This week was a great week. Kevin was on vacation and the Christmas decorating came out full force. He dreams all year of these 2 months that he is able to decorate. It makes him happy and makes me crazy. I'm not a decorator for the seasons, I am happy with the tree being the only decor but not him. Years ago however we had to come to an understanding - He decorates outside NOT the inside and that works for us. The kids wait on him to decorate every year, its a favorite tradition for them.
I enjoyed him being off but like always when he is off I don't get much done. I had high hopes this week of getting some DIY projects started and completed while he was off but the weather was horrid and I couldn't move my table or hutch out so that didn't get touched. I couldn't find plastic rings anywhere for the roman shade I'm making so I had to order them from amazon which is putting a delay in that project too!
She loves it when Daddy is home for breakfast because he will fix her anything she wants, which is normally French Toast... At least she is finally eating from her Tonsillectomy. She lost 7 pounds in a week, so I hope she can gain some of that back over the holidays! Trust me she is so tiny she doesn't have the 7 pounds to lose!
The tree is finished. Kevin and I went yesterday and bought a new tree skirt!
This year was Zachary's turn to hang the star but bless his heart he is to short and needed some help!
Schooling this week was hit and miss because of the holidays and Kevin home. Here we are adding our 3 figures to our Mystery of History time line.
Kyle normally likes to help me cook, so he prepared the pumpkin pie this year.
Alexis is always the decorator. She made menus for everyone, table cards for everyone to know where they belonged and this awesome cute banner!
We were blessed to have 2 meals Thanksgiving Day. We always go to my grandmothers house for lunch and I always cook supper for our family. We actually even had some guests this year.
Our parents. My mom is the one in that horrible DUKE shirt (UNC fans here) and Kevin's parents are the other 2. My dad and brother wasn't with us this year because they where on a hunting trip.
In other news this week:
I had my first wreck!
Tuesday night I was leaving work early and was going to run into the grocery store for some things and as I was pulling in I t-boned a man that didn't stop! He pulled out in front of me as I was trying to turn into the store. It didn't do much to his car but it tore mine up pretty good. I was so upset and then so furious. I was glad we where both alright but still really angry over my car. The other car got the ticket and the next morning his insurance called me taking responsibility and I took it to get the quote and they set it all up. I will have a rental car when mine is getting repaired. The estimated damage is $3100.00 so it messed my front end up!
So if that wasn't exciting enough ~ We had family pictures took this week! I can't wait to share them here with you guys! They look great from the preview I was allowed to have!
I hope that you had a blessed Thanksgiving week!
