Happy post-Thanksgiving! And the winner of the $250 Toys "R" Us gift card is...
...SuZ, from Not Your Typical Mommy. Congratulations—I hope your little girl enjoys her Barbie Power Wheels. And happy shopping for the baby! Thanks to everyone who entered, and thanks to Bill Me Later for the exceptionally generous giveaways leading up to Toy Tuesday on December 8. I love that they're donating so much to charity. You can see a list of the 12 participating blogs here.
I'll be doing a bunch of other giveaways in December starting Tuesday, December 1, with great stuff for you—because moms deserve treats, and lots of 'em.
I hope all of you had a fab Thanksgiving. Mine was great, though I still have a stuffing hangover.
It was a gorgeous day.
My sister, Judy, and baby Margo visited. Every time I held Margo, Max got a little agitated. He'd point to himself and to me, then he'd point to the baby and to Judy—he needed to remind me that I was his mom. But he was glad to help feed her.
Meanwhile, Sabrina thought she was the mother, because she insisted on holding Margo at all times.
I take back what I said about there being no glory in cooking a turkey. I mean, the hit of the evening was the sweet potato casserole with marshmallows I made, if I do say so myself, but Dave really did cook an excellent turkey. Props, honey!
Max had to watch the sweet potato casserole cooking. He had three helpings.
It was my birthday on Friday. I'd been trying to not pay it much attention since I wasn't sure how I felt about being a year older, but then I got a whole lot of birthday messages on Facebook, including one from a well-meaning guy who said "Happy Birthday, old friend" though his real meaning was "Happy Birthday, friend who I have known for a very long time." Just for the record.
