Ya'll, here it is two days before Thanksgiving, and I still haven't blogged about Halloween. I am such a slacker. Even right now, I don't feel like posting. The thing is, I really want to get back into the habit of writing because it is such an important keepsake to me. We do a lot of fun things throughout the holiday season, so I'm hopeful that I'll at least be inspired with new content.
I had really gotten into the habit of documenting my life on Instagram, but it's just not the same as having a blog. I can't tell the whole story with one little photo or collage. I will probably do a few highlight posts in the days ahead to get everyone back up to speed on my life, but they won't be too in depth. I think the blogging absence, although sad, is indicative of the phase we are in with work, kids, and activities. I am going to make a conscience effort to document more frequently for myself.
So without further adieu, here is a highlight of our month.
The weekend after Halloween, we stayed around the house except for making a trip to Glasgow to eat at Shoney's and get some groceries. Good times!
The following weekend, we went to Marion to visit with Eric's family and to celebrate Grandad and Colby's birthday.
I had some training in Lexington the following week. I opted to stayed with my parents instead of a hotel so that they could watch Ellie. When I got back that weekend, we had a family day. After cleaning all morning, we took the kids to dinner and to Hobby Lobby to get ready to decorate. Three broke ornaments later, we were back home and putting up Christmas Trees.
Last week was busy, busy. We had a meeting with Eli's principal and attended a school day performance for Leadership Day. I was crazy swamped with work, and we FINALLY finished decorating the house.
All of that left huge mess at home, so Eric's mom watched the kids over the weekend so that I could clean. Friday night we dropped them off in Beaver Dam and ate dinner before heading back to Bowling Green. We stopped by Wal-Mart on the way home and picked up a few Christmas goodies. Back at home we watched a movie and crashed.
Sunday we skipped church, and I started cleaning at 8:30. Eric helped when he got up, and at 3:30 we STILL weren't done!! After meeting Eric's parents to get the kids, we ate dinner and went grocery shopping for Thanksgiving festivities.
Yay, Yay, Yay! Ok, sorry for the long post, but that should cover all of November. Here's to being a better blogger in December!
