Yippee! We finally get to listen to Christmas music!

So here's the deal: there's a jewelry store in town that has played the SAME jingle, on the SAME day, every year for over 50 years now. It's called the B.C. Clark anniversary sale jingle, and it starts playing every year on Thanksgiving... How is this relevant? you may ask. Well... growing up, Tony wasn't allowed to listen to Christmas music until after his dad heard the B.C. Clark jingle, because his dad got tired of hearing Christmas music all year long. So - when Tony and I got married, he decided his household would have that tradition too. I have a love-hate relationship with the rule... I love it when someone else wants to listen to annoying Christmas music in July... I hate it when I want to listen to annoying Christmas music in July :)

But anyhow, Thanksgiving went well, ate too much as usual, listened to Christmas music, etc. etc. Friday we went shopping at 5 in the morning... Yes, you heard that right - little miss I don't get up until at least 8 in the morning ever got up at 5 to go shopping. It was kinda fun, but I still don't like getting up that early :) We got out house mostly decorated for Christmas later that day... Great fun!

I made our tree skirt this summer - our theme is mooses and John Deere tractors. This was my first attempt at a major sewing project, and it went better than I expected.

I'm going to gradually start posting pictures of my very adorable nephews and neices. We have 5 nephews (and one due in February) and 3 neices.

This is our next to youngest nephew - Joshua Jr. He just turned 1 this month.

Like the tree skirt! I guess I'm going to have to drop all the other projects I'm working on and make myself one, now! So much for your Christmas present. LOL

Oh, and by the way. Tell Tony he's a tyrant! Good for him for keeping you "under his thumb"!
