I can't believe that it's been so long since I last posted....Busy, busy! We had a nice quiet Thanksgiving here at home. Clay hunted while I cooked & Maw came down & joined us for supper. We had the usual menu....Turkey, cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, grean beans, mac & cheese, rolls & for dessert.....pumpkin pie, apple pie & ginger cookies.

Since then, Danielle & I have enjoyed our annual 'Mommy's Christmas Shopping Day'. We went a tad early this year since Greg was off & could keep the kids....thanks Greg & Clay!! We had a really fun & productive day. Lunch at Cracker Barrel, then we hit Target, Michaels & the mall. Danielle put a good dent in her shopping & I was tickled with what I got done especially since I really didn't go with a list....just happened across some good deals. Came home & had our usual Mommy Shopping night supper.....Vitos pizza. Gotta love those traditions!

We got our tree last Monday from the Greenview nursery in Lynchburg (where we've gotten our tree for the past several years.) Finally got it decorated night before last. Another tradition....we had Chinese food for supper & then everyone helped to decorate the tree! Still need some new garland for my bannister rail & then I can hang our stockings. ;-)

Off to work on some more hand-made gifts today. Then tomorrow the teens have drama practice after church....another busy day!
