Thanksgiving







Wow it is December already. The holidays are approaching quickly. I am almost done shopping. That is the least of my problems. I am NOT looking forward to this holiday w/out the rest of my family. Thank Goodness it is only one year i hope.






Well i was undecided about Thanksgiving for a while. I wanted to go upstate to be w/family and have the kids meet their cousins. I also knew it was gonna be a lot of work and stress. I was right.



My Sis in law decided to help me out and drive w/me on Wed. Thank God for her. The ride wasn't bad b/c they fell asleep in the car....



The rest of the trip was a bit much. I felt like all i said was "Stop...be quiet.....clean up your mess....no jumping....no running..etc. etc. Aunt Priss was amazing to open her house to us.






Thanksgiving was fun though. We went to our cousin Neils house and the kids ran around w/the other kids and met their cousins and i really had a chance to relax a little and not worry too much about them.






Friday we took them to Mcdonalds to give them a chance to run and have fun. Then we went to dinner at a pizza restaurant a night w/the whole family again.



Sat we left around noon and the ride wasnt bad again. I was so happy to be heading home.



I really felt that i was on the kids alot and they were actually very good. I think it was just because they were in someone elses house. Family or not it is stressful for me for them to behave. I think i would do it again....






On Wed i have a christmas party at work. I am looking forward to it, to get out and have fun. I will show pixs when its over........
By the way the picture of S. is of her stuck in the play yard at McDonalds, and the other boy in the picture is their cousin Nicholas....
