A Week of Thanksgiving...

I mentioned that I would be very busy last week... and I was!

Monday evening my mom and grandmother came and got the girls and I to go to stay with them until Thursday. Hubby had to work through Wednesday so they offered to come get me so we didn't have two vehicles when my sweetie finally got to come on Wednesday.

Nanny and I had a list of projects we needed to complete so we spent a bit of time working on those! I love doing projects with her.... she's so fun!!!! We finished the bedding for Baby M! It is perfect, I love it so much.... when I get a mattress in that bed I'll take a picture and post it. :)

We also finished L's stocking. I totally realize this is her second Christmas and she is just now getting a stocking, but it is getting harder and harder for me to get those stockings done because they require so much time! But her stocking turned out perfectly! I love it! Again, when I get some time to take pictures of my Christmas decorations, I'll post a picture of her stocking with those!

The girls and I had a great time celebrating Thanksgiving with my Nanny and Mom. And Thursday morning we headed to my dad's parents house to celebrate with that family. My grandparents live in this pretty small house (only one bathroom) and there were about 55 people there Thursday.... My Pawpaw celebrated his 90th birthday the Sunday before Thanksgiving so it was great that there were so many of us there to spend time together.

After eating some amazing food there we headed back home to spend Thanksgiving with my in-laws. By this time I was pretty miserable. I have been in some pain in my upper abdomen and back for a while but it keeps getting worse and Thursday I was miserable. I'm sure it is just part of being pregnant for the third time but the doctor today drew some blood for testing to make sure it isn't anything serious. Now I am just waiting to hear about that. We did have a good time with our family here... they are all so wonderful.

Friday my dad came and then my sister came that afternoon. We had a great time together.... Dad and I even hit up Wal-Mart Friday morning for some sales. :) We ate at our favorite restaurant Friday night - oh it was so good! And my dad even talked me into letting P sleep on the couch with him that night. She loved it and I'm pretty sure Dad didn't get much sleep :)

After Dad left Saturday morning my Mom and Nanny came and we had a shopping day! I didn't buy anything (shocker - I never buy anything) but I helped Nanny pick out some Christmas presents. We found the girls' Christmas dresses and I even picked out my gift from Nanny. Nanny and I share a major love of shoes. So I picked out some black boots for her to get me (she insisted on me picking out some shoes!). I absolutely love them and cannot wait to get them on my feet!!!!

We spent yesterday hanging around the house.... both of the girls have been sick at some point during the past few days so we didn't want to take them to church. And I needed some down time... I was hoping I would stop hurting (didn't happen).

It was such a wonderful week and I spent much time being thankful for all the wonderful things in my life. I loved spending so much time with the people I love! And just because you have made it to the end of this post I'll share a rare picture of my little family....
