we had a relaxing day.
read books to each other.
buddy and i learned several "knots" from an old boy scout handbook (that has my dad's name on it..hehe..)
wrote 2,000+ words
cooked chicken in the crockpot
kids played outside for a little bit
listened to music, Christmas and Celtic
played with trains and train tracks
read some more
and drank lots of hot chai tea
we're ready for a quick morning here tomorrow. a few things in the kitchen, including making these cookies that look like acorns. get the corn ready. pop my sweet potato surprises in the oven. watch a bit of the parade. and go to my parents house for the grand meal. the little crafts we worked on this week are all ready and in the car. the kids say this will be the best Thanksgiving ever.
it will be because we are all here. i thank the Lord for this.
have a wonderful, thankful, Thanksgiving!
