Thanksgiving & Stuff

Thanksgiving was pretty hard this year. Asha was crabby and throwing fits all day and I woke up with a migraine. If you ask Asha though it was a good day so that's all that matters. We made hand turkeys for place settings and she loved doing that and we sent one to her birth mom who absolutely loved it.

We decorated the day after Thanksgiving and I couldn't believe how much Asha loved it. I can't wait to do the tree this weekend because she can really help with that. She is in LOVE with her stocking that's hanging over the fireplace. Before I hung it she walked around hugging it and saying "Thank you so much mommy for buying me this soft fuzzy stocking........ can I wear it?!! LOL She cracks me up!!

I do something called Santa mail instead of an advent calendar to count down for Christmas. It's this cute little wooden mailbox with a picture of Santa on it that I bought. Every night Santa brings something and leaves it in the mailbox for her. Well Wed. at school they had Santa there and she was telling him about everything he had brought her so far and was thanking him for it. Poor guy was probably wondering what the heck she was talking about so I asked her what he said. Ho Ho Ho. LOL She is so excited about Santa mail that she tells everyone about it. She can't wait to check it every morning.

Well I am off to work. I finally got trained on some data entry so the weeks have been going alot faster. I can't believe it's Friday already but soooo happy that it is.

On deck for this weekend is my work Christmas party and then a Kids & Santa party at my work where Asha will get to see Santa again and play games. In between all that we have to get a tree and decorate it so I will try to post pictures of all that some time next week.

Have a great weekend!!

I am glad she likes all the Christmas stuff so much : ). Your Santa mailbox sounds delightful. You are so creative. I am the worst because we don't even do an advent calendar. I feel terrible about it!
