I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. I know it's been a while since I've posted. I do apologize. November is just a blur for me, so it is nice to slow down some this weekend.

Wednesday, after a miserable day at work with a sore throat that turned into fever and chills as I was driving to pick up the boys, I rushed to the Dr. to find out that I had strep. What a wonderful start to Thanksgiving weekend!! Luckily, after 24 hours on antibiotics, I was no longer contagious and feeling well enough to have everyone over for Thanksgiving. Mike did all the cooking, since no one wanted my germs anywhere near the food. Ok, so those of you who know me well are laughing right now because you know full well that Mike would have done all the cooking anyway :)

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner--my hubby sure knows how to make turkey and stuffing! My mom, stepdad, brother, Taylor, sister Leslie, brother-in-law Scott, and nephew Max all came over. My brother's girlfriend, brother and parents joined us for dessert. It was so nice to spend time with family and realize just how blessed we are--sickness and all. I am really mad at myself that we didn't take very many pictures, though! That seems to happen every year at Thanksgiving. Here's a few.
THe table--if you look closely, you can see the place cards the boys made.
The cousins:
Isn't Max a cutie patootie?!
Poor Brendan didn't know what to think. He's always been the baby of the family, and he didn't like sharing Mommy, Grandma or the attention with his cousin!

Yesterday, I got up and headed out the door at 6am (no 4am for me). I started at Micheals because I had to get my hands on a few Cricut cartridges--can't beat $29.99!! I got Cars, Alphalicious, and Doodlecharms. Merry Christmas to me! Then I headed to Fred Meyer, where I spent lots on Wii games, movies, toys and clothes. I got a lot and the crowds weren't too bad.

Last night we scrapped a little. It was fun, and I got a cute page done that I'll post in a separate artwork post. Today, it's on to decorating--my favorite part of this weekend. Then, at some point, I need to spend some time grading papers. Reality check. Stay tuned for an artwork post...
