Kayla and Morgan arrived yesterday aroung 8:15 just in time to pick out a box of cereal. They played with the Christmas decorations, colored with Nana and Papa, played with the race track Papa set up and played outside. It was 64 yesterday and the girls enjoyed outside time.
This year we chose three names from the Angel tree at church. They are children of incarcerated parents. I shopped and then Kayla helped me wrap and proudly carry them into church this week. We also contributed a sack of food for FISH.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. The only thing that we were missing was Jennifer, Matt, Emma and Logan which was very hard for me. The Holidays are the hardest. We had 2 turkeys one deep fried by Jeremy and then the traditional turkey and stuffing. So we had a total of 6 adults, 2 kids, 4 dogs and 2 cats and then of course a stinking mouse that I saw on Thanksgiving morning. (we caught it in the mouse trap the next morning).
