good morning! it's cyber Monday - an idea I pretty much scoffed at all weekend, until I started shopping online this morning - and I've pretty much finished all of my Christmas shopping here at the kitchen table in my pajamas! 

it's a good day. 

Thanksgiving weekend was blissful. We got to have daddy home for 4 whole days, spent a day and two nights with friends, completely re-organized the boys' room, put up our Christmas tree, and played board/card games with the kids.  mmmm.  The downside is that both boys have come down with nasty coughs; though they seem to be happy to miss more days of school as they sit in their jammies and play Viva Pinata and eat cinnamon rolls.... 

We haven't had a live tree in awhile, and also this is the first time ever I've had a Douglas Fir tree. It's very bushy! very, very bushy.  But it has the appropriate smell, so it's all good. 

this is one of the felt pockets made by my friend, Catherine, for her advent calendar. I was feeling like a huge loser about not starting mine yet (seeing as how it's Dec 1, today), but I'm so glad I waited because some of her designs are just beautiful and I'm eager to copy them. 

as soon as I get some laundry done, so I can get dressed...

Wow! I can't believe you're done. I always struggle with what to get for Jared. Everyone else is easy.

What a great Thanksgiving you had!! How did you fit it all in??

We just do the chocolate advent calendars. I know it's not as fun or creative, but the kids look forward to it everyday.

I'm so jealous that you already have all of your Christmas shopping done!

We're only half-way there and I STILL don't have anything for Steve... Oh well, still 20 days to go.... still time!
