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.
