I Smell Holidays Around the Corner!

Is it November already?? I can't believe it's nearing holiday season again! I love the holidays, everything about them. But this year will be different. We're not so sure yet if we will be able to spend Thanksgiving or Christmas with our family in Memphis. It definitely depends on how things are going for us then and what days Hubby might be able to get off from work.  Christmas seems a bit more hopeful than Thanksgiving, though.

I've started to make other plans for our holiday time. Plans that include our friends here and intimate family dinners. H has already asked if she can start making Thanksgiving decorations to put up in the living room (The ones she made for Halloween are just now slowly coming down). So, since this turkey day could possibly be the first one I/we spend without family, I'm trying to psych myself into this reality by thinking positively. We can start our own traditions. We could have dinner with our good friends and their kids. We could serve at a soup kitchen on Thanksgiving Day. We could make our own turkey dinner and tell each other things we are thankful for.  There are definitely a few possibilities out there.

Halloween was fun. We ended up going trick-or-treating around the neighborhood behind hubby's work. H was a "candy corn witch," C was a baseball player, and I was a gangster/mobster chick. I already had the pinstriped pants/vest combo, so when I found the matching fedora I knew it was fate. Or something like that. We were running a bit late on our way out of the house that night, so I brought the camera along to take pics later. Got to hubby's work and whaddya know? The battery was dead. Ugh. I've threatened to dress the kids up again to take pics for family, but Hubbs says that would be mean.  Hey, it's not like I would promise them more trick-or-treating time or anything...

In other news, I've been following a fun blog called Natalie's Sentiments lately. The blog owner regularly hosts these online giveaways that I always forget to enter (of course). But this time, I actually caught the new post in time to sign up for it. She's giving away a pair of jeans! I love jeans.. Like, really. And seeing that all of my favorite comfy jeans are either falling off or have holes big enough for Alice to fall through, I'd say it's time for a new pair! Of course, I don't expect to win, but it would be a nice holiday surprise!

Well, my lovelies, I've rambled on enough for today. May your day be lovely and your jeans fit you well!
