Buddy the Elf!
Speaking of which, we got our tree while we were home and now we are ready to get our decorating on. I will be sure to share those pictures with you (when I finally take them). We bought all of our decorations last year after Christmas knowing that they would be really inexpensive and that we would need a lot of them this year. I don't remember what all we bought so I can't wait to dig them out and see.
Tim and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We ate wayyyy too much, got to visit with family and play with the little ones, watched the Hokies beat UVA, had a bonfire, and I shopped til I dropped! I think that just about sums it up. Oh, and I realized I took 0 pictures...FAIL! We are almost done with Christmas shopping now YAY! I did catch a cold, but hopefully I can get rid of that quickly. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Did you do anything fun/exciting? Are you in the Christmas Spirit already?
