Thanksgiving Week Begins

It’s been a busy week or so, and I posted a lot of what’s been going on during the last week. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever posted five times in one week before! What I didn’t mention is that we also had three daylong meetings at work, trying to finalize important decisions we’ve been evaluating.

And now, as we head into the Thanksgiving holidays, I’m not feeling like I can slow down much! I’ve still got assignments from last week’s meetings I have to follow up on, and several things I need to wrap up before Thursday.

We started a tradition several Thanksgivings ago where we give the girls a Christmas book, along with a holiday home décor item (or two or three). I’ve found the book already (Christmas for a Dollar—sweet story), and I know what project I’m going to give the girls.

(Daughter spoiler: If you’re a Gardner girl, stop reading now if you want to be surprised on Thursday!) I’ve decided to make them each a Ho Ho Ho banner (the large one I showed last week). I love my new banner and want each of the girls to have one of their own.  

Sterling and Shanna left today for a two-day horseback ride, and I have to admit that secretly I’m looking forward to having the house to myself. I’m planning on working during the day and staying up late at night making the banners.

So, don’t be surprised if I don’t do much posting this week. I’ve got my work cut out for me for the next couple of days, and then once the holiday hits, I’ll be loving every minute with my family. Of course, I’ll check in this week—just not five times!
