    I got 5 hours of nap time over the 4 days and only had to give one message…

    Only 8 around our table this year (6 Dunagans + 2 extras). Lots of leftovers, all in the freezer. No shopping, yet. But YAY!!! We got out all the boxes, which made a huge mess and “obligated” us to tackle the project . . . and now we’re already all decorated for Christmas (about a week before usual, and I feel like I got a huge “jump start” on the season)!!!

    Thanks for your note on my blog. God’s abundant love for orphan kids is amazing.

    Love you!

    Bo, thanks for that awesome message at 9am this morning. Kind of funny that I have been thinking that very thing a lot lately (have you been in my brain, which could be kink of scary, no?) and I was sure it was all directed at me but totally in love. 😉

    Glad you’re Thanksgiving was all good. You can check out pictures of my humongous family and our fantastic Thanksgiving on my blog(!).

    I love your stats for Salads consumed. Ha! And the one for Starbucks trips- even better! My stats would look something like this-

    Kids sick- 2
    Turkey consumed- I made chicken
    Minor 3 year old meltdowns- 2
    Major 3 year old meltdowns- 0 (WOW!)
    Starbucks trips- 4
    Turkey (Chicken) Sandwiches- 2
    Happiness Factor- 500,986,328

    P.S. Random- Have you ever seen Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy? It is the weirdest funniest movie. Its funnier the 2nd time around, because you know how random it will be. For some reason I thought of it, and then thought of you. Not sure why….
