Holidays are Sneaking Up!

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is one week from today!!! Holy cow! That doesn't seem possible. I am definitely looking forward to Joe's mom's stuffing though. I never used to like stuffing until I had hers, and it is one of my favorite foods now! Yummm, I can almost taste it.

Tonight Brendan has Cub Scouts. Normally he goes to Tae Kwon Do on Tuesdays & Thursdays, but now scouts fall on some of the Thursdays. I am SO exhausted, I really do not want to go, but I'm almost positive he gets his popcorn selling stuff tonight, as well as his first earned award, so we have to.

Kitties still have no names. I want to get them named soon though, I'm tired of calling them just "kitty" and "hey you". Brendan is pushing for us to name them Mario & Luigi. He's into video games now, so he thinks those would be cool names. I'm not exactly thrilled with that, but I could live with it I suppose. Mario is fine, it's Luigi that will take some getting used to. lol We'll see. I do kinda feel like I should let him name them, since the kittens are technically for him & Adam. (although I really am enjoying them and loving them, and secretly feel like they are mine. lol)

This Saturday is our annual Christmas shopping trip. My mom, sister, aunt, cousin, grandma and I get together for one Saturday in November each year to go Christmas shopping. I am not a shopper, I don't like shopping, I don't like crowds, I'd rather do all my Christmas shopping online...BUT, I do enjoy this from the family tradition aspect and enjoy visiting with them all. We've been doing this since I was a kid, so it holds a lot of fun memories. It doesn't seem like it should be time to do Christmas shopping yet, but I guess it is since Christmas is only about 5 weeks away! ACK!
