This past weekend my little family of three spent some time together. We did some shopping, rode the carousel in the mall, ate out lunch at Noodles & Company, played toys (including this awesome barn we've had in storage), built tents, read books, and made a snow globe. Mike's parents bought this barn long ago with intentions of a possible son of his to play with. Fast forward 15-20 years later, and our little Sullivan is loving life with his big red barn.
For the past month, Sullivan has been ecstatic about Santa. He loves seeing Santa signs and figurines in stores, on TV, pretty much anywhere he spots the jolly fella he's screaming "Santa Mommy, Santa!" I can't wait to see his reaction when he meets the big guy next month. I'm sure he might rethink his excitement.
With that being said, take time over Thanksgiving to say a few prayers. Prayers of thanks for all that you have in this wonderful life, prayers for all those suffering and not with their loved ones over the holidays, and prayers for an easy winter. I do like the white stuff, but would much rather have it fall gently and not is large consumptions.
