And Yet More...Thankful

Number 4 is in the bath. She told us that she "throwed" her Thanksgiving dinner in the middle of the night and needed to be cleaned up just a tad. She didn't bother to wake us up, she just went back to sleep.

Number 2 and 3 are playing War. Which is better than fighting.

Number 1 is probably in her bed reading.

Number 5 is with Ben. They are playing the piano together. Well, Caleb is just listening to Ben play.

I am grateful for all of the above.

Thanksgiving was nice. And I am thankful it is over, because 5 smallish kids in a house with limited play space, not enough iphones to play on (good grief, they were glued to their aunt's phone) and cold weather is a mixture for some stress. Actually they were quite good.

My girls requested the turkey drumsticks. I like that because they actually eat them and it's hilarious to see them eating such large drumsticks. And often they don't eat anything. Unfortunately this year the younger cousins caught onto the gig and cried because there were not enough drumsticks to go around. So I had to make a rule that next year no one gets drumsticks. Bummer.

Bring on the holidays. Make them fun and mellow.

  1. That is a bummer. I always loved the drumsticks too. Oh the vicissitudes of equality.
