Thanksgiving is here again. I love Thanksgiving, so laid back, no one stressing. It's everything Christmas should be, I believe. Not that I don't love Christmas, don't get me wrong. I do! Without Christmas, where would I be? Right? I'm not even 100% sure what is on our menu. Food. Turkey. Hey, as long as we're together it'll work out. Oh, and my mother in law's dressing. That's a holiday must have. I've tried to get my own birthday dinners planned where she makes a batch of it, but I just get eye rolls from Jay. Maybe one day. When we get past Thanksgiving and the party- next weekend is Hannah's surprise birthday party. Sshhh- she, nor her brother, knows about it! The next weekend we have The Nutcracker, which is going to be awesome because Hannah's Christmas outfit is simply stunning this year. Previous years she has not dressed up for our theater date, but last year she noticed all the little girls gussied up and asked if she could this year. She'll be gorgeous. Only thing is we're in the balcony this year, for some reason, in a RECESSION, the Nutcracker tickets doubled! :(
The following weekend is Hannah's "real" birthday weekend. She doesn't know it yet, but that Friday we're going to get her ears pierced. I was going to do it Saturday but the girl at Claire's said it would be better to do it Friday. Then Sunday the 20th is her birthday so we'll so our traditional Sunday lunch at the Mexican restaurant. Maybe I'll get a group together. Then that week is Christmas. We'll have some running to do but not a whole lot I don't think. I'll have a breather until January 2nd which is Jackson's birthday. Somewhere in the middle of all that Ill be planning his birthday ... stuff. We're still not sure what we're going to do with him, lol I just can't believe he'll be 11!
I'll try not to be scarce in the next month, and will come bearing pictures!
