Miscellany Monday

Just another Miscellany Monday around here...

1. Thanksgiving is this week!  I love Thanksgiving, it's right up there with some of my favorite holidays, you know right behind my birthday!  {Just kidding, my birthday is not a real holiday, but in my head and heart it is.}  We were going to go out to eat for Thanksgiving, but I think we have decided to stay home and make a traditional feast.  I look forward to the leftovers!

2. My mom and step-dad are flying in Wednesday to celebrate Thanksgiving and an early Christmas with us.  I am so excited to see them!

3. Grandparents = extra hands and help with the girls!  This may excite me the most!

4. I wrapped Christmas presents last night and it got me all excited!

5. I can't wait until Thanksgiving night, that is when we will put our tree up and start to decorate our house...trying to keep Lucy from pulling all the ornaments off will be a Christmas miracle this year.  So don't judge if you see our tree and all the ornaments are at the top!

6. Our tiny little village has a Christmas kick-off on Friday night, Santa comes in on a firetruck and everyone gathers down in the little village square to sing Christmas carols and watch Santa come in.  I love it because everyone young and old comes out and enjoys a night together.  It's so much fun and something we look forward to every year.  Hopefully it won't be too cold!   

I think that's all, sorry for no pictures!  Have a great week!

Already wrapping presents? I am impressed. I'm glad you are going with the traditional feast, as a Thanksgiving lover that is the only way to go.
