Day After Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving. It was a special day since it was one of Ashleigh's (Danny's sister) first days in her NEW HOUSE! She closed just the day before! Ms. Pat (my mother-in-law) prepared some good food -- ham, turkey, dressing, mac and cheese, green bean casserole, and sweet potatoes. I ate twice. : )

We left about 7:30 as Danny had to rest up for Friday's game. He sat down and watched a game when he got home, and in between, helped me put up the Christmas tree! It's our very first time putting up a tree with lights and decorations! We've done minor stuff in the past for Christmas. (Okay. REALLY minor stuff. All I've done the past couple of years is put a bell on the door.)

Well, the decorations aren't up yet, though -- I'm doing those today. I wanted to do them last night, but I didn't quite have everything I needed (like ornament hooks!). I was excited because last year after Christmas, I hit Sears up for lots of stuff -- ribbons, ornaments, and such. I got most of that stuff for like 75% off! Well, a lot of it I couldn't use, unfortunately. I loaded up on ribbons last year, but now I'm afraid to put them on the tree since they're fabric. I have this horrible fear that the tree will catch fire. And it doesn't help that last night I dreamed the tree caught fire like five times. Yeah.

So about 9:00 this morning, I got out in the Black Friday madness to get more decorations. I went back to Sears since I pretty much wanted all the stuff to match. Got some decent prices, I guess. But I'm never doing that Black Friday thing again. First of all, I hate shopping. Then to go in there with all those people and have to park ACROSS THE STREET from the Galleria -- ugh, it's just not worth it. The good thing about it is I saw Doreni (Tommie's girlfriend) and her daughter walking to their car as I was walking to mine. It made the trip worth it since I haven't talked to her in a couple of weeks.

Went I got back from Sears, Danny wanted to go to the Carter's outlet store to get a few more items for the baby. We ended up finding a few little outfits -- hopefully one will be her coming home outfit. They are pretty little dresses. One is Christmas-colory, but I don't think she'll be big enough for it. It's a 3-month. Some of the items will eventually go back since we got two sizes in a couple of them. The entire store was 50% off, and then I had a coupon for an additional 10% off. So we got some pretty good deals.

While we were there, DK wanted to go grab some items from the Ralph Lauren outlet for Coach (his dad). So I ducked into the KB Toy outlet store. I said that Morgan would be getting one small item from DK and me for her first Christmas. Well, I'm all about learning toys. Apparently they don't start "learning" until after six months. At least that's what it seems with the toys. I only found about three learning toys for true newborns, so I had to get them all. Plus, they were buy two, get one free.

So today I've accomplished (so far) getting the rest of my decorations, some more clothing for the baby, and all of her Christmas gifts. I now have to do a little more organizing in the nursery (no, I have not finished that yet) and get all of the bags out of the kitchen (kitchen is full of stuff!). And finish the tree, of course! I'm pretty excited! I hope to come back later and post pics of the decorations.

Oh! And Hoover plays Huntsville tonight! If (or WHEN) we win this one, we go to Legion Field! Go Bucs!
