Longest Day Ever!

Today seemed eternal!! Woke up to Evan screaming "Mommmmy" at 7am. Then washed & dried my stubborn hair that takes about an hour or so to dry. Afterwards, Gio magically remembered he had a project due tomorrow & the computer wasn't turning on so he could work on it. Through all of this drama, I'm fixing breakfast & cleaning the kitchen amidst Evan's whining & screaming. To add to the chaos, I decide to take all 3 boys to Walmart. Although they are a big help, it's hard for me to shop & look through my coupons while I'm trying to keep an eye on all 3 of them. Anyway, we survived & made it home to put all of the groceries away & put Evan down for the nap that he never took. lol Needless to say, I took a nap because I was both mentally & physically exhausted by then. I have to honestly say that us moms do not get the recognition we deserve. “Any mother could perform the jobs of several air traffic controllers with ease.” - Lisa Alther

This year we had the most simple but beautiful Thanksgiving ever!! The boys helped with most of the preparations, the food came out delicious, & it was such a wonderful feeling to sit around our dining room table in our new home & give thanks for all that we've accomplished & been blessed with. This was all followed by turning on the Christmas tree for the first time which amazed Evan as always :) We then did a puzzle & played Buzz Word until 10 o'clock. I think it was most special Thanksgiving ever because I spent it at home with my guys :)
