Bring It On!

Traditionally, today has been one of my favorite days of the year. Why? Because I'm an anticipation/expectation person - and with tomorrow being the official launch off of my favorite season of the year. Yippeeeeeee!

Michele and the kiddos are down already (they have "No school/conferences" the week of Thanksgiving) and today will be errand-running, pie-making and goodie-making.

In addition, we'll be visiting Amy!! (Please be in prayer for her mother-in-law - she is in ICU and could pass away at any time - her heart is prepared, but they are hopeful her journey to Heaven does not coincide with Amy's daughter, Christina's birthday (on Thanksgiving this year) - as Christina would probably internalize it and struggle....)(Amy looked so good today - and was in great spirits - the pain she is still experiencing can largely be attributed to the 12mm she gained in height from the surgery - and how much that affects the nerves in her back and the muscles- understandably).

Tomorrow we head out to Mom and Dad's - after doing the Macy's Day Bingo game at home. We'll have a grand feast out there and play our every-other-year "Arena Football" - literally taking place in my mom's sand outdoor riding arena. =) If it rains so hard the rest of the family chooses not to play, Brayden will be crushed......

Here is a picture that Mikayla drew for school of what she considers "November":

Around 6:30 tomorrow night- John and Travis will take off for the Woodburn Outlet Malls, while we plan our strategies with Mom for Black Friday.....perhaps a little watching of "Four Christmases" will take place and then if we're smart we'll get to bed super early, but 3am will come early no matter when we go to bed, let's face it.....

All's to say - I CAN'T WAIT!!!

don't forget to pack the pumpkin pie in your car for those 6:30am needed sugar rushes :-). You guys are crazy and fantastic!

Oh, don't you worry, the cooler is already set out with some Chocolate covered Craisins hidden it for when I have a hankering for something a little tart (those are super good, btw!) Have a super Thanksgiving, Colie!
