I have never been so excited for thanksgiving!  Bryan and I get to go home for 5 days to spend it in Oregon.  It will be like my mini Christmas, since we are still not sure where we're doing, or even where we'll be for Christmas.  

My plans:
1. Eat
2. Laugh
3. Eat again
4. Cook (only to eat more)
5. Shop
6. Listen to Christmas music
7. Do a Christmas puzzle
8. Have great family and friends over for Thanksgiving day!

Can't wait!!!  See you Sunday Mom!!

Deck The Halls:

Because it snowed I feel entitled to start decorating for Christmas! And I might have started listening to Christmas music last week.  Some people think i'm a little silly, but really- why is it wrong to dance around the house in your jammies celebrating the birth of Christ!  We would be nothing without Jesus Christ, so why do people think we can only celebrate his birth in the month of December?  Thats my vote...

Anyway!  My mom sent some fabric and a pattern so I could make stockings for me and Bryan. We are not sure yet where we'll be for Christmas, so we have our stockings to take with us wherever we go!  

Our Two stockings! I need a fireplace with a mantel so I can hang them up! For now they are homeless stockings...

My stocking (More girly fabric at least)

Bryan's stocking!

Christmas is here!

Christmas is here!

We got 3 inches of snow two days ago and it was beautiful!  It was the first snow of the season and it was gorgeous to see it fall so gracefully.  I should have taken pictures, but i didn't even think about it. Bryan and I went for a walk when he got home from work, and we got to bundle up in our coats and boots and tromp through the fresh snow.  I love that new snow 'crunch' when you are the first to step in that particular area of snow...

Don't you love snow?
