random ramblings: we're still here!

It's been a busy, blog-less few days! My parents came into town and we had a wonderful (early) Thanksgiving with them. We had so much fun spending time with them and the kids were in Heaven.
We feasted on steaks on Saturday for lunch before the LSU game, then Sunday we had a big Thanksgiving. Beau smoked a turkey and since we were running the smoker, we filled it with some other meats for the meals for the rest of the week. Yum! It was all delicious.

Micah unfortunately had on his crabby pants for 2/3rds of the visit as he's getting 3 teeth at the same time. When he wasn't upset, throwing fits and not sleeping, he was adorable but his teeth put him in a bad mood. Especially since he didn't want to sleep well and he didn't want to eat well making him even crankier!

My mom and I got into the Christmas spirit working on a couple Christmas crafts. Okay really I showed her the ideas on pinterest, we went to Hobby Lobby got the supplies and she helped and did 90% of the crafting while I got to chat with her. :) Thanks Mom! I need to put a few finishing touches on them and then I'll blog them! They look so cute!

My parents left yesterday, then this morning after a great night rest from both kids and being awake for about two hours, Abby started running a fever and shivering. She felt pretty miserable until the medicine kicked in. Then she saw me cleaning, said she had rested enough and wanted a chore to do. How can I deny a sick girl her request? She sweetly folded laundry and wiped baseboards for me while I mopped and vacuumed. Then after Micah's naptime her fever was back and she was miserable the rest of the afternoon. So most of the day was spent watching movies and PBS but that's okay. Hopefully a restful day at home will help her recover quickly.

Hopefully back to regular blogging tomorrow. :)
