So first thing to update you on is VERY excited. I received my first award! I feel quite honored!
I am supposed to recite the below and then pass this fantastic award onto eight other bloggers who make me smile every time I read what they have to say. Thank you so much to Summer for thinking of me!"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
My awardees are:
The Life of Emily
The Heart of Life in Oklahoma
Sugar N' Spice and Mostly Nice
The Doctors Wife
Thanksgiving was a huge success...mainly due to my fantastic mother and mother-in-law! Sure, I hosted and cooked the turkey, but they provided most of the sides and did most of the clean up! I always feel guilty when other people clean at my house, but not quite guilty enough to stop them and let me do it. My mom and sister stayed the night and we hung out all day Friday which was so fun. My dad was supposed to come, but he ended up going to Florida to see his dad. He isn't doing very well and it made sense for him to be there. I'll post more about that later, but thankfully for now everyone is doing ok and we are just waiting to see what the next course of action is. Back to Thanksgiving...we had a packed house, Kody's grandma, Kody's parents and sibling and my mom and sister...plus Bailey and Midoir....yikes! The dogs were very well behaved. I was quite pleased with both of them. I've had my fill on pumpkin and potatoes. Now it is time to decorate for Christmas! Bring on the yuletide cheer!
Exciting Upcoming December Topics:
Kody's Surgery Rotation
Britney's Documentry on MTV last night (score!) and new CD
SEC and Big 12 Championship games on Kody's birthday
On Saturday we went to Bartlesville to hang out with Kody's family and watch some football. I asked Kellen (Kody's youngest brother) what he wanted to for Christmas. Here is a fake transcript of our conversation:
Me: Kellen, tell me what you want for Christmas right now.
Kellen: A nephew.
Me: Ummm, I don't think that is going to happen this Christmas. What if we gave you a niece?
Kellen: I would drop kick it and send it back. Now get to work on my nephew.
