I had a busy but relaxing weekend for the most part. The kids started arriving on Wednesday. There was a houseful. They started leaving on Thursday evening but the last to leave was Kayla on Friday early evening.
This message came to me from Buck before anyone even got here…
“What’s better than having the family together for Thanksgiving?! Fixing your sons jeans of course!!! See you soon!”
Oh that boy of mine! yes..I did get them patched.
I had hoped to get a picture of me with the grandkids but it didn’t happen. Instead I have a few snapshots.
This is Georgia and Lucy.
Kelli and Georgia.
Kalissa playing with Lucy.
Kayla braiding Lucy’s hair while Buck is holding her.
Scotty showing me his shark….I love this picture!!
We aren’t a football watching family on Thanksgiving…more of sleeping family but rightly so.
Kalissa is a nurse and worked the overnight on Wednesday so was needing sleep on Thanksgiving.
Carver was almost sleeping then saw me the camera and “woke”.
Kelli had worked the overnight Tuesday night and then “short slept” on Wednesday so she was behind on sleep and slept.
Jason has been working at getting the crops in and hasn’t been sleeping much at all. One night earlier in the week he slept for ONE hour…that’s it! He’s sleeping here with Georgia.
But someone didn’t sleep…Gannon!! He was way to busy working on his latest milestone. He can pull himself up. He’s just thrilled that he an too.
It was a good Thanksgiving. I was worried it would be hard but the kids and I did okay. The hardest was that Lora couldn’t come. Lora works in big box retail in management. She can’t be here for Thanksgiving. Lora video messaged the kids and it ended with Lucy and Lora both crying-and me all teary eyed. I wish when people were running out to get their big deals that they would realize what and who is behind that “deal”.
In other news…My Christmas cactus is starting to bloom. I need to repot it and plan to after Christmas. This is my third year with this one. It is always loaded with blooms.
…and I’ll close with this picture of me and Karl…
Kayla bought me a cheese advent calendar. Every day I open it, I get cheese!! I’m sharing with Karl.
That was Thanksgiving 2019 here. It’s just a casual day with the kids and grandkids. We couldn’t help but think to next year. It was crazy with the five kids here. I have no idea what it will be like with Georgie and Gannon on the move and two more babies here!! It’s guaranteed to be fun…and LOUD.
