I've been missing in action for awhile. It's because one fateful day I decided that procreating would be a good idea.
Life's never been the same since.
That, and I picked up a good book at the library. I'm not good at multitasking.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and are just enjoying some quiet family time this weekend. Josh is my Black Friday shopper, so he went deal hunting today while I lounged around nursing a cold.
And a plate of leftovers.
And then a plate of pie.
(Rinse. Then repeat.)
The weather has been amazing, and if the ten day forecast holds true, we will be ringing in December with temps in the 60's. After 3 years of Idaho winters, it's a welcome thing to me!
This evening we put on some Christmas music while we decorated the Christmas tree. Alex and Derek were fairly wiggling with excitement. Their ages are so fun for the holidays.
Now the kids have been tucked in, my motrin has kicked in, and I'm feeling very blessed, indeed.
I still need to upload the Thanksgiving day photos, but here are some I snapped on Tuesday after school, when the leaves were just right for some jumping.
And coming soon to a blog near you-- in honor of one very special girl who started really reading on Thanksgiving Day, there will be a giveaway of a pair of fancy leg warmers like these Alex is wearing!
My friend Erin has opened an Etsy shop, and handmakes these cute accessories. So check back in later in the week for the giveaway, you can win an item for a boy or a girl. They make great gifts as well :)
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Happy Holidays from the Schore family!
