The kids are feeling better but they still have yucky coughs. We're supposed to have rain for the next couple of days so we got to the park this morning to play before we are stuck inside. The leaves were beautiful. The kids gathered them like they were treasures. They each made their own pile and threw them up in the air (and at each other) before we left.

AND, I got the best phone call this morning. We are renting a house in Tahoe for Thanksgiving with our good friends The Barretts, and Michael called to say that he and little Maeg ARE COMING WITH US!!! We had hoped they'd be able to come and they both got off work :) :) :) It's rare to have all four kids home together. I can't remember the last time, if ever, that we've been away, all six of us. We are so happy they're coming! When I got his call I hung up and smiled, I had a total Mom moment.  Just knowing that our family will be together, all of us, is making me smile ear to ear. It's going to be a special trip.
