Hmmm.... does anyone read the blogs? Check out the pictures? I was kind of hoping that some people would post comments or feedback. Anyway, we're getting ready for Thanksgiving. We had our first Thanksgiving meal tonight. It was yummy. Our kids had fun playing with all the other kids that came. It's always fun to get together with all the other families from Ray's work. I have been running hither and yon... I didn't realize the magnitude of the planning that goes into making Thanksgiving happen. Nonetheless, the kids and I are looking forward to having grandparents visit us over this holiday week. We plan to keep busy with trips to the zoo, children's art museum, and the park. The day after Thanksgiving, we will break out the Christmas boxes and start decorating the house.... while listening to Christmas music! And we'll have a wrapping party and start sending the presents out. It feels so good to have the Christmas shopping done. Hey, don't hate me 'cuz I'm beautiful!!
Q. What do you call a genius at Alabama? A. Visitor.
Thank goodness Halloween is over! The kids wore their costumes a total of 4 times and got to go trick or treating twice. At least we only have Thanksgiving and Christmas to get through before the year is over. The kids had a lot of fun celebrating All Saints' Day along with Halloween. We carved a baby pumpkin (complete with bonnet and pacifier) as well as a pumpkin to bear the sacred heart image. Joella went as Saint Ursula and Colum went as Saint Tarsicius for an All Saints' Day party. We are making fast work of the candy in the house. I don't think we'll make it through the week before it's all gone!! We're all doing good here in Montgomery. Haven't had a chance to get out of Montgomery much because it seems like there's always something or other that we feel obligated to do during the weekends. Hopefully that will change once the holiday season is over. I can't believe it's already the holiday season. I asked Sears Portrait Studios when they would do their holiday pictures and they said they are already doing them. I said "But Halloween isn't over yet!" to which they replied, "We're trying to avoid the holiday rush." WOW. I'll be 33 years old this month. Monetary donations would be appreciated. J/K. I'll probably splurge by having Ray take me to the Cold Stone Creamery for my free ice cream. Where does the time go? Rays says I should make paragraphs but this is the way I think so we'll leave it just as it is.
