Weekend Assignment

Weekend Assignment over at By the Way = When does Christmas start for you? Are you dreaming of a white Christmas just like the ones you used to know?

We start Christmas the first weekend in December, so we will be putting our tree up next weekend and decorating the house and patio. I'm ready for it all to come down the day after Christmas, but I still hear my grandma's voice saying it is bad luck if you take the tree down til after New Years's Day. Of course this is the same woman who said it was bad luck to do laundry the Friday before or after New Years, probably made up by a person who just wanted to get out of doing her laundry. Anyway I keep up all the trimmings til Jan.2 and then it comes down.

As for the white Christmas, having lived the past 10 years in the desert and now being back in the south, YES, I would love it. I want to see snow!!!!!!
So when does your Christmas start?

Photo Hunters (#26)--Hot

I do not miss the HOT AZ desert at all.

Awesome Thanksgiving Day

I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving. I got to see my oldest son, David, that I had not seen in almost ten years. It was a great day. Robert and I went over to my son Dennis' house to be with the family. My oldest son David from out of state and his dad (my ex) showed up. Now to some, this may sound awkward having my ex hubby and my now hubby in the same house all day, but it was not awkward at all. We are one of those weird families that actually all get along and moved on with our lives.
Thanks Sandee for caring enough to wonder about the move across country. I'm sick. No need for details, but it is a time I want to be with family, so we came home. That simple.
Did you find great bargains at the Black Friday sales? Let me know... I need bargains!!!
