Merry Christmas...I mean Happy Thanksgiving

Wow, I haven't been a very good blogger. The holiday bussle started last week with:
*the Thanksgiving feast at Drew's school
*a field trip to sing at the nursing home
(isn't it amazing how older people light up when they see a child's face?)
*going to the Drive-In to see Blind Side
*the Scentsy, Uppercase Living, and jewelry party at my friend, Haylee's, house
*baking cookies
*packing to go to Childress
*trying to figure out how to use my new cell phone
*making my Christmas list (and checking it twice)
*looking for a Christmas puppy
*writing my Christmas letter
AND
putting up the Christmas tree. I know it isn't Thanksgiving yet, but...
Drew and Kade have been asking to put up the Christmas tree since Halloween. I gave in Monday morning, and we put it up. By lunch I was kicking myself in the rear for doing it without Ronnie, but Drew and Kade's excitement made up for my exhaustion. Their favorite part was putting up the ornaments...I think Kade is still "rearranging" them as I type. Ha! Yesterday, we decided to wrap Nana's presents. Kade wrapped his first, and I told him to go put it under the tree. Drew and I worked on wrapping his, and then I walked with him over to put it under the Christmas tree. I looked, and looked, but couldn't find Kade's present. I asked him, "Kade where did you put your present." He pointed to the back yard and said, "Under the trees." Ha!!! I love it!
I wanted to put something pretty (but cheap) on my coffee table. I rummaged around in my ornaments, picked some cotton, and viola!!!



Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends.

Just found you through Lynette at Dancing Barefoot...
Your premise in blogging sounds a lot like mine (although I do NOT like Diet Coke with lime or otherwise ;-). I even had Daughter of the King in my tag line for awhile.

Great blog! Glad I found you.

Stopping by from Lynnette's to say HI. Love your tree. We have yet to put ours up because we normally have a train around our tree, however with our 10 month old we have to come up with another idea. It was fun to get to know you and I have been to Lubbock. We visit often due to family that live in the area. I to love the sunsets. Living in SE Alaska (rain forest) I do not get to see the sun much. So I enjoy it when I can.

Have a blessed day.
