WOW! It's only 3 Weeks to Thanksgiving!

It's so hard to believe that we are just around the corner from Thanksgiving and Christmas. Halloween was just last week and even before Halloween was over the stores were stocking decorations for Christmas and the infamous Christmas catalogs were arriving in the mail. My grandson, Aiden, has gone through the ToysrUs and marked everything in it except for the "girls" stuff. He has a birthday Friday and he'll be 5 and it seems like only yesterday I was holding him right after birth.

Had the greatest Halloween with family and co-workers.

You have a burgler (Kimberly), ZZ Top (Rich), ME, witch (Cathy), and Medea (Josh)!  Don't we look great!!!!  We had so much fun and everyone coming into the Assessor's office got a kick out of us.
Now, it's time to plan our Thanksgiving with family. I love Thanksgiving because I have all my family in one place for lunch and then we proceed to head out to shop for Black Friday. We used to get up at 2am to arrive at our first stop but now with hours changing we eat lunch and then head out before 4pm on Thanksgiving Day! We weather the cold and even sometimes rain but we come home with cars filled and our lists shorter.  We will gather in the living room either right before we eat or right after and take all the sales papers and map out our plan of action. Where we will stop first and where we will end up when it's all over. We usually don't return home until the next afternoon.
I'm also preparing for some Vendor Festivals coming up the next two Saturdays. Getting my cards and gifts ready along with getting my upcoming schedule filled. I'm also going to start some Stamp Clubs before Christmas and hope to carry them through the New Year! I'll be posting on my new upcoming plans. Stay in touch!
