Happy Thanksgiving

Nice and relaxing … that pretty much sums up our day. Jack was feverish last night - with temps ranging 100.1 - 100.4 bobbing up and down for an hour and then finally settling in at 99. Tibor, the super star he is, got up several times in the middle of the night to make sure his temp didn’t creep back up. (100.4 is when we need to call the doctor) 
This morning and early afternoon we lounged around the house, the boys played games and there was some intermittent brawling going on, Tibor watched Space Odyssey something or other and I ran to the store picking up a few groceries for the feast I was planning on preparing. We watched Planes later on in the afternoon - which I give a 3 out of 5 stars. It was ok, not my favorite movie. For dinner I made ham, (Chase’s choice of meat) mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing and some home made dinner rolls. For desert, we had good ole, no fail pumpkin pie. 

Jack has a few sores in his mouth and more down his throat so he really didn’t eat much today. Cold drinks and Luden’s throat drops have kept the sores somewhat manageable today. He has labs tomorrow, so I’ll have the nurse take a look and see what she suggests. They have a “magic mouthwash” prescription that is really supposed to help out, we might need to try that out. Other than that, nothing else exciting going on in our home. 

I’m hoping tomorrow Tibor will cut down the apple tree in our backyard. The apples are nothing special and it makes a huge mess, right along with the asian pear tree. Good grief, talk about bees this past summer. So if anyone is interested in some apple wood for smoking, let us know and we’ll save the logs. 

Below, Jack and Tibor are playing a game of Ancient Greek Battleship. 

Today I’m thankful for:
- My awesome coworkers at Duncan Aviation - your card and gift made our Thanksgiving super special. Thank you so much!
- FaceTime - it was great to see both our families. I think Jack was a bit sad we didn’t make it to Tibor’s family. I told him that maybe in the next week or two we can squeeze in a trip north to the farm in Wynot. He loves exploring the barns, checking on the cows and playing with the dog. 
- Spending time together as a family. There is never a dull moment having 2+1 boys in this house. Tonight the basement was converted into a RC track and now I’m pretty sure Chase and Jack are playing hockey in Jack’s bedroom. What’s that saying — Keep Calm and Carry On!
