Happy Saturday after Thanksgiving! We are still in the midst of a wonderful holiday but I wanted to pop in to say hello!
We spent a great Thanksgiving Day with Dan's brother and his family! It was a nice change from our regular routine. Although I missed the smell of a roasting turkey wafting through my house, it was nice not to have to worry about making sure everything was done at the same time...or facing a huge mess in my small kitchen!
Yesterday morning, Nathan and I (mom and son time) went to the Christmas Made in the South craft show that comes to Jacksonville every year! It's always the weekend after Thanksgiving and I've managed to make it every year since I've been in Jax (15 years now!)...even during chemotherapy!
In addition to that, we are finally able to attend our parishes Thanksgiving Retreat sponsored by the Sisters and Brothers of the Home of the Mother! We attended yesterday afternoon's festivities which included an adult formation talk on the writings of Pope Benedict XVI "Year of Faith", mass/confessions, a rosary walk, a pizza dinner and a family movie (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory). The kids had a ball. The retreat continues today and I will have pictures to share with you when we come home!
Tomorrow I will tackle the laundry that has been piling up since Tuesday! Nathan serves mass at 6pm so we will have the entire day to get back to our routine.
I hope you all are enjoying your Thanksgiving weekend! See you soon!
