Hey folks! Thanksgiving has come and gone, and it was of course as great as ever. We spent some time out in Wisconsin with the hubs' dad, mom, and sister. There was lots of hunting and watching of football games going on, and since I don't normally participate too much in either of those activities it gives me a great excuse to do lots and lots of reading.
Which I love.
There was also lots of game playing, laughing, playing with kitties, talking, and eating of delicious food.
Which I also love.
Here's the hubs' dad carving the turkey.
And the hubs' mom setting the lovely table.
AND THEN. After we came back, I swung into full Christmas spirit. I mentioned here that we like to hold off until Thanksgiving is over...and usually a little longer. But this year I was all psyched up to get my cheer on the day immediately AFTER Turkey Day. Which means that this past weekend has been full of the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack, decorating, Elf, pine scented candles, and the Transiberian Orchestra.
AND getting annoyed at cats who like to pull ornaments off the tree in the middle of the night and bat them around the house until you get up in a irritated groggy haze and squirt them with a water bottle.
But no Christmas shopping yet. AH! I gotta get on that. It's a whole month away and it's ALREADY stressing me out.
So. How was your Thanksgiving?
And does Christmas shopping stress you out too??
And how do you keep your cats from stealing your ornaments??? Our tree is ridiculously empty along the bottom section and yet they STILL manage to swipe them! Little weasels.
