  • Julie spent lots of time with family.
  • Julia went Black Friday shopping in Maine. It also snowed in MA so she got to go sledding.
  • Julia and Leila had Thanksgiving dinner at Angela’s brother’s house with 5 courses – sherbet, soup, pasta and salad, turkey dinner and dessert.
  • Grace got new boots and a dress from her grandma.
  • Breanne went to see Mockingjay with her friends friends and Julie and Jimmy. Her gram and grandpa made 5 pies just for her, because she loves pie. But she didn’t eat nearly as much as they had hoped. She also had a super easy day at work because the snow made everyone stay home so she got paid to talk on the phone. Pretty sweet!
  • Ben got to spend the day on Friday with Brittany.
  • Leila learned how to make pizzelles with her soon-to-be step mom and they were delicious (we know, because she brought a bunch in).
  • Brittany got to hang out with friend who lives in VT.
  • Gabriel got to spend time with Patrick and Bethany before Patrick left for the Navy.
  • As for me? Well, it’s been one heck of a weekend. Lots of chapters closing and new ones opening. It’s exciting and sad all at the same time. One of the things I had to do this weekend was move some of the furniture out of my grandmother’s house because it’s sold. Don’t get me wrong, I’m beyond pumped to have her dining room set and living room tables, it’s beautiful furniture, but leaving that area of Jersey was hard. I was done with the weekend around 10am on Saturday and the work hadn’t even begun. All I wanted to do was curl up and watch a christmas movie – How The Grinch Stole Christmas to be exact. Not the new crappy one, the old classic. Well, God heard my prayer because while I was driving home listening to Christmas music on Pandora the ENTIRE Grinch story came on! Songs and everything! Ugh, perfect.
  • Also, I just came home to a check for $40 I didn’t even know about! So there’s that.
