A Quick Update

Sorry for the lack of excitement in this space over the past month. I've been a really lazy blogger. Turns out at nap time lately I'd rather read a book (House Rules by Jodi Picoult...thanks Sara!) than sit down with my computer and fill y'all in on the Crazy Joy news.

But I always feel decidedly optimistic on Mondays, so I'm here at 6:45 to catch you up before the sun rises and the babes awake.

We had an amazing Thanksgiving. You know it's my very favorite holiday. This year did not disappoint. The entire paternal side of B Daddy's family (and his maternal grandparents too) gathered together at his folks' home for the long weekend to eat, drink and be merry. What a gift it is to marry into a family you like to hang out with! We fried a turkey for the 4th year in a row. It was finger lickin' good as always. We even snuck out one night to catch the new James Bond, courtesy of my patron saint mother-in-law, who watched the bambinos.

This past weekend we mourned with the rest of the Bulldog Nation as our beloved Dawgs lost a hard-fought battle against the Crimson Tide. What a game!! We watched with the kids, which was highly entertaining. B Daddy and Squirt perfected their touchdown dance...

And did you catch that lighted tree in the background? That's right. We're on top of things over here. The 1st of the month and we've got a tree, a nativity and some garland over the mantle. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! My mission this week: plan and execute a birthday party for a certain little girl  who's turning 2. The big day is Friday and the party's on Saturday. With any luck you'll see pictures next Monday!
