I am not one to push the Christmas season and usually roll my eyes when I see Christmas paraphernalia in stores before Thanksgiving hits. Although this still holds true and there is no way any Christmas decorations will light our walls and shelves before the turkey is gone, my excuse for lagging in the blogging department is that I have secretly been busy busy busy with Christmas prep projects! I am like the undercover Christmas enthusiast just waiting to burst forth. I just finished with 3 projects/gifts and am so excited to see the designated people open them! I like my projects, but I do have a tendency to overload myself... I feel like I always have 5 or more projects on all burners at once! But I guess that's what I love : )
We will be spending Thanksgiving with the Piersons and their extended family this year. After Turkey dinner with the grandparents Evan will help his dad milk cows and I will whip up some yummy cookies with the women! I hope to take some fun pictures that day... so look for those to come!
Well, I'm off to write our first Christmas card and figure out how to make a real gingerbread house -- I'll try not to turn on the Christmas music... yet!
