well, Christmas is just around the corner! Isn't it funny it seems like Thanksgiving was just yesterday. well, as you all know we had twenty some people in our house on Thanksgiving ! It went pretty well my nephew's friends were very nice. And all of my kids and son in law went black Friday shopping. They had a lot of fun but didn't buy much at all. Later that night I met up with them and we all went to the mall and I got some fiesta silverware! I absolutely love it! well for Christmas this year me and my family are going down to Arizona with my brother and his daughter to spend Christmas with my parents and Peter's parents. I can not wait to get back in the sun! now this week is a hectic week . Sara is serving at the Christmas banquet, Luke is going to his first Christmas banquet, then Luke is having a class party and Sara is having two friends over. so it is going to be one busy week. is anyone looking forward to snow i am not but my children can not wait for some snow and hopefully many snow days. i am counting the days till we go to Arizona. what is everybody else doing for Christmas??

I just recently got back from beautiful Arizona. It was simple marvelous, I went down on Monday and came back on Friday. Once I got back I found out that my daughters got me some new pillows for my living room! They go great with the new rug! Except the rug is one of those rugs where you have to vacuum a certain way, but oh well. Meanwhile Thanksgiving is just around the corner and there are twenty some people coming out to our house for thanksgiving. Two people are my nephew's friends who have never had a real home cooked Thanksgiving meal or a Thanksgiving out of the cities, but anyways that should be really interesting. I hope they like the food. Everyone is bringing something Sara is making pies, I am making stuffing,Jo is making potatoes and so on. What is everyone doing for their Thanksgiving? Is it going to be as crazy as ours? Tonight we just had potato soup and corn bread. Yum! It seems to be a perfect night for soup. Tonight is just going to be a relaxing night. We had soup, now we are going to watch a movie! It is so good to be back home. :)
