It's Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas!!!

Hi Everyone!!...I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving...We had lunch with friends/neighbors that live across the street from our old house....We spend every Thanksgiving with them only this is the first year that we haven't been across the street..We're across town now!...But is was a great dinner with friends....An early lunch meant I could come home and get Luke to sleep for a nap and work on Christmas...I see a end in sight!!
Ok..Did you venture out today??..If , so, what time??...We went out around 1:30...We use to go out when we moved here 10 years ago..I mean we would go out at 4 or 5....But we always went out just to spend time together and enjoy shopping...I always had to go to Michael's and JoAnn's with my coupons....Well, either it's an older age or something, but I'm NOT waking Luke and dragging him out in the morning...I still had to stand in line at JoAnn's and Michael's, but not for long and Luke was enjoying himself thoroughly just being out while Tim watched him...Taylor had to work....
And believe it or not I came home from Michael's with more Christmas greenery to put up....But I have been weeding out Christmas the past several years...I've been willing to spend a little more for items that I know I will have around for a long time and greenery that looks more realistic....I emptied out the container of greenery I was looking for....At JoAnn's I bought elastic, fabric pens, and some buttons...Everything was half off....

I'm doing a swap with a friend, Vivian, on Webshots where we have our pics...These are the items I had picked out....I've really been enjoying deciding where to place them....I have finally put each one in a new home..Thanks Vivian!
Have you noticed that alot of red is mixing in with my blues?!?

And Oh! NO!...I had to call in my Mr. Fix-it man...My cradle was broke!!!..ha!
And what good work he does!!...All fixed!!

Well, off to do some more decorating..I finally got my tree up in the bedroom tonight...It is one of my favorites!!...I thought I'd share a couple Christmas pics...

Have a great weekend!!!...hugs,Jen
