It's Thanksgiving Week

It's Thanksgiving week and while I've been trying to relax and just enjoy being off it hasn't quite worked out that way.

Saturday we all had to get up early and take family Christmas pictures. We haven't taken Christmas pictures since R2 was 2. We had to be at the shoot site at 10:15AM. In the cold and drizzling rain. I kept thinking warm thoughts. Here's a sneak peek. 

After pictures, Hubs and I had the brilliant idea to go grab some lunch and then hit the grocery store for all of our meals for the week including Thanksgiving. I think everyone in the city was at the store. It was CRAZY! But we managed and got all the items we needs. Or so we thought. We got home and realized we had left a few minor things off the list but nothing that warranted going back to the store. Then Saturday evening we had a wedding to attend. It was a small intimate wedding and the bride was stunning and the groom was handsome even as he stood crying waiting for his bride to walk down the aisle. 

Sunday was a day full of church and laundry. I had so much laundry, I was almost afraid it would take me 3 days to do it all. But I washed, dried, and folded all 327 loads and then I left it all for the boys to put away. I also managed to get some reading in for school. And some where in there I think I heard, "MOM, I'm bored!" about a bazillion times so I let the boys invite friends over to spend the night.

Monday, we were up early again because I had a hair appointment and the boys had to be up at church to help decorate for Christmas. After my hair appointment I decided to tuff it out and make a run to HEB for the few things we forgot. I pulled in the parking and was immediately regretting my decision as I could not find a parking place. But I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in at how empty the store seemed and how easy it was to navigate the aisles. And when I went to check out there were no lines. I repeat NO LINES! What a change from two days ago. 

After that I came home and I am happy to report I did nothing for the remainder of the day. I sat around and watched the boys play and caught up on a few tv shows. 

And there is more excitement for tomorrow. We get to clean the house as we are having Thanksgiving at our house. But before the house cleaning commences, we are taking they boys to the movies to see Catching Fire. And then we are heading to Sonic because by that time it will be happy hour and the drinks are half price and tomorrow is also half price hamburgers. Who can pass that up? Not me, that's who. I'm all for anything that involves a Sonic drink. 

Wednesday will be a day of baking and preparing. And then it's Thursday, where sometime after 2pm I will be in a tryptophan induced sleep. 

So now that I've given you an itinerary of my week, I hope you each have a wonderful Thanksgiving with the ones you love.
