Thanksgiving

I am sitting here with my newest neice all snuggled up in my arms and the older kids watching Max and Ruby in the other room. All is right with the world. I am so grateful for my healthy, beautiful children and my husband and the home we have made. I love being home with my kids to hear all the silly things they have to say and watch them discover new things every day. I do have this nagging little tick-tock, tick-tock feeling that I want another baby. I am trying to fight it but I just don't know that its going to go away.

We went to a Frosty and Friends event the other day and Santa was there. Kamryn was feeling kinda shy and didn't want to talk to him. Teagan, or course, jumped right up and asked for a Wii! Which we are not getting him -- he's only just turned 5 -- doesn't that seem too young?? Anyway, I was trying to prompt Kammy to ask Santa for something and mentioned that what she wanted had a mirror. And Santa guessed that she wanted a princess vanity! She (and I) were shocked -- the look on her face was PRICELESS!

Last night we went to have pictures taken with Santa at the mall. All the way there I kept trying to get Teagan to think about asking for something besides the Wii. So his next best answer to give to Santa's "what do you want" question was -- one of every boy toy! Yes, that is what he said! He is so "ilarious" -- that's what T and K have been saying lately -- everything is "ilarious"! So, I have been praying that he is not too disappointed Christmas morning when he does not get a Wii and does not have one of every other boy toy under the tree waiting for him.

Ah, kids! I am blessed.
