Here are a few pictures on Thanksgiving. It was really warm here, so I told the boys they had to wear shorts that buttoned (as opposed to athletic shorts). Instead, they came down dressed like this. They looked so cute.
Braden was starving, and made it to the table first. He said our blessing and asked for the food to taste good. So cute.
I am making progress on the house, but I feel like I take one step forward and two steps back. I finally finished the tree only to find today that it is dead! We had the neighbor come water it while we were gone, but the water level hasn't gone down at all, and the needles are already starting to fall off. As you can see, it's not a small tree. It took forever just to hang all the lights. I called the nursery and they're more than happy to replace it, but that means I have to take everything down and do it all over!!!!! I think I'm leaving it for the weekend and then we'll have to deal with that next week. Perfect!!
This morning, I was trying to clean up the kitchen before I started on my to-do list. I started hearing water hit the floor. I looked down and there was water pouring out of the cabinets under the sink! I had to pull everything out of the cabinets and dry it all. Thankfully, I was able to call the builder (because, of course, Richard isn't here) and he came and fixed it.
The boys go back to school tomorrow, so I'm going to hit the road running! I don't start working until next week, so I need to enjoy my "freedom" this week!! I'm hoping to squeeze a pedicure in somewhere, but we'll have to see about that. I haven't been able to check on all your blogs, but hope to do that later tonight! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!
