Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!

Boy, were we busy or what? In the past week, we have put up our Christmas tree, cleaned out the closet under the stairs and made it into a playroom for Mylie, helped cook Thanksgiving dinner, served Thanksgiving dinner at Nanny's, then attended two more Thanksgivings, one at Granny Ma's and the other at Neno's. (Gail, Justin's mother) Whew, it makes me tired again thinking about all of it. We had so much fun seeing all of our family. I wish we all got to see each other more often. I have lots to do between now and Christmas, so I will try and keep an update as often as I can. Most of the shopping is complete, but there is a lot of sewing involved with some presents, so as not to give the surprise away, I will have to post pics of it all after the 25th! But, here are some pics from Thanksgiving.

It's almost time for...

Christmas! This is a picture of my new front door arrangement. I found the "B" at Christmas Village and picked the ribbon up at Hobby Lobby. All of their Christmas stuff was 50% off the other day. I wish I could have loaded up, but I didn't have the time. Justin and I are currently in discussion about when to put the tree up. I think now, he would like to wait. I am very excited to see how Mylie will react this year to all the decorating. Last year, after Christmas, my MIL and I went to Old Time Pottery and stocked up on Christmas lights and decor for outside. I can't wait! There is such a short time between Thanksgiving and Christmas that I want to get the most out of my decorations. This is the first year in quite a while that I have been this excited about decorating for Christmas. I will post more pics and they are taken! Hope everyone is having a great week.

On a totally different note, Tam is having a Matilda Jane Trunk Show this Friday. Check the stuff out online and if you want to order, call or email me. Mylie has the Fern in Pink dress. I ordered a size 4T and it will fit as a dress for 2 to 3 years, then it will be a top for many more. This is an investment piece that is just way cutter than anything I have seen in the stores in a long time.

What's been going on with you?

Well, It's been a few weeks since I have had a real post, so I will try and catch everyone up.

Halloween was a blast. We spent most of the day at West with Mom and her class. Mylie really enjoyed the character parade and assembly. Mylie dressed up as a pirate girl. She did not like the hat that came with the outfit, but that was o.k. she still looked great. I managed to not get a good picture of her in her costume. I think I might dress her back up and make some pictures so that I will have them later. Halloween night, we went out to Missy's house for a party. She did a wonderful job decorating and cooking and we all had a blast.

Mylie's favorite thing right now is to sing her ABCs. She can make it all the way to G. From there she know more but not in order until the end when you say "Now I know my" She really likes that part too! She is talking more and more each day. There isn't anything she won't try to say!

We had Mylie's 18 month check up. All was well with her. I had my OB apt. and everything was great with us.

Justin had his Sgt. interview today. He is still in the "testing" phase. I don't know if you remember, but a while back I posted that he was taking the test. Well, the test and the interview go together to make up the score. So, he said he felt well about the interview. This process is very slow, and that annoys me.

We went back up to Missy's the other day to visit. Her mom cooked the best fried chicken in the world! What made it even better was it was boneless! Also, fried pies for dessert! I was stuffed. Her brother was there with his kids. All the children played very well together. I have so many memories of playing with my cousins and a child. I hope Mylie will too. One funny thing was Mylie playing the wii. The boys were playing tennis and gave her a remote with out batteries. She would swing it and say "wii" and "Ball" and a whole bunch of other things. We all just laughed and laughed.

Christmas Village is this weekend. I can't wait. This will be the second year I have gone. I have a friend who gets me tickets to the sneak peak. I hear that's the only way to go!

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week.
