Tree Time!!

Hi Everyone!! I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
Ours was eventful, as usual whenever we go to my parents house. Caleb dislikes them both.. Especially my Mom. He was not a happy camper. He did really like my SIL Cherith and my niece Gracie but shyed away from everyone else. Fun fun!
It took him about two hours before he would get down and walk around. I don't know what it is but he just does not like their house, It's kind of freaky! I wonder if there really is such a thing as kids sensing bad spirits and things? I mean, I just don't understand it. He loved Doug's Mom and sister. He had no issues at all staying alone with them. I just don't understand it and am really hoping it's just a phase.
Anyway... We won't be going back there for Christmas. I think this year we will just stay home, just the three of us :)
My sausage/cream cheese/spinach Croissants were a hit at dinner.. I took those and pecan pie. Everything was really good, I impressed myself, tee hee :)

This afternoon we started the chore of putting up our Christmas Tree. So far not much is done but that's because I keep taking breaks, LOL. I'm such a lazy butt, tee hee. Anyway, Caleb is thrilled with the lights and I've gotten some good video of him playing with them.
Also, I've made ten more Christmas cards today and expect to make another ten this weekend. YAY me!!! ;)

OH! My friend got me this from Michael's.. It's the limited edition Martha Stewart snowflake punch. I love it and highly recommend it. I must admit, her punches are really sturdy and seem stronger than other punches I've tried.

I want to get these, too. These would look so great on cards!! Man, now that I look, Martha has some really great punches and they are cheaper than the Fiskars punches, I think. Nice!

Well, I am off to eat Chinese and finish the tree. What a great night! :)
