Well well....what to write about?

I hope all of your Thanksgivings were wonderful. We had a rather stress filled day. It started when my dad was talking to my brother who is serving in Iraq. They were chatting via instant messenger and Tigger told him that he was being sent into Baghdad for a few weeks. If you'll remember this was the day that so many people died in that city. So that was very rough for us emotionally. Then Sydney proceeded to spray lens cleaner all over my father's new laptop computer. Major stress....thankfully, it was easily taken care of. Not to mention the fact that Grandpa wasn't there. It was odd, I expected to walk into the other room and see him watching football with my dad, or walk into the kitchen and see him poring over the turkey. Everything just seemed slightly off. I've spent nearly every Thanksgiving since I can remember with him. It certainly made the day a little tougher. That night we watched the video from his funeral. It brought many a tear and a few smiles. Man, I miss him!

On to happier things, this weekend is fun filled. My cousin Holly is flying in and we are going to get my mom and dad's big tree and put it up. Molli's birthday is this weekend as well which just gives us an excuse to eat cake :) Then on Sunday we are dedicating Thomas at church. I'm so excited about this, he'll be so surrounded by family who love him and will help him grow in the Lord. Plus my Aunt Carol is letting me use the christening gown that my Uncle Tommy wore...another Thomas Michael. That is so special to me. I'll be sure to take pictures of that great day.

Alright well Laundry beckons...till then.....

I haven't written anything in so long....guess it's time!

We're doing well in Battle Creek. Matt just finished a week of vacation where we just bummed around, did some Christmas shopping, got some projects done around the house and just generally enjoyed him being home. We're gearing up for Thanksgiving which promises to be a good time. The kids are so glad to have a few days away from school.

So other random things...

This morning as I am sitting here typing I hear yelling from upstairs. I knew Sydney was playing up there and so just kept an open ear. Soon I hear the yell get more frantic but I can't make out what she is saying. So I head upstairs to find her dangling from the bunkbeds, in clear distress. However, what she was yelling made me laugh so hard I had to catch my breath before rescuing her. "Ayudeme! Ayudeme!" For those of you non Dora/Diego watchers that means Help me in Spanish! I was laughing so hard. Thomas is getting bigger by the minute I think. He's gotten so chubby and so I've decided that I don't need to go to the gym as I can just so several reps of lifting him and be good to go. He's entered the cooing/smiling phase which I just love. We've been trying and trying to get a pic of him smiling but with our digital camera but by the time it takes the shot, he's done. But Matt finally got this one last night.....

Anyway, other than "doing life", we're god....happy Thanksgiving you all!!
