It's beginning to look alot like a Christmas!!

We hosted out first Thanksgiving this year. And i'm happy to say it was a success.. Even though both of us were sick. I have shingles, and ian has a cold :(. Lets just say shingles suck.. and im hoping the spots are gone before Maui... The pain lasts for awhile though.. I go back to the doc on wed. But back to turkey. We had 3 different kinds of pie pumpkin, cherry, and pecan, stuffing, greenbean casserole, homemade cranberry, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, and of course turkey!! It was all really good.. I am actually enjoying cooking. I made Turkey and Dumplings for dinner tonight with the leftover. And they were good.

Last night was Dads 50th bday party, and it was so great. It was a surprise party, and boy was he surprised!! I thought he would get mad but he didn't, not even when the belly dancer came out. And his present was perfect!! Heres a few pics
Our house is decorated for Christmas now.. The tree is almost done. Its up and the lights are on.. ornaments will go up tomorrow. The outside lights are up to, along with a blowup snoopy..
It looks a little different now, the top lights wouldn't stay up because of the wind.. But thats ok i still like it alot. I'm so happy that we have our own house to decorate how we want.. We saw santa at Kennelwood and had our photo taken as usual
And today we went to Petco and did pictures with the picture people.. That was fun.. Pics to come soon.... Oh and MAUI Here i come.. Almost time to start the countdown to paradise!! Can't wait.. .

Hello Again

Been a while since i have blogged.. We had our Haunted Housewarming Party and it was great!! Thanks to the family and friends that helped our first party be such a success..
Well now that Halloween is over.. All i have on my mind is Christmas!!
Decorating, Shopping, Music etc... It's all i can think about right now. I don't know why. We have decided to put up our tree and decorations before Thanksgiving. So it will kind of be a mash of the 2 holiday.. Thanksmas... lol.. This year will be our first thanksgiving in our new house. My parents, my brothers family, my Granny D, and possibley Ian's sister will all be coming over for thanksgiving.. I'm so nervous.. But really excited because i will finally have a reason to use our wedding china, and silverware!!
I have already started Christmas shopping... Not buying a whole lot for people this year.. but some special people will not be forgotten. :) The have appointments to get groomed and have their photos taken with Santa on Nov 21. Hopefully they can behave.. we have little sweaters and santa and elf suits.. Most likely will put them in the sweaters for the pics.
Our Maui trip is fast approaching!! I can't wait there are so many things i want to do.. But it will just be great to have a week with Ian when we have nothing to argue about... I refuse to be in a bad mood in MAUI!! Not allowed.
I have also taken up a new hobby. My mom gave me my Christmas present early.. She bought me my sewing machine!! It's alot of fun, and a great way to spend my extra time. I made my first project and it turned out pretty well. I'm thinking i will try to make Christmas Stockings next... Wish me Luck
