Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm a little late on that, I know.  I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.  Nothing is better to me than spending time with people you love and delicious food.  We had a wonderful and really relaxing day.  I did all of my cooking the day before so I could relax.  Thanksgiving morning, Shawn got up to play football with his friends and the kids and I laid in bed and watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  We spent the entire parade waiting for the Buzz Lightyear balloon which turned out to be about one of the last things in the parade.  Ben was so excited to see it.  Then we went to Terry's (a family friend who is pretty much family) and had a wonderful lunch/dinner with Shawn and Terry's families.  It was wonderful.  Friday night, we had dinner at Terry's house again.  Yummy leftovers!

This coming week I have a few goals...  Get my car tagged, come up with ideas for our advent calendar, try at least one new recipe, work on some more sewing for Christmas, start Christmas crafts with the kids, start decorating for Christmas, and actually make progress on reading my book.  I'm reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and desperately trying to get through the first part of it.  I heard that the first part is hard to get through and then it gets good and I won't be able to put it down.  I'm on page 75 and am waiting to get to the part where it's actually easy to keep reading.

I also need to post a few things like our Thanksgiving crafts (I know it's late).  Maybe I'll get that done today.  I'm actually hoping that the weather is nice enough we can make it to the park sometime before the Chiefs game and then afterwards, we can go for a nice walk and get some hot coffee or tea.  I really enjoy our walks  on Mass and I can't wait now that the Christmas lights should be on.  Ben will love it tonight.

Little Miss Sydney has been doing the army crawl everywhere for the past couple of months.  Occasionally she'll actually get up on all fours, but I think she thinks it's faster just to army crawl it.  Lately over the past couple of weeks, she been pulling herself up on everything.  It's great and I'm excited, but she falls a lot which means lots of bruises.  Seriously, she has about 3 or 4 bruises on her face and I'm wanting to take pictures for Christmas.  Hello Photoshop!  Haha.

Really, we're going to wait to do pictures until we get our tree unless, we come up with something better in the mean time.  Ugh!  That's another thing I have to work on.  I have to get the Christmas cards ready so that all I have to do is slide the pictures in, when we get them, and they're ready to go.  So much to do... so little time.
