Thanksgiving and More

I took a picture of the turkey being carved but it is home on my camera so imagine a turkey....cut....eaten.
That about covers it.
It was a nice, quiet day actually. The kids stayed over at Gramma's because I was working so I got to sleep a bit late. Unfortunately when I arrived to get the kids I figured we could hang out and visit but there was a bit of bickering between the family so the kids and I left. We went to see our friends and give out Gobble, Gobble hugs for Thanksgiving. It was great to see Bonnie's first attempt at homemade pie crust. Something that I envy and am terrified of.
When we returned for dinner it was a quiet meal. Maybe we should brew up a family argument more often as it was the nicest meal I have had on a Holiday in a while!!
Due to the rain on Friday Dad was not able to cut firewood so instead we went out to breakfast and he drove me to Hyannis so I could brave Toys R Us. I didn't really plan it but I was able to get a few presents for 50% off. Terrific!
Today my Mom and I headed out to Kmart and Old Navy and got some awesome deals. Buy One Get One Free with a $5 coupon in my hand-Can't beat that!!
I think the Christmas spirit has bitten everyone this year. Last year just Sucked!
I have seen so many decorated homes and trees all lit peeking out from people's windows. It seems like everyone is jumping on the Holiday bandwagon early this year. I am not so ready for that myself. I just took the pumpkins and Pilgrims down and I just don't feel like unloading all the Christmas stuff just yet. Maybe once the leaves are removed from the lawn I will be more into it.
How is your Holiday preparation going?

Forget removing the leaves...the snow will cover them and then everyones lawn will look pristine!
I am thinking that next weekend will be a good weekend for some (at least) outdoor decorating...Just in time for the parade!! WOOHOO!!!

I am waiting for the leaves to just blow away. Last year I had a nice man come and blow my yard, but. Meh.

Our tree is up - and - Dad has done some covert shopping of a few of the Have-to-haves ... that's it.
