The great thing about being a mom is that I have learned to adjust, adapt, think on my feet, change things up, throw caution to the wind, try new things, laugh often, sing out loud and call it a great adventure!
The past two weeks things were a bit on the "out of sorts" times that life likes to surprise you with...
but thankfully I was thinking clearly
I refused to surrender to feeling overwhelmed by the holiday
I simply could not see myself cooking an entire Thanksgiving meal with a kitchen out of service!
I knew when to pick up the phone and book reservations at a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner
then I texted my darling husband, who was in Dubai, and told him my brilliant idea
I ran upstairs to tell the chickadees that we are going to be wild and crazy...
we are go out for dinner
I did get a few puppy dog looks from a certain chickadee
sweet words that melts a mothers heart....
oh I'll miss your sweet potatoes
I rewarded her with a twirl hug and praise that I am raising a brilliant child
I did have a bit of teenage grumbling from another
she was rewarded with a double twirl hug....
teenagers need lots and lots of hugs...
they can't grumble and be hugged at the same time
pinky promise it works every time!!!
and not to be lost in all the twirling that was going on
I received two cheers of joy from my littlest two because I used the word adventure in describing our Thanksgiving meal!
They were properly rewarded with double D...
that's code for double dessert in our house for going above and beyond in having outstanding behavior, acts of kinds, having helping hands...
all that good stuff that makes me sing louder, twirl longer and thank God for my four blessings!
The change was just what we needed....
I'm absolutely ready for Christmas
the decorating has officially begun
shopping is well underway
meal planning is in the works...
I will be cooking for Christmas!
Can I get a triple grande extra hot skinny latte for that!!!
I'm determined to work my magic and make sure my kitchen is back up and running
I'm a believer!!!!!
Here's to spreading good cheer and I look so forward to sharing my holiday's with all of YOU!!
