It was great having five days off to recoup. The school where I work for was out Wednesday instead of just Thursday. I needed those days, especially because Wednesday night I got sick! I have a horrid head cold and no voice. I have been dubbed Chipmunk because I squeak when I talk. It could always be worst. Lexi from Muzungu Mama Ministries and her daugter both have malaria! So I don't feel okay with whining about a silly little cold.
Thanksgiving was okay. I loved seeing friends and family. It was nice getting to know my cousins fiance a little better. My other cousin is 32 (almost) weeks pregnant and looks amazing. She is simply glowing. The little cousins are not so little anymore and the family is still growing. I was so proud of myself because I only cried twice that day and only hid in the bathroom once (high five for me). Sometimes its hard being around family because my heart knows that my two little ones are missing. I wish I was about to pop (Riley's due date was 12/27/11) or even just a glorious 12 weeks pregnant with Brielle. But I guess God has different plans for me.

Now we are into the Christmas season. Always remember The Reason for the season :)
