It's almost that time

Thursday is Thanksgiving and you know what that means.  Christmas shopping!  WOOT!

Yes, I'm one of those crazy people that will shop on Thanksgiving and on Black Friday.  I've been checking out the ads online and making a list of what I'll probably buy from each store.  Right now I'm making a list of things I'm considering, then I'll go through and make my actual list.  Who is the easiest to shop for?  Hands down, the youngest.  Even though she "needs" nothing, she's the easiest to shop for because there are so many neat products out there for six year olds.  The hardest?  Probably my middle one who is 11 yrs old.  The tween years are the hardest to shop for.  Not quiet a teenager but starting to outgrow the little kid stuff.  Sort of in limbo.

I'm not sure what I want hubby to buy for me.  I have some ideas of things I'd like to buy for myself since they're on sale this week and I know that hubby will stay far, far away, but I know better.  Honestly I'd be happy with only one or two small things.  I'd rather spend the money on the kids, my own and my two nieces. 

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving.  It will be just the seven of us, and we enjoy a day without any commitments.  Each day this week I'm going to make sure to think of something I'm thankful for.  Today I'm thankful for a husband who is an excellent cook.  Thanksgiving dinner is under his control and it's going to be awesome.  He loves to cook so holiday dinners are a time where he's not rushed and can spoil his wife and children.
