It is officially winter. We have a high temp this week of I think 45 degrees. The grass is still mostly green but the leaves are gone and the ground is super hard. There are occasional flurries but nothing has stuck yet and I don't know if it will. I am really hoping for a white Christmas this year. The anticipation of Thanksgiving and all of the Christmas preparations is starting to get too exciting for me. LOVE IT! :) We are looking forward to thanksgiving with the Wisdaps. Lily can't stop talking about Madeline and Lauren. (the kids will be better by then, I promise...) Jake is excited to see everyone except for you Christie. He said so... :) I think the marching thing scarred him for life!
Jacob is doing much better. We were able to keep pneumonia at bay so we are just treating him for bronchitis now. Hannah has been infected and Lily is still recovering from the nasty cold that she got last month. (The one downfall of winter...) The pharmacist now knows us by name. She asked Joe for all the kids birthdays today and he rattled them all off without stopping. She looked at him and said, "Wow, even without pausing." Joe replied that he was a good dad and then when she brought out the 5 prescriptions he responded "Oh, maybe I'm not a good dad. All the kids are sick." Gotta love it!
