It was a really nice holiday . . . pretty much perfect, in fact. Thanksgiving dinner delicious and low-stress thanks to Marie Callender's, and we had the opportunity to catch up with some old friends, Oskar and Michelle, whom we haven't spent time with in far too long.
Today has been a lazy day. Black Friday? Bah. No thanks. I'll do most of my Christmas shopping online, thank you very much. Kevin is at his cousin's today, and the littles have spent a good part of the day playing out in the backyard. I got a jump start on our family holiday card today, which is usually a project unto itself every year. Maybe we'll get some Christmas decorating done this weekend (yayy, still two more days left in the weekend!). This year we are caving in and buying a fake tree. I've always been a die-hard fan of live Christmas trees, but it's hard to justify it anymore - they cost too much, die too quickly, make too much of a mess, and yeah, I feel bad being part of the masses that kill a beautiful living thing for something so superficial. So a fake tree it will be from here on out.
And that's all for now!
