It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

Thanksgiving Weekend

Wow, the weekend is over! We had a great Thanksgiving week. It was so nice to have Mike home all week too. Mike's sister Teresa and her family came in on Tuesday for the Holiday. We had a great visit and spent lots of time together. The kids enjoyed playing with their cousins. pete and Mel were up Thursday and Friday as well.

We had a pretty big group on Thanksgiving Day for Lunch/Dinner. There were 23 of us all together. The nice thing about having so many people for Thanksgiving is that you can split up the meal. Many hands mak light work. We had so much food some of it barely got touched. Of course that was great for all the after Thanksgiving meals the next couple of days. Anyway, we had a great time and enjoyed the company of so many this year.
On Friday, I had a near death experience, well not really, but it was somewhat scary. I am sure most people have read about the trampling death of a Wal-Mart employee on Black Friday. Well, I had my own Wal-Mart experience. I was there at 4:30 in the morning for a key item that was on sale. I was standing 2 feet away from it on the opposite side of the rope to hold people back. When the clock struck 5 and the rope dropped, I took my two steps forward to grab the item. Just as I grabbed it, I was shoved forward an downward over the pallet by 3 other people behind me trying to reach over me. I yelled, "You know if you let me up, you could get to it much easier." I fought my way out and headed off to explore the other Black Friday Deals. It truly is amazing that people get so selfish, careless, and impatient that they would trample a person that way. Just run over him. It is sad.

On a happier note ,today we trimmed our tree in preparation for Christmas. It is so fun. I love this season so much. Christmas truly is my favorite time of the year. Here are a couple of pictures.
