long weekends are awesome!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with their family (if you celebrate Thanksgiving anyways!).  We had a nice time.  It was kind of crazy having everyone up here for dinner, but it was nice too, especially about 10 minutes in when Emma wanted to get down and play.  Sometimes it is just easier with kids to be at your own house.  At least that is the case for me!  My mom made a delicious turkey, and my brother made some awesome poached pears with a honey vanilla cream.  A little non-traditional, but delicious none-the-less!

How many people out there are Black Friday shoppers?  I, unfortunately, love going out on Black Friday.  Typically I am not one for consumerism, and this would be the worst day to decide to be for it I guess, but it always puts me in the Christmas spirit, seeing all the decorations and people out looking for gifts for their loved ones.  I actually don't buy too much on Black Friday.  But, I always need craft supplies for the holidays, and I can typically get some really good deals on fabric and yarn, so I usually go for it!

Then Saturday was our day to decorate our Christmas tree.  We do it the Saturday after Thanksgiving every year.  I try to stretch out the Christmas season for as long as possible, and considering we celebrate Christmas the week before with Matt's family, it seems like we have no time between Thanksgiving and Christmas...oh right...we don't...2 weekends left.

I hope you all are enjoying this wonderful season and are able to take a couple steps back from the parties and the presents and enjoy those around you!  That is my goal for this season!  Hopefully I will be back with some regular blogging the rest of the week, and the weeks to come :-)
