Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Like most people we put up our Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving. We are not quite done yet, though. We still have the outside to do. I am excited to start seeing lights up everywhere. That's one of my favorite parts of the season, looking at lights.

Thanksgiving was nice. We had it at our house with most of Josh's family.
Josh and his sister braved the crowds for black friday, but were home by midnight. Then Friday morning we put up our tree with the kids. Liam napped through most of it, but I figure that was probably a good thing. I was afraid he might think since we touched the ornaments to put them on the tree, then he could play with them. He has been really good so far about not messing with any decorations. We wrapped some presents last night and put them under the tree, hopefully he won't mess with them.
After we put up our tree we headed over to my sisters house to visit with them. Our families decided this year not to have a second Thanksgiving turkey and stuff. We decided to go out to eat at a mexican restaurant my sister and her family really like. It was yummy. We had a good time.

Josh's sister had her baby shower Saturday. It turned out nice. They got a lot of nice things. Next time they come home I have all sorts of hand me downs for them to take :~)

The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out with friends, doing housework, putting up more Christmas decorations, and doing homework.
I believe we were enjoying our time off so much that nobody was ready to get back to real life. Ha ha. But we must.
I only have about two weeks left of the semester and then I have almost a month break before the next semester starts. That will be nice and kind of necessary for my poor fried, overwhelmed brain.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend.
