Three years ago today, we met and held our son for the first time. It was Thanksgiving Day, 2007. The best Thanksgiving Day ever. . .aside from the beef tongue that was part of our dinner. . .Looking back, Aidan has grown so much since then! It's hard to imagine how much. . .
Aidan has started this funny thing. . .it's awesome really. . .at any given moment, he'll say, Mama? yes. . .I love you! I love you, too, Aidan. Even in the middle of the night. I love it. He's always said I love you. But, lately it's been all the time. Out of the blue. Whenever the words come into his head. I just love it!
I did get the family room curtains done yesterday and all I have to do is hem the kitchen curtains. I think I may need to shorten the family room ones, but that can wait. For now, here's a little before and after on that project:
So, the house has been scrubbed. We're stocked with turkey, and all the makings for a huge Thanksgiving feast. My dad arrives today and Aidan will be at school all day today and a half day tomorrow. Aunt B and UB arrive on Wednesday evening and the cooking will commence on Wednesday all day. Feast time will be about 2:00 on Thursday.
Finally, I look longingly at this fall addition I made. . .judging by the cat hair I have been removing from the seat, Cleo is the only one using this wonderful chair. I am sooooo looking forward to curling up with a good book in it. . .someday!
