Black Friday - Christmastime is Here!

As has become tradition here in the Peterson house, we were up early on Black Friday this year to hit the stores and take advantage of some sales.  However, since Alice was feeling a little under the weather, in an unprecedented first, we actually left our house for the stores after the sun was up!

We returned home after shopping for a nap, then it was time to decorate the tree!:

As always, we take breaks and make time for snuggles whenever we can!
Our tree looked great when we were done, and it became apparent - Christmastime is here!  Let the festivities begin!

Here are some more photos from our Black Friday adventures!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  We spent the day down at Lisa's Aunt Robin and Uncle Dave's house in Rehoboth, Massachusetts.  We had a nice relaxing day and lots of yummy food!

Here are the rest of the photos from our Thanksgiving Day.

A Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood

We have been overwhelmed by how welcoming our neighbors have been since we moved to Salem this past summer.  To thank everyone, and to celebrate making it through our first October in Salem, we hosted a party for the neighborhood during the first week of November.

Here is Alice, working on some cookies for the party:

All dressed up and waiting for our neighbors to arrive!:

The neighborhood is full of kids for Alice to play with, and they had fun playing in the craft room!
Our next-door neighbor, Jodi, and her baby daughter, Mia:
The house was full of great company, great food, and everyone had fun watching the Patriots game as well:
Alice enjoyed tagging along with our 11 year old neighbor, Corin:
It was great to relax and spend time getting to know everyone.  We look forward to the warm weather ruturning so we can get together with everyone outside for a backyard BBQ!
Here are the rest of the photos from the neighborhood party.
