Monday Muddle

Hey guys,

How was your weekend?  How was Thanksgiving?  Did you list all the things you have to be thankful for?  Isn't it amazing once you start making a list?  It truly is overwhelming how blessed we are.

This photo was taken a few weeks ago when I cooked a turkey at home.  It just cracked both my husband and myself that she wanted the whole turkey leg.  Didn't do too bad either.  We postponed Thanksgiving at our house this week.  My husband had to work both the night before and of Thanksgiving.  So we waited one more day and went down to my sister-in-law's on Friday.  Wow!  There was a lot of food.We took our famous Pumpkin Pie Cake and I was secretly hoping no one would like it.  I just wanted to bring home leftovers.  But no such luck.

The kids ran around with their aunts and uncles and the dogs for two days while my husband and I enjoyed a chance to sit down for longer than two seconds.  Back home for Sunday since my husband was preaching and yesterday seemed to fly by.  After nap, the kids and the hubby put up Christmas lights out front.  I stayed safely inside.  

Our week is starting out with a bang of getting back into routine.  School's back in and I actually really miss having the kids at home.  Gymnastics and dance recitals this afternoon.  Small group tonight.  And birthday and Christmas planning the rest of the week.  December is promising to be full.

What about you?  How was your week?  Any snow where you are?
