Tis the Season

The holiday season is in full swing! Thanksgiving was nice........first I got up and did some cooking........with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade playing in the background! The day was spent with Kenny's family. Since it was pretty nice out, we saddled up Ringo (Kenny's mom's horse) and took turns horseback riding. What a random Thanksgiving adventure........but fun!

Later when we hung out with my family, I got to spend some quality time with Alex. He is on the verge of walking! He can pull open kitchen cabinets too! Hill has her hands full! While we were there, everyone sampled my cookies, and I think they were a bit hit!

On to Black Friday: I participated in the shopping frenzy, however I DID NOT get up at the crack of dawn. I ventured out mid-morning to enjoy the rat-race that was the mall. I lucked out with a great parking spot, found some good bargains, and actually enjoyed the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping. Later dad and I ran to some antique shops.....then mom and I hit up a favorite gift shop.

For some reason, I am in a really
festive mood this year! I even baked cookies! You KNOW how rare that is! So since the holiday spirit is consuming me, I decorated the house today!!!!!!!! Vintage ornaments on the favorite vintage trees on the entry table............and more trees surrounding my favorite picture on the mantle.

I think having time off from work agrees with me!

  2. What in the world?!

    Annnyway... It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! I did not participate in holiday shopping, but secretly kinda wished for the days when I could just get in the car and go at my own pace. I bet it was fun!

    Funny, we managed to do a little decorating ourselves - the tree is up the house lights are glowing. Stockings.. check! Trinkets everywhere. Look at us go!

  3. Look at you... Miss Popular!!! My house has been aglow for a week now, loving it. I will be glad when my classes are done and I can become a little more festive. Love all the little trees, I need to take pictures and post. It is my first Christmas in my house afterall =)

  4. I was thinking the same thing Whit!

    House looks great! I would love to see your tree in person to see all the vintage ornaments. And you on a horse......glad I had a pic because not something I would really picture!

  5. Believe it or not, I actually rode a LOT when I was little!

  6. Yummy cookies, by the way. Brown is the new black, and these cookies are the new cheeseball.
