Milk Shakes and Carrousel with a friend

The mall has a new carrousel and I promised Leah I would take her after school. Our friend Destinee came with us as we pick her up after school. Needless to say they had a great time.

Leah's Report onThanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving morning I woke up early, as usual, and had cereal with milk and a glass of orange juice with Mommy. As soon as I finished, Daddy woke up and wanted waffles, so I thought, why not, I'll have some of those too! Mommy was already up as she cooked a large pork shoulder over night that needed out of the oven at 4:30am to make room for the turkey and other stuff.

Soon after breakfast my brother came home from work, he works nights, and started to clean out his room. Wait a minute, something special must be happening, my brother is cleaning out his room. The he went to sleep to be sure he was up when the guests arrived and he had to go back to work by midnight.

Then the Macy's parade started and Mommy called us to the family room. It was the first time I clearly understood the excitement. Almost lost my mind when I saw Dora!

After the parade, the preparations continued. I played outside in my pajamas cause no one took the time to change me out of those, hehe!

The house smelled amazing. You know we still have 2 kitchens so Mommy was cooking in one and Mimi baking in the other. I wanted to taste everything.

Then people started arriving. First Wita came. Then Tip and Lou, then my most favorite cousins, Chris, Hanna, and Sophie arrived with their parents. Then my cousin Lucas, who I haven't seen in over a year, arrived. It took me a minute to remember how much fun he was to play with and in no time was chasing him around. I even put my favorite cologne on him while I had him in a headlock as  he asked my mom if boys could wear this. It was great because he smelled like me the rest of the evening! Lucas had arrived with his dad and a little bit later his mom arrived with both his grandmas. We all got to write on a piece of paper what we were thankful for, which we read after saying grace, then we ate. After we ate, my Godparents showed up. It was a fun day for me.

Mommy was too busy to take pictures so we have none! I hope the people who took pictures send my mom some. My godmother usually has her camera so I hope she is reading this!

Wow, what a week! Oh, its only Monday?

That is how I felt at about 2:00. I starting taking a sewing class today with my friend Delia and i am so excited. I have been meaning to do this for quite some time and never seemed to have the time. Let me tell you that this year I have made it a point to find the time to do things I enjoy to keep my sanity. Things can get kinda crazy really quick around here so I took advantage of the availability of the class and made no excuses. The next thing we will tackle (Delia and I) is a photography class we have been talking about for the past 5 years! So as soon as the Christmas program at the day care is over, the Christmas dance recital at the studio is done and the holidays are enjoyed, we will schedule our photography class! Sooooo  excited!

Feeling Yucky!

Caught some weird bug yesterday. Sore throat, body aches,  congestion, sneezing, vomit, YUCK! Been in bed since last night. Woke up a little better except I have no voice. They say a cold front is coming in later today. As much as I love cold fronts (or at least our Florida version of one), gonna have to stay indoors.
