December already....

Where does the time go??? I can remember when I was younger and I thought an hour felt like an eternity...nowadays an hour feels like a minute. Thanksgiving came and went so fast. We had a wonderful time at the cabin and a lot of great food to eat.

We went shopping on Black Friday and got a few deals. The one funny moment was when I told one of the younger sales clerks that I was from Gettysburg and he asked "Virginia?" *HUH???*** Guess they don't teach the kids from Altoona about the Gettysburg Address and the Battle of Gettysburg?? Or maybe I just remember all of this from school because I grew up with it in my back yard?***

Hayley succeeded to give Brayden a bloody nose on Saturday (I'm sure the first of many!!) They were playing nicely rolling the ball on the ground and tossing it back and forth when Hayley decided she was going to give it a little more forces and *POW* right at his nose. It did not bleed initially and after about 3 minutes of consoling Brayden then Hayley yells,

"Mama, there is blood on Brayden's nose".

I then said, "You better apologize to your brother and give him a hug".

Through tears she proceeded to apologize and gave him a hug. She was so upset with herself and continued to cry and cry and cry.

Finally I said, "Hayley what is wrong? It was an accident?"

She replies, "Mama, am I going to go to jail??" Bless her heart..she was so upset that she hurt her brother and gave him a bloody nose that she thought she was going to go to jail.

All & all we had a wonderful long weekend at the cabin. Even baby Mady didn't need much time to adjust to being in a quaint little place with LOTS of family at one time.

Before we know it...December will be over and it will be 2009
