It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

I pulled out the Christmas decorations Friday morning. I still don't have the tree up, and haven't put up any outside lights, but we have stockings hung, the snowscene up and lots of little trinkets out on shelves. I love the Christmas season!

Twenty-One Pound Turkey

I bought a twenty-one pound turkey yesterday! I'm getting exciting for Thanksgiving. We are not having a huge crowd; nine adults and three kids. It should be fun. My dad and stepmom are coming, which is always fun. Happy Thanksgiving!

Christmas Fever

I've been getting excited about Christmas lately. It is, afterall, my favorite Holiday. I never pull out my decorations until after Thanksgiving (okay, on Thanksgiving, but after dinnner), but I've been really tempted lately to start hauling boxes up the stairs and start decorating!
Maybe it's because of the fact that we were living with relatives last Christmas, and most of my decorations stayed in boxes. Maybe it's the peppermint ice cream I've been eating everyday for the past two weeks. Maybe it's because I've been our running errands after dinner lately when it's dark and the stores are bustling and it's so cold! Whatever it is, I have Christmas Fever. I've had to restrain myself several times from listening to the Christmas music station while in the car (okay, I admit it, I haven't always used restraint. The other day when there was nothing else on, I did listen to a couple of songs.)

Less than two weeks to go . . . once the turkey is put away in the fridge, I'm pulling out the Christmas tree! And, of course, the Christmas music. I always listen to Christmas music while decorating!

My Cute Boys

A good friend of mine took some fall photos of my boys (thanks, Leslie!) I may be biased, but I think they are adorable!
