This morning I took Rebekah and her boys to the airport (they're flying home to Colorado for a week and a half). Myrtle was sweet and came over and watched Keenan and Moriah while I did that - and apparently had a blast!
After that, we buzzed over to Fort Walton Beach to drop off a meal for a friend who just had a new baby, then to the post office (but, duh, it's a holiday, so they were closed), and then back home to meet up with my friend Becky for lunch. You may remember Becky (of John and Becky) - they used to live here at Eglin and about a year ago moved to the DC area. John is rotating at the hospital for a couple months so Becky came down to spend some time with him. It was Great to see her, and we had lunch at Cracker Barrel, where I was able to get something that sort of resembled a Thanksgiving dinner - yay!! =0) It was also super exciting to get to talk about their adoption news, and their son, Joshua, who is waiting for them in Korea right now!
On a random note - Cracker Barrel had all their Christmas stuff out, and while I was waiting in line to pay, I ended up buying two Christmas ornaments! (Philip, if you're reading this - they were only $2.99 each!)
After lunch, we came home, Moriah napped, and then we headed out, on my "quest for pumpkin pie". This has always been a part of Thanksgiving, and I was suddenly craving it! After several calls to bakeries, checking several restaurant dessert menus online, and a visit to Publix... No pumpkin pie!! Oh well, we settle for huge M&M cookies for the kids and a fresh apple fritter for me. We hung out at Uptown Station and played at the park, and then walked all around (which was perfect for tiring the kids out), and then came home, and the kids are off to bed.
Just talked to my man in St. Louis - and I will be hitting the hay soon... Happy Thanksgiving....zzzzz
I posted a couple of these because, while the flash actually worked properly in this first one, I was talking, Keenan was frowning, Moriah was missing... and my favorite part - the lady in the background totally looks like she's posing! =)
Okay, here we all are - now at the end of our meal (since the waitress wanted to try again after cutting Moriah out of the first one) =)
