How is it looking for you?

Ours will be fairly busy,   This morning I get my car back from the car hospital.   Then DH and I are going to the shoooting range.

Tomorrow the DDs and boy friends are coming over for dinner, looking forward to it, first time since DD1's surgery to be all together.

Next Sunday the family is walking in the Komen Race for the Cure.

A three day weekend the week before Thanksgiving to celebrate our 32nd anniversary.  Because of the journey we have been on this year it  will be our first time getting away so are extremely looking forward to it.

Have a Thanksgivng dinner at the vet center,  a Thanksgiving pot luck at work. before the real Thanksgiving.

Going out for Thanksgiving this year, usually we host but DH's dad and step-mother want to this year so we will be going to a restaurant, probably come back here for dessert afterwards.

4 day weekend for Thanksgiving.

Things are getting less crazy at work back to 35-40 hours a week rather than 45-50.

Good luck on the college visits and band competition!</p>

We didn't make finals in the band contest. :(  It was a long shot to make finals anyway, but we were more than a bit disappointed. It was the last ever marching contest for the Seniors, so they were a little reminiscent.

That is one of the reasons I love Thanksgiving, Christmas and the rest of the holidays each year, everybody in the kitchen making the traditional favorites and often new things too.  I love when my mom pulls out the recipe box, the handwritten notes in the sideline and the stains on the pages.  I love that my kids are a part of the same thing I was a part of as kid, tradition and family memories, priceless.

I'm sorry sav, we just recently had the "first" of our lasts with my senior and I was a little teary eyed over the event.
