Decorating for Christmas
Thanksgiving at Grampy and Buba's House
Aunty Reba and the kids

An Eventful Weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Our Thanksgiving was very nice. Gramp and Buba hosted Thanksgiving and it was super fun. Of course we over ate and ended up taking a handful of tums later that evening, but it was worth it!

The kids helped us decorate the house this weekend and I have to say, it wasn't a chore this year...it was actually fun. Every single decoration I pulled out was like a new present to the kids. Their excitement is sooo contagious. We decorated our stairs with garland, lights and Christmas stockings and the kids sat on the steps for a good hour, looking at all of the decorations and talking about Santa. I am trying so hard to explain to them that Christmas is about giving!!! This is going to be tough. All they talk about is the spider man car or scooter they want from Santa. We have a job ahead of us!!!

What would a holiday be without a trip to the doctor's office??? This morning I was walking into Ben and Jake's bedroom when Ben and I bumped into each other and I poked him in the eye. At first I thought, this isn't a big deal. But then, three hours later he was still in pain and unable to open his eye. Sooo off to the doctor's office we go... After some eye drops and a sturdy bandage placed on the eye, we are feeling much better. I know it was an accident but I just feel awful!!!!!!!!! Poor guy is such a trooper.

Again, Happy Holidays! :)

I am glad to hear Ben is feeling better. With 4 little ones...a trip to the doctors is a common theme :) Glad to hear you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I love the photo of the kids on the stairs, and the one of you and Lana --adorable! And poor Ben, he looks no worse for the wear though :)
