Side note before I begin: my grandbabies are - in my not-so-humble opinion - the most adorable babies on Earth and I really hoped to capture the essence of their fabulousness by taking a couple hundred pictures of them hoping to get one or two framers and a Christmas card photo. And then ultimately, in the end my favorite pictures are the ones where they're both confused or overwhelmed or when Nana has crazy eyes from trying to be animated enough for the babies to smile because those are how life really is with two babies. Such a crazy kind of wonderful! All of these pictures have already been shared on Facebook.
I'll start with the part I know several of you are concerned with... we don't have results back from my mom's biopsy last week. I thought we were going to hear something yesterday but it turned out that yesterday was the earliest we would have heard and... they're not in yet. Other than that... and a migraine that is making itself a bit too much at home in my head... we had a lovely Thanksgiving.
We did our traditional Thanksgiving dinner at home and Austin/Tasha/Cosette, Jim/Angie/Sarabeth/Jamie and Aunt Ginger/Uncle Carl joined us. We had 8 pies for 12 people. I did my dead level best to not let them go to waste. Instead they went to waist... mine. Cosette wore an adorable little outfit and I took about a hundred pictures of her in it because she was so durn cute. Hardly any pictures of anyone else there... no food pictures... just pictures of Cosy in her outfit.
Her pacifier and Nana's phone made everything better, as per usual.
I promise other people were there. Here's a picture of my mom and her two sisters:
This week I am preparing for Dental Drama Part Deux which I'm assured is not going to be nearly as traumatic or painful. I hope not. One tooth that the dentist thought he could save isn't going to work so that one has to come out. It's in the same part of my jaw where he had a hard time getting two others out last time (which is why I was in so much stinking pain). He's got a game plan for there to be less trauma this time but the anxiety is definitely higher for me this go around. Then in January he'll pull the ones that have to come out on the other side and THEN he'll start building up the ones we can save. I'll say it again... I love my dentist. He's really put a lot of time and thought into this. The girls in his office are really sweet and they work hard to keep me comfortable.
I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday and was supposed to have a lab appointment this morning but I didn't feel up to driving with the headache and had a couple of swigs of gatorade this morning before I remembered/realized that I was having lab work done. We'll do lab and doctor on Thursday.
And I guess that's about it for now. I'll update with more news on my mom whenever we get it and I've got some Christmas decorations going up this week. Austin and Tasha and Cosette are moving in with us this week... more about that next time! Love and hugs, y'all!
