My favoirte little "feasters"

So every year the kids school holds a Thanksgiving feast. Last year I was in the hospital recovering from a BIG surgery so I missed it. This year however, feeling GREAT and with two in school. This mommy got double the feast days. One right after the other. I LOVED it!

Who's this turkey??? Ha! Ha! This was a turkey that each child at Campbell's class got to take home....Ours is still on the mantel....we call him Fred.

Travis had his feast on Thursday and it was really exciting to see all the wee little ones.

I think he really was very thankful for his "something or other" free cupcake as someone in his class is sadly allergic to everything.

Campbell had her feast on Friday before the Thanksgiving break and the "big" kids got to sing and preform. It was so fun to see her sing...she loves too.

Campbell enjoying a very rare juice drink.

Enjoy every moment....that might be my new motto.

Sometimes my son wakes me in the midst of a dream.
Sometimes my son wakes me minutes after falling into that very state of sleep that you say "man, I just feel asleep."
Sometimes my son wakes me, rather gets me up out of bed before I can even get completely settled in.
Sometimes my son sleeps without waking me but more times than not I am awoken.

You see just about every night my son wakes me just to go pee pee.

While I am grateful for no wet sheets.....sometimes, No every time their is a bit of rough crying because he has been woken from a deep sleep. With an urgency....an urgency to pee. What he can't understand in his often hysterical screams is that I am there. Helping him. Tending to him. Awake...just for him.

Sometimes. No, every time. As tiresome as it has grown. I am grateful for that waking. You see sometimes it reminds me that he won't always need me. That there might be a time when I don't hear his screams. I won't be there to help him, tend to him, be awake just for him. On a night just like tonight, when sometimes, I can't fall right back to sleep. I think about those times and am happy to have been awoken.

Sometimes my son, no all the time, I love you.

So I found the cutest wristlet!

If you have to have one too please let me know. I'll share with you how you can get one too.
The personalization is always free and it comes in rust (shown), black and plum.

Can you say super cute plus it makes a great personalized gift
if you are starting to cross items off your list.

The Lion and the Mermaid!

So for Halloween this year the kids were The Lion and the Mermaid.

However, my little Lion did NOT like having whiskers on his face...it was a struggle to get them on as you can see from the markings of these imperfect whiskers.
He was heard roaring about these whiskers for at least three houses
into the trick or treating experience.

They had a lot of fun and we went to a lot more houses than I expected.
ESPECIALLY seeing that Campbell was just getting over being sick and Travis too.

Nana was in town and she loved seeing them all dressed up

and shouting "trick or treat", "happy Halloween" "spooky!" and "thank you" to people along our journey to candy filled pumpkins.

We hope your candy filled holiday was enjoyable and that you got the one treat you were hoping for. Ours was Lollipops....they were SO excited when they got a lollipop in their buckets.
Yep, pretty simple but apparently lollipops rule!!
