Thanksgiving and after

Well, our Thanksgiving was SO nice! I swear, it was such a Norman Rockwell type holiday. The night before, the kids and I made chocolate pies and pumpkin pies then the kids cut up the bread for stuffing, while listening to Christmas music. Then on Thanksgiving morning, Tony and Johnny and Doug went and played their annual Turkey Bowl Football game. Tina came over to keep me company. I spent all morning cooking and watching the Macy's parade. Morgan was so excited to see the Rockettes...every year since she was a baby, she loved to watch them! LOL! Anyhow, I put on an 18 lb. turkey, tons of stuffing, 3 big heads of cauliflower, 4 huge bunches of broccoli, 5 packs of brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and corn. YUMMY! We broke out our good china for that feast!
Before dinner, I went to visit my Nicky at the cemetery. I put up a little tiny tree right by him. Oh the grass finally grew so its not all muddy there any more. My FIL is making a wooden cross to put up for the winter. This way, we can find where he is at when there is 2 feet of snow on the ground. Just so sad that he wasn't spending Thanksgiving with us. Hopefully he was spending it with Jesus at his dinner table. I miss him so much.
On a lighter note, Kenny just got over one real bad chest cold and has just started another one! Last week we put him back on his oxygen because of his apnea monitor alarm going off on low heart rate. Seems like when he falls into a deep sleep, he forgets to breathe...kinda scary! SOooo...the oxygen is staying put...mostly at night. He is now in 3 month clothes! Woop Woop! My almost 7 month 3 month clothing.LOL! We bought him a walker to sit in so he isn't laying down all the time. He really likes it.
I took the family Christmas picture know how hard it is getting 6 kids to smile and look at me all at once? It was NOT easy! I wanted to take it over again, but the kids didn't want any part of that. I don't like how the tree looked in the final picture..looked kinda small..but it really isn't! OK, well today is my hubby's 42nd birthday. I cant believe that he is 42! I met him when he was 24! We've been together for a Loooooooooooong time! I love it! Well, that's all for now.
