I am here in the kitchen at just after 8pm on Saturday night and my house is dead quiet. It's actually kind of spooky.
I've had a very full day today and I arrived home a little bit ago to an empty house. I met up with my Mom and Shell this afternoon in Toledo for a service at the funeral home for those who've lost someone this year in anticipation of the holidays. It was very nice and I was glad to be able to go which was made possible by my very wonderful husband who has had the kiddos all day. Because not only was I able to go to the service, but he had them earlier in the day so that I could finish off our Christmas shopping. I am SO thankful that I didn't have to do that with Thing 1 and Thing 2 in tow. While I had somewhat of a plan of what I was after it was nice to be able to take my time and get what I wanted.
So for today and all those other times when he is so good about spending some Daddy time with them, HUGE KUDOS to Grant. He is a fabulous Daddy which I sometimes think he doesn't hear quite enough. Today they got to go to Home Depot to do the Kid's Workshop and I noticed when I pulled in the driveway tonight that they hung the Christmas lights outside. Knowing how tough it can be to corral them some days I'm impressed :) Love you, babe!
