3 Weeks Until The Big Day Giveaway

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Troy, the boys and I had dinner at my sister's house with her boyfriend and 3 children, my Mother & Father-in-law, my mom, my little sis and her boyfriend. This was my first time meeting my baby sister's boyfriend, so of course we had a lot of laughs at his expense...that's just our way of initiating him. Last year it was my middle sister's boyfriend's turn. Man, I have jokes for days! LOL! Needless to say, we laughed so hard that my stomach and cheeks were hurting by the end of the night...and my belly was full of delicious food!

I made my famous macaroni and cheese, collard greens, and spinach dip for dinner at my sister's and a more extensive meal for my family so we could have as many leftovers as we wanted. Doesn't my turkey look delish? Funny enough, it's the only photo that I have from Thanksgiving day. I took my camera with me, but I always manage to get so caught up in helping my sister with the dinner preparations that I forget to play paparazzi!

My sister and I were among the crazies who were out searching for good Black Friday sales. I managed to complete 95% of the Christmas shopping for the boys, I just need to pick up some stocking stuffers. I'm so psyched about that.

Soon we'll hear the hooves of 8 (plus Rudolph) tiny reindeer on our rooftops.

Don't worry, I didn't kidnap Santa's tiny flight assistants. LOL! These are just a couple of pictures that I took of a family of 6 "rein" deer that I found hanging out in my backyard one day last month. The watched me closely as I snapped pictures, but once I took one step past their comfort zone, they took off.

Certainly, I can't leave you without sharing a project! I created this for gonescrapbooking/examiner.com using Basic Grey Wassail collection and Petaloo Chantilly flowers and velvet leaves. The photos are of some of the decorations that I put up for Christmas.

Three weeks until Christmas!! Can't wait!! Before I log off, I have a nice little giveaway. I received my box in the mail from Cheery Lynn designs earlier this week(OMG), which means I need to make room. I have a few products from Helmar and their preferred partners to give to one lucky reader. All you have to do is post a comment here before 11:59 PM Monday, December 6 to be eligible. I will randomly select one person to receive some scrap goodies. Easy enough,right?!

Have a scrappy day!!
