Snowed in for Thanksgiving

 We were planning on going to visit family and friends in Montana for the holiday, but due to bad roads, we decided it would not be wise.  We pulled a turkey out of the freezer and did some quick cooking and came up with a fairly decent feast.

While we were snowed in, we made a snowman (snow-thing?), watched movies, strung a popcorn garland for the Christmas tree, went sledding, and made turkey-cookies.  We had fun naming our cookies... road kill turkey, drumstick turkey, angry chinese turkey, etc...

We also got out the Christmas decorations and hung up the outdoor lights.  We only have one tree big enough to put lights on, and it looks like a lone, Charlie Brown tree.  Instead of going into the woods to cut a Christmas tree, we went to Broulims and spent $35 and bought one.  I was so happy to not have to go out on the nasty roads!!!!!  So, our tree is up and decorated, the stockings are hung, and we are ready to have more celebrating!

It's my birthday!

My birthdays aren't much different from any other day. I don't usually like to make a big deal of it, but at the same time, it's nice to be remembered.  I've enjoyed all the e-mail and facebook comments today!  Mostly, what I wanted for my big day, was to have a quiet day at home.  I had to run out a few times, but it's been so nice to putter around the house!  I have a sinus infection and it's great to be kind of lazy today.  Tonight Tony and I are ditching the kids and going to IF for dinner and some shopping.  Wooo-hoooo!!!!  Then back home for pie with the kids.  (cake isn't really my favorite).  Maybe next year, for my 40th, I'll whoop it up a bit more.  Anyway, it's good to get a little older... it sure beats the alternative!

It's my birthday!
