Making It.

Today is November 30th and I am super pleased to say that I made it.

I posted something every single day.

Whew!

Let me tell you, it was not always easy. With sick kids, sick me, travel plans, holidays....there were many nights that I realized in the knick of time I needed to post and did.

But I am ever so glad I did it. While I will probably not commit to posting something every single day I do feel like I've gotten back in the groove of posting and have lots of thoughts and ideas to get started on this December.

Tomorrow morning, J, E and I are off to Children's to get Miss E's tubes in. It's a minor, very simple and common procedure but I wouldn't complain if you offered up a prayer or two on our behalf.

My goal is to update via my twitter/facebook as I'm able.

Finally, on this last day of November, this morning the littles and I went with some friends to the Macy's display downtown. As always a fun time with friends, albeit crazy at times. While leaving the Gavidae food court there were many businessmen/women watching in horror as we tried to load up the elevators, because we all make it look so seamless. (Kidding!)

Six moms, eleven kids (11 mos-almost 5 years), two single strollers, four double strollers.

Yes indeed we were a sight.

Here's H and some of his friends:


And with that I'll say, thanks for helping me making it through National Blog Posting Month!

It's been fun reading (almost) every post of yours this month!! I'll pray now and as often as I think of it tomorrow for lil Miss E and the doctors.

Congrats on the month of blogging! You and your fam and especially Miss E will be in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow. I'll be checking Twitter for your updates!

Saying prayers for you today. We've spent loads of time at Children's with our little Asher. Even if something is minor, it's not easy. I think maybe even harder on Mama then those resilient little ones! Peace to you...

(and congrats on NaBloPoMo!)

Way to go on making it every day! As someone who slipped up on it, I'm definitely in awe of you! Thinking of Miss E today.

My brothers both had tubes put in too - glad to hear on Twitter that all went well. The picture of all the kids on your outing reminds me of an outing I went on last fall with several of my friends - I think we had 20 kids or so and 4 adults...craziness!

Samara, you sound like me bringing Henry to preschool last year. Me pushing a single stroller and pulling two in a wagon, Henry walking alongside us. Everyone thought I was crazy, 4 five years and under.

Congrats on making a month of posting, I could never do it.

Good luck on the tubes, I'm certain it will go smooth but a few prayers are coming from me.

PS - I think you asked... Sincerely, Jenni (from Iowa) won the Eau Claire trip. I posted the winner in the comments.

PPS- Looking forward to meeting you :)
