The Holidays are coming up!

The Holidays are sneaking up!

My sister called me tonight and discussed Thanksgiving weekend, and yipes, it came fast!

But, I'm very ready for it to be Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday! I have lots in my life I am thankful for, I'm very lucky. Lucky that I have such amazing family and friends :-) Plus, I get to spend Thanksgiving with my family every year! I love it! I'm not sure what all we are doing this year. But, in past year we have had Bingo, board games (with prizes to choose from if you win), plus we did a "turkey egg" hunt (with easter eggs) in the yard! We just always make it fun! Not to mention everyone in my family can cook, so we have an amazing buffet of food! It is amazing! I just eat and eat all day long! I hope Uncle Pat makes deviled eggs!

Then later that evening we look at Black Friday Ads and plan out the next day. We spend all of Black Friday together too, shopping for the deals. I ususally bounce around from my Aunts' cars to my mom's etc. And everyone goes for Brunch.

However, right after Thanksgiving, Christmas seems to sneak up really fast!

Christmas Eve, my mom, dad, sister, and I usually do dinner and presents together and will go to Mass. Then Christmas Day we go to Grandpa and Grandma Kunkel's for lunch. A couple years ago my family started going to see movies on Christmas too, The first one was Sherlock Holmes, since Mom, Dad, Ada and I are all big movie phanatics! Not sure what my family's plan is this year, but we are all pretty laid back and go-with-the-flow. So I'm not worried about it.

I've started addressing my Christmas Cards and putting Stamps on the envelopes, and I have made my Christmas list of everything I need to buy everyone! I do a lot of my Christmas Shopping for friends on Black Friday to save some money. I love buying gifts. I already got some bought and hidden :-)

And I'm excited because I didn't have a Christmas tree last year. I wasn't sure if my landlady would let me have a real one, so I bought a fake one on clearance last year after Christmas. So I have a tree this year! I bought some ornaments too, but I still want to make some. (I will post pictures when they are done).

I'm going to be ready for the holidays this year, no sneaking up on me this time!
