This week’ we are enjoying a bit of a more slow pace, spending time together, celebrating our dreams coming true, remind you of some big holiday deals still valid… Plus, our favorite Instagram moments, a recap of this week’s blog posts, including our Thanksgiving meal, lots of ways to use up those leftovers, a tailgating menu, and PALEO SAMOAS!
And of course the coupons… lots and lots of coupons!
Hello people! We’re winding down from another epic Thanksgiving here at Paleo Parents Central, which I’m sure most of our American readers can relate to. We hosted on Thursday and after-partied with friends (Sarah from PrimalBites and Nicole from Merit & Fork) in House of Gainz (our home gym) Friday. But now that one tradition is over, it’s time to celebrate another! Today, we went on our annual Christmas tree cutting!
We started this tradition way back in 2007 when Cole wasn’t yet 18 months and Finn was still in utero. Over time, we’ve come to look forward to this moment, always the weekend after Thanksgiving, as one of the highlights of the year. When we take our annual picture, it’s a chance to reflect on where we’ve been and where we’re going.
These early pictures are fascinating to us because they show a lifestyle we can barely remember anymore. Go check out that post to see the contrast between 2010 and 2011. The change is huge!
Last year, we went with Stacy’s sister and had another great time as a family. This year we found a new farm we just love in Middleburg, VA. We’re thrilled that this annual event also coincides with Shop Small Saturday, since supporting local farmers, local business, and local agriculture are all very important to us!
Look! We’re all smiling! (fart jokes are key with 3 boys)
ALSO, BIG NEWS TODAY (not small business, but WE are a small biz and it will make great holiday gifts)!
We’ve also received the news we’ve been waiting for: an Instagrammer just picked up a copy of Real Life Paleo from a Costco in Canada! How amazing is that? If you’re in Canada, we’d love to hear and see your reports. Buy a copy if you need one as well (or for that person in your life who NEEDS this lifestyle but always has an excuse)! The more that are purchased in stores, the more the stores are encouraged to spread the word with us!
Last but not least, if you haven’t ever listened to the Paleo View, this is the episode for you! The last ten minutes are the funniest we’ve ever done!
Instagram is where we post what happens in our daily lives, check it out!
We try to fill our lives with fun, positive thoughts and good food. Our three energetic boys help us to accomplish this. PS: Click on any photo to take you to the live version on Instagram!
