Thoughts in a Quiet Moment...

I really wanted to link up Wordful Wednesday or Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop last week, but it was not to be.  The holiday was super low key.  The food was really good.  We had leftovers.  When we share the holiday, the leftovers don't last as long.

We went to the holiday extravaganza.  They should call it Fantasy of Gingerbread Houses.  The house contest was the best part.  They used to have soaring massive trees.  This year there were but a fistful of trees that would be too large for a regular apartment.  The kids performed and I didn't forget the camera for once.  The pictures are mediocre because I was unwilling to stand in the aisle and block the other parents from seeing their children.  Not everyone felt the same way.

Now, I am going to save this post, log off the internet on this machine and in about thirty minutes or so, the other computer will have booted up and I will load the photos.

Dude just figured he'd be bored.  He brought a Sudoku book.





Yeah, I am wearing orange.  Because I am a rebel.




Going to check-in.   Boys on one side.  Girls on the other.  Just like the pilgrims.

If you have a keen eye, you might catch a glimpse of the boy who is causing all the trouble around here(unbeknownst to himself).  Nah, I don't have the other parents' permission to put their kids pics up.  I'll just upload them to my real FB account.  Somehow, that's different.

Pretty, wow, huh?

The local architecture firm that my husband DOESN'T work for.

Not sure what is up with this face.





All in all it was an okay day.

I love holiday leftovers...I am eating pumpkin pie as I type ;)
My kids love Sudoku right now. They are much better at it than I am, go figure.
Those gingerbread houses are amazing!
It's so nice to see pictures of you and your family. Have a wonderful rest of the holiday weekend :)

I KNEW there was a reason we clicked!! You're a rebel, too!

I shoulda known!

I have about had my fill of leftovers. I'm done. I promise you, it has been forever since I have eaten as much as I have this weekend. I should be ashamed.

Just eating for the sake of eating.

On another note...LOVE the gingerbread houses.

And the pics?!? Just precious. What a beautiful family you have! Just perfect!
