Thanksgiving {2012}

Well I just wanted to tell you all thank you for the love and support from my last post it is much appreciated, my Dad seems to be doing much, much better but there is still a long haul ahead.
I think it is time to catch up on the end of November!
We had been planning a long trip to visit Robert's family in Texas for Thanksgiving. The day before we left Elena started puking - great. Then Robert got up in the middle of the night with the stomach bug too. We decided to pack up, grab some medicine, an extra trash can just in case and hit the road. Thank goodness there was no puking in the car but Robert felt terrible - even when I was driving. We hit some horrible traffic in Ft. Worth and gave up (even though we had about 8 more hours til our destination!) We scored an awesome hotel that had a beautiful view so it was actually a nice stop:
In the morning everyone seemed to be feeling better and I (thank goodness) didn't wake up sick. We hopped in and started the rest of a very long drive. It was so awesome to have hardly any traffic on the roads! Elena kept busy with her little desk we brought for coloring and crafts and Dominic slept a lot.
We made decent time and made it to Robert's brother's house right in time for an early dinner! Yay! Everyone was so excited to see Elena and meet Dominic. Robert's Mom picked up D and started crying - it was too sweet! By the way, he is the only grand-baby who will be carrying on the family name!

We had a fun relaxing rest of our day just hanging out with family.
Turkey/milk coma ;)
Little did we know that the fun was just beginning -- yep, you guessed it, I got that nasty stomach bug that night and apparently so did the ENTIRE rest of Robert's family! Yikes, what a gift to bring with us! I felt terrible for getting everyone sick but at least it was only a 24 hr bug! And at least we got it out of the way at the beginning of the trip, right?! ;)



I have gotten so far behind on blogging and honestly just haven't really been up to posting the past couple of weeks. It's not that there hasn't been much going on since I last posted, we've had a long vacation to Texas, Thanksgiving, my first experience at a Quinceanera, a visit to the beach, Elena's Christmas program, Dom's first solid food, Illuminations, and even more... But my Dad has been having some very serious health issues lately and that has been taking a priority right now. I don't know if I will really get into what has been happening on this blog but I did want to acknowledge it and ask for prayers. Prayers for strength and healing for my Dad as well as for the rest of our family, especially for my Mom who has also been very overwhelmed lately. There is a long road ahead of us but we just have to have faith and believe that everything is going to be ok. Thank you.
