How are weekend ended...a concussion.
Gobble Gobble!! Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday! Counting our many many blessings!
This year was so very low key. No traveling, no family visiting. Just us. The first time ever in 13 years! Phil played tag football in the morning with some guys in the ward and we had a traditional homemade feast in the afternoon. In the evening we went to the traditional holiday movie,The Life of Pi. Was pretty good! Owen sat thru the whole thing! Emma cried at the end, my sensitive girl. The rest of us talked about it for 2 days. :)
Friday we put up our tree and decorations. My mom(in town with Phil's kids) came over for a bit to help me with my sewing machine and with a sewing project. Yay! Thank you Mom! We continued to munch on left overs. We also watched Polar Express and had Polar Express Hot Chocolate. Thank you Pinterest! Was delicious! And it was pretty fun to have while we sat thru the Hot Chocolate song. :)
Sunday seemed to arrive earlier than expected, but that's always the case. We were having fun enjoying our extra time together! Our time of fun ended Sunday when Emma slammed her head into the wall that separates two rooms. Gave herself a concussion! Not sure how she managed that! Its was a nasty bruise and bump. Her biggest concern? She didn't want to go to school where the other kids would see her head! Only 6 and already self aware like that? Wait til you're 15 missy! Ha!
We had a great 4 days together and I wish it could have been longer! We are so blessed to live where we live, to have Emma's school, our ward, and the friends we have! We are so blessed with our family, no matter how far apart! We are very lucky people! Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and counted their many blessings!
