i love december



we had a fabulous thanksgiving. we took lots of pictures to document everything we could. just like always. i've been unpacking, doing laundry, running errands and pulling out christmas stuff... well mainly i've been cleaning. i feel like i am ocd. i need to get rid of stuff all the time. it's like a bad itch or something. anyway at least my house will be spotless by the time it's decorated. we brought back bunches of mistletoe from grant's home. it grows in his backyard. we hung some up and every time i look up at it i get excited about christmas. last night we started playing our favorite christmas music on vinyl. which makes for quite the christmas spirit. i'm in the mood to fill up the cookie jar with lots of treats. especially so visitors will leave here with a smile.

Oh. And I, too, hope you fill the cookie jar with treats. Not that I visit your house? But maybe if you filled the cookie jar I would.

Cute owl!!! Thanks for your sweet comment. And yes, I love having Cohen as my little buddy all day everyday :) Ha he's the best. And I liked that second post of pictures better too and feel like it "shows" how we are more too.
I'm glad you had a great thanksgiving. And glad I was able to see you TWICE while I was home! What a great idea of going to movie, love it, so glad I saw it. And we just always have good talks Britt, I wish we could do it more. And wish me and Cohen could come eat cookies with you out of your cookie jar. Well, I guess just me cause Cohen can't have cookies yet.
I love dejunking! And just did some of it today too. It feels so good. I really honestly think I'm ocd about a few things too.
Love you TONS ;)
