The kids have 1/2 day of school today, I have a nail appointment and then will pick up a few things from the grocery store. Late this evening . . . Sis and I will be making pies . . . sweet potato and apple . . . totally homemade.
Sis absolutely loves to bake pies . . . she will be working on those along with me.
I am excited to begin our yearly tradition of "The Shelf on The Elf" - we named ours Max. The kids love to see where Max is hiding for the day as he moves around for the kids to find each day. It is such a cute little tradition.
We also try to watch Christms videos beginning at Thanksgiving. Some of our favorites are:
- Home Alone
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- The Nativity
- Tangerine Bear
- Charlie Brown
- It's A Wonderful Life
- Miracle on 34th Street
- Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas
- Frosty the Snowman
- A Christmas Story
- National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
- Christmas With the Cranks
- Christmas Shoes
- Santa Claus
Much to do, so I should say Happy Thanksgiving everyone - have a safe and happy holiday.
