Christmas is not a date, it is a state of mind.

Well, Thanksgiving was a complete hit! We had way too much food, which is the only way to go on Thanksgiving! Two of my cousins and their families came over for the big feast. It was great to have family there. And it was so fulfilling to have a bunch of kids running around the house.

Christmas is getting closer. We're almost done with our Christmas shopping. I have to get Matt's present, and I have to buy Matt's gift for me! At least he's honest when it comes to the fact that he has no idea what I want/need in a jewelry box and allows me to get it myself! lol I love him! We have all the gifts for the rest of the family. I'd list them off but I'm sure they are reading this! Everything is labeled and mailed off. Hopefully they get it in time! I love this time of year...

We sign the lease on our new apartment on Monday. We can't wait! Candace, my cousin, came over and helped me start packing. We got a lot done! But there's still some left to do. The bathroom, all our clothes and bedding, and half the kitchen. That's of course not including large items like the tv or computer stuff! But we have a whole week to move stuff into the new place! This is the first move that I actually am excited about moving boxes from point A to point B. I'm hoping for a stress free move. So far so good... I think I'm even going to paint the new place! I will be taking tons of pictures...and of course posting them! So, keep your eyes open!
