That Time Of Year

Our Thanksgiving was great!  My boys, my mom and sister, Sean and I all went to Sean’s parents’ house for Thanksgiving dinner.  The kids all played in the basement with games and toys while the adults hung out while dinner was prepared.  We all had the traditional turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole and pie!  Everyone got along great and we all enjoyed our day.  I am so thrilled that my mom and his parents get along so well.  It makes for peaceful holidays and a happy future of joined families.

As I do every year, I avoided black Friday shopping.  In fact, I hid out at home all weekend long.  I don’t like shopping crowds, as they are generally cold and careless.  This year I really don’t have a lot of money to spend on gifts, so I told the kiddos I’ll just get the xbox live for the year.  Its $100 and makes the whole household happy, and they are excited at the idea.  Even though they are good with that, I was still worried about making the holiday special.  Last week I got a call from Cory’s school.  They asked me to make up a wish list for the kids and myself, and informed me there is a family that has volunteered to adopt us this holiday.  It will be kept 100% anonymous, so they will not know who we are and we will not know who they are.  I feel very fortunate to be receiving that blessing.  It will really make our holiday special, and I won’t have to worry quite so much about it.
