Thanksgiving Day

was perfect because we had great food, family and friends... My DH made a fried turkey this year and it was a total hit. It was juicy and tasted heavenly. The side dishes were out of this world too. My brother gave a beautiful speech that made me teary eyed. All in all it was a wonderful day. The great part for me was that I was able to enjoy myself in one place without having to worry about going anywhere else.

Black Friday was a good... I bought a lot of great stuff at great prices. Thankfully I didn't need to worry about buying electronics because I had already bought that stuff so I didn't need to make the long lines for those. Damaris and I walked, talked and spent some dough. I went home, took a long need nap and started wrapping up presents.
Look at the cute bags I made for presents. I stamped the brown bags using this Stampin Up roller with this ink pad. I love how easy it is to decorate a bag for any occassion. I'm still wrapping but I'm way ahead of the game.

My mom decided to stay a couple of days longer with me. I love it when she comes over so we made crafts together. I grew up watching her create stuff and let me tell you she's got skills. We spent hours talking , laughing and creating. I even had D'Angelo make an ornament for a school project.

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree... Oh how I love my Christmas tree... We bought it last night and it was the fastest tree we've ever picked out... On the first try.

If you read this far... Thank you...
I'm off to beautify myself for my Christmas photo session later with Margie at Schnebly's Winery. I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend. I know I sure did.
Have a happy week.
