Christmas decorations

I have finally retrieved all of the Christmas decorations and have transformed the yellow house for Christmas....the kids are still working on the outside decorations (stayed tuned).  The front foyer, upstairs window seat, and Big Daddy's tree are ready in addition to the big tree.  I didn't get the "Christmas Tree room" I was hoping for but it has turned out well, so far.  Big Daddy's tree may be my fave this year...it has helicopters, police cars, a tractor and a Corvette or two.  The little owl is for me, I loved him upon sight....REALLY!  More to come as the children get the rest done (bless their hearts.)

I Am Thankful For....

To the outside world it may appear that our household goes straight from Halloween to Christmas...I am one of those weirdos that is always happy to see the Christmas trees go up at Wal-Mart (puny as they are...).  This year was like every other. Future Trooper carted off the corn shocks and pumpkins on the very same day, I carted out the Snowman flag and dragged out the lights.  That was 3 days ago and our house has successfully traded witches for snowmen......BUT, we are very much a Thanksgiving kind of family.  We will be celebrating at Mrs. Butterworth's house (bed and breakfast, really) with several family members from out of town.  We will gorge ourselves on mashed potatoes and gravy and coconut cake (Karen E. II, don't forget the cake, thanks) and then we will lie on the couch and remember the last 40 years of Thanksgiving celebrations. This feels like a multi-post week...I am feeling thankful and you will be forced to read why...
