Holidays

The holidays are coming so quickly this year! In 2 weeks we will head down to Georgia to spend the entire week with my parents and my younger brother and family. It should be a great time of relaxation while we spend time getting hair cuts, playing golf, shopping and of course, eating. I am already craving Thanksgiving dinner: turkey, broccoli casserole, carrot casserole (kind of like sweet potato casserole), and homemade cornbread dressing. Now all of you out there that think Stove Top is dressing, you need to eat some of my Mom’s cornbread dressing. That’s real dressing – it is sooo good. Once you try it, you’ll never go back. I’ll try to get a copy of her recipe and post it soon.

Baby update: This weekend we have completed 12 weeks! I am starting to feel less “yucky” although I am still tired, but that could just be from having 3 other children. But I am finally catching up on some house-cleaning that has been neglected the last few weeks. My bathroom is hoping that I get to it very soon! (So is my sweet husband).

I must go and get ready to greet the Pizza guy who is graciously bringing us supper tonight. Then my husband and I are doing another 24 marathon. We watched it for the first time this past season, which was season 5. So we have started to rent the previous seasons from the library. We are now on Season 2. But I have cheated some. The episodes are on-line so when I can’t stand to wait to find out what happens, I look online. My husband thinks I’m crazy but it doesn’t take anything away from my experience. That’s just how I am. I used to unwrap my Christmas gifts and rewrap them. I was still very excited on Christmas morning even though I knew what I was getting. That’s why I want to find out the sex of the baby in a few weeks. But I had told Brian we could wait if he wanted to (what was I thinking?) So, we’ll have to just save this conversation for another day.

Have a great weekend!

I hope you gave a great time and aren't too tired out by all the travelling and visiting.

We really would get along!!!

I agree 100%--Stove Top is NOT dressing! Karl's grandmother makes the best cornbread dressing!

Karl and I do "24" marathons, too. That show is like crack. We're addicted. "Hello, my name is Leslie and I'm a 24-aholic." We usually Netflix them and have to force ourselves to quit watching them so we get some sleep. I have cheated a little by reading the episodes online. I've even listened to it some on the radio when it was on (we can pick up the local Fox station). Karl is totally against it and he never lets me tell him anything! But, I definitely don't feel like I've spoiled anything by cheating a little. It only builds my anticipation!

You are so funny! My mom is just like you with the peeking. She got so good no one could tell she opened the present and retaped it!

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. Have a great time at your parents. We're going to visit mine as well. I totally agree about the stuffing!
