Shh! While Bee is Sleeping...

...I thought I'd sneak on here!

I miss blogging so much!

Plus also I need to post at least twice in November.

So sad.

But let's just act like old friends and pick up where we left off like nothing ever happened, OK?


There are 2 1/2 more weeks until Christmas break from school. I can't wait. But knowing we have such a short amount of time is helping me be really firm in my commitment to get 'er done. Whining? No. Pleading? Don't hear you. Get busy minions!

Mama would like to NOT still be finishing this school year in July.

We went out of town for Thanksgiving to see some of the husband's family that we haven't seen in forever and when we got there...they weren't home. Yep. We had what you might call a little glitch in our communication. But it was OK, we went to a restaurant for Thanksgiving, which was a first for me. Boy, do a lot of people eat out on Thanksgiving!

But it was delicious. And I did not spend hours in the kitchen.

Poor Sweetheart was sick while we were out of town. She had a cough--and it was just viral--but she ran fever every other day for almost a week. Speaking of weak, she was. Her little skinny body just can't handle fighting a sickness that long. She lost about 5 pounds which officially put her under 90 pounds. So we didn't do too much. A lot of relaxing in the hotel--some sightseeing. It was nice and we had fun. She finally got over the illness exactly 2 weeks after it first started.

Then she got hives. That's this week's ailment.

Bee seemed to enjoy her first Thanksgiving. She was listening to the waiter here.

She had sweet potatoes, some pumpkin pie, and table.

And now (brace yourself)...let's get caught up with the Family Revised in 1 minute or less. (I mean, I really don't know how fast you read, but still.)

Little Bit turned 9. Had American Girl Birthday (red stars). Got long awaited Molly doll.

Sweetheart went to a "tacky mini-golf" birthday party for Kate.

And Bee was cute and turned 6 months old.

Was that one minute?

And just because I want to remember it: We had just family over for Little Bit's party this year. So, I asked her what she wanted to eat for her birthday.

Cole slaw.

What kid asks for cole slaw for their birthday lunch? So we thought, "brisket goes with cole slaw." Well, S didn't have time to do that and someone told me HEB sells precooked briskets. Awesome!

Then I got there. And I saw the price.

And this is what our brisket turned into in a hurry:

Hope you all had a great November.

Hope someone is going to read this.

Hope to blog more next month.

It shouldn't be hard to beat TWO posts.

  8. I read it, and loved it! I only get to check a few times a month so it all works out.

    I too am pushing for school before break even though I am really ready for a break! I think we have both learned from past summers to be diligent.

    That is crazy about Thanksgiving! I am so glad you found a place to eat and everything is well.

    One of my favorite things this year is the Bible Study for All Ages, SO thankful you mentioned it here!

  9. I read it, dear Brenda!! Thanks for the update! Your girls are gems...truly! I love that Little Bit asked for cole slaw for her birthday lunch...that is awesome! Sweetheart is such a lovely young lady..and that babe of do you keep from smooching that face every minute of the day?!? Thanks for posting! Enjoy your last two weeks of school :)
