A Fun Long Weekend

Georgia came back from the YMCA with this picture which melted my heart. She can not wait for her sister to come home. She prays for her every night and likes to talk endlessly about all the things she is going to teach Nellie. She also likes to reiterate all the things Nellie CAN'T do because she is a baby still, like eat popcorn (Georgia thinks that being four is BIG).

Here are a few highlights of our Thanksgiving. It is hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner. I'm always ready for Christmas...I start decorating the week before Thanksgiving and Mike and I put up the tree the day after. The kids really "get into" decorating, especially the tree. I think I need to get over ever having a designer tree. I have been known, however, to spread out the ornaments that they put on the tree so it is a little more even looking (: We got a flocked tree this year which reminds us a little of Christmas up North. I would have to say they are a bit on the messy side, but the kids love it!

All the boys in my family LOVE football...Fred is enjoying the Cowboys game.
Grandma working hard in the kitchen...we had a much more relaxed Thanksgiving. It was quite small compared to other years and relatively quiet (well as quiet as you can get with my kiddos).

We took the kids to their favorite park.
This Donkey now knows us because we visit so often.
The famous "Wobbly Bridge" as Gigi calls it. Charley looks a little uncertain.
Having some fun doing some painting
Mornings started with some homemade Gluten free waffles. I've got a great recipe if anyone needs one!
