Happy Thanksgiving!

I can't help it. I know that Thanksgiving is just 2 days away, and although I'm VERY excited to make and eat all the pie... I'm even more excited to put up Christmas decorations this weekend. I've been occasionally listening to Christmas music and have been loving hanging out in the stores that are all decked out for the Holiday. Half of my Christmas shopping is already done and by Friday, all of it (hopefully) will be finished. I love Black Friday. Its like all my primal instincts come out and shopping becomes fun again. Hmmm... Maybe its the lack of sleep and extra dose of sugar from the hot chocolate specifically bought to keep me warm while I stand in line outside store at 4am?!

Today I thought it would be appropriate (because I am making PIES today) that I take a moment out of my Festive Frenzy to wish everyone a Happy Turkey day. May your buttons burst and your stomach expand from all that wonderful food!! Loves to all my friends and family especially! You are my joy. I love you and miss you.

T's got another case of the funnies:

Mom: No T, you may not have a cookie as you didn't eat your dinner.
T: That's alright Mom, I'm not sad. I'm thinking of Jesus.

And then, while Hubby is putting her to sleep:

Dad: Ok, T. Time for prayers.
T: "...Please bless Mom & Dad wont be so mean to us. ..."
Dad: How come you think we're so mean to you?
T: Because you never let us stay up and play games. You always make us go to bed at night time.
Dad: *singing a bedtime song*
T: NO Dad! I'm going to sing it tonight.
Dad: OK, T. Go ahead.
T: I'm going to sing it in Spanish.
Dad: Oh? Ok.
T: Nasli ahhh. Budutana clah clinnaaaa.
Dad: Oh T. That was beautiful! I didn't know you knew Spanish.

Quote of the Day

Mom: "Hey T, what do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas?"
T: "Well, we need to fire him because he brings us the wrong presents!"
