Just around the corner!

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is almost here?  I cannot.  It seems it sneaks up on me every single year... a little faster each time, and every single year I say the same thing..."Can you believe that Thanksgiving is almost here?"  And in another week I'll be saying, "Can you believe it's only 1 month till Christmas?"  So it goes.

Anyway, now that Thanksgiving is almost here, we are preparing 2 Thanksgiving dinners; one on Sunday and the traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner on Thursday.  I am looking so forward to it!  And then there will be so much anticipation for Christmas.  We all love Christmas time around our house.  Not one Scrooge among us.  I think we are getting a real tree this year too, I love having a real tree!  It makes it that much more special to me.  The kids have already been 'secretly' listening to Christmas music in their rooms.  They know I don't like to have it going all through the house until AFTER Thanksgiving, {I know, I'm peculiar that way} but they are anxious to listen to it at the beginning of November.  

We are officially off of school now for a whole week!  We like to take a week long break for Thanksgiving and 2 weeks for Christmas.  So everyone is all excited today!  Clara said she would like to take off for 4 years.... ahem, I don't think that is going to happen.  But she can dream.  Poor girl...still has at least 10 years of school left.

We also started up an Etsy shop {Away Down South} this week, and it's going great!  We've already made 2 online sales and 2 offline sales.  All of our items are on sale from now until Thanksgiving, so head on over and see if there is anything you might like.  If you'd like a custom order, just send me an email and we'll see what we can do.  You'll never know till you ask!

I hope and pray y'all have a blessed and joyous Thanksgiving.  May all of our hearts be turned to the One who has given us so much to be thankful for.  HE is our life and our salvation, our God!
