We're already excited about the holiday in our home! The kids have a football game with Dad planned, and I'll be in the kitchen all day, like every year. Going out to eat would be easier, but wouldn't taste nearly the same. Two days of cooking for one meal does sound insane!
This week has been a much needed vacation. I've been kind of lazy about blogging - really lazy. We've hit the book store 3 times already. It's nice to have NOTHING to do. The kids have been sleeping until around 10am. This messes up Sopes plan of taking them to the rink, but I'm not letting him wake them. Each day my naps would surely rival any cat!
We went to Sopes hockey game on Friday against Washington. It was great to see the kids so excited, they even made a sign. Jayla yelling, "Daddy" across the rink thinking he could hear her, reminded me of Jake being 6 again and doing the same thing. I did tear up a bit. Lyla was so excited cheering at one point, she forgot the seats flip up and fell right on her ass! She was fine.
The fans were some of the nicest people we've met! I've never had someone ask if there was anything we needed - so amazingly kind. I guess it is the "Southern Hospitality". Our son Jake, was amazed that so many people recognized us from my blog. It was great to have my son so proud of me - and tell me.
We're looking forward to an impromptu stop at the local Ronald McDonald House to have a visit this week. Especially at this time of the year, it's important to be thankful for our children's health, and share with those who need a little lift in their spirits.
Have a great Thanksgiving Day, and remember that Sopes will do his video blog tomorrow instead of Friday. Not sure if I even want to know what he has up his sleeve!
