I hope my Finny will love on me like this 30 years from now... aww, so sweet, Dan lovin' on his mother. :) I could so black mail him with this picture too, although I won't...

Here's Finn & his DeDe looking through the sale adds making his Christmas list...

Here's a picture of us from last weekend's MADD banquet. Actually a pretty decent picture.

Who need's to make a Christmas list when boxes are SO much fun!?

We're hiding a neighbor's Christmas present in Finn's closet & this is the box it came in. He has just played & played with it.. Now he's made it into a slide.

Life here has been pretty good. We stay busy with our schedules. Always working opposite shifts & not seeing each other much get's old really fast. It's hard on a marriage. I won't lie. But, we do the best that we can & hope and pray one day Dan will be on day shift.

I'm hoping this will be a slow week this week for work. Dan has off Thursday & Friday where I only have off Thanksgiving this year. We're going to Cracker Barrel Thanksgiving day and then we'll do a big meal next weekend here at the house. My mother-in-love and I are planning our shopping strategy for Friday morning. Last year my dad & I headed out at 4, this year Target opens at 4. Yikes! I think we're only planning on going there & Academy. But, who knows???

I do believe that Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. I just love everything about it. I love Christmas but think it's sad how commercialized everything is & how it's all about present's. My parent's won't be coming down till January so we won't be seeing them at all for either holiday. I think that's a 1st. Sad. :(

Dan's working on the shower, it's ALMOST ready for tile. Like, next weekend ready. YAY! It's been a very slow process as he's been working overtime everyday & even some on the weekend's. But, it's finally getting there. I'll be sure to post a pic next weekend. I can not wait to see how it's going to look.

Well, gotta run, Dan's calling me for help. TATA!!

It is hard being away from family for the holidays, but we have found out that we enjoy being alone as a family for Christmas. Since we are forced to be alone with our distance away from our families, we are able to focus on just the 3 (now 4!) of us and it's great. Hopefully having Dan's mom near by, it won't be too sad of a time for you. Enjoy your Thanksgiving at CB! I am SO jealous!! :-)
