Please forgive me for belated Happy Thanksgiving wishes dear blog readers. I hope that each of you that take time out of your busy day to read my little blog know that you are greatly appreciated and blessing in my life.
The reason for my tardiness in posting this week's blog is due to family - such a great reason for tardiness :o)
Wednesday right after school, we picked up the kiddos and made the trek north to Fairbanks to spend the holiday with Leif's parents. The roads were not the best and we appreciated the prayers from friends and family who knew we were traveling. The kids did great which makes the trip so much better. The picture above is a view of the sunrise from the in-laws' house. So breath taking...
Future floor installer!
The in-laws had a project for Leif to assist with. They took up the carpet in their dining room and installed a laminate wood flooring. The floor looks great and Lukkas really enjoyed helping bring pieces to Leif.
The kids also had fun helping Grandma clean up the floor!
What better way to end a busy day? Stories from Grandma and Pope. I'm sure I've blogged why Leif's dad is called Pope - but here's the story again. Leinna was listening to Leif talk to his dad and Leif calls his dad Pop. So, when Leinna tried to say "Pop" and it came out as "Pope" we laughed and it has been his name since.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are blessed to be able to make the trip to spend time with our family.
The kids did great on the drive home today. It's hard to see, but the kids are holding hands - so stinking cute! They did a great job traveling home today. The drive is about 6 hours with the roads being a little icy and needing to make longer potty breaks so the kids can move around and such. I'm so thankful they traveled well - makes the trip so much more enjoyable.
We had beautiful skies on the drive home today.
Feeling rested and ready to tackle the next 3 weeks before Christmas Break!!
