It has been a crazy busy week and a half over here. This is my first day to really be able to sit at the computer. It started the weekend before Thanksgiving. My best friend, Melinda, and her family came for the weekend. She has 7 kids too, so we definitely had a houseful. Just so you know how obsessed my friends and I are about Twilight. This trip was specifically planned so that Melinda could attend the movie on opening day with all of us LOL We were the thirty something moms in the theater sighing. We controlled the screaming, I mean, we ARE adults ; D I know the movie didn't get great reviews, but I really liked it. I wasn't expecting it to be as good as the book, so I didn't have that expectation. I saw it again Sunday night, yes that is twice, I NEVER see movies more than once at the theater. I enjoyed it even more the second time. I am trying to find time to see it a third time : O LOL
Anyway, my friends left Sunday and Tuesday my SIL and her 5 children arrived for Thanksgiving. My brother is a Major in the Air Force and is stationed in Africa until March. We had a lovely and lively Thanksgiving and were up at 4am on Black Friday to shop till we dropped lol Dh and I adore Black Friday, we get a lot of our Christmas shopping done and usually pick up a gift for us. Last year I got a new camera, this year was a Dirt Devil broom vac. I know, I am very easy to please lol Chad usually buys tools of some sort. I always go to Joanns too. Almost everything in the store is half off, plus you get an extra 20% off of your entire purchase. And the snuggle flannel is on sale for 1.50 a yard this year. It used to be a $1 a yard. I use this to make the children's Christmas pajamas.
The last few days we have been dealing with two sick little ones. Samuel and Ava have a wicked cough. And I have been suffering with a lovely bladder infection : ( Ugh! This is the second one in 3 months. Before this, I think I had 2 in my entire life. I don't know what the deal is, but it needs to stop!
Oh, and Chad and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary yesterday! He took off work and we went out for a Thai food buffet and then shopping at Old Navy. It was a nice quiet day. I cannot believe we have been married for 18 years, it only seems like maybe 10. I got married when I was only 19 and although they say teenage marriages never make it, we did! I have never regretted for one minute marrying Chad. He is a loving, caring , giving and funny man and a wonderful father. I pray we have 60+ years together.
I hope all of you are well and had a lovely Thanksgiving! I look forward to catching up on everyones' blogs : D
