Happy Holidays!!!

By looking at the changes in the blog can you tell that my favorite holiday is coming??!!! I couldn't wait to make the blog look festive (and figure out how to do some of the things I have seen on other blogs!).

Thanksgiving was very uneventful and relaxing for us. We visited Papa and Grammy for the day and after lots of talking, game playing, tv watching and snacking we shared a GREAT thanksgiving meal. We had turkey, dressing, corn, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, fruit salad, deviled eggs, etc. For dessert we had pumpkin pie, crustless pumpkin pie (that was yummy papa!) and lemon merinque pie that was made especially for Mike! On our way home we enjoyed the christmas lights that were already glowing in the night...Lexy thought these were really great so we know we'll have to do that again a few more times this season! By the time we made it home we had two sleeping girls that then did not want to go to bed until late.

Robin, Christina and I got up at the butt crack of dawn on "black friday" to roam with the idiots! Robin and I have made a tradition of this and we really enjoy watching everyone waiting in line and going crazy for that got-to-have item while we just have fun and get some shopping done. We were gone from 5am to about the end of the day, between the three of us, we had totally filled up every available space in my van! We went to 3 different Wal-Marts, Toys R Us, Target, K-Mart, and Lowe's and had a much deserved lunch at Red Robins.

This morning we went to visit Santa and Mrs. Claus. Lexy was SO excited to see them! Santa asked Brooke if she had a boyfriend and she told him no.
So then Santa asked Lexy if she had a boyfriend and was very surprised (and even asked Brooke to make sure) when Lexy said yes!!!! They all got a laugh out of that!
Brooke asked for some cowboy boots and Lexy asked for Tumbles the fur real dog.
