Hello my name is Drea. I thought I may need to re-introduce myself to those of you out there that haven't seen me (mostly just you at church) in a few weeks due to the fact that every weekend one of us has to be sick.... and the past TWO weekends that some one was ME!!! I had the stupid stomach bug again!!! This time it wasn't just me - it was half of JD's extended family. Though I do still have a small, dull headache (I am sure it is my body saying GO TO BED YOU DUMBY!) I am much better. Christmas program is this weekend.... lets see if we make it!!
We had a great Thanksgiving (minus the sharing of the cooties) We got up early and went to see my Maw Maw and Paw Paw. I helped cook (they have supper so we didn't actually get to eat...) I loved getting to spend time with Maw Maw in her kitchen. That is something we did ALOT when I was a kid- she would let me make whatever I wanted to- and she always knew what to substitute ingredients for if you were missing something- this was a plus since she couldn't drive to the store and I wasn't old enough too :) JD and Paw Paw chatted up some football (lets not speak of THE GAME!!) and the kids ran around like loonies- climbing trees , playing hide and seek..... and eating a WHOLE apple - core and all (that would be Kaden- if you haven't noticed he likes to eat :)
From there we went to eat lunch with JD's family. My bff's and their fams came to eat with us- I love it that they come to be with us- they are US!! We ate and ate and ate some more. We then headed out to Michael's for their pre-black Friday sale. We always get some shopping in on Thanksgiving- it is a tradition- but this year we skipped on K Mart and Big Lots. I got almost all of my wrapping paper and some cute pre-lit trees for outside my front door- oh and some glittery picks for my vase in my kitchen (that is already shedding red glitter dust EVERYWHERE!!)
I did to the Black Friday thing- ALL night long (11 pm until 10:30 am) Needless to say I was a ZOMBIE for the entire day- which was a good thing considering I missed most of that horrible game (the one we aren't talking about remember?) I got home and realized that most of the shopping that I did was for every one else (gifts from Granny, Granna, Nanny, etc.) Very few of my purchases helped me mark MY list off. That's ok though.... it was kind of like shopping with some one elses money- which we all know is WAY more fun than spending your own!
I reached death and back all day Saturday (exaggerated yes- but I was pretty sick) and have tried recovering today. ( A fresh coat of Clorox and Lysol has been spread over my entire house AGAIN) I did not feel like cleaning but could not stand not too all at once. JD was like " What are you doing?" but he never stopped me either. He did his version of "cleaning" Saturday- I think he saw that my version was much more thorough.... oh well.... he tried....
I will do a pic post later.... I am going to bed now.....
(and Heather this post is just for you- at almost midnight- because I knew I was going to be gone and super busy all day tomorrow and your Monday would not be the same without hearing from me :) lol.... just kidding.... now get to finishing those Christmas outfits so we can all be green with envy over your mad sewing skills.... :)
