Our Thanksgiving Day
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. This Thanksgiving was a bit different for us. My husband was not here. He went to NY for a surprise gift for his Dad, and was he surprised. At first the kids were sad, but we had a lot of fun all by ourselves. We watched movies, ate popcorn, painted our 25 days of Christmas ornaments, and my mom was here for dinner. It was a nice and relaxing day. Plus since my hubby wasn't here I didn't cook the huge turkey, just a turkey breast in the crock pot, plus everyone elses favorites. Craig will be home this afternoon, and we will resume lessons Monday. From now until after Christmas, as with all families, our social calendar is just overflowing. As much as I love this time of year, it seems we are distracted all the time by the fun, to concentrate on school work. Thank goodness we put in extra time over the Summer. It pays off this time of year. Oh, and no I am not a Black Friday shopper. Matter of fact I have completed my shopping, minus a couple of donation things, and stocking stuffers. Everything should be delivered today. Now I just have to wrap, yuck!
