Oh my goodness!
I feel so behind on.... everything!
It's amazing that even staying home I can be so busy. I have been filling my time with getting ready for Ava Grace (via books and articles and DVDs and organizing, of course). Add to that house shopping, an upcoming court date (Lily stuff), a holiday, and 2 "homes" to maintain, and a hopping Pampered Chef business and some photography stuff too - whew! So today, I will attempt to get back in the swing of things!
Here is my menu plan this week:
Barbecue and Potato Salad (made last night)
Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie Cups (Pinterest)
Crock Pot Cheddar Beer Chicken
Leftovers...or a casserole from the freezer
Grilled BBQ Chicken
with green beans and potatoes
Lasagna (Lily's request)
Chicken Fingers (because Chris can't do Italian since he came down with his stomach virus a few weeks ago on ravioli night... enough said, lol)
Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup
(mmm...one of my favorites!)
We had THE MOST relaxing and wonderful Thanksgiving Break! We got to see both Chris' family and my family. We ate until we were stuffed and then ate again. Chris and I attempted a little Black Friday shopping in the middle of the night - it lasted all of 30 minutes and we left laughing so hard we could barely walk the zillion miles to our car, lol. (Friday night we scored our Black Friday Deal anyway... without crowds... thank you Franklin, KY and Wal-Mart where we were passing through after dropping Lily off at her mother's). And the rest of the break? A lot of quality time together - watching football and movies snuggled up on the couch! It was WONDERFUL!
I took a few pictures while we were in Chattanooga... I always get so busy visiting and enjoying myself that I don't take as many as I would like! But, here are a few family shots...
Cousins: Kenslee, Bentlee, Lily, and Elizabeth
My sweet family: The ever growing belly containing Ava Grace, myself, Lily, and Chris
My amazing Parents...
We are so blessed to have them in our lives!
Lily, Kenslee (always on the move) and Bentlee
...and Lily, Elizabeth, and Bentlee again!
It's so fun having the kids around! They provide endless entertainment and laughs! They always have such a good time together at Thanksgiving!
I hope your holiday weekend was as fun and full as ours was! :-) Now... counting down 'til Christmas! :-)
