There is just so much to be done with too little time. The end of fall quarter in fast approaching and, while I’m looking forward to a bit more free time (or at least free to choose what I do when), it’s kind of come to my attention that acquired quite a to-do list during what is sure to be a busy few weeks.
For example, an expanse of days at both my parents’ house and Billie’s. Ah, travelling. So invirgorating and yet exhausting. We do hate to love you.
Anyway, the need for a blog is nagging at me. So much that I am avoiding other, probably more pressing, things. So, no lengthy post on the joys of Thanksgiving or the time spent with loved ones. Not even a post dedicated to all that I/we are thankful for (hint: it’s a LOT). I will give a shout out though to all of YOU. This has been a long and, at times, lonely year. Blogging has been an outlet like no other. But the best part is the interaction, the feedback. So, a special thanks to anyone who ever commented. There were days when your words may have made all the difference.
I don’t think I took but a handful of pictures in all the festivities, so I’ll have to go with what I’ve got.
Ali and Tony at the Tillamook Cheese Factory some two weeks ago.
I ordered these shoes from The Children’s Place for under $5. But I think they’re too small. Ali is growing SO FAST!
Billie came down the weekend before Thanksgiving and we had our own little dinner. Thank you Fred Meyers !
Aunt Alyssa, pretty much Ali’s new favorite person.
From the left; Trista, my mom, and Alyssa. Getting in the line outside Walmart about 5am on Black Friday. Yeah, we scored big…
Adorable Adriah who is getting so big! I had the pleasure of spending a few minutes with her the day after T-giving.
Out to dinner for Cass’s birthday. And, of course, there is no group shot.
Tony and Ali on Sunday when we went to get our Christmas tree.
We did good!
