While this particular Thanksgiving was all cute and yummy and fun, these napkins have made me chuckle every time I've looked at them since I bought them weeks ago.
I managed to have the wherewithal to round up all my people for a picture before time to eat. I so very much dislike pictures of my myself, but part of this crew I am, so I'll take my spot. I'm always amazed at what joy it brings to me to see such big smiles on my kiddos. Gwen is a very entertaining picture snapper.
Since Rae ended up with a tiny boy all weekend (he has since moved to a long term placement, much to the heartbreak of his weekend big brother), I told her to send the kids out Thanksgiving Eve and allow her to get caught up a bit.
We made turkeys and pilgrim hats and rakes full of leaves.
Back to Thanksgiving. Uncle Jimi and his crew made it.. Jakester made a delicious brussel sprout roasted medley.
Mom has had a tough time coming back from those two big infections. I delivered her dinner to her and she ate up every bite and loved it. Last night was the most normal and interactive I have seen her in over a month. Thank you Lord for a little added Thanksgiving blessing.
We no longer have handful of babies to juggle so Michael, Gwen and I actually sat down and not only started, but finished a game. Woo, hoo. Good times all around!
We have some new fluff balls to replace our decimated coop. They are pretty friendly.
I was asked to donate a Cinnamon Roll Baking Class to our Parish Night Auction and will need to do that in the morning. Of course, this is also the week I volunteered to do coffee hour at church and the Gingerbread Party is next Saturday, so there is much to do today.
Usually, I have Advent Story boxes ready to go by Thanksgiving as I've wrapped them over Fall Break, but there was a delay in something I needed, so I wrapped two boxes full yesterday and hope to finish one this morning.
Christmas, here we come.
