We have had a wonderful relaxing weekend. We have taken this weekend to spend a lot of time talking to our children about thanking God for the blessings He has given us. We have also been talking about giving and serving others. We have had some great teachable moments this weekend. It has been nice to have this unstructured time to just be together as a family. Except for lunch on Thanksgiving we have had no commitments this weekend. Darren has a four day weekend and the kids have enjoyed having Daddy at home.

I wanted to share a picture of the turkey cupcakes my sister made for Thanksgiving. The kids loved it!

A question for those with large families. This past weekend we took a family trip to attend a wedding. As I began to search for a hotel I discovered that most hotels will only allow four people to a standard room. We are now a family of seven!!!!! We ended up staying with my parents in their RV, which worked out just fine.

So, what do you do when you take a trip? Do you fork out the bucks for a family suite? Get two rooms? Or, do you just not mention that you have five children hiding around the corner?
