Thanksgiving December 1, 2008

I love holidays.  I really do.  Sometimes, though, Zeb and I get so stressed out that they aren’t fun anymore.  Then we make up and are good to go.  It seems to happen at every holiday, but it’s pretty much always at Thanksgiving and Christmas.  (We have some funny Christmas stories.)  I hate that about the holidays, though.  Part of the excitement is the anticipation and cooking and getting Zoe ready.  Maybe one day it’ll be different…though, I doubt it.

Well, here is what we did for Thanksgiving.  For lunch, we went to my parent’s house.  (Yay…their house is finally done!)  What we didn’t know was that there was confusion, and Zeb’s parents thought we were coming there for lunch.  Well, we drove to Cullman after that to Zeb’s parents house.  We spent the night there, and it was nice to just hang out there Friday.  Friday we got a Christmas tree!  We didn’t steal it off of someone else’s property.  (Zeb promised me last year that we would legally get a tree this year….now that we have a little girl.) 

Anyway, we are slowly but surely getting our Christmas stuff together.  I went to Michael’s Friday night (which by the way, is the best time to still get some great sales without ANYONE else shopping), and I got two pre-lit trees for our yard for like $14!  I was so excited!!!  I always get super excited when we start putting up our Christmas stuff….it’s so fun.  I think it’ll be fun for Zoe.  She seems to enjoy looking at the lights…so hopefully it’ll be fun for her. 

I guess that’s it for now.  I’ll try to figure out how to post pictures again soon.
