I'm leaving in the morning to go out West for a few days. Next Wednesday, we'll all pile into multiple vehicles and go to Fredericksburg where we've rented a little house for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Before we leave town Wednesday, we're picking up all of our side dishes and a couple of pies from a local (down home cooking) catering place. On Thursday morning, Jess & I will throw a turkey in the oven, heat up our pre-made side dishes, pull the desserts out of the fridge and we're done (yay!). We might even use paper plates (I know, I know . . .). I love Thanksgiving, but as we all know, it's a lot (a lot!!) of work, so I'm really looking forward to this. As I've mentioned before, we love Fredericksburg, and there will be a lot of fun holiday things going on next weekend. And I think we might tour one or two of the wineries in the area (Becker & Fall Creek) while we're there -- have been meaning to do that for a while now. And do you think we can talk the guys into going to the Luckenbach Thanksgiving Dance Saturday night -- we'll see ^v^.
So, I've been trying to get my Christmas decorations done before I leave, but so far, I've only managed to get my little conglomeration of Santas to their post by the front door and the kitchen mantle done.
(one down! looks like a rushed job, doesn't it? crooked pics & trees - oh well ^v^)
(found these little letter blocks on Ebay the other day -- been having fun with them)

I'm going to try to finish today, so guess I better step away from the computer. Wish me luck!
