Happy Birthday to me and Happy Thanksgiving too!

I had a birthday yesterday... I am getting old.

I can deal with it though because Kenny is soooooo much older (he is turning 30 this year!!!)

This weekend I was so lucky to have Kenny home for 2 full days (Thanksgiving and the day after) and most of the day Saturday and Sunday! Whoo hoo!

Thanksgiving day we hung out at home, watched movies and grilled up some great steaks for dinner. It was a perfect day.

The day after Thanksgiving... Black Friday... we decided that nothing was worth us getting up at 4 am so we woke up around 7 and made our way to a few stores. We found a few bargains, but nothing great. Has anyone else noticed that the day after Thanksgiving sales are getting weaker and weaker ever year?!? Anyway, our last stop was Home Depot where we bought a few pieces of lumber and some tools to make a table for the shed. We also bought a CHRISTMAS TREE! Normally we wait a few weeks into December, but we couldn't help ourselves :)

Friday night we went over to Carl & Rebecca’s for some Cajun Cookin’. Carl & Rebecca make the best Gumbo and Potato Salad and we gladly helped them eat it all :) Hannah kept us entertained explaining her fear of Santa and that she gets her beautiful eyes from Louisiana.

Sunday after Kenny got back from his flight to Eagle, Colorado (it was minus 20 degrees Celsius! Brrrrrr) we met Danny and Tonita at the Cheesecake Factory to celebrate our birthdays! Mmmmm

Once we got home, Kenny and I decorated the house a bit. It is so much fun to have everything all Christmassy… I even decorated at work today. I guess I am just in a Christmas mood! Merry Christmas everyone!
