Thursday morning everyone was running around getting all the dishes together for our HUGE Thanksgiving meal, which was absolutely yummy. We all gathered around in the kitchen for Paw-Paw's prayer and enjoyed a wonderful meal. We didn't stay too much longer, as we wanted to get home fairly early, get unpacked and put the little one to bed at a decent hour.
On Sunday Melanie let us have Elise for a few hours so that we could put out our Christmas decorations and do the tree as well. That was practically an all day thing! LOL Of course, I can't focus on one thing without getting distracted and moving on to another thing. I started putting the Christmas decorations out and decided to go ahead and take down the wine rack. A while back Raina had given us a wicker wine rack that I had in the dining area with my shot glass collection and wine glasses, etc. Now that the babies are pulling up on stuff, Michael and I thought it would probably be a good idea to go ahead and take that down. It's actually a lot heavier than I thought it was, but I didn't want to take the chance of them pulling it down on themselves and having all that glass shatter everywhere! That would not be good!
So anyways, I was busy, busy trying to get everything in order and cleaned yesterday and well into the night last night. With some help from my wonderful, gimp husband (Love you Babe!!)
