Thanksgiving 2012

Things were way different this year.  First time in 28 years that I haven't had Thanksgiving with my Mom and Dad.  We don't celebrate Holidays or anything with Bob's parents.  Its a long story, but this year we went to my Sister Miranda's house.  I guess I am preparing myself in everyway possible for what is about to happen. 

Changes are happening all around me.  My kids only have 3 weeks left at Sarah Jane before we pack up and leave to Texas.  Its crazy to think we'll be in Texas in a little over a month.  34 days to be exact.

Our tradition for the last 5 years has been stopping at  Einstein's for bagels and a coffee.  I don't know why we started this tradition, but we did it again this year.  It works out perfect, the boys normally eat a whole bagel and then another half with some cream cheese.

My monkeys with the dogs.  Notice Jaxon is making Nova smile.  Silly boy!

Bob pretty much cooked ALLLL day, he loves to cook, I don't.  I try, but I don't love it like he does.  Bob made cornbread from scratch for the dressing, mash potatoes that taste like HEAVEN and we, yes both of us, made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with cream cheese frosting. 

Miranda bought a small 10lb turkey, which was perfect for us.  It turned out pretty dang good.

I took some family photos for my best friend, so I left for a bit and when I got back we ate. 

And that was Thanksgiving.  We stopped at my parents house before I went out to shop with my Sister and Mom, then they dropped me off at Walmart to shop with Misty.  Misty and I had all our stuff in our cart for the 8pm sales by 6:30pm and it worked out perfectly.  We camped out by the dual DVD Players for 2 hrs before I got in line to wait there.  It was so much fun, I just wish I had felt a little better.

Little did I know that I was coming down with a cold worse than I thought.  I woke up Friday morning having a hard time breathing.  Ended up going to the doctors and being diagnosed with Bronchitis that was turning quickly into Pneumonia.  Today I'm feeling a lot better, yesterday I was miserable and laid on the couch ALL day!

Lexi @ 3 & 1/2

Oh this girl, she is full of spunk, life and craziness.  There is never a dull moment with Lexi. 

Some things I want to remember:

*She hates to eat unless its cheese, meat or cereal

*She thinks people "hide" things in her food

*She has a sassy attitude and isn't afraid to speak what she thinks

*She is 100% girl, but isn't afraid to get dirty

*She loves skinny jeans and has every color

*She is obsessed with clothes

*She loves rocks and has a rock collection at Grandma's

*She loves to play cars when the boys aren't around

*She loves to make a mess of anything

*She is sneaky, when she is quiet something is happening

*She is very very smart, sometimes I think too smart

*She is stubborn and once she has her mind set on something she isn't changing

*She loves shoes, preferably boots with the FUR or flip flops

*She is curious about everything

*She loves to torment the dogs, preferably little ones that don't stand a chance

*She WILL NOT try something, if she doesn't like the way it looks, she doesn't like it PERIOD

I have to remind myself daily that she isn't a baby anymore and sometimes I find a tear rolling down my face.  Where does time go and WHY does it go so fast.  My little girl is growing up and all I can say is WATCH OUT WORLD, here comes LEXI!!
