Thanksgiving Down, Christmas Here We Come!

Good morning! It is Saturday morning, but I feel like yesterday and the day before were Saturday too! All this time off has been so nice.

First of all, I'd like to give a big THANK YOU to all of you who helped contribute to my very first sweet potatoes. I combined your recipes into one very sweet casserole dish and it was a hit! I would say about 75-80% of it was eaten up... thank you ladies!

We had a great time over at my parent's house on Thursday. Alot of my cousins who I do not see often were able to make it this year so that was a fun change. The food was GOOD and so were the pies. :) I love me some thanksgiving food!

Thursday night Katie & Mo came in to start their apartment hunting. It has been fun having them here.... we are so excited that they will be living here full time.

Yesterday morning, Black Friday, Katie & I braved not one, not two, but THREE WALMARTS. Ya'll, we were on a hunt for some bedding that was cleared out of the king size. But we finally found it at WalMart #3. Ya'll.... NEVER AGAIN. I am not tolerant or patient with WalMart people. It was an adventure nevertheless, and I also got some good gifts at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Last night we went to see "Four Christmases". Very, very funny. It is a good laugh!

Today we are so excited because Chase and Ronda are coming in to spend the night with us! This is the first time they have come to Houston since we moved here and we are so happy to spend some time with them.... and sweet Ronda is just as pregnant as can be. I got lots of munchies at the store :)

Alrighty.... off to make sugar cookies with sprinkles in the shape of Christmas trees! It's the most wonderful time of the year.....


  1. Hope you are having a great time with Ronda!!!
    Love you sister!

  2. Jen! I love this might be my FAVORITE :)

    I love you sweet girl!!!
