It's been an okay weekend. I have a sinus infection that is hanging on and making me feel a little blah. In spite of that...I am thankful and I am blessed for my beloved family. I'm also incredibly thankful for friends who invite BOTH the older boys over to spend the night even though technically, her son is Graham's friend. It came at a great time, because combined with that and my four hours of sleep the night before, I was exhausted. (And yes, Breaking Dawn Part I was totally worth the four hours of sleep I got. It was ahmaaaazing!)
But guess what I did??? I went to bed at nine and read my book on the Kindle app I have on my tablet...and I didn't even have to turn the bedside lamp on! I know, right? I love reading books on that thing...so much so that I finished my first book and bought my second one this morning before church. :) LURVE!!! (Yes, I still love and occasionally talk like Madea.)
The boys and I went to my dad's house to help him and my sister finish putting up his Christmas lights. I was so sad to discover that we won't be seeing him for Thanksgiving this year. :( Him and my stepmom decided to go to Branson to see all the Christmas lights, and they'll be leaving after lunch that day. It won't quite be the same without the tradition of eating with him that Friday after Thanksgiving and going to see the Zoo Lights. I'm a sucker for some family traditions, for those of you who know me. I know I see him all the time, and for that, I am thankful. This year is, apparently, just a year for change.
Graham and Drew have a new business venture. They're making and selling survival bracelets. You can buy them for $10-12 and they're selling theirs for $5. So, if you would like one, you can let them know. Or me, since I'm the mom. :)
Well, that's about it for our weekend. I am so excited for our two day week this week! Jonah and Noah have their third grade Thanksgiving feast tomorrow. They will be going to school dressed as pilgrims. Jonah said, "Mom, there is no way I can wear a long sleeved shirt all day. Can I take something I can change into?" My words back to him: "Deal with it."
He is such a turkey.
Speaking of...can't wait to eat mine on Thursday! Woohoo! I hope you all have a wonderful Monday. Love to all!

On Sunday, it will be five weeks since my sister-in-love Tracy received her new heart. Just to keep things in perspective for you, and how ...
Most of you know by now, of my sister-in-love, Tracy. She is 42, almost 43, actually, and since she was about 20 or 21, she has had a ra...
I loved this morning's devotion from Jesus Calling, so I thought it would share it with you. All of the below is written by Sarah Young...
Jonah looked at me this afternoon and said, "I wish we had church tonight." Makes my heart all happy. Fact about me: I cry ofte...
