A Crazy Thanksgiving!!

My Thanksgivings are aways a bit nuts because I have to work. We do a light up ceremony for Pensacola the day after Thanksgiving and it involves a few hundred children dressed as elves marching with Santa, the Mayor, etc! Events planning is NOT my favorite thing, so I always find it hard to relax at Thanksgiving. And I'm house sitting this year as well. So I ran in, ate, took a nap, and ran out on my poor family because the thought of total solitude was so alluring!!! I promise, I make up for it at Christmas with baking and present wrapping and fun!

I did make a yummy pumpkin cream cheese pie with a homemade gingersnap crust, though. And here are a few random snapshots from my quick visit home.

PS- Thanksgiving is also my Paw Paw's Birthday. He's 88 this year and informed us that he gets in trouble with the ladies at his retirement home because if he has lunch with one and dinner with a different one they think he's cheating! HA! My Ganny hasn't even been gone a year, but I guess when you're 88 there's no time to waste.

Also, please check out my Mama's Thanksgiving tree. Really, where would this world be without my mother???

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
