Aww, I love when Cloud sleeps in my chair.

It's his favorite napping spot. <3 kitties.

Well alright.

Thanksgiving has passed and now comes Christmas. Got to say, I'm pretty darn excited. Though, I am broke and probably won't be able to buy many gifts. I am sure it will all turn out well. We're expecting to have a massive tree this year and Mas's mom is going to have it "snowed". It's supposed to be delivered tomorrow afternoon, so I'll be taking pictures a plenty. Once I get home from work, I may have to decorate it myself. Although, I've got a feeling that it may get done before hand. Everyone seems pretty excited about Christmas.

Our Thanksgiving went well. I baked 16 pumpkin pies the night before and woke up bright and early to start the turkey. We wanted to have a Thanksgiving lunch rather than dinner. Mas stayed in the kitchen and kept me company which made it all the more better. I dread cooking alone in the kitchen. It just gets so boring. Company makes it go by much faster and it's just more pleasant. We watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and we made our own commentary. It was lovely. We didn't have much of a spread on the table because our table chairs are all broken. We only have 3 left so it was decided everyone would gather round the table, talk about what they are thankful for, and then go about their day and eat wherever they wanted. I won't go into too much detail, but after everyone had eaten a bit, there was a bit of a scuffle that went on for some time. It was pretty insane, but everyone seems fine now. I just hope it's all done with and Christmas goes well. Anyway, here are a few snapshots of our day, before the craziness.

Alright then, I'll be off now. I'll see if I can get around to posting something a bit more interesting. I must say, I  envy them cool blogs with cool stuff and cool people. Ah well. Later gators.

I have not made good on ANY of my promises it seems. Well, I don't actually remember making promises, but I said I would try harder to do stuff. I have simply not tried at all. Ah well, It's the end of the year and frankly, I just don't care anymore. All I can think about now is how I'm going to get by the next couple of months. I've been sort of laid off from work and I managed to get myself a holiday job, unfortunately, said holiday job is not going to be able to provide decent hours. So, either way, I'm in a bit of a financial pickle. It's not that big a deal really. My guy is more than capable of handling our finances alone, but it just doesn't seem fair to me and I love being able to contribute. Especially during the holidays. Which brings me to another subject of great stress. I have no idea what to buy for the people I love this year. Mas keeps saying he doesn't want anything, but I love buying him gifts. So for the past 4 or 5 hours all I've done is browsed around Amazon, Ebay, and Etsy. Got a few ideas and I think it's gonna turn out well. I'm just super excited. This is the time of year I love most. Sweaters and coats. Baking and snuggling. It's awesome!

This is the part where I make a few vows and then 3 months later I come back and say how I didn't work on either. That's just how I work. Vow 1! Sew more. Vow 2! Band name. I can't think of anymore. Oh wait, I got it. Vow 3! Take more pictures and videos. I've got to remember to use my camera more often. I must! Alright, that's it for now. I'll be back. Eventually.
