Wow–I have about 100 things to post. I’ve been thinking about doing it for days, but I’m a little overwhelmed! One step at a time Tara….
Let’s start with Thanksgiving. My parents were unexpectedly able to come out for Thanksgiving this year, and we were all so excited! The day before they got there Halle said, “Mom, aren’t you glad we don’t have to spend Thankgiving all alone?” And yes, I was indeed glad. And Rusty was glad because I had been threatening Mimi’s instead of a home cooked meal.
We did lots of fun things, but the highlight for the kids was that they got to stay in the hotel with Grandma and Grandpa. They swam, made candy turkey’s, watched movies, and ate delicious buffet breakfasts every morning. My kids LOVE LOVE hotels and there is nothing that makes them happier than a good bed bouncing. We also got to go visit Santa at Macy’s, see two reindeer, and go for a horse drawn carriage ride. We are so glad Grandma and Grandpa made the trip!
