Tis the Season

Another holiday down....and another to go!  Thanksgiving has quickly come and gone and now we are into full fledged Christmas spirit!  It's not even December 1st just yet but I already feel behind and that Christmas will be here before we know it!

We had a wonderful time in Mathis with Matt and his family.  The boys of course were a big hit and they equally loved all of the attention :)  Aunt Debbie lives on a lake so Zach especially loved going out on the pier to see all of the fishies and such.  Travelling makes for an interesting time now...potty stops for Z and screaming for mark ;-)  The younger of the 2 is not a very good traveller, i guess he doesn't like to be constrained?  The random screaming and lack of snoozing in the car made him a less than desirable travel partner, but we grinned and bared it and just had to laugh at the chaos we call life these days!  And also decided we were done travelling at least through the end of the year now! :)

We didn't hit any black Friday sales, but Wal-mart was having an additional sale on Saturday that Matt was out the door early for.  They had a 37" flat screen on sale and that is just the size we need for the armoire we currently have.  I know, our TVs are so out of date (even though they are only like 6 years old),  but we aren't ready to buy new furniture yet so we got one that would fit what we have.  The first walmart Matt went to started their sale early and they were all gone before the sale even started!  He headed to another one and got the 4th to last TV!  Woohoo!  We still need a HD cable box but the TV looks pretty cool already!  we are slowly catching up with the technology! HA!

And my only Cyber Monday purchase was a Christmas present for myself...a Silhouette!!  it is this awesome craft cutter and I cannot wait to get it and start using it!  My craftiness is just about to get kicked up another notch! woohoo!

My plan to be finished with Christmas early is not quite complete so I really  need to get busy this next week and finish shopping.  I would LOVE to have that totally done so not have to worry about it anymore and relax some.  I do have some crafting I need to complete too...some presents as well as some decorations that I would like to have completed soon.  Just not enough hours in the day.

Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoying the start of this blessed holiday season!!
