Happy Holidays

Can you believe the holidays are upon us once again? It's becoming quite the cliche, but this year has just flown by. Normally, we don't put our Christmas decorations up until the weekend after Thanksgiving, however, this year I was just feeling it early. Chris pulled the stuff down Sunday and over the next few days the tree got decorated & the stockings hung. I love the holiday season, but I don't really have a lot of decorations. As long as the tree is up & lit, I'm good. Jboy helped trim the tree this year. Needless to say, the bottom has a lot of ornaments. I'm trying to reign in my OCD & just leave it alone. It's the first time he's helped so it's a fun memory.

Today was the Thanksgiving Feast at Jboy's school. I signed up to bring cupcakes & was originally just going to do fall themed sprinkles, but then I saw Miriam's blog & was inspired by the cookies she made for Micah's school's feast. After a late night trip to WalMart & Kroger I was able to get the supplies & I think they turned out super cute. I wish I could've gotten Jboy's reaction on video when he saw them this morning. He thought they were too funny.

The kids decorated pillow cases for "Indian" costumes. Shouldn't it be "Native American"? Anywho. I couldn't get the boy to look at the camera & smile to save my life. He was having too much fun eating & playing with his friends.

This picture cracks me up. This is the face of Jboy telling me something very important. I have no idea what he was saying, but I see this face a lot.

This next picture turned out really cute. I think I took about 10 of him with this turkey before I finally got a good one. He just wasn't in the picture taking mood today. Not that he ever really is.

Have you decorated for the holidays yet?

OH!! Your cupcakes look great! You crack me up with your late night grocery run, It wasn't easy to find orange icing huh? :)

Actually, I had a harder time finding the candy corn! WalMart didn't have any so I went to Kroger. At first I thought they didn't have any either, but I found it. The orange icing was the easy part. ;o)
