Thanksgiving musings and Christmas anticipation...

We had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner here at our house with Jason's parents, sisters, and their families. I haven't had Thanksgiving in our home since we lived in Spokane. I enjoyed having family here and making dinner. However, we don't care for leftovers, so I happily sent most home with them. We played "Ticket to Ride"and a few games of "Rage." I didn't think to take any photos. I never do at Thanksgiving. I'll do better at Christmas.

Today, the kids and I are taking a big break. Lou and I made cookie dough. Sugar to roll and cut out later. Chocolate chip to ball up and freeze. We're listening to Christmas music while I blog and she plays with Play-Do. Cael is napping and the other boys are downstairs watching Brennen's new favorite movie, Toy Story. Now, if only Jason weren't at work...

After naps, we'll venture into the garage and retrieve the Christmas bins. The tree is 9 feet tall and will have to wait for Jason to get home. The rest, the kids and I will do.

With the sun shining on all that glorious snow and Christmas carols playing on the stereo, it seems that the Christmas season is truly upon us!

Well, I would have liked some pictures of Thanksgiving...

Making cookies to Christmas carols while the sun is gleaming on a snow covered ground sounds heavenly!

I was thinking the same thing. Having snow for Thanksgiving sure does make Christmas seem a lot closer (LOL).
