Wow you have a lot going on, I'm tired just reading it!! Sounds like his bday celebration was a blast!! topped with Thanksgiving too - phew! How are you feeling about your parents' impending visit? how's your mom been with this pregnancy? We had my family up from NC from Tues-Sat morning and I'm sad to say that I'm good with not seeing my sister for a long while. She couldn't have shown a more selfish side if she tried. But I got to see my nieces for a couple of days (they were with their father, who was also up from NC to see his family, for the first couple days) and that was great - I love and miss them both so much. And they got to play with the boys, which warmed my heart. Thanksgiving was actually great this year - a few people bailed so the crowd was a bit more manageable and besides my sister, no drama! And everyone left right around 9pm! WOO! and now - 3 weeks until Christmas?! holy moly! I'm not prepared! We aren't getting the boys much so it shouldn't be a big deal. Is everyone else as prepared as I am??
