Life with the Bussis'- 11.27.15

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! We had a good one that started with a wonderful service at church. Thanksgiving is actually my favorite holiday, I think because there's no extra hoopla around it. :) And the Thanksgiving service at our church is one of my favorites. We always do a special food drive offering during the service. The first year we lived here I thought, okay, I'll just look through my cupboard and grab a few cans to bring. And then I was highly embarrassed by my few cans as families brought grocery bags full of food. :) I think I've played for every Thanksgiving service since we've been here and it's so neat to get to see everyone walk up to the front during offering and place their food on the stage. And yesterday was extra special as I got to watch Micah and David go up and put food up there (for some reason Jonathan just didn't feel like it I guess :), so Micah made 2 trips). After church we headed over to Steve's parents for turkey dinner with his parents, grandma and sister's family. We came home for naps (I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who actually slept :)), and then headed to the Bussis Thanksgiving (Steve's Dad's family) which was a lot of fun too. So it was a great day (and I didn't take a single picture :)). As for the rest of the week, we had a pretty good one.
The boys really do play so nice together. Well, I don't know if I should say play nice :), they really enjoy playing together :), a lot of the time that includes chasing each other, roaring at each other, and pushing each other off the couch. :) But given the fact that we are inside most of the time these days, it's nice that for the most part they get along.

My 3 handsome boys all ready for Bible Study
David is our silly little guy :). He seriously did this for at least 5 minutes straight. I don't know how he didn't get dizzy, I got dizzy just watching him :)

We made a trip to Meijer. I usually just go to the local grocery store in town, but we needed to get an Angel Tree gift and Meijer had some good sales going on, so we made a trip out of it. And I say a trip because my boys made it seem like an adventure. :) They first were super excited about the fake snow they had in the store. :) They were just amazed by it for some reason and thought the lit up snowman and Elmo was pretty cool. :)

And then they got to check out fish!! David was a little disappointed that there wasn't any Nemos there, but they still loved seeing the fish :)

And then, they got to go to the bakery and get a cookie! At our store they just get a generic Oreo cookie, here it was a bakery pumpkin cookie! This is one exciting store! :)

And then they got to top off their trip with a ride on the Sandy Horse!


So that was our fun morning outing, a trip to Meijer. :)

Micah and I went to the Christian high school's play Shrek the Musical with Steve's mom, sister, and Cousin Bentley! These boys were so good and seemed to enjoy the play. The students did a great job!

This was my view at breakfast Saturday morning (the point of this picture is for you to see what's in the background, although my children are pretty cute too :)). Yes, that's snow!

And just so he wasn't left out, this was my view to the side :)

There were 4 very excited people in our house (can you guess the one who wasn't excited :)?) They were asking to go outside as soon as they woke up and lucky for them their Daddy was willing to go with them. :)

Micah wanted to go with me to the store on Monday and I would be okay if he came with me every week, he was so helpful! I just had to point to what I needed and he got it off the shelf and put it in the cart. And he's pretty strong, he can handle the milk and even a 12 pack of soda! Made it so I didn't have to lift a lot. :)

Of course he wasn't a lot of help when we got home because we are getting new windows put in and they had just delivered them when we got home and he was way more interested in checking that out that helping bring the groceries in. :) And then while Steve and I were talking to one of the workers and not really paying attention to our 3 lovely boys, they decided to through every single shoe, coat, hat and gloves that we had in the hallway down into the basement. :) They thought it was fun until we told them they had to now bring every single one of the things they threw down up and put it back where it was suppose to be. :)

Our library has passes to the Children's Museum you can check out so we went with some friends this week which ended up being perfect timing to get us out of the house for a while while they're putting our windows in

The bubbles is always one of their favorite parts of the museum

Making flags

Getting to watch a video in the basement to get out of the workers way :)
We had to bring a dessert to the Bussis dinner so the boys helped me make Oreo dessert. They thought it was pretty fun to get to use the food processor (and since I only have a mini, it took 3 times to crush all the Oreos so they all got a turn at running it :))

Smashing down the crust

Mixing up the pudding filling. They did an excellent job, it was delicious!!

And it's moments like this that make me realize how incredibly blessed I am and cause me to pause and thank the Lord for the beautiful family He has given me! A loving husband who is a wonderful father to our 3 precious boys!!
