Our Thanksgiving Day...

Our day dawned bright and early with the exciting hum of the Nebulizer. Yes, Sophia was wheezing like an 80year old chain smoking asthmatic. We started the treatments and are doing the 5am, 1pm, and 9pm routine for now reserving the right to change and do the 5-11-5-11 plan. After her treatment and subsequent buzz wore off, I accidently (oh, who am I kidding?) fell asleep.lol My Thanksgiving day restarted at the ripe hour of 10am. Yikes! That got me in gear.lol I got dinner started and set the older kids to bringing in the Christmas tree and decorations. The littles were overexcited and my living room can attest to that.lol

I made the executive decision to have the kids begin the annual Gingerbread house assembly. Nothing says gingerbread like the sound of a hair dryer...feel the fun folks...

I'm breaking up the excitment into two parts because I don't want to overwhelm you all with our exciting day...

It's the only way to put a gingerbread house together in one day.LOL I saw this on The Food Network's Challenge series. All the professionals used hair dryers.LOL

It came out very nice and the fun pictures of your kids are great.
