Getting back into the swing of things.

We had a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving. I love getting together with family. I love playing games, talking, and reminiscing about old times. Getting together with family always reminds me of a "Full Moon Night". Growing up my mom would always comment that the crazy people come out on nights when the moon is full. Well, I think that holidays bring out the crazy in some realtives. I guess that makes the holidays memorable-family drama. ;) It really was a nice Thanksgiving and the food was amazing! I always say the best thing about Thanksgiving is the LEFTOVERS! I can't pick a favorite food they are all so good, but if I had to chose one....Hmmm....cornbread stuffing? sweet potato casserole? HOMEMADE rolls? pumpkin pie?, No Wait this year I would have to give the award to PECAN PIE!! Yum!
So, yes we had a great Thanksgiving. Great food, great company and a great times!

Tyler's 7th birthday was the day before Thanksgiving so he had his a couple of his cousins and a friend over. Sean took the boys to the dollar theatre to see Under Dog. The boys liked it, but Sean didn't, go figure? Tyler had a good day- Transformer cake, presents, and a movie.

Emily started getting sick which lead to her having breathing problems. On Sunday morning I was up until 4am talking with the doctor and giving her treatments. I really like the children's doctor, so I am grateful for that. Emily is doing much better, now.

Isabelle is (knock on wood & cross all fingers and toes) POTTY TRAINED! All it took was some mental abuse on my part and some Princess Ariel underoos. Not really abuse, but I just explained to Isabelle that when she goes to the bathroom in her diaper than Santa can't bring her big girl toys for Christmas. When she goes to the bathroom in her diaper that is being a baby. Now when she goes on the potty she smiles and asks in her cute, little voice, "Christmas is going to bring me big girl toys?" (She calls Santa Christmas.) She has done extremely well! I am so excited! Yay Isabelle!

Ethan has been trying to cut the naps out in his life so lately he is a tad on the cranky side. I can't believe he turns 1 year old tomorrow. This morning I told Tyler that tomorrow is Ethan's b-day and he will be one. Tyler was so very excited and said, " He will be able to think now!" I started laughing. I told Tyler that Ethan can think now! It was so funny! I guess the kids think that little babies walk around everywhere they go in a daze- duh! Oh how I love little children's conversations. :)
