This week has been filled with sick. Sick mom and sick baby. The doctor says it is only a cold, but the cough is just yucky. Toni refuses to take her cough medicine that cost $23.00. Of course, I tasted it and it is awful, I can't really blame her. We stayed up all night on Saturday and slept on and off mostly yesterday while Daddy was out on Camp Robinson with a hunt. The bright part of my week was Friday night. Daddy took the baby down to his parents and spent the night and I went to crop night and my favorite scrapbooking store, "Just Scrap It" in Sherwood. I worked on Toni's 2 year old album. I am about 1/3 done with it. I made a sample card for Christmas for Daddy to see. He liked so I am going to run with it. This week is the week of Thanksgiving. I am thankful for a lot of people in my life. My children and husband, my mother, my sister (and her family). My husband's family and my extended family. My friends and the people we don't really think about that make our lives easier. The guy who puts out the produce at my grocery store, my mailman, our trash man are just examples. This Thanksgiving, remember them, the lady who cuts your hair or the neighbor who watches your house while you are gone. Give them a verbal thank you this week.

I am so excited that my daughter Casey is coming home. We are going to the NPHS play tonight, Snow White. I went shopping and bought the 25lb turkey and 9lb brisket for Thanksgiving. We are having 23 for dinner. :) I am so happy my whole family will be here. I also found out my brother-in-law's retirement party is going to be Dec 18th in Georgia. We are going to celebrate Christmas with my sister then as well.

Toni's trip to the doctor's office went well for about 3 seconds. The minute we walked into the exam room, she started saying "home mommy now!". This went on through the nurse's exam of height, weight and head circumfrance. The doctor came in and she cried for the first 5 minutes of the 8 minute visit. Finally, the doctor talked about Elmo and won her over. She ended up getting 2 immunizations and a flu shot. The doctor gave her an Elmo sticker and she was ok. She loved the bandaids that were put on both her legs and wanted more when we got home. :)

Hey all, just wanted to say I hope this becomes a place where I can post the wild and wacky things our family is up to. With three kids (2 big and 1 little), there is always something going on. I hope it is a place where I can share crafts and recipes too. I look forward to it!
