First Day of December

Wow! December 1st! Shall I say let the "Games Begin" or "Ready, Set, Go!"
I hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day or if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, just a great Thursday!

As planned ate until I was very and I mean very uncomfortable! 2 helpings of yams and pumpkin pie! Pretty much rolled home and woke up still full! A very successful Turkey Day. This year we did something different. We went bowling. I am tired of sitting around after we eat and watching football. I am not a real big fan of Pro football. I prefer college ball. So we went and had a great time.

This is my nephew Cameron with Ed. Cam wanted to beat Ed so badly. He missed by just a few pins. The winner was my brother in law Dan and guess who came in second...Yeap that would be Me and (my mother in law). This is one sport that Ed can't seem to beat me at. He beats me at everything else but not bowling And guess what I don't let him forget it! Not just by one pin either... 132 to 118! LOVE IT!
We decided that we will make this bowling thing a tradition. Gets the food moving down. If you get my drift!
Since Ed and Jaxon went motorcycle riding for the weekend,Makenna and I got up early and hit the stores. We also went to Laguna Beach and Fashion Island for the day.
It was a glorious day down at the beach. We certainly are blessed where we live. Here are a few pics.
Mak and I had a great weekend together. Hard to find something to do with a 15 year old girl without spending a ton of money. We did stop here and had some of these.
This picture is so stinkin funny because I was asked to not take anymore pictures after this shot. Why I asked myself?? I don't get that. Whatever. At least their cupcakes are delicious! Worth the $3.25 for each cupcake!

I am putting on the finishing touches of my Christmas organizer. I used an accordion file, covered it with paper and then added chipboard inserts covered with paper for each file. I am going to try and be very organized this year with my shopping receipts, thank you cards etc. Hopefully this will help.

My hope for this year is that I can take some time to enjoy this beautiful time of year and soak in as many memories and blessings as I can!

Ready, Set, Go!

Does the cupcake joint not understand that they are receiving free advertising? They look delicious, where is it? Fashion Island or Laguna Beach? Glad to hear someone is going to be organized this holiday season, because I doubt it will be me! Happy December!
