I love Thanksgiving! It's my mom's favorite holiday, and I am starting to agree. On Thanksgiving, you have the anticipation of Christmas to come, great food, time with family, and hopefully time to reflect and give thanks! Eric and I have our own tradition of waking up super early on Black Friday and going shopping together. Last year, we stood in line to buy my parents a Wii!
Hopefully you can find at least one helpful idea! I post them to get myself in the giving spirit. The wisemen brought Baby Jesus some pretty cool gifts, so hopefully we can give in the same spirit of love and adoration... not only to our loved ones, but to the many people who are struggling this year.
I'm hoping that a lot of the gift ideas can come from local vendors and businesses, so if you have any ideas, just leave them in the comments section!
I hope that everyone can enjoy the anticipation of the upcoming holidays. It's a little easier now that it's cooling down in Arizona!
We had a fun weekend! My mom had a beautiful party for my grandpa in their backyard, and it looked amazing! We had a great time eating my mom's delicious food, making s'mores, and chatting by their fire pit. The dogs had fun too!
Eric and I were Bella and Edward from Twilight for Halloween. I had Melissa dye my hair brown on a whim, and it worked well for my costume. We made Eric's face white and vampire like :) We had fun with friends at our casa, carving pumpkins and eating yummy food. We had a ton of trick or treaters this year. The doorbell wouldn't stop ringing! Jen took some of the photos from the slideshow. Thanks Jen!
Eric's sister, Christina, had her baby on November 3rd. Liliana Grace was 9lbs 7oz, 21 inches long. She is perfect! I will be posting a slideshow of photos very soon! I am a proud Aunt!
It's November 5th and in the 90's here in Phoenix. I had to wear dress clothes to a meeting, and I immediately came home to put on my SHORTS. I love it, but I'm ready to wear sweaters with my flip flops. And maybe a scarf if it drops below 55.
