Thanksgiving was great!

And I ended up being able to take the day off of work to spend with my family. I gave my double pay day to a co-worker/friend who is going out of town next weekend. He needed the extra money and I just took a vacation day.

I love thanksgiving dinner! Turkey (the best part!), stuffing, mac&cheese, corn, bread, cranberry sauce, taters. Oh, and Pumpkin Pie (the other best part!).

I miss going to my Grandma & Grandpa's house for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I always looked forward to that when I was younger. Now we live too far away to be doing that all the time.
I think I'm gonna try to get Christmas off next year and beg Chad to go to IL for Christmas day. It's only a 2 hour drive.

As for this year, I'm off on Christmas Eve for Christmas at his mom's house. And I will likely have to work the evening on Christmas day.

Ah, the holidays!

Ok, so here are some Halloween pics:

And now Thanksgiving is coming up. This is one of my favorite holidays. I love spending the day with the family and having good food (TURKEY!) and watching movies. But I don't know what time I have to work that day yet. I don't ask off of work because I get paid double time to be there. I just take what I get and hope I'm off in the evening.

Shhhhh....don't tell anyone, but I've already broke out the Christmas cd's in the car. Lmbo, I've been listening to George Straight's Christmas album. Man, I just love his voice, and he sings my favorite Christmas songs....Silent Night, Joy To The World...etc. I can't wait for Christmas!
