Pre Thanksgiving

Gracie has been healthy for a month...knock on wood, Thank God!  It does wonders for her mood, for the most part.  We went to her school (me and dad) to eat Thanksgiving lunch with her.  My intentions were to leave her there to take her nap and get stuff done but she gave me the sweet face and said, "I wanna go with Mama!"and of course I folded and brought her home.  Most of her friends had left and I didn't have the heart to leave her.  She was so good when we got back.  I helped my parents take some things to Goodwill, bought 2 pies at Sam's and came home to clean the downstairs and wash the dog.  Gracie stayed out of my way when I vacuumed and mopped ad she "helped"/watched me give Hope a bath (she stunk!)  That's another great thing about this age, they want to be helpers.  Grace really is a great helper.  She helps unload the silverware from the dishwasher.  She helps put the wet laundry into the dryer and take the dry clothes out of the dryer.  She likes to hand me the hangers to hang the clothes. 

I am cooking tomorrow and bringing the food (well, I'm making beans and the turkey breast this year) to my mom and dad's house.  We'll spend the day with them.  Friday we'll be lighting the tree in Alamo Plaza (well, Gracie will be using her "wand" with Santa).  It's an exciting week.  If it's on the news I'll post the link so you can see.
