It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Wow. Where has the time gone!

We had a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner at my mom & dads. My mom made a wonderful meal. Grandma brought a to die for salad. And auntie Dawn made this amazing apple dip. We played games and enjoyed each other's company. It was great! Parker got to play with is most favorite cousins. He had a blast.

Today we spent the day helping Grammy get the Christmas decorations out. We went for a walk after lunch time and managed to get some really cool red dogwood braches. I'm excited to put them together with some evergreens for a nice holiday arrangement.

I love this time of year. It is my favorite season.

I'm working on a December Daily album - found the inspiration on this site. I have the "guts" of my album started and can't wait to document the 25 days of December.

I need to get a list of the gifts that I have already purchased + a list of the ones that I still need to buy.

Parker is wonderful. He is back at New Horizons and loving it immensely. I can't believe how in 1 day he is "himself" again. Learning, growing, discovering, and most of all being challenged EVERY day. I'm thankful to be working back at Merrill and am enjoying my job. Wow, what a difference it makes to WANT to get up and go to work every day - and feel like I am making a difference and am putting my talents and abilities to good use.

We're waiting for Auntie Kels to get here! She's spending the rest of the weekend with us. We love being together. We'll miss Graham and Bodde...

Enjoy the start to this amazing season.

FINALLY a post :) It's so great to see how Parker has blossomed only after 1 week at New Horizons. He's such a great boy. Loved how he wanted to share everything with me! SO glad to be home with my loves! - auntie
