Thanksgiving was good this year. The holidays seem "normal" so far this year. It's the first year since Scott died that my emotions weren't all over the place. I was also able to be thankful this year. I haven't felt "right" being thankful because how can you be thankful when your baby is not here? But this year I realized I am so thankful for my family and friends. I am so fortunate my family the past two years has grown closer and really stepped up and worked together with everything that has happened with scott and my mom getting a liver transplant. I am also thankful that C has such great role models. I also realize how thankful I am for my friends which also include my Share friends. C insisted on taking popcorn, jellybeans and toast to Thanksgiving dinner just like Snoopy and gang made for their dinner. He is now obsessed with Snoopy.
We always decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving and that was not so bad either for the first time in two years. I was happy doing it. I had a moment when getting the stockings out but other than that...It was just a good long weekend with my husband, C and Elvis.
My inlaws have been trying to be a downer for our weekend but I wouldn't let them and my husband is trying hard not to let them. But that's nothing new there...just really frustrating and annoying. Just wish we could cease contact with them. Life would be so much more peaceful.
Now back to routines tomorrow and normal bedtimes.
I'm glad that you were able to enjoy this Thanksgiving a bit more this year. Yay for keeping crazy in-laws at bay! I love that C brought popcorn and jelly beans:) Oooh, C would love Knott's Berry Farm and Camp Snoopy, road trip?
I'm glad to hear that you were able to enjoy Thanksgiving this year. Sounds like you guys had a lovely weekend. Glad to hear you were able to keep in-law negativity to a minimum.
I love that Colin is into Snoopy!!!! Those were my favorite holiday cartoons.
I'm glad your not letting your in laws ruin things for you. I guess I will have to be the one to take pictures of Charlie watching Snoopy cartoons. :P
Glad you had a wonderful time with you family I sure do miss you!!!
I can vaguely remember the first holidays I was able to actually enjoy after Arianna died. I remember feeling a brief panic and then some relief that the fear and anxiety wasn't present.
I LOVE that C brought his snoopy inspired treats to dinner. Sounds just like my Keira. :) Hopefully you and my monster will meet in Chicago. I am within driving distance.
