  • It's really sad that Thanksgiving is over taken by Christmas. I start after Thanksgiving with the decorating. It's sad that these beautiful holiday and family time months go by so fast. We have so much to be thankful for that Thanksgiving should be taken more seriously.

  • I'm going to "try" to wait until Thanksgiving weekend to start putting them up but the boxes are already in the living room thanks to an estate sale where I got some neat Christmas stuff and virtually no storage here. We'll see what happens.
