I know that it's been a while since there has been a real post. Honestly, I just haven't felt much like blogging lately. A lot has happened and now it's too overwhelming to try to post about all of it. So here is the cliff's notes version and a few random pics.

We went to Indiana and the trip seemed like it took forever! We visited some friends and then went to my mom's. I made a yummy Thanksgiving dinner for my mom, brother and sister (and of course my hubby and kids too). We watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...my favorite part of Thanksgiving. We spent the rest of the night at my Grandparent's House catching up with extended family.

Friday there was some fun shopping with the girls followed my the Christmas tree lighting in downtown Indianapolis with a serious hook up from my awesome brother! Thanks Scottie! Saturday was all manner of chaos with people locked out of houses and a medical emergency. Long, long story. We did have fun celebrating Lindsey's 2nd birthday a little early too.

Sunday was another long trip home with Joe leaving to go out of town the very next morning at something like 3:30 in the morning! I think I might have finally recovered from all that exhaustion. Tiring as it all was, we all had a great time and are glad we made the trip.

Since then, Joe has been called as Gospel Doctrine teacher and gotten a promotion of sorts at work. We're are looking forward to the pay raise that will bring come August. Joe is yet again out of town this week and last night my fantasy football season came to a crushing halt after losing to my very most favorite brother- in -law Ken. I am pretending to be sad for Ken's sake, since when he called to gloat last night I wasn't even aware that I was playing him. (My fantasy football team has been less than stellar this year and I gave up hope a long time ago.) I love you Ken! :)
Today is our first official snow day due a thick layer of ice followed by several inches of snow with more blowing and drifting snow to come all night. Why does it only snow when my husband goes out of town? More to come on our official snow day activities...
