It's been a while since my last posting here in blogger. Sometimes it seems like there is not enough hours in the day to do what I want to do. Thanksgiving was great. There was 11 of us here. Dan's Mom was here for dinner along with friends of Emma and Dan's. They were a very nice couple. I enjoyed their company, very down to earth people they are. Dinner was great. We had turkey, stuffing, mashed potato's, gravy, fresh asparagus, sweet buttered corn, baked yams topped with toasted marshmallows, cranberry sauce. Didn't get to make my homemade coleslaw though. I will make it for christmas. Speaking of christmas, I am just about done with my shopping. Just have to get a few more things for Rebecca, another gift for my oldest Emma, and cologne for the hubby and I am done. Then I have to wrap it all, which is something I don't like to do. I could use gift bags, but that takes the fun out of unwrapping for the kids.
Well, the weather sure has changed. It is cold and windy here in PA. We have the heat on today. It is just Dan and I and the 4 kids here today. Jim is working and Emma is helping friends move today. Soon we will fix the kids lunch and the 2 youngest will be going down for their naps, yippeeeeeeeee, lol. Gotta love those afternoon naps they take. Yesterday I took the 3 oldest kids out with me to run some errands. I had to go to the bank and to Wawa. I decided to take them out to lunch. I asked, ok where do we wanna have lunch at? All 3 at the same time said Wendy's, lol, so that's where we went. So, it was a cheeseburger kids meal and 2 chicken nugget kids meals, all with chocolate milk, a bacon cheeseburger and small rootbeer for me and we sat down to eat. Afterwards we went to the park for a while. That trip was cut short because my grandson decided he was going to run through 4 inch deep puddle of water and was cold afterwards with wet sneakers, socks and pant legs. So we came home, he got changed and down for a nap he went.
My sister Lucy is in San Antonio Texas for a few weeks with her boyfriend Joe and his family. I can't wait for her to get back to virginia. I miss chatting with her on im.
So, what is on my agenda today? I am going to fix the kids lunch, then go downstairs to my room and watch Twilight's New Moon. A friend of Dan's got me a DVD of it. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Keep warm, safe and be happy.
