Well, the TREE IS UP!! I posted this picture on IG Monday night. While my crew was at practice, I cranked up the music and finished the top. I had put it off because Alise insisted that we have a red star on top and there is no red star to be found in our area! Each year, I add a little something else to it and I just love the way it turned out this year! I consider myself one of the fortunate ones that can still be thankful with a Christmas tree in her living room!
Anyway, I plan on finishing up the rest of the house this weekend. I've decided to cull a lot of my Christmas things, so Goodwill will be happy to see me!
A friend of mine posted a pic of these beautiful Louisiana - shaped ornaments in her store last week. Of course, I had to stop by and check them out and I may or may not have bought a few. I just love them!
I also picked up this awesome gift for my boss this week. I had never seen these before and I'm always looking for unique gifts. These are called Away In A Manger Bath Bombs and they come with figurines of the nativity scene.
Yesterday, I had my last elementary Thanksgiving Feast with Baby Girl at school! I was pretty emotional about it by the time I got back to my car. These elementary years have gone by so fast and just the other day, Alise told me, "I can't wait to get to middle school!" #whatthewhat My little turkey has changed so much since Pre-K4 and I wish I had treasured these earlier times more. I am so proud of Alise and the young lady she is becoming.
