Well hello all! I know it has been ages since I have written anything. It has just been a madhouse around here. First the car and then getting ready for Thanksgiving.
Well we got a rental car for a while since the car was totaled. We will be getting a check in the mail as soon as we send them the title for the car. But since it was a holiday, this all has to wait till tomorrow.
And in the meantime I have been cleaning the house like a mad woman. My sister and her husband came into town for Thanksgiving and to visit my father and stepmother in Colorado Springs. So my house needed to be spotless for them. Luckily we have a finished basement with a full bath and set it up for them. The only problem is that we don't have extra beds for guests. So she brought along a blow up mattress from home. Everything went swimmingly. They had their own space to retreat to, plus she only stayed with us overnight. Then we went to the Springs to visit my parents for the Big Turkey Day.
Turkey Day went pretty well. We had a ton of food. And everyone got along pretty well. D. got a bunch of presents from my parents for Xmas since we will be going to Kentucky for the Holidays. He got a "leather" motorcycle jacket, a kids laptop, some books, and a race car. Of course he likes the race car best. My sister gave him that one. Plus we brought his train set from home. He is obsessed with Thomas the Train and the movie "Cars" right now.
Then on Saturday my sister came back up to Denver before they left town. We all went to the Butterfly Pavillion. D. loves it. He thinks of the 'Shrunk " exhibit like a playground. We even got there in time to see the new butterflies released for the day.
So all in all we had a great time. My sister and I didn't have a single argument. It was wonderful.
I hope you all had as good a time as us. Hopefully my sis will email me some pics so I can post them.
