Week 47

Where did my free week go?  It sure flew by fast.  How many days until Christmas break? :0)  I didn't get half the things done I wanted to get done, but I had fun and it was relaxing.  Christmas--yikes!  I'm not ready for that.  Our decorations will not be going up until after Dec 1st.  I need the rest of this week to transition and say goodbye to fall.

Here's a look at Thanksgiving week:

Day 323- Sunday, 11/18/12
Last stop on our girl's weekend.  We're having a drink while waiting for a late lunch.  What a fun trip with a fun group of girls.

 Day 324- Monday, 11/19/12
Time to thaw the turkey.  It's almost as big as Brandon.  The kids are happy to be home this week and look forward to turkey dinner.

 Day 325- Tuesday, 11/20/12
I was looking out back and noticed that our patio tree by the pool is now full of these beautiful berries.

 Day 326- Wednesday, 11/21/12
Look how big our kitty is getting.  Rusty is about 4 and 1/2 months now and is turning into a fun loving cat.  He's really happy we are home this week to give him some extra attention.

 Day 327- Thursday, 11/22/12
Happy Thanksgiving!  The boys are ready to eat.  It's just our family today and then tomorrow we do another large meal with John's family.

 Day 328- Friday, 11/23/12
It was turkey yesterday and prime rib today!  John's parents, his brother, and brother's girlfriend will be coming over to help us demolish this huge slab of meat.

 Day 329- Saturday, 11/24/12
 John and I met up with an college friend, Deb and her husband Doug, for some wine tasting in Lodi.  It was a beautiful, sunny day so we visited a few wineries and had a wonderful picnic lunch with thanksgiving leftovers.  We're so blessed to have such good friends.

Wait!  Time for our monthly family photo.
 November's Family Photo
This month we got the whole Packham clan in there with John's parents, his brother, his brother's girlfriend and us all together for the holiday.  My couch is just big enough ;0)  His parents live in Oregon so we don't really see them much.  It's been a few years so we had a good visit.

OK!  That's it.  Thanks for stopping by and see you in December.
