It's Thanksgiving, and the turkey smells great! I got up about 8 this morning, since the boys stayed up late so they slept in. That was nice. I got the turkey all cleaned and stuffed with stove top stuffing and in the oven by 9am. It'll be coming out around 4pm. It's a big bird! I made an apple and a pumpkin pie last night, and still have two more to make but it can wait til tonight. Potatoes are cut up and ready to be cooked and mashed, green bean casserole is put together and in the fridge waiting to be cooked, frozen corn in the freezer and premade biscuits to be cooked, and I am making my own gravy from the turkey broth once it comes out. MMMM I cant wait for dinner!

Craig should be arriving right around 4, and is eager to watch the football game. Apparently he is a big Saints fan and this is their first time playing the Thanksgiving game, so he is excited.

Soon after dinner I am taking Jacob and Nathan over to Mom and Dad's to see the rest of my family. My sisters and cousins are over there today and want to see the boys. We will visit for an hour or two and then head back home.

Mike's brother Jason has a webcam on his XBOX360, and Mike is going to do a videochat with his family tonight so they can see the boys today as well. It should be a fairly nice and relaxing day once I get dinner all finished up, and then clean up afterwards.

Time still flies!

I can't believe it's been over a month since I've done any blogging!! I've been so busy with school, studying, and trying to spend time with the boys. It's November now, and it snowed for the first time in my area today. That is when I really realized how much time has gone by. I'm halfway done with the semester already. I've got alot to talk about today!

Like I said, the semester is half over now, and I am doing pretty well in most of my classes. All but, you guessed it, math. I am skirting by with a 2.0 so far and it is getting even harder. But, in ChildHood Development and Writing I have a 4.0! I sat down with an academic advisor yesterday to create a schedule of all the classes I need to take and when to take them to get my associates degree. It will take me through Spring of 2013. Yep, three years!!!! When I started this, I thought two years was a long time to be in school. Sigh, oh well.

I will be taking a spanish class and an american sign language class in my last year. I am looking forward to that, I have always wanted to be able to speak spanish, and the asl will help Jacob with what he can't say. I already know a little sign, just certain words and the alphabet. I will try brushing up more over the next two years so I can have a head start when I finally get there.

Well, on Monday the 8th is Mike and my anniversary. Seven years now! Like I said, time flies! We already celebrated back over Labor day when we went away for a weekend, because we knew we wouldn't have time during the school semester. Also, we knew that by now we wouldn't have alot of money left! I still wanna do a little something on the actual day of our anniversary though, even if it is just a card. I guess we'll have to see what we can swing. We both have to be at school all day Monday, so it certainly won't be romantic.

Mike's friend Craig is driving up to spend Thanksgiving weekend with us. His family is down in Florida and he doesn't have the time to fly there for such a short time, so we invited him here. Which means I will be in charge of our Thanksgiving dinner this year. I've done it all myself before, but that was only with ONE baby and no school! Mike and I both have to be at school all day before Thanksgiving, so prepping ahead of time will have to be done that Tuesday if I can. Wish me luck!
