Done!

Decorating (and then enjoying) turkey cupcakes?  Done!



Making (and then modeling) turkey drumstick hats?  Done!



Running a 5 mile road race?  Done!  (We did it in almost exactly 50 minutes - 10 minute mile pace!)


Thanksgiving dinner with 18 people?  Done!  (My meager contributions were the appetizers and a green bean casserole and uh, heating the brown and serve rolls.  But hey, I hosted.)

Ordering my Christmas cards?  Done!

Black Friday shopping?  Done!  (6 of us brave souls began our sojourn at 5am.  3 of us were pros--me, my Mom and my Sis--while the other 3 girls were Black Friday virgins.  We did our part to stimulate--heh--the economy and were home before noon.)

Introducing my mother to her first espresso martini?  Done!


Frosting (and licking) Christmas cookies?  Done!




Decorating the Trenches for Christmas?  Done!






NOT learning how to knit?  Done!  (Watching my Mom try to teach my Sis and Niece how to knit was kinda like watching paint dry.  Only less exciting.)


So the company is gone, the Trenches are clean and decorated, and the Christmas shopping is (practically) done.  Bring on December!  (Don't forget about my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways starting this week!)

Indeed.

[Disclaimer:  My Mom?  You know her and love her as Granny-911.  She did the turkey cupcakes, drumstick hats and cookie decorating with the boyz.  I?  Merely took pictures and cringed at the mess.  C'mon - you all should know me by now - I'm soooo not that crafty/organized/patient (take your pick).]

I am so glad that you put that disclaimer down there. But I am still going to bow down to you b/c you have your house decorated and clean and the shopping done. I wish I was that ahead of schedule.

Jennifer Juniper said...

Well, that's all done...I hate to say it, but let's move on to Christmas! (sorry, I had to throw that in there since I'm stressing)

Looks like you guys had a GREAT time this Thanksgiving. I saw you at Walmart amid all the craziness but there was a sea of people around us so I couldnt make my way over to say HI! Congrads on the race.

Amy said...

Well Happy Belated Thanksgiving! Those cupcakes look awesome. I seriously want one prety bad right now.
