Thanksgiving...


In July, we actually planned our Thanksgiving vacation in advance. We wanted to be sure to have good Thanksgiving dinner reservations and an appointment for Regan at the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique at Disney World. Unfortunately, at the last minute, we had to cancel our plans.

We closed on our new house on Monday. And, the painting and laying of hard wood floors began on Monday as well. We are used to juggling a flurry of events but that night our TV died and then, shortly thereafter, we found that the water heater in our "old" house also died. The following day, after coordinating the replacement of our water heater, we got a call about our new house. The big window had a leak and they couldn't continue to lay the hard wood floors until the leak was fixed and the sub flooring was dry. So, despite all of our efforts, we didn't leave Tuesday night as planned.

Instead, we went to work the following day and I headed for the grocery store at lunch. Yes, I actually cooked a Thanksgiving dinner on my own. After a couple hours of cooking, I now understand why we cook a Thanksgiving meal just once a year. It's a lot of work. But, I'm proud to say, I did it.

It's nice not rushing around. We are still having fun. So far, we have played football in the park and have also gone bowling. We may go roller skating tomorrow...

Aww, this is a really cute picture of you three. That turkey sure does look yummy! I'm sorry we couldn't go with you to play football. That would've been a lot of fun.
