So, October is in the past now. Only 25 more days until Thanksgiving. Today, while I let the girls (Page and Maia) play outside and sidewalk chalk, I will be taking down the Halloween decorations and putting up the Thanksgiving decorations. As of right now, it will be another low key Thanksgiving for the AZ Hustedts (unless someone wants to visit us!) We will probably do the same as last year, wake up EARLY, grab a quick granola bar out the door and drive the hour (hour and a halfish) to Fountain Hills for the ONLY Thanksgiving parade in AZ. Let's hope it doesn't rain this year! Page had fun last year, but didn't really get it. I think she'll have alot more fun this year. Then, we'll make the drive back home, have a nice yummy brunch and watch the Christmas Parades on TV. Steve and Page will hang out in the Living Room and I will begin making WAY too much food for the three of us! The holidays are our favorite time of year. We can't wait.
There seems to be so much that still needs to be dine by then. It would be great if I were full by Christmas, but that just might be a Christmas miracle. I do have two little babies starting in January and March, so those will help in the new year! Then I will be full! Steve is still working alot and will be gone some more this month. We need to work on helping him relax and enjoy the time he is home and prepare for our wonderful holidays here and of course... our trip back home. Right now, it looks like we are either leaving on Thursday, December 17 or Friday, December 18. It all depends on Steve's work schedule. We'd like to make it home for the Rolves Christmas at Mom and Dad's this year, but we'll have to see how that works out! So, thus begins a very busy time of year. We can't wait to spend Thanksgiving here in AZ - low key and then spending the other holidays at home with all of our friends and family!
