Just finishing up my breakfast of champions... chips, queso, and a cherry coke (it was the most appealing option that could be eaten one handed while trying to walk Lily to sleep) and realized I should update if she stays asleep.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my aunt Dixie Lee's house. I LOVE Thanksgiving! It probably has a lot to do with my aunt Dixie Lee. She's quite a lady. Sadly, they just don't make them like her anymore. She's the only one I know that could whip up a dinner for 50 from scratch, sew some bedroom curtains and an outfit, go to visit some friends, and still have energy to go clogging at a nursing home.
I'm SUPER excited for Christmas this year... even more than normal. Maybe its from having a daughter or having our own house to decorate. I popped in the Christmas c.d. that Suzanne made for me on about November 9th... I'm making the season last as long as possible. Jeff is insistent upon having a real tree... however, he was quite disappointed to find that we'd have to drive over an hour to cut one down ourselves. I got to give him a glimpse of my tree choosing memories by traveling up to our local grocery store and paying $30 at the register and carrying off one of the 8 trees that they had leaned up against the side of the store. Jeff seemed a little depressed loading it into the family mini-van. Maybe when Lily's older we can put the extra effort in and drive to Bastrop...although she might not want a tree in her face when she's old enough to know better.
