We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Brad had the entire week off, which is a first! We spent most of the week relaxing - lots of sleeping in and napping. We also took a day to go to Calhoun and visit my Aunt Pearl and cousin Nancy. It was their first time meeting Abby! Pearl is my Dad's oldest sister. It was a nice visit! After that, we drove just down the road to Brad's Dad's house to celebrate his 60th birthday. It was a great trip and great food!

For Thanksgiving day we spent the day in Thomson with my Aunt Claire and her family. It was wonderful! The girls loved spending the day in the country and seeing lots of cows! It's so important to me to instill in my girls a sense of family during the holidays. I wish more than anything that they could have the same memories of the holidays that I have - spent with extended family. I think that's the most important thing in the world. There's nothing more important than family.

A few days later we went to Brad's mom's house for Thanksgiving dinner with their side of the family. We all had a great time and got to spend some great quality time together. It was a nice week!

Relaxing weekend

It has been SUCH a nice weekend! It is the first in the last several months that has had nothing at all planned. There's something to be said for 2 whole days of freedom. We have enjoyed every second so far!

Yesterday was nice. The girls slept in for the first time since daylight savings time screwed us up. We spent a lazy morning at the Dekalb Farmers Market and followed that up with some samosas for lunch and a long family nap. It was divine! We spent the evening snuggling and playing with the girls.

Today has found us running a few errands. Brad is getting a MUCH needed haircut (against his will) and I will be doing the weekly meal planning and grocery run. Not my favorite thing to do, but it will be a nice quick trip as Brad will have the girls with him at home. Hoping for another nap this afternoon. :) Can't beat it!

Bad Mommy-blogger!

I can hardly believe that it's been nearly 6 months since I last posted. It's ridiculous. We've been so busy living life that I've scarcely found time to write about it. I DO keep daily journals for each of the girls, but I had such high hopes of keeping up with regular blog entries as well. Oh well. That's the past, I suppose!

I've just discovered the blogger app on my iPhone, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to post a little more conveniently. I take nearly all of my photos these days (and there are usually 5 or more. a day!) on my phone so it eliminated a few steps to post from my phone as well.

Here are a few photos of the last few days!
