It’s Going to Look Like Christmas

Happy Black Friday! (Oh…I truly don’t like how that sounds.)

Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one. The Crafty Dad family made the annual pilgrimage (no pun intended!) to Auburn, IN for the big feast. A good time was had by all. Lots of food, fun, family and laughter. My favorite combo-package.

After we got home, Crafty Mom made her way to the basement to supervise in the traditional “carry-the-Christmas-decorations-upstairs” event. The boys helped out as we made several trips up and down the stairs — good exercise after eating so much turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, etc., etc.,

A foyer-full of decorations.
Riley is not sure about all this!

Today is the day: decorate the house. It’s become a tradition. And I enjoy bringing the house to life with all the decorations. My mom was a HUGE fan of Christmas and always make the house look so nice. She passed away 14 years ago…and I miss her. Especially during the Holidays. I’m guessing she’s looking down from heaven and smiling as we do what she did for so many years. Miss you Mom!

The tree will be decorated tonight. Jennifer and the boys wait for my help on that one. I am the official tree light guy. I started wrapping each individual branch of the tree with lights a few years ago. Wow! Talk about a brightly-lit evergreen. I think it looks great and we continue to wrap lights from year to year.

I’ll share some photos with you later this weekend.

In the meantime…hope you find all the bargains you were looking for today. Don’t forget the ONLINE sales. Speaking of which, my Etsy store is having a 25% sale on tissue holders — that’s $1.00 off the regular price!

Have a great weekend,

Happy Thanksgiving

Hey bloggers!

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Seems there’s always something to complain about — road construction that forces us to go miles out of our way (always in a hurry, aren’t we?), ‘fast food’ places that are really not ‘fast’ and sometimes not even ‘food’, pharmacies that put our prescriptions back into inventory too soon (that just happened to me today). But…we have SO much to be thankful for, don’t we? Like a job. I love mine. And I love the people that I work with. Family? Oh yeah! Tops my list. [Love you guys!]. A place to call ‘home’. A wife that puts up with all my ‘craftiness’. Yep. So much to be thankful for.

Be safe and have a great holiday.
