Things I love about Thanksgiving:
1. Being with Family
2. Homemade Rolls
3. Chocolate Pie
4.Being able to eat and eat all day long no matter how full you feel .... and everyone being okay with it:)
Olivia was so cute with Grandpa. She liked to share the cards with him.
Thursday night Steph and Jon came and stayed the night with us. I debated whether or not to get up and go shopping. Luckily, they didn't want to go so early. We did go shopping on Friday at about 10 in the morning and it didnt feel like Black Friday to me... Im sure at Wal-mart and Target it might have but we just went to the mall and it really wasn't that bad. It was like any other Saturday. So we were glad. Kasi and Brady stayed with us Friday night. It was so fun having family visiting us. They even made us dinner and it was delicious! Olivia warms up so quick and was such a goofy girl with them:)
Today is Mike's dads birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! So we went over for a birthday lunch and played cards. Its been such a nice, very relaxing weekend!

Olivia is all better! Yay:) But, mommy is sick now:( I hate being sick, because I feel like an awful mommy. I still play with Olivia but, you know how you feel when you are sick you just want to stay in bed and sleep and, its so hard to not kiss her chubby cheeks:)! Hopefully Mike stays healthy. I just hope I am all better by Thanksgiving! That gives me about a week to get better.... Wish me luck!

I just remember how I felt when I was at Roberts Craft with Olivia and how she choked on a balloon string, and she started shaking since she couldn't breath and I panicked because I couldn't get it out of her.Luckily Olivia was alright.Things like that just really hit you especially when its children because they are so helpless when they are that small. I keep praying that, that mom will feel alright and that her child will be fine too. I guess seeing that happen you just realize even more how important family is.

We haven't done much this week, since she has been sick, and since its been freezing. We did watch it snow for a little bit yesterday, and I did put up some more Christmas stuff. The weeks lately go by so fast to me. Maybe it's the Holidays coming up. I can't believe its already Thursday this week. Thanksgiving is in two weeks! Yay! And Christmas isn't too far. We actually have all of our shopping done! I think everyone had the same idea of getting it done early cause the stores and streets and so crazy and crowded! I'm actually glad we are done. I do love the Christmas shopping but, I hate the crowds, so at least we have got everything we needed too.

All you need for this wreath is a wire hanger and a bunch of ornaments- I didnt have all the same size ornaments but I think it still turned out cute with the different size ones- I didn't want to wait to go buy them so I just used what I had , and then some ribbon, hot glue gun w/glue:)
Take one of these...
and bend it into the form of a circle. Then, grab your glue gun and as many round ornaments in varying sizes as you can find. You'll need about 80 in all. Whenever I do my tree, I like the more unusual shapes, so it's always the round ones I have left over. Even if you don't, though, you can always find them for reasonable prices at a discount retailer, especially after the holidays.
To secure the metal cap to the ball, dab a little hot glue and press. That way, the cap will remain attached as the ornaments are strung.
Next, untwist the end of the hanger, then string one ornament at a time, making sure to alternate the placement and colors as desired. Use smaller sizes to fill in the gaps!
Check out the final result! To secure it to the door (make sure it's on the interior!), I used the hook end of the hanger, together with a little wire. Then I covered it up with bubblegum pink satin ribbon and a bow. How simple and beautiful is that?

Olivia has been so happy today. Everything has been making her laugh, its so cute. So far today we have set up what Christmas stuff we have right now, took my sister Melanie to get her eyebrows waxed- I really need to go buy another wax station, ran to the beauty supply store to get some things- I guess even though I don't do hair as much I'm still glad I am able to go buy things at the beauty supply stores, let Olivia run around, and now she is taking a nap and I need to finish cleaning my house.
