It’s 9:39 p.m.  The corn casserole and red velvet cupcakes (second batch) are in the oven.  Spinach dip is in the fridge.  It’s been a long and busy day that started after 7 a.m. … I decided to go to Walmart early for my cooking list of ingredients to avoid crowds.  Crowded stores really don’t bother me normally … unless I have a list.  When I have a long list of things to buy it makes it hard to stop to check my list if people are pushing me along 🙂 …  I’m going to have to look for some fat burners

Amanda came home last night so I brought the kids chickfila for breakfast.  We all jumped in and got the house cleaned up before heading to see New Moon.  I had a few reservations about taking Isabelle to see the movie.  The first was of course the content, having read New Moon I knew it was about vampires and werewolves, but also knew it was pretty mild.  The next was sitting up on the front row with her stroller.  We were happy to find out there was an elevator that took us to a higher seat level in the theater.  I took Isabelle’s food with me and fed her during the movie.  I was really glad I did, the movie was over two hours long!   Overall I think it was a perfect movie afternoon… Iz dozed a little and seemed happy to be with the group. 

Amanda’s boyfriend (Lorenzo) had a birthday Monday while they were still at school so she planned to cook him a special dinner today.  She made a roast with carrots and potatoes in the crock pot and a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting (shaped like a heart).   I made our meatless burgers for dinner and salad.  No roast for us 🙂 … Matt tried to convince Amanda to take Lorenzo a half of a heart cake.  No such luck. 

After another quick run to Walmart and getting izzy fed and ready for bed I knew it was time to get my cooking done.  We are heading to Tulsa in the morning and there really isn’t time to get much done except load the car and get everyone out the door.  

I’m hoping to go hit some black friday sales Friday early.  My main objective is to find 3 netbooks at a really good price.   Friday evening we are scheduled to have Thanksgiving dinner at mom and dad’s house.  My brother Mike and I have our traditional Thanksgiving trade planned.  I make extra spinach dip for him (really for Terri) and he brings me a pecan pie.  He’s the best!

I haven’t been writing on the blog much but a lot has been going on at school, at home, etc.  Izzy’s classroom is moving which is a good thing.  I helped Michele get the last of the last boxes and mr. fish.  I got slimed in the process. lol. 

We went with our church group to Dallas Saturday… left at 6:00 a.m. and returned right before midnight!  It was exhausting but fun!  Mom, Terri, and Melody came with me!  We literally shopped til we dropped.  I was determined to only buy Christmas gifts.  The only store that was tempting was J Crew. I had to just walk away!  I got some things for Amanda (she mostly wants clothes). 

I think I’m rambling so I’ll stop here 🙂

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a safe trip! Good luck with those black Friday sales. I’m staying home and getting a jump on my Christmas decorating. Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend and that pecan pie (yum!).
