Ewan's take on Thanksgiving:
"Mommy, I thought Thanksgiving was more fun stuff instead of just eating."
"Mommy, you don't know how to make stuffing."

The holiday was good, we had the Bowers over for Thanksgiving, and seriously, all the food we made was some of the best food I've ever eaten (even the stuffing.)  Then I took a nice, long nap with the baby and afterwards we visited with my parents and my brother with his girlfriend.  Then we headed over to Bryce's parents' house and saw his uncle from L.A., some cousins, and Bryce's brother D.J. and girlfriend.  Ewan loves D.J., and he's such a great uncle.  Now Bryce has gone to San Angelo with Ewan and Fynn for his great uncle's funeral.  I've had the house to myself since yesterday at 9:30.  I haven't done  much:  watched movies, eaten pie and bonded with Corgan.  Then I did a TINY bit of shopping and lunch with Sarah.  It was a lot of fun.  The best part was finding GOOD movies at Target for only $3.98.  Can't beat that.  I'll be alone all day today, too, probably until 6:00.  More movies are in store for me.  Oh, and naps.

Side note:  Can anyone tell me why the addition of one wee baby to a family makes laundry shift from manageable to nearly impossible to keep up with?

Glad you made it thru the night okay!!! And thanks for yesterday...those movie deals rock...of course now I want to keep them all instead of give them away! :)

Silly Ewan, Thanksgiving is for grownups! :)

Glad you are having fun with a mini-vacation from the whole family! And the movie deals are target were good weren't they! Enjoy your little break, and some peace and quiet!

It's all the spontaneous, explosive poops and spit-ups. I'm positive that's what causes the mountains of laundry with newborns.

Umm, thank you for validating my laundry problems! I have three overflowing baskets next to me right now that need folding. But my motivation level... well let's just say it's lacking!
