What a great 4 days off. It was so wonderful to have all the kids home again and everyone hanging out. That is one of the many blessing of a big family, so much going on, so many people, so much love.
We spent Thanksgiving at my parents house where we got a baby fix. My sister in law and her niece both had babies last month, so much baby love going on.
Friday Mike and I took the younger set for a sunset walk at Tempe Town Lake, which was so nice. Fiona walked most of it herself, and can I say she is just so dang cute.
Saturday was clean the house day AND decorate! Since we will be out of town at Christmas, we didn't get a tree, but we did set out all the Santa ornaments (because I do love Santa). We hung up the lighted garland and hung some of the ornaments my parents have given us over the years and we hung up the bunting we made last year. And of course the stockings went up. That is probably my favorite part, seeing all of those stockings hanging up, just a lovely reminder of all the children we have. Sagan made the chalkboard "Christmas Wishes" and I LOVE it. We have been adding to it each day as something tickles our fancy. Lots and lots of hopes for snow and sled rides. It is suppose to be snowy in Show Low that time of year AND it did snow on St. Martin's day there... so who knows.
