Happy Holidays!!!

I am so excited Thanksgiving and Christmas are here already.  This year for Thanksgiving we kept it simple.  My brother came to stay with us and we all went to Cracker Barrel for lunch.  It was so cheap!!!  All 4 of us ate for $27 plus tip and it was good!  When Thanksgiving comes that means Black Friday. I love the excitement of deals and midnight shopping.  This year I took a 3 hour nap got up and out the door at 10:45pm.  My first stop was Walmart.  I knew it would be crazy but underestimated the economy and it's influence on deal shopping.  Everything I wanted from Walmart was sold out.  I was however able to call my good friend Kristen because she was at another Walmart.  She was able to pick up a few things I wanted to buy for Isaac there and I was so thankful.  I headed over to check out Target and possibly get in line.  The lines was so long that based on Walmart, I knew it wasn't probably worth it to attempt to get the few things I wanted.  Friday late morning I ventured out alone and I feel like I did really good.
I found this at Ross for $12.99!!  So many things inside!!  Isaac will love this.

Finally bought one of these!!  I've been wanting one for years and I loved putting everything into it.
My front door.  This is the first wreath I've ever made and it was really fun.  I'd love to make more but don't want to spend the money and I don't really have any place for another one.

The closest thing I have to a mantel.  I added mesh to my garland and I got the two white/red trees at Hobby Lobby for  less than $10 for both.
Our tree.  Dylan and I have had this tree with ornaments and lights for 6 Christmas' and we got it from Big Lots.
