Happy Thanksgiving!

I made my family sit on the sofa for a couple of quick photos before leaving for my mom’s house yesterday. Hey, a photo with all five of us in it!

The Balch Family

Plus one more sweet shot.

Eleanor, Calvin, and Nicole

Hope you’re having a lovely Thanksgiving weekend!

    Love all these pictures! It is so funny to see you in pants all the time after all these years of seeing you in a dress!

      I know! I still love a good dress (or skirt), but I don’t have many that both fit AND work for nursing right now.

      They were from Banana Republic, years ago. (My shoes are only now starting to fit again, post-baby.)

    Great photo! You’re very brave to put a newborn in such a cute outfit. My boy seems to know when he’s stylin’ and proceeds to spit up all over himself. Hope you have better luck with your little one :)

    Those shoes must be good! After Eleanor’s adorable fourth-wall stare, your shoes were the first thing I noticed! Sad to hear that they are going to be impossible to find.
