I don't know what happened to this month! Really, I'm shocked that (a) it will be December in just a matter of days and (b) Lina is going home to Germany tomorrow (tomorrow?!?). I don't remember really what we did this month, but I do know today I feel the pressure of fitting so much in. I'm thinking of things like oh we never played tennis, or went to a movie (although she went to one with a friend), went to Dollywood, etc. We had a really yummy and wonderful Thanksgiving with both sets of families and quick stop at my friend Cara's to find out (via the inside of a cake) that she's having a GIRL!! Her first girl and this is great b/c Hallie has another friends (her first new friend was born a few weeks ago). I know this is funny, but I totally envision all of them sitting around a little table having tea...in a few years... Anyway, I still have a full belly and a warm heart with thoughts of all I'm thankful for and that I got to be surrounded with all the people I love (well most of them). I got to see my BFF this week, and we even got away for a painting class together!!! We went to the Fantasy of Trees, and I finally got a photo of my kids with Santa. I guess we do have the one of Natalie crying when she was two, and the one of us with the Santa hired one year for his store (but that Santa had sort of a dirty mind and I really don't count him except I got a really cute up close one of him and Natalie). I really missed not seeing my sister (she was in Hilton Head of all places and I wish I could have been there too!), but I should be seeing her in the next few weeks. In the meantime I'll be getting ready for Christmas, and saying goodbye to Lina Lou :(. I'm so grateful her coming here and all she has brought to our family!
I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
