At least they are smiling...

  • We didn't have to cover up any baby dolls in the middle of the night so I guess that we all slept well.  Robby did mention his dream about being trapped in a parking deck while on a bicycle.  I am not too sure but I think that dream has some type of significant meaning-just not sure what it is. 
  • The kids were up early this morning and since Anderson's new presents are still in the living room, they were building domino races, shooting nerf guns and working on Anderson's screw/bolt project.  (And speaking of that, goodness gracious!  That will take him forever to accomplish-I even think Graham is going to get one similar for Christmas)
  • Once Robby left, we started our morning.  The kids just had a few things to do school wise-phonics, computer math, reading and Bible study.  Then they had quite a list of other things to do.  I do have a long list of things to do before Thanksgiving but they are pretty random and not really related to Thanksgiving-like clean their school desks, organize the toy room and wipe down the trim.  I am pretty sure our Thanksgiving guests will have no idea if our trim is wiped down nor will they care if it was cleaned or not.  But for some odd reason, I will sleep better tonight.
  • At 11:30, we loaded up for the kids dentist appointment.  I was a little apprehensive about their appointments since my teeth are not stellar at all.  But all of them received a good report.  I even asked about our future with braces and he said we were good right now.  Nice to go to a dentist that you trust.
  • Robby met us there and everyone was very well behaved-well, I did sit in the waiting room so I figure they were good.  They did mention that they could tell Campbell was a mess and goodness, she sure is.  Whitman sat in his stroller the entire time and watched the fish and the movie and Keaton sat near me making sure that she didn't have to go to the dentist this time. 
  • After the dentist, we zoomed over to  Beebee's place to see her.  We couldn't find her but she was in the dining room finishing her lunch.  Campbell told her that she was ready to go to her room so we pushed her to her room.  Her friend showed up so we had plenty of people to talk to and the kids were better behaved today than they had been in a while.
  • When it was time to go, the other kids started giving Beebee hugs and Whitman started smacking his lips.  So, of course, I had to get him out of the stroller so he could smooch all over Beebee.  This, I am sure, made her day. 
  • Once at home, Anderson made his way outside to play nerf guns with the neighbor boys-of course, my sweet Anderson took out all of his nerf guns and new nerf gun bullets outside.  I felt like I had to stay on top of those boys since they do not treat their toys nicely so I sure didn't want for them to lose, break, steal Anderson's new stuff.  They didn't and I do think he came back in with all of his nerf bullets.  My boy had fun though and that is all that matters.
  • Campbell and Keaton were outside some and helped Robby with some leaves.  Graham and Reagan were in and out but did manage to watch a few movies.  When Anderson came in from playing outside, he climbed on in my bed and watched his moving.  He didn't change clothes first, he didn't take a shower first-Robby had to light candles since the boy was so stinky and of course, we had to wash our sheets.
  • I ran to my doctor's appointment and was quickly at the grocery store picking up a few items before heading home for supper.  Robby had fixed jambalaya for supper and it was spicy yet delicious.  He told the kids that the person with the cleanest dining area could earn a piece of candy so even though rice is usually a mess, tonight the floor/kitchen was pretty clean.  
  • They all received some candy and we played a game of Uno-Campbell won and then Keaton. The rest of us played and played trying to finish our cards but we finally had to stop since we ran out of time.  
  • After the game, we watched a Duck Dynasty (which I slept through) and then it was bedtime for the kids.
