Lily setting the table. It has become her "job" every year. She loves it. Those pink papers are "place cards" she made.
Lily making something---cracking eggs for sweet potato casserole I think.
Wyatt and Lily sitting down to a great dinner.
Visiting Santa at the mall. Wyatt wasn't going to see him, but decided at the last minute he would. He said it was because he knew I wanted a picture. I think he wanted to make sure and cover his bases.
Lily and Wyatt with their Nema and Papaw after church today.

We had a wonderful food, family, and shopping filled Thanksgiving holiday break. I guess the holiday rush is officially on now. We've decided this year to keep it simple and not stress out. Just enjoy what the season is really about.
Here's a book recommendation. Even though I haven't read it yet, my brother is reading it right now and he was giving us highlights and showing us certain parts. It looks very interesting and I can't wait to read it. It's called "The Year of Living Biblically".
Have a great week!!

TGIF!!!!! Here's why.....

* Dinner at our friends' tonight while 3 of her 4 kids and 1 of my 2 kids is at movie night at school. It will almost be like a grown up night with just 2 10 year old boys who we probably won't see the whole time! Looking forward to a glass of wine!
* Both kids having sleepovers---which always makes them SOOO happy!
* A relaxing weekend without too much planned.
* 2 days off, then 2 days of work and then 5 days off! Yay!
* Looking so forward to spending time with the fam for Thanksgiving! Lots of shopping and eating!

We had such a great Saturday. Lily and I had a "girls' day"---we met friends for lunch and then went to Beef and Boards theater to see "Alice in Wonderland". The girls loved it. They always have such great productions. While we were gone my wonderful hubby cleaned the entire house---I mean all 3 bathrooms, all laundry done and folded, vacuumed and even mowed the lawn! Yeah, I felt a little guilty that I was out having fun while he was slaving away---I said a "little"! HaHa! In the evening we took the kids bowling at Pinheads. We bowled a couple of games and had pizza. A good time was had by all. Of course, I came in last both games ;-( The best thing about it is that they can program the bumpers to go up and down so only certain players have them. Lily used them and I guess I should have, too!
I can't believe this is the last week before Thanksgiving!! Time just seems to go faster and faster!

Lily had a Brownie field trip to a florist headquarters Wednesday. It was cool to see the TONS of flowers, vases and other things they had to make up arrangements. The girls all got to make their own arrangement. They loved that. TGIF!!!!

This is a cool story. So inspirational and shows how far hard work and hustle can get you!! Wyatt is a friend of his brother---played football with him and goes to school and church with him. And, of course, we love UK and live in Noblesville. So, the connections are just kind of weird.

We had a great weekend. It was Grandparent's Day at the elementary school Friday so my mom came up for it. She left Saturday afternoon. We took the kids to see Bee Movie Saturday night. It was SOO cute. I recommend it. The kids loved it.
