in Manhattan right now-lucky dog! I wish that I could have gone too. Perhaps someday...
