Catching Up!

I haven't done a what's happening post in a while. I've been so busy with the blog party and getting ready for Thanksgiving that I haven't gotten personal!

We had a nice low-key Thanksgiving spent with family and friends. We hosted the meal at our house and my sis and her family came over and we ate around noon. The food was yummy and everyone had a nice time together. In the late afternoon my guys took off to the movies with friends. Dori & I stayed home and watched a chick flick and drank sparkling cider aka tickle juice. Then we all went over to a friends for dessert and good conversation.

I kept busy yesterday. I baked cookies, baked gingerbread houses, made 2 meals for a friend recovering from surgery, took a walk, and did a bunch of online shopping. I found many in store deals online too. I picked store delivery on a few items, so I didn't have to pay shipping. So my Christmas shopping is basically done. Just a few stocking stuffers left to buy.

Today was our 2nd annual Family Holiday Craft Day. My sis & family come over and we made ornaments, gingerbread houses, take photos, and eat a yummy dinner. The kids had a great time decorating the gingerbread houses. Now Eric & I are sitting down to watch Semi-Pro.

I've been doing a little graphics work lately...a holiday card, updating a few blogs, and some other graphics. I need to get our Christmas card designed and ordered, hopefully tomorrow!

We've had decent weather the past few days, but that is coming to an end tomorrow. We have a winter advisory issued. Normally I don't take stock in forecasts like that, but we usually get our first measurable snow around Dec 1. ICK!

I really enjoyed the momdot blog party that I participated in. I discovered some new blogs and make a few online friends. I even won a prize!! I also won a recent giveaway at The Clan McLeod blog. I will post pics of that prize when I get it.

Speaking of giveaways...I will be announcing an exciting giveaway on this blog sometime soon!
