O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

We decorated our tree on Friday.

He couldn't wait to start!

 I love this kid! A whole lot!!!

Please ignore me in these pictures. It was Black Friday and I got up at 3:30 in the morning to go shopping

I started taking this picture every year. I should find the others to compare them.

Jackson took one.

Then he made him stand by the tree so he could take my picture!

And finally it is finished!

Our first year together Chris and I bought a S'mores ornament. Every year since ( well except 2007 apparently we forgot that year) we have bought one. Here they are.

This year we couldn't pick just one so we bought 3!

Here are a few of the others that we have collected over the last 8 years! I can not believe that Chris and I have been married for almost 6 years and together for almost 8! Crazy!!

I got this one the year I was pregnant with Jackson from the War Eagle Craft Fair.

Chris got this one for me last year. It is called Hear of Gold.

I got these the first year we had a tree, Chris said our tree looked like a department store tree.

Our family ornament from 2007

Doesn't Santa look great on my red door!

I couldn't wait!!

I couldn't wait any longer!! I had to change my background to a Christmas theme! I wanted to completely skip my fall/Thanksgiving theme and go straight to Christmas but I didn't I waited!! 

On another note: My Black Friday was a success!! I got J's trampoline and my mom got her new TV!! I left here at 4:30 this morning. Picked my mom and youngest sister up and we headed to Cassville to Wal-Mart! We got there and my mom got in her line for her TV, they had 6 of the 50 inch Sanyo's and she was 5th in line! I was 4th in line for the trampolines. We were in and out in under an hour! It was amazing!

Black Friday!

Each year my mom and I usually tear through the ad's and make a list of every where we need to go and what we are getting at the place. It is complete craziness. BUT this year money is what it usually is and my mom has to work so we are going to Wal-Mart for 2 things.....

and this

And that is it! I hope!! 
What fun things did you shop for today???

Random Thought Tuesday on Wednesday

Ok so I know I am a day late but it wouldn't post last night so I gave up!!!

* My boss' sister in law is going to beauty school so all day long I have been singing " Beauty School Drop-Out" from Grease

* My son just finished eating dinner and is now insisting on having popcorn because he is starving!

* I have been shredding some papers at work for the last 2 days, so I know that you can empty 3 shredders in to a large black trash bag twice before the trash bag is full!

* I still haven't given my brother in law an idea of what the hubs wants for Christmas

* You can't take medicine for baby fever!! It doesn't go away!

*Jackson has his Thanksgiving program at school on tomorrow

* In 8 minutes Glee starts!! I am going to watch it and fold clothes!! I know you are jealous!

So that is all I have at this very moment!!

This will be a long one!!

Since I didn't stick with my plan to blog every night this week I am going to cram it all in to one GIGANTIC post.....

Monday: Our system crashed at work so we spent our time reorganizing storage closets, filing papers, and random things like that. Our big project was to clean out the store room which I swear no one had done since at lease 2004! 

Tuesday: We started on the GREAT STORE ROOM CLEAN OF 2009! It was dirt and just plain gross!!! 

Wednesday: HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!!!!! Connie at work always plans something for Veteran's day. Last year she did a slide show with everyone we know that is or was in the armed forces. She put their name what branch they served in and what war or wars and we all said one BIG THANK YOU!! Well I figured this year she would did the same thing. But she didn't she hand me this card and said THANK YOU! 

Is this not the sweetest thing!! She didn't tell us what she was doing so I didn't get a chance to tell her that I have more people to add to my list! The whole thing was very touching!

Thursday: We continued our store room clean out donating tons of food and other things that we found. We took a whole truck load of cardboard to the recycling center! We took 2 truck loads of metal to be recycled. It made me feel really good to know that we were giving back instead of just throwing all that stuff away! 

Friday: I took the day off to hang out with Jackson, Mayson and Madelyn. We had a good day. The kids played really well. They played outside even though it was really windy and a little chilly outside.

I even put a bow in Madelyn's hair! She usually will not let you mess with her hair!

That is about it for my week! I have already started my post for next week! I am going to get in on Not Me Monday over at MckMama. I am going to do a little RTT. I have a couple of fun dips that I am going to share.

Have a great Saturday!
