...and This Writer notes that they are in serious need of haircuts before then.

Ever seen the A&E's channel show "Hoarders"? Now you don't have to. This was a free preview.

Here's what we've been up to...
The boys themselves have all enjoyed parties in their classes at school and Doodlebug had more festivities going on than I could even keep up with!
The Polar Express on the big silver screen in 3-D which was too fun.
We even made some reindeer food (made of oatmeal, birdseed and glitter)
to help sustain Santa's help on Christmas Eve.
We are all set to slow down...just 1 "Happy Birthday Jesus Party", 1 Christmas Eve service, 2 more nights of Hannukah, 1 potluck with neighbors and 1 Christmas morning to go!
...and a cookie swap tonight where I will bring these yummy
Double Peanut Butter cookies....
and with one bite my husband is going to fall in love with me all over again....
"I don't seep, I don't have my White BeeBee..."

the boys settling in for the first fire - they wanted hot dogs and marshmallows to roast
but this Writer was ill-prepared
...and the boys are learning all about Thanksgiving in school
the boys trying to take one simultaneously-smiling picture. Didn't happen.
And new pajamas and socks brought HUGE comfort to all 5 of us.
It's the small things in life, isn't it?
Daylight Saving Time changed the evenings here and we all head upstairs for the bedtime routine
(which still takes aound 45 minutes, start to finish)
at around 7:15 nowadays,
a far cry from the late-night Sonic ice cream sundae runs and park playdates of summer evenings.
Colds and coughs are a weekly occurance lately and
we are keeping Tylenol in business single-handedly.
But this week is THANKSGIVING
and there is so very, very much to be thankful for.
Not the least of which are my three very noisy, shrieking, tumbling, breathlessly laughing boys.
BEST QUOTES OF THE WEEK:
"He's like R2-D2 and I'm like C-3PO." - Doodlebug, after translating his little brother's request into English for me
"Seriously. Mama. I'm FOUR. Seriously." - Honey Monkey, negotiating to get out of a nap
"...and Mater." - Little Bunny, ending a list of his best friends with a Disney Cars movie character
