Lots of pics....rather long post... LOL

We had an unusual Thanksgiving this year. Since my grandpa's passing and since we did thanksgiving w/ "the Kee's" earlier we just opted out that we weren't gonna cook or do anything like we usually do. We originally planned to go camping but that fell through so we had breakfast w/ Mammy & Pappy Thanksgiving morning, then drove to Texarkana to stay w/ my parents b/c we always shop the day after Thanksgiving ( I say "we" when it's really just Josh and my parents Josh and the 50 other million crazies at 4am on a friday!). That's when 90% of our shopping gets done so that's why we go to T-town. Anyhoo, we drove there and we WERE gonna go to eat at Bryce's but I'm glad that fell through too b/c they were packed and so we ended up goin to eat at my grandparents and my aunt and uncle, who I haven't seen in like 4 years i think, from Fayetteville came in!! She teaches Public Relations ( I think) at U of A and my uncle is a Dr. there in town. Shelby LOVED aunt Phillis! LOL.. Especially her iPhone barnyard app!! LOL

Then we took a 5 generation pic... this is of my uncle Tony (dad's brother), my grandpa, Dad, me, Shelby & grandma....

Thanksgiving was good...but Shelby REFUSED to sleep AT ALL that night in the hotel. She usually does but it was awful...but how can you be mad at this? LOL...

We made it through the day....but "daddy" (Josh) was AT THE STORES at 4:30am! WE, stayed in the hotel and were up, ready and out by 8:30 am.... we SHOPPED TIL WE ALL DROPPED! We came back home, as well as my parents; they followed us back, and Shelby slept 12 HOURS LAST NIGHT!! OMG!! SCARED ME TO DEATH!!! LOL.. then we decorated the house today! :) YEAH!! we got all the inside & outside done, except my snow villages b/c I have a large collection and that takes a half day to do and we are too tired to do that's our inside decor, minus the villages.. :)

I love seeing that extra stocking hanging from our mantel! What a great Christmas this is gonna be! :)
