I can't believe it is almost Monday-AGAIN! I can't believe it is December! So far, it is off to a great start. I LOVE December! We had a great weekend. There is so much going on & so much more still to do. Here's what we've been up to.
As many of you know, i LOVE black Friday! The only downer about black Friday is that I miss having my sister Amber to shop with. One of these years will be able to shop black Friday sales together again. I love to shop & score the awesome deals. I ended up getting home from our Thanksgiving dinner with my family & I decided that I wasn't tired-those dang Diet Cokes. i decided to scrapbook. I was on a roll so i decided to stay up & not go to bed. I scrapbooked till 4 am & then brushed my teeth, got my clothes on & headed out the door. I hit Wal*Mart first. i don't ever remember it being so crazy. I didn't even make it through half of the store. Still found deals & stood in line for 45 minutes to pay for my stuff. It was INSANE. After my Wal*Mart experience, i only hit a few more stores & then headed home. I was home by 9am & didn't get a nap till 4 pm.
John had the entire week off. We love when he's home.
Our lights are up on the house- LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Christmas lights!
Our Christmas tree is not up. Kind of bummed about that. i need it as part of my decorations for the Christmas party @ church next weekend. It will have to wait.
I am up to my elbows in glitter, glue, angel wings, & halos-Fun times. only 12 more sets of wings & halos to make for the Nativity pageant.
Have I mentioned that I am so excited that it is December. i love this season & all of the magic it holds.
Loving all the Christmas music...need to decide what Christmas album I will be adding to my collection this year. Any suggestions?
I made my very first turkey tonight. we have been married for 12 years & I have never made a turkey. Can you believe that? I even made homemade gravy. Tanner kept saying "My compliments to the chef". Silly boy.
My Christmas cards are addressed & ready to be mailed. i need to type up our family newsletter & then I can send them. It feels good to have that checked off my list.
We had our family night tonight. We talked about the things we can do for each other & our friends to help bring the Christmas spirit into our hearts & home this season. We made a tree out of cardstock & punched out some circles for ornaments. When we do something nice, we get to add an ornament to our tree. The boys were excited & i am pretty sure i will have to make a few trees to hold those ornaments this season.
After a two week break, the boys will head back to school tomorrow! I am ready & so are they!
I think it is time for a fun give away! We haven't done one in a while. Leave a comment telling me what your favorite thing about December is & my boys will draw the lucky winner on Wednesday.
Have a happy Monday & enjoy your December.
