We have recently been talking to our boys about cussing………..our oldest will be 14 years old in January and wants to be 16 and on his own. Not really but he wants to declare his freedom, be a part of the Free People. You know do what you want when you want and forget around everyone around you! I know its a phase that the age goes through but wow, just trying to figure out what there minds are thinking and trying to reach their hearts is stressful to say the least. I just want to get it right.
Our Thanksgiving was great with our friends here………..of course we did not eat all of the cookies or the pies! We had few leftovers in the main menu area, in fact I want to buy another turkey just for the great sandwiches, but a much smaller one this time.
We watched alot of football (loved that part of it) and played cards at the end of the day. All the kids got along very well and we did things together which made it perfect. Still amazed that you spend 8 hours cooking for 30 minutes of eating…..we made the kids stay around the table just a little longer, until we all were finished. They didn’t seem to mind so much.
I did miss my family in NC….in August we thought we were going there for Thanksgiving. But I will get there soon, God willing. I wish they would venger out here but doubt that will happen unfortunately despite my ukf8001axx feelings about the whole matter.
