Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving weekend - full of family and friends, good food and four days with no work and time to do whatever we wanted. We had a nice weekend that started out with Dave getting up early on Thanksgiving to go target shooting with my dad, brother-in-law and the guys in his family. Dave had a good time and said he did a really good job at it. He had fun and I spent the morning with the boys. When Dave got back we went to the movies with my parents and saw the Bee Movie. I thought it was pretty cute and it kept the boys attention the whole time. While everyone else in the family ate with their in-laws on Thanksgiving day Dave and I stayed home with the boys and I made chicken in a biscuit for dinner. Yumm.

Dave's friend Matt arrived Friday afternoon and the two of them had fun catching up and then we all headed to my Mom's for our family's dinner. Trevor had fun counting all of the grandmas he had there (one grandma, two greats and one great-great) and playing with his cousins. We attempted to take a family picture, but the boys would not cooperate too well so maybe we won't be sending a Christmas card out this year.... We also celebrated my Grandma Dee's 75th birthday on Friday.

The rest of the holiday weekend was relaxing and enjoyable and we are all looking forward to Christmas now and the arrival of Logan (akaLittle Champ) in January.

Our Little Turkeys

Trevor made this hat at preschool today. The kids all looked so cute when they came out of class with these on. They started running around the yard, clucking like chickens. One more day until our holiday weekend starts. We hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Another Day at the Park

No need to wait for spring or summer to have a day in the sun, it's better to have a day outdoors in November when the weather is perfect, not too hot, not too cold. Trevor Colin and I headed off to the park today and met up with my sister and her kids, my mom and dad, Grandma Dee and Dave. We all enjoyed lunch on the picnic tables and then the kids ran off to play (Dave running with them since he was needed to push the swings) and my sister and Grandma and I sat and chatted. Colin liked playing in the sand with Carson and Riley and then Carson took him on the BIG slides. Trevor and Macy (they are just 2 months apart) stuck together like glue the whole time. Those two play so well together they must have been the best of friends before they were born, they get along so well. It was such a great afternoon and a good way to start off the Thanksgiving week. My boys are sleeping now so I have a quiet house...but it's a little messy too so I better take advantage of cleaning while I can.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Our Weekend and Baby's Birthday

Saturday was such a beautiful day. We were standing in the grass at the park getting ready to launch Trevor's kite for the first time and I turned to Dave and said, "Is it really November?" With the sun shining and the air warm, a good breeze blowing, I held the kite and Dave took off running. When I let it go, the boys were all smiles (Dave included) as the kite, that looked like a dragon with his wings spread, rose into the blue sky. Trevor helped Dave hold the string and a few onlookers stopped to watch our colorful kite soaring through the air. After the kite flying we played a bit (Trevor climbing the "castle" and Colin wanting to just stay on the swing the whole time) and then we came home for lunch and naps. It was such a fun day and just perfect.

I had a doctor's appointment today and all is well. As I was getting ready to leave I asked the doctor if I could schedule my C-section so we looked at a calendar, called the hospital and got everything scheduled. I'll have the baby on January 18th! First my doctor suggested the 15th but I told him no since it was my birthday, even though Dave thinks I should have him on my birthday since Colin was born on his - but I have a choice here and Colin just happened to come on that day. I wanted to have the surgery on a Friday so I could be in the hospital for the weekend and Dave could take a whole week off from work and be home with me. I just wanted to plan it out that way I wanted since both Trevor and Colin were surprises and Dave always had to go back to work a few days after I got home from the hospital. It's nice to have it planned, to know when he is going to come and to feel like I can actually be prepared this time.
