Oh and we also went to Sturbridge. Below is a picture of a house on Chadburn. The picture really doesn't do it justice. Any blow up Santa you've ever dreamed of is in this man's front yard. I'm not quite sure how the Homeowners Assoc. has allowed this but I'm glad they do because we drive by quite often for entertainment for JPW.

Here's what we had some Christmas music playing, JPW screaming and breaking ornaments, and G and me placing the lights on the tree backwards-meaning when we got to the bottom we didn't have a plug to plug in. So taking all the lights back down and re-lacing them through the tree. Oh and you want to know about the lovely wreaths outside, G went and grabbed us some dinner and came back in-I asked him how the wreaths looked from the street, he said well one wreath has slide down the window. Lovely! Did anyone elses Christmas decorating go like this? I keep reading everyone's blogs about these picture perfect decorating tree memories. And seeing those cute pictures of children hanging ornaments on the tree.

Then we headed to the Lake to Bdiddy's and Aunt Pam's house. JPW and Cooper had a blast playing outside, throwing rocks and swinging. We also snagged a few pictures. Cousin "Pooper" as JPW calls him wasn't very excited about the pics. We fed JPW a little early because his lunch is usually at 11am at school. He ate mostly mac and cheese and my corn bake. I was so excited he ate the corn bake. He's not digging veggies these days. Then after his lunch it was time for a nap. He was sacked out. So while he was napping we ate are Thanksgiving lunch. I can't tell you the last time we've eaten without JPW, we were able to talk with cousin Lindsey and even tossed in a few rounds of "Are You Smarter than a 5th grader" I was the host, I know I'm not smarter than a 5th grader. I soon found hosting was just as hard because I couldn't pronounce half the words. By the way, have you ever heard of the word "superlative" well I hadn't and I pronounced it as "super-late-tive" This was the first year we played board games. Cousin Lindsey's boyfriend Aaron plays games with his family on holidays so we tried to make him feel at home. Yes his team got the million dollar question right. ha!
After Bdiddys and Aunt Pam we headed to Uncle Marvin and Aunt Peggy's house in Wetumpka. Cousins Mark, Jen, Ayden and Maya were in town from North Carolina. We haven't seen them since last Thanksgiving so it was great to catch up with them. JPW had so much fun running around outside with them. Ayden and Maya love "Uncle G"! Maya spent most of the time snuggling with Uncle "G" on the couch. She is such a cutie! We didn't catch any pics with all three of them. It's hard trying to get 3 kiddies to sit still for a pic. We did have turkey again for dinner and it was wonderful. I just love to eat so Thanksgiving makes me Happy!
So to sum up our Thanksgiving we were quite busy! Even in midst of all this busyness we still remembered to thank the Lord for all of our blessings. I could list a million things I'm thankful for. Especially my incredible Lord, amazing husband, precious son, loving family and friends and fp! I feel so undeserving of all of these things! My God has blessed my life beyond measure!
I hope you and your family had a blessed Thanksgiving!

After school we headed to Maw Maw's house (G's mom) to trick or treat with cousins Hunter and Dylan. JPW had it made. He sat in the stroller and strolled his way down the street. He isn't good at listening to instruction so I wasn't risking him running in the road. We had a great time with Hunter and Dylan. Dylan made sure JPW knew exactly what to do when they got to the door. I can't even count how many times people said "oh what a pretty little girl" to JPW. HELLO, aren't puppies usually boys and kitties are girls? Do you think he looks like a girl? He did have the costume covering his hair and his checks were red from his eczema. I don't get it!
Even still we had a blast trick or treating with Hunter and Dylan!
On Saturday, we went to the church's trunk or treat. Another chance to get Mommy and Daddy more candy! ha! JPW came out of his costume really quick. He decided he would rather play on the inflatibles than trick or treat. Let me just say they sure don't make those inflatibles "parent friendly" JPW is at the age where he can jump in them but if there is a wall to crawl up he can't make it by himself. So Mommy jumped on in. Then I became the inflatible worker pushing all the kids up the wall. I didn't mind they had so much fun! Another lesson JPW needs to learn is how to stand in line and wait your turn. He would come out of the inflatible and head back to the front of the line. After Mommy was worn out, our friend Hunter helped by letting JPW hang out in the Safari Bus inflatible. JPW loves Mr. Hunter!
We had a great Halloween this year! Isn't JPW was the cutest puppy ever!
