It's the hap-happiest season of all

David and I spent Thanksgiving together at home.  We had turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing (ok I cheated and made Stove Top), rolls, and cranberry sauce (the awesome kind that plops out of and holds the shape of the can).  David did an awesome job with the turkey.  It was the first time he'd made a turkey but you wouldn't have known it for as great as it turned out.

I went Black Friday shopping with a couple of friends this year.  We all got some good deals and made a big dent in our Christmas lists.

I spent the rest of the weekend decorating for Christmas.  I am in LOVE with our new *white* Christmas tree.  I've always used white lights to decorate our trees so this one is especially fun since I picked one with multi-colored lights.  I also traded the white lights on our kitchen tree for multi colored this year.

Yeah, that one is kinda crammed up under the cupboard but it's the only spot that works so I just pretend like it's not stuffed under there.  I couldn't get a shot of it with the lights off either.

This next tree is the one my husband bought me last year.  It holds the vintage ornaments that he also bought for me last year.

The last one is our main tree.  For some reason I'm not loving it this year like I did last year.

Now we just need some snow so it actually feels like Christmas is coming!!

I love all of your trees. The white one is stunning. I really love it! I wanted to copy your next one, with the candy ornaments, but couldn't find a bunch last year. LOVE the vintage one. And your big one is gorgeous too. You have such a good eye for decorating.

We have our large, main tree up. I have stuff to make a new year's tree that I'm really excited about, but I'm too lazy to do it.

There is rumor that we are in for a massive winter storm next week. I hope so. I hope you get snow soon!
