Today was a fine day; it contained all of the usual pre-holiday stuff. I cleaned the house. The kids and I rearranged the downstairs so that it is ready to receive the Christmas tree on Saturday. Some movies were returned and I did some shopping at Michael's. The fudge, peppermint bark and chocolate/almond candy is made and ready to go tomorrow. All in all, a pretty run of the mill day before Thanksgiving.

Two things delighted me today. Since it's late and I have to post before midnight, and since just telling you about my day doesn't seem like enough, I'll share my happiness with you.

#1. We were out this evening (all four of us) and we spent about 20 minutes in the car quoting The Emperor's New Groove. Everyone was quoting their favorite lines; one would lead to another. We were doing the voices and playing out whole scenes. There was much laughter.

#2. Matthew made the following statement: "I don't know how efficient James Bond is but when John and I are James Bond, we're very efficient. Until we get killed by the auto-turrets."

I love my family.

"like" and glad you got it in before midnight. I wish I had gotten one in every day. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

I was thinking how nice it must be to have 2 strapping young men in the house to help you move furniture when Andy's not home! Also James Bond is nothing if not efficient! :-)
