I had a post pre-Thanksgiving all set to go. And then I got sick. And never sent it. Now it is post Thanksgiving and obsolete. So, here is our Thanksgiving synopsis:
The kids were off of school.
I got sick. 102.5 fever. Steve got sick. We let the kids watch a super ton of tv.
We went to the Crowne Plaza for Thanksgiving day lunch. I ate 3 bites and felt like crap.
Steve stayed sick until Sunday until we had a terrible fight because I was being a baby.
We feel better, kids are back to school and life rolls on.
Somehow in the midst of hacking coughs, Vick's Vapo Rub and cough syrup, I managed to haul all of my Christmas crap down from the attic. We re-arranged our downstairs furniture and transformed our house into a winter wonderland. This is the first year since we've been married w/ kids/dog that we have had a full size tree. We usually have a 3 ft table top tree in order to keep ornaments out of temptation's way of kid and canine. This year I feel like a real grown up. The kids and I have been super excited about this. I'm not sure Steve has even noticed.
I allowed the kids to decorate the 3 ft tree that will now live in the guest bedroom. They used all of the additional, unused decorations to decorate their own little space and they did a great job. They had a blast and I didn't have to keep saying, "Please don't put that there." Or "Don't hang all the ornaments in one big clump." They did it however they wanted. It was a win/win.
Now I only have 27 more days to answer the "Is it Christmas yet?" question. Let the Christmas season begin.
