Finally in the Spirit

I am so full right now it's not even funny! We had turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, beans, asparagus with mushrooms, rolls, fruit salad, and stuffing. And of course there was pie at the end - chocolate and pumpkin. The pumpkin I ate because #1 I love it and #2 Thanksgiving just isn't the same without it. The chocolate I ate, well, I'm a chocoholic!!!

Now that turkey day is done, it is officially time to begin with Christmas! I'll be out shopping in the morning after I take C to work. I thought about hitting a few store before he goes to work, but I'm not a morning person. Add that to the craziness of Wal Mart on Black Friday...well it's just not a good match! My mom used to come home with horror stories every year about the nutty people at Target and Wal Mart. One year she wanted to get me a 5 disc CD changes/radio/tape deck. It was $40, which was a sweet deal but when all you hear while you're shopping is merchandise breaking and people screaming you really have to wonder if it's worth it. I know Wal Mart has a good deal on a DS that we want to get GG, but I think I would rather live than die trying to save 30 bucks!

I can also now start to watch my favorite Christmas commercials. And if I don't see my favorite this year, I'm going to be a little upset. Somehow I missed it last year. But in case I miss it, it's on Youtube. Altho it doesn't really have the same feel as when you see it on tv.

I smile every time I see it because I think it really shows some true Christmas spirit. It's not about giving or getting the biggest gift. It's about sharing and helping those in need

And don't forget about this little guy!

Stopping by from SITS! You are smart about black friday. We did Target and it wasn't that bad but WalMart was horrible!
