Manic Monday

Wow, that weekend flew on by!!!

Today I am in the office and wanted to share the Chritsmas-fying of our household, but I am unable to take pics of what all went down, so I will do that tomorrow and share my weekend with you.

When I left work on Friday I drove home in Freezing Rain, which then turned into snow ALL NIGHT!! It was disgustingly pretty... that is the nicest thing I can say about snow! I don't like it and I find it really hard to pretend to, although I did admit that it put me in the Christmas spirit! After dinner we headed home, changed the room around again and put up the Christmas Tree. When I say we changed the room around, I mean we had a really tough time trying to make the room work for the Christmas tree and I am a visualizing person, so we had try all options and finally shoved the tree in the corner and called it done, until it almost fell on Mike when he was shoving it back. I am pretty sure I pulled something when I shot off the couch to catch it...

You are probably all wondering how Lux did? Well the poor little guy was shocked when he walked in the great room and saw this bright tree in our house. He was cautiously curious, but warmed right up to it. In fact I missed the perfect photo op, when he sat under the tree at the very back and just looked up at all the lights, turning his head back and forth as if he was mesmerized!

I stayed up until Midnight trying to finish that Shutterfly Calender they were offering free. The site was ridiculously slow, but I got it done just in time. I also managed to snag some Black Friday Future Shops sales online as well!!

When I got up on Saturday, I let the dogs out and found waaay too much of the white stuff!! The dogs were thrilled!!

And after Gracie refused to come in when I called her because she was too busy frolicking around in the yard, she begrudgingly came in because her feet were soo cold:

Maybe next time she will come when I call her, but probably not!

Saturday M worked in the morning, but then we had to get ready to go to a funeral. M's Uncle Hudson passed away after a long battle with various illnesses. He will be missed by many. It was nice to see the family though all in one place sharing various memories.

We did some Christmas shopping afterwards as well as groceries, came home had a bowl of soup and watched some of the many episodes of The Kardashians I have pvr'd. I don't even know why I watch that show, but it does make me laugh out loud at some of the antics.

Sunday morning we were up by 8:30, back to the farm for 9:30 for a pancake breakfast. M helped his mom make pie pastry, while I phoned Bell and made some Christmas arrangements!! We came home, had some lunch and officially started Christmas-a-fying!!!

If you follow me on Instagram then you will have seen the sneak peak of the tree, but stay tuned tomorrow for the details!

I will be honest I haven't found myself any amazing cyber Monday sales yet at all? Did you? Let me know!

In the meantime, Lily wanted to share a picture with you all!

I am soo happy she is here with us celebrating this year. Soo blessed!!
