As yesterday was Thanksgiving, like most people, I took a moment here and there to reflect on some of the things that I am thankful for. Obviously there is so much that there's no way I could list them all. So, I'm not going to list any. Especially since I'm sure you could guess a bunch of them on your own. Instead, I'm just going to recap yesterday and today for you.
Even though it snowed a good portion of the night on Wednesday, we did make it to Thanksgiving dinner, and we had a lovely time. The boys were well behaved. Of course, they did hang out in the basement watching movies all day with the two other children who were there, but still, they didn't get "slap happy" (as in "gently" slapping not only each other, but the poor, sweet other boy who didn't want to play that "game") until it was close to leaving time. But the food was great, the company was fun, and the drive was exciting, to say the least.
On the way out the roads were a bit messy and slippery, and there was a portion of road with no mountain coverage, so the wind got a little intense. The ride home started out a little better as the roads had been plowed while we were eating, but about halfway home it started doing this weird raining, but not really raining thing. However, we made it safely there and safely home thanks to Josh's superb driving.
Of course, the only two pictures we have from that day have the other two kids in them and I'm not entirely comfortable posting a picture of someone else's kids without their knowledge or permission. So, I apologize for no actual Thanksgiving pictures this year.
I do, however, have pictures from today (which would be the ones running down the right side of this post). Today, like Josh said after dinner, was a good day. We didn't really do anything special, just relaxed around the house. It snowed all day, giving us another 4 inches on top of the 4 we got Wednesday night, which is now sitting on top of all we had before. Yay! So, after the boys' naps we bundled up and went out to play in the snow again. And after that we made a fire in the fireplace and had leftover turkey and stuff for dinner. A pretty good first half of our holiday weekend.
