Happy Thanksgiving.

Noah dressed as an Indian for his Thanksgiving feast at school on Wednesday.
Our Thanksgiving started out perfectly. I got to sleep in since I was out late with the girls the night before. Aiden even came in and went back to sleep with me. He has been sick with another cold and cough. We spent the day watching the parade on TV, playing, coloring, watching the Ghost Hunter marathon and just relaxing...all 5 of us. Todd cooked us a delicious lunch too. It was wonderful. We get ready to leave the house around 5 to head up to Mendon for the Klauser thanksgiving. About 20 minutes after we get there, Aiden starts puking all over. So we pack up and head back home. Noah was home monday and tuesday from school with a stomach virus. 3 days later no one else had had it so I thought we were safe. Wrong. Poor buddy was scared, he just didnt' know what to do. So I'm trying really hard tonight to focus on all we have to be thankful for and not the fact that it's been a long week with sick kids. Colds and flus come and go but we still have each other and our health. There is too much disease,sickness, and tragedies in the world to let a little virus keep us down. I'm so grateful for a husband that is such a rock for me, 3 boys that I love more than life itself, and wonderful family and friends that I can count on for a good time but also help me through the rough spots. Unfortunately not everyone has that. So that is what I'm going to think about this Thanksgiving.
Now I'm going to see what kind of leftovers Todd and I can scrounge up for our "dinner".

I am very proud of you for thinking of all the things in life that are important to be thankful for when you really do have the right to wallow in self-pity...sick kids are the worse, especially at Aiden's age when he doesn't really understand and can't 'help' by making it to the bathroom. I am really sorry you missed Turkey Dinner though...it is my favorite meal of the year! I hope Todd made you something good to make up for it. Wishes for a better week and even more to be thankful for....we are all so Blessed.
