Christmas Festival

Yesterday all of us went to the local Christmas Festival. It was a lot of fun. Son is old enough to enjoy himself with the rides, and I was so happy to go on the rides with him. I even went into a big bounce house. It's fun reliving your childhood. After that son tested his strength, shot some hoops, and little daughter played two simple games that won her prizes. She loved listening to the music and running around on the field. Husband and I were overjoyed to see our kids so happy and carefree. They loved spending time with the two of us at a special event like this. Son met Santa too, and got hugs from both him and Mrs. Santa/Mama Claus. He was so star struck he was speechless and a bit shy. I thought it was cute. 

I can't believe Thanksgiving is this week! I feel like I have so much to do, and I'm not even hosting it. Husband is making Jambalaya and his self-created Volcano Cake, and I'm making Deviled Eggs and Roasted Butternut Squash (with thyme and blue cheese). Yummy! I could have made dessert too, but many people are on a diet, and Husband is already bringing a very rich one.  Christmas Eve I'll bring something else, but don't ask me yet as I don't know.
