Thanksgiving has come and gone. The month long celebration of Christmas has begun. It used to annoy me that stores and people didn't at least wait until December before breaking out the Christmas music, lights and decorations, but it's different for me after having kids. Whitney is way excited about Christmas this year and can't wait to put up a tree. She even remembered where we put it last year. Unbelievable!!
We hosted Thanksgivng this year, and Wade did a great job with the meal. He is the new cook in the family :) Now my parents are here for some visiting and for me and my mom to do some shopping! Without the girls!!!!! Bring it on! Hope I don't get wore out, it's currently 6:30 am. Ellie woke me up at 4:50, which woke Whitney up so that shot any hopes of getting Ellie back to bed, but they have both gone back to sleep now. I have already had coffee and new that once I finally fell back asleep it would be time to get up again. Ugh! Guess I'm getting my internet fix early today.
