Week 47

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  We're on Thanksgiving break here enjoying every minute of it.  It feels good to have some downtime at home.  Enough relaxing though.   It's time to get busy prepping for the big Turkey day.  I still can't believe we're here already and that December is just around the corner. Where does the time go? 

At least I can rewind a little so we can look back on last week's pictures:

Day 320- Monday 11/16/15
Saved by the Kindle!  Brandon had homework on a book they read in class but there were not enough copies for everyone to bring home.  He thought he could do it without the book but quickly realized he needed to cite page numbers with specific examples in his answers.  Luckily he has a Kindle we could download the book to.  Problem solved!  His citations were in line numbers instead, but hey, it still worked.  And that pencil he's using has seen better days.  I guess the kid is part beaver. *sigh*

Day 321- Tuesday, 11/17/15
Justin is enjoying the extra time he has on this minimum day by spending it annoying the cat ;0)  He's so much happier when he has a short day, but then again, who wouldn't be?

Day 322- Wednesday, 11/18/15
Poor Tyler has his truck in the shop for a new paint job and needs to get rides from his mommy.  I don't mind the extra time with him, but he misses his freedom and can't wait to get his ride back.

Day 323- Thursday, 11/19/15
Only one more week until Thanksgiving!  I still have my house decorated for fall until after the big day and then we'll break out the Christmas stuff to change things up.  The kids are excited for the holidays but don't really want to think about Christmas until the Turkey has had his day.  Good for them.  I'm totally alright with that.

Day 324- Friday, 11//20/15
Brandon has found a book series he loves which is great because it's so hard to find books he needs at his lexile level for reading counts and these work.  He'll be good for the rest of the year just reading this Series of Unfortunate Events set.

Day 325- Saturday, 11/21/15
Date night!  John and I headed to our old college stomping ground in Davis and ate at the Graduate having burgers and Tahiti tea--yum!  Then we took in the new Bond movie with just about everyone else in town.  LOL--totally packed house for sure but good flick and good company.

Day 326- Sunday, 11/22/15
Justin is wrapping up his service project for school by making some 20x20 cat blankets for the animal shelter.  He cut 8 of them out today, and I'll help him sew them together sometime during next week's break.  Then he'll be done and can get his paperwork signed.  Yay!

That's it for now.  Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving and be sure to save room for pie!
