Easton's preschool Christmas program was last night (that's him in the middle with the red plaid shirt). He did such an awesome job - knew all the motions and all the words! He just loves school, and he got to be next to his two friends, Hayden and Caleb.

Maybe you can't tell from the above photo...here's a better look:
That's right...the trash! Dawn, this is going in my "25 days of Christmas" scrapbook under Day 17...and yes, I have been faithful and have taken pictures - they are not in the book yet, but I have been documenting everything!
Also, here is one of the gifts I made over the weekend - hope they don't read my blog!
We are supposed to get quite a bit of snow tonight...maybe a snow day on the last day of school before break - I'm ready!!!

Am planning on making some handmade Christmas gifts this weekend - my friend Sheila showed me an awesome tree project from Two Peas...Jennifer McGuire used scraps of paper, circle punches, and a spray bottle of water. Am hoping to pick up some supplies tomorrow and have the boys help me with the project.

I have to name 6 Random Holiday things about myself.
1- When we were little, we always got to open a gift on Christmas Eve...it only took me 20 years to realize we ALWAYS got pajamas!
2- One of my favorite holiday traditions is that my mom gives each of us an ornament every year...it was something my Great Grandma used to do, too! When the boys are old enough to leave my house, they will have enough ornaments to decorate two trees!
3- Every year for Christmas on the Muffley side, we would have shrimp cocktail and ham sandwiches...and Grandpa always put butter on the buns first.
4- It wasn't Christmas until the smoke detector went off at Grandma Huff's house!
5- My favorite gift growing up was the Cabbage Patch kids my mom waited in line for hours to buy!
6- I hate real Christmas trees.
So, there you have it! Thanks, Dawn, for making me actually blog!
In other news, Matt is having his tonsils removed tomorrow - hope the recovery is quick! There's nothing I hate more than a sick man (or should I say taking care of one).

One thing we will will be doing today is documenting some of our Thanksgiving memories. We are spending the day with my mom's family, and I plan to take a picture of each person there. I also have a handout (teacher in me) for each of them to fill out, asking them their favorite Thanksgiving day food, fondest memory, what they are most thankful for this year, etc. I plan to make a scrapbook (and hopefully one for my grandma, too, for Christmas).
Even in the hard times our country is currently facing, we each have so much to be thankful for. Enjoy the day!

On a whiter note, the boys awoke to quite a bit of snow this morning. I snowed off and on last night, but there was a good 5-6 inches this morning! And here in Indiana, the first sign of snow means slower traffic - it seems that people forget what it's like to drive in this type of weather. I often think driving slower is more dangerous, but that's just my personal opinion (not that I speed or anything, mom).
Hope you have a great night! Pictures to post tomorrow!!

It was a beautiful night for Trick-or-Treat! Our town had it on Thursday...our subdivision was so busy! Easton and Bullseye were troopers - he walked the entire time, dragging Bullseye's feet behind him! Evan had fun with his friends (I can't believe how quickly he is growing up!). And now, it's November already! Where has this year gone???
