Has It Been A Week Already?

Well, wowzers.

I'm so sorry you've had to look at pictures of Lilly sucking her thumb for an entire week. If it's any consolation, I've seen over 100 hours of that same footage without even so much as turning on the computer.

And this very morning, her thumb was white and shriveled, like I envision a white grape rejected by the Welch's Factory.

Some pretty neat things have happened this week which probably deserve their own blog...and hopefully I'll get to that soon.

A few quick things...

a) I couldn't help myself any longer, so I went ahead and put up our kitchen Christmas tree.

NO, I am not forgetting about Thanksgiving, but I've decided to combine the spirit of Thanks + Giving and make it into one Ginormous Festivus this year.

It usually takes a full day to get the entire house into appropriate levels of Christmas Cheer, so I thought I'd get a head start.

My budget for Christmas decor this year is $0. 

No, you didn't misread that. I am challenging myself to creatively use everything we have and spend not even one dime to decorate. It's not like I usually allow myself an extravagant amount, but even $50 at Hobby Lobby can create a significant amount of yuletide cheer.

Last year, I did some serious post-Christmas damage at Pottery Barn when they were practically standing out front and forcing you to take stuff. Of course, I obliged!

I'm thinking I'll try to do BooMama's Christmas Tour o' Homes, so you might get to see the "creativity" (copied directly from magazines) at that time.

b) I have already Elfed Oursevles.
Not as funny as last year, but I still couldn't resist...

c) Hmmm...there isn't really a C.

It snowed last week.

Does that count?

I didn't curl up in the fetal position and pretend we live in Phoenix, so I think that's progress.

That's all for now...I promise to be back soon with some amazing Thanksgiving news. All I have to say is that Beachy Mimi is at it again...
