The next day, I had a doctor's appointment (15 weeks) and got a great report! That afternoon the stomach virus, I think, hit hard. I had to cancel class and prayed that Ron and Ava would not be sick especially with Thanksgiving Day and out-of-town guests. Neither got sick. By Wednesday, I felt so much better and had to hustle to get the house clean and my dishes made (sweet & sour green beans, potato salad, and ambrosia since Brittany nixed it from our Christmas Eve menu;).
Ron's family came into town Thursday morning, and his mom went to my parents' house with us for Thanksgiving dinner. My sister, brother-in-law, nephew, aunt, uncle, and grandpa came too. We had lots of delicious food including a deep-fried turkey from Ron's new cooker. Brittany and I took our kiddos on a walk- the weather was awesome. After lunch the ladies sat around looking at Black Friday ads and talking. (I could kick myself for not getting pictures of my parents or a family pic!)
Britt and I met at 11:30 PM at Target. It was fun, and I finished shopping for Ava. Unfortunately, I didn't get nearly as much accomplished as I did the previous two years, so I'll be probably shopping 'til the last minute this year.
Ron's brother and sister-in-law came over Friday and Saturday night to visit with us, and they all left Sunday morning. The three of us crashed after church Sunday-- while Ron and Ava napped, I finished reading the book that I started the night before. There's nothing like reading a good book on a cold, rainy holiday weekend:)
