Most of these things started early in the month and by the time we got to Thanksgiving week, I was in need of a break. Both Seth and Maggie attend school at different districts, which took the entire week of Thanksgiving off. I decided to take Monday-Tuesday as sick days just to spend some time with my grandchildren. It gave me a much needed boost and when Amy passed away, I was so glad that I had put my priorities in order. When she passed, I was so very thankful I chose 2 extra days with my grandchildren instead of working.
Here is a brief rundown of how our days went:
Leslie dropped Maggie and Sophie off at my house Monday morning on her way to work. We loaded up the Jetta and headed up to Gatesville where we picked up Seth.

Later that day, we drove home to Temple. After spending some time playing around the house, we decided to go to the Railroad Museum Park. It is one of the nicest parks in Temple, and the kids love playing there. We stayed all afternoon, and left only because it was getting dark and the kids were getting hungry.

We spent the evening watching movies, snuggled up on the couch. When they were ready for bed, they fell asleep so quickly because they were worn out.
The next day, we went to Belton and played along the creek near the Cotton Gin. We took some bread to feed the ducks, snacks to eat, and introduced Boomer to the ducks. He was pretty good around them!
That evening, Seth and the girls were picked up by their mothers. I hated to see them go home, but knew Thanksgiving was just a day away.
