Nice Weekend


Thanksgiving is over. The guests have gone home. The fall decorations are being taken down and tomorrow Christmas decorations will go up. Had a nice 4 day visit with William's daughter Lisa, her husband and their two sons. William, Lisa and her oldest son W went out at midnight Thanksgiving to shop. The rest of us were smart and stayed home. I went out once on black Friday years ago and will never do that again. I cooked and baked  a lot while they were here so we ate way too much. They took us out to Red Robin's last night and we had fun. Now the house is clean, laundry done, we and the animals are all settled down for a nice quiet evening. As much as we enjoyed the company it is nice to get back to our normal. Getting excited as I will be going to the mountains and spending Christmas with my daughters and their families. Have a few weeks before I go and lots of things to get done but can't wait! Hope there is snow while I am there so I can go sledding with the grands and hope to catch a basketball game of Q's. I also hope to be there a day or so before the school's Christmas break to pay a visit to FHS and a certain teacher and then go up the ladder. Hope each of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and have so many blessings you can't count them all.

Sounds like a wonderful time. I am thrilled that you will get to visit the mountains for Christmas; I know you and your children are so excited! We are under a flood watch here. Stay safe and dry this week.

We've already had two snow storms one just before Halloween and the other the day before Thanksgiving.......maybe you should pack up the homestead and move to Maine (it's cooler here in the summer, too)!

I like the way you say 'our normal'! Everyone's normal is different!! So much so that I'm sure no one really knows what normal is anyway!

I'm happy for you that you will be going to the mountains for Christmas. We won't be decorating this year. Too much mess and they get in the way of renovations!

Oh! I wonder if that teacher knows what's comin' after him? :) You Go, Grandma!

Hi sis, my goodness it's been a while since I've visited! Been so busy with Christmas preparations but I'm pretty much all done now so I have spare time again! It sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, good for you:-)

I can well imagine how thrilled you are to be going to spend Christmas with your daughters and families. I'll be going to Corey & Kristen's place and bringing mom with me so we're quite excited too:-) Love you sis. xoxo
