Friends Don't Let Friends ...

Work is ... a bit ...
We'll go with busy these days.
And the weather is a bit ridiculous,

So, a nor'easter found me hunkering down with Christine for a series of sleepovers.
Along with grown-up tomato soup and grilled cheese, (lobster bisque and serious grilled fromage),
Which turned into a late-ish night purging collections of Christmas decorations, a tree-trimming, and repeat of our Christmas Tree skirt wearing from last year.

Things have been a bit silly from time to time this year, and luckily for me, Christine's been willing to go for it.
From being the Celery Queen 2014, harvesting the last of the Office Garden,
To creating new office Turkey Week traditions,
Thanks for the laughter and the funny e-mails and graphics, sweetie.

Meanwhile out in Idaho, still waiting ....

As the month of November comes to a close, the family is waiting to hear news of the newest impending arrival.

None more so than Christina, as you can see...

 Soon Nathan will no longer be the baby, so he's snuggling up a lot to Momma.
 Nothing seems to dim that smile for long though.

 The kids are adorable, so I can't wait to see how they react to a new baby sister.

Thanks to Grumpa for pulling these off places and forwarding them on to me. Thanks to their parents for letting me use them.

Toast to Traditions!

Here's hoping your "Black Friday" was most frugal!. 
I spent 0.00 x 100% again this year.

Now, as for Small Business Saturday tomorrow, 
I will take this pledge again, but in a new location.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Day!
 From a very stormy East Coast ... 
 (boy am I glad I decided NOT to travel this year)
No matter if your traditions include
copious amounts of Chinese food leftovers,
turkey sandwiches,
or a cornucopia of movie snacks,
may your buffet be filled with memories of home and times gone by,
and your holiday be filled with the pie of your dreams.

Be grateful,
Be hale,
Be hearty.

But above all.

Be grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving!
