Thanksgiving This & That

I'm trying to wrap up work stuff and all our last minute groceries and other items today to get ready for our little Thanksgiving getaway. I tell you, if you've never packed up for a little road trip with two kids - it's RIDICULOUS how much stuff we're bringing. I always try to bring the "comforts of home" when we spend the night elsewhere, and by the time you pack up bedding, nightlights, white noise machines, travel high chairs, etc. it gets to be a LOT! I've picked up a few fun little items to add to our festiveness too ... 

Loved these little cocktail napkins from Cost Plus ...

I also had to get these little "crackers" which are cute at each place setting but also add some fun conversation to the meal too (they each have a joke and fact inside!).

I also loved these little paper name cards! I usually make new ones every year but since we will be away I thought these flowers cute and would be easy to haul with us ...

And of course, I had to pick up matching Christmas PJs for the kids to open on Thanksgiving evening. These are from Target  and came with the softest fleece pants!! I want some in my size ...

I also picked up this sweet "Little People" light-up Nativity Scene for the kids to open. They love anything with little figures, and I figured at their age this was a safer Nativity Scene option than anything breakable.

Excited to spend some time with family starting tomorrow!!

  5. Those napkins are the best! I feel like I need to buy some for my mom. She loves fun napkins!

  6. Kids always get the cutest things ever. Love the nativity scene too. I wouldn't use those napkins I would just want to keep them.
