We had a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation. We actually stayed at home for once! It was so nice to have some time at home together as a family. On Thanksgiving morning we got up early and ran the Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk in Springfield. Corey did a great job. I brought my yellow lab, Toby, with me. He had a great time running and walking with me and Eric. We had a great Thanksgiving dinner (check out our Thanksgiving movie) that afternoon, and watched Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving special. I did spend one day at school preparing for my Family Reading Night, which will be this Tuesday. Wait until you see my princess costume (the theme is The Tale of Despereaux)! I also finished reading the books for the Missouri Mark Twain Award (I am a reader/selector this year - too cool!) and sewed an apron. To top off our great weekend, it snowed today! I love snow! It was too warm for it to stick to the ground, but it sure was pretty coming down all day. It made me feel very festive. :-) I'm keeping it pretty simple with the menu this week, with a couple of last week's items kept in because I didn't end up making them.

Have a great week!
