Wow how things change yet they remain the same. Last Thanksgiving, Matt and I both had COVID-19. At least we were on the recovery side but still it was not fun. We missed Thanksgiving almost completely. This year we celebrated at my brothers for a big family lunch. Haley and her crew spent the night at our house. Today, we find out that Braxton’s father has COVID so Amanda and Braxton will be spending the next 7 days with us.
I wanted to decorate outside this year. Zach has complained for the past two years that we leave his window dark. We spent a couple hours on Wednesday and finished up yesterday. I saw or heard the idea of using tomato cages for Christmas trees so we now have 4 small trees on our front yard as well. I am planning to get some pictures to post this week.
Lily really enjoys decorating especially trees. So I let her do most of the tree decorating and fluffing. We have 2 large trees along with each kid has a smaller tree in their room.
I really did not do any Black Friday shopping this year. I did order from Bath and Body Works on Thanksgiving and a white shirt for Zach from Amazon today.
