Onward toward Christmas!

We arrived back home last night from our Thanksgiving trip to Kansas. It's good to be home. We had a nice visit with Morgan's family. Far too much football for me though! We don't have a tv in our upstairs livingroom so it's never a big part of our day. It's always overwhelming to me to have a tv on all the time. And it's a lot noisier with 4 extra children around! My niece and nephews are a rambunctious bunch when they are all together. Owen did have fun exploring all their toys, playing in the sandbox and running around with them.
We stayed in a hotel with my MIL and FIL. We had adjoining rooms so this made bedtime for Owen much easier than if we'd only had one room. It also eased a lot of the strain of staying at my SIL's house. It just gave everyone some down time and a break.
On Saturday we all went down to the Crown Center in Kansas City where the Hallmark Co is based. They had a fun creative exploratory place called Kaleidescope for the kids. They were able to use all kinds of recycled materials from Hallmark to make things. We had fun. Owen didn't make anything but he had fun running around and getting into stuff.
This week I've got to finish some collages for possible publication in a book so I may not be writing much until after Thursday.
I hope everyone (in the US) had a good Thanksgiving.
