Today was a nice peaceful day at home. This was our last day of school until after Thanksgiving. We didn't take a Fall Break so I am ready. And I KNOW the kids are too. Here they are working hard on their Thanksgiving worksheets.

They have also been practicing their piano pieces for their recital and nursing home visit. I have decided I will play with Matt and Abbie (Tyler is already way beyond me) at their recital, so I have been practicing today too.

It was rainy and cool here today. I did get to take James out for a little while after lunch. He loves to be out and he just can't understand why the big kids can go out, but not him. He will just stand at the door and cry. This momma's heart can't hardly stand it, which is why he will be rotten by the time he is three. He is already half way there.

The kids have had supper and are watching a movie. We are waiting on Mark to get home. I can't believe it's Monday night and we don't have Scouts or Heritage Girls. It seems strange to not be running around this Monday night. Speaking of Heritage Girls. Abbie was in this past Sundays newspaper. They did an article on the Salvation Army Bellringers and spotlighted the girls. She was a celebrity for the day!

Tomorrow morning is cleaning day because company arrives Wednesday. And tomorrow afternoon James his two year checkup. I wish we could skip that and just pretend that it happened. I hate taking my children to get shots. HATE IT!

Got to go, the movie watching went to wrestling and James is crying.


  1. Tomorrow is Chickie Boy's last day of school then he is off for SIX WEEKS!!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!! Oh the things I have planned for us to all do while he is off! Enjoy your break!

  2. As my Grandpa is in a nursing home, I am sure that you and the kids playing the piano will be a tremendous blessing to the elderly folks. What a sweet thing to do!

    Enjoy your night!

  3. I wouldn't mind having the kids make me a little Thanksgiving card... hint, hint.

  4. Ugh, I hate taking the kids for shots too. It breaks my heart!

    Hope you have a lovely fall break and enjoy your "free" time together as a family.



  5. Eva Rose got FOUR shots today. She is currently moaning on the couch that her leg hurts :(

    This is the song on the video, it's by Derek Webb, one of our favorites:
