Happy Thanksgiving!

I have just a short time to write today, squeezed in right before I tackle cleaning the bathrooms, putting away the laundry, and prepping my house for company this week.

Overnight Trip

I spent Sunday night in Park City with seven of my kids.  We had a free night that had to be used and DH and the older kids couldn't miss school.  So it was just me and the younger ones.  And it's funny, but seven kids doesn't seem like that many to me.  We had a great time.  We drove up an hour before sunset and the drive was lovely.  I didn't bring my camera and I was kicking myself as the light burst beautifully through the clouds, illuminating the snow-covered landscapes we drove through.  But it was nice to enjoy anyway.

I had planned on sledding on Monday morning, but we woke up to snowy, windy weather that worried me about the roads.  So we headed back home sooner than planned, but halfway home the sun was out and the wind had died down.  So we stopped in Midway at a park for some sledding and snowmen building.

We had a blast.  Cami was so excited to be running around in the snow.  When we finally left, her pants and shoes were covered in an inch of the sticky snow and she told me, "I need new pants, Mommy!"

We stopped on the way home for donuts, then I let most of the kids play hooky from school for the rest of the day.

Harmony, our resident artist, has been creating Thanksgiving art for us for weeks.  My kitchen is full of hand-drawn turkeys and artwork like this:

Happy Thanksgiving!
