Late...Again. Story of my life!

Thanksgiving was getting close, then it was here, and now....gone! How fast has this holiday season started and Christmas will be here in 27 days. All I can do is cross my eyes and shake my read as a response to that! I was able to kick off my holiday with a 2 1/2 day work week which was sweet. Thursday, we went to my grandmother's house in Franklin where I proceeded to eat way too much as if I could somehow squirrel away some of this yummy food for a later date!
I stayed the night at Cool Springs with a couple of girlfriends so we could get up and just be there for the Black Friday shopping. Toys 'R Us opened at ten o'clock Thursday night and we had a bright idea to go ahead and hit that store to mark if off the Friday list. HAHAHAHAHAHA We found out real quick that the joke was on us. The line to get into the store was over a block and half long. We decided to bail and get back to the hotel to rest up. Black Friday shopping rendered much success and I would venture to say I was able to complete 80% of my shopping without a list, itinerary or agenda.
I have unfortunately discovered that Michael gets harder and harder to shop for the older he gets. He is technically out of the toy stage and is getting incredibly picky over his clothes. I would see a shirt and think 'that's a nice shirt' then the more I would look at it the more I began to second guess his approval of said clothing item. Needless to say, not a lot of clothes purchased for him Friday...he is going to have to start liking to shop if he wants to pick out his own things. (he was reading this as I was typing and just informed me he will never like to shop) I guess we shall see.
I am almost finished with decorating the house for Christmas. I just need to get the downstairs 'adult tree' bought and decorated followed by putting the big 4 foot wreath over the front door...oh....and wrapping lights around my awesomely large cypress trees!!

1. Three things I must have on my Thanksgiving table: mashed potatoes, moist dressing and turnip greens.

2. A couple of Sundays ago I watched movies with the boys sacked out on the couch.

3. This is becoming too complicated at times...I wish it could be done with so I can move on.

4. I have become a little obsessed when I decorate the house for Christmas.

5. Oh, man, thankfully it's almost Christmas and my shopping list is getting shorter.

6. I will perfect the art of movie making. ;)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to sorting through all the gifts and hoping one child doesn't have more than another, tomorrow my plans include putting a big dent in the decorating of the house and Sunday, I want to spend time with my boys and pick out our real tree to put downstairs!

I want to know what kind of kinky decorations go on the "adult tree"! LOL

Ahhhh, the 'adult tree'. My lovely friend Danielle prodded me in much the same way when it was mentioned last year. The more I thought about it the more it made me laugh. Let me assure you, the adult tree is tasteful but can you even imagine what the decoration would be if it wasn't?

Now THAT'S my kind of Christmas party! Gives "Dirty Santa" a whole new twist!
