Aftermath...

That's right. Aftermath. The Fat Man comes and leaves this house in a hurricane and it's up to "SUPERMOM" to put it all back together, clean it up, and find places for it all. It's all okay though, it was worth it to see the faces of my family light up with glee at their surprises. Graeme got the biggest surprise of all - his parents bought him a brand new 2007 Chevy Cobalt! It was quite a shock to everyone, most of all him! I couldn't be happier for him, he is the BEST and deserves it. He is a wonderful husband, father, and son. I could not be happier unless I'd bought it myself for him.

Kennedy had a wonderful day filled with High School Musical and Hannah Montana - she was thrilled right down to the core. The boys were a bit more subdued but what do you expect of an 18 and 16 year old that early in the morning??? We enjoyed a beautiful dinner (if I do say so myself...) - I actually searched out and prepared several "Martha Stewart" recipes for the stuffing, a side dish, and the turkey - all were delish! It was a very special present for all of us to have Kennedy join us and dine with us at the table for our holiday meal together.

So now it's back to the cleaning, re-organizing, etc. I hope everyone who reads this blog had a very merry whatever-it-is-you-celebrate and some wonderful, peaceful, healthy, restful time with family & friends.

Yay for Hannah Montana movies!
