Thanksgiving Post-Just Words

We had a great Thanksgiving week and were able to eat two meals, one with my parents the Saturday before Thanksgiving and then one with Justin's family on Thanksgiving Day.  Both were yummy meals.  Our moms make most of the same things but do it differently and I love both ways!  Brice and Anna were off of school the whole week but we filled the time easily and everyone was actually happy playing together!  Justin took Brice to Stone Mountain the day before and I made our traditional Advent rings with Anna.  Other than that we laid low and watched a lot of TV as well as played outside.  It was a gorgeous week here in Atlanta.  Now the house is decorated for Christmas, minus the tree and I am getting into hyper "let's get it all done" mode along with planning a birthday party!!

I just tried to upload pictures and it seems I have run out of storage space.  While I would love to figure out the solution right now, I just don't have the time! IF I find the time, I will upload and keep you all up to date with pictures.  Otherwise, you may just have to settle for words until the New Year.  You think I'm kidding?  I'm not.  I think between Facebook and Shutterfly (Kodak Gallery has now been bought by them) everyone will get to see our faces. :)

Thank you to all who follow this blog.  I promise to try and keep it up through the holidays so I myself can remember all the happenings around here.  Kyle is at such a fun age but he is also at a very busy age where almost nothing gets done if he is awake.  I have to keep up with him constantly and often ask the other kids to do it which I shouldn't.  Enjoy your families this Advent season and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!!

Playing with Pa is the most fun!

You Might Have a Boy... your house if you open your cabinets and see this. Yep, little man just put it there one day and closed the cabinet door.  I know this will not be the last time that a ball goes missing in our house and these days, you can bet there are some hidden cars around too.

We are in full holiday/birthday/waiting on a baby mode around here.  Justin's sister is 35 weeks pregnant and we are so happy for her!!  Can't wait for her little lady to arrive but we would all like it to be after Thanksgiving for the baby's sake.  She isn't due until December 17th so we shall see when she chooses to make her grand entrance.  This to me is like Christmas morning. EEEK!!  I can hardly contain myself.  I am off to Christmas of course! :)

15 For 15

Kyle turned 15 months old on Halloween.  I took him to the doctor that day for his check-up and he weighed 25 lbs. 7.5 oz (63%) and measured 33.5 inches (96%).  I seriously think it was the shortest visit ever and the only reason they do a fifteen month is to delay the vaccines three months longer.  He got his MMR and Chickenpox vaccines.  Owie and no fun.  He definitely showed some side effects and I felt so sorry for him.  This afternoon, after we got home from Publix, he was in the garage playing and the sun was setting just right behind him so I got the camera out.

15 Pictures for 15 Months! Yes, you have to endure fifteen snapshots of the same kid!

Is there something about a little boy in overalls, or what?
