No it's Thanksgiving...

That's what Jackson says. He wants it to be Christmas. I tell him it's Thanksgiving first, and he says, "No it's Thanksgiving." That's his way of being contrary. We had his Thanksgiving feast at preschool today, and I was so proud of him! He made an Indian headdress which he wore all day long at home while he played; a necklace; and the class made what we ate--turkey noodle soup, applesauce, and muffins with homemade jam. It was very cute. I have one more day of work tomorrow before Thanksgiving. I'm sad not to be going home for Thanksgiving, but I'm happy to celebrate all that I am thankful for! Especially my 2 babies...to think, last year at this time I was only a month or so pregnant. And now Savannah will be 4 months old on Thanksgiving, I can't believe it. I just moved her into size 3 diapers. Wow. She's my own personal butterball. :) And Jackson gets cuter by the day. His fave toy lately is LeapFrog's alphabet toy; you put the letters in and it makes a song about the sound that the letter makes. He is really learning his letters, it's great. Yes, Jackson, it IS Thanksgiving.

Family Dynamics

Things are changing again! JW is now the Freshman Girls Basketball coach at Valley Lutheran High School, so we now have a nanny/babysitter every afternoon but Tuesdays. Her name is Jessica, and she is really nice, and God has really blessed our family with how everything has worked out. I hope that this will help our family dynamics. Savannah is doing great, plump as ever, and I think Jackson is finally catching on that if he listens to Mommy and Daddy, things are much better. His current fave book is "Ten Apples Up on Top" by Dr. Seuss. He still watches Handy Manny and Monster Truck Mater; he's taking a break from Bob the Builder, and John Deere was recently resurrected. In other news, I bought a treadmill on Craigslist, so FitYummyMummy here I come!
