We have a very large family. My grandma had 11 children and many of them had at least 3 kids of their own. Now that we are all growing up, the family just keeps growing. My little sister's daughter will be lucky number 13 on the great grand baby list!
The rest of our weekend was full of Thanksgiving leftovers and football. We rooted for the Bears and they came through with a big win. Go Bears!We also spent time this weekend putting up a few Christmas decorations. My dad helped Alex hang lights on the house and set up the tree and my brother helped decorate with ornaments.
With Thanksgiving over, we have 3 full weeks before Christmas vacation. This means 3 full weeks of Stay-At-Home-Mom duties. Every week until now has been a short one for Alex, so I am a bit nervous without his help. We are very lucky that Eleanor came when she did so we have all these breaks and Alex gets to spend lots of quality time with his baby girl. Even with him at work, I will have my mom back next week with my big sister so I will have tons of help then. I am so lucky I don't have to do this all on my own. I know I could, but it takes so much of the pressure off knowing I have plenty of support. And Alex is always a quick phone call away if I need him. But wish me luck on my first full week by myself!
