Buddy arrived today...

I have never seen the 6 year old look so scared/excited in his life! A real elf sent by Santa himself. Where will he land tomorrow? What will he report to Santa? I believe Buddy has just become my new best friend!

The Black Friday Edition

A fun and challenging, I might add, Thanksgiving Day tradition of mine has always been the hunt and possession of a Black Friday newspaper on Thursday morning. Thinking back to last year, when we were visiting back home in KY, I remember my siste-in-law and I going to several stores with no luck in finding one until finally stumbling upon the "last one" in a grocery store cart. This year since my family of six stayed here in Wyoming for Thanksgiving I decided to just have the paper delivered. Less work, same result!

Happy Thanksgiving and be careful out there snatching up all those Black Friday Deals!

I love samples...

I love the mail when it contains refund checks, magazines and samples!! Yesterday I was thrilled to find my K-cup samples from Target that I had totally forgot about signing up for! It was like Christmas in my mailbox! Thank you, Target!

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas....

This weekend has been a bit of a winter wonderland here in Cody. A little snow storm on Saturday dropped enough snow that the boys were still able to enjoy it on Sunday. Snow angels, sledding on some moving boxes and feeding the deer apple peelings from the crock pot apple butter I canned (recipe coming soon over at Ridiculously Delicious) made for a great Sunday morning. After a snow-filled morning we enjoyed some Christmas Oreos and my special hot chocolate. Tonight, A Charlie Brown Christmas. I keep forgetting we haven't even made it to Thanksgiving yet....I might need to increase my Christmas Movie collection!

Wednesday Night Bliss...

On, On, U of K, we are right for the fight today...
No wonder they're not playing Marist, I was looking at the wrong date...WEDNESDAY strikes again!!
Ever have one of those days that starts off with wet hair in 18 degree weather, dealing with drug seekers all day and then come home to a burnt crockpot meal? And those were the highlights of my day. As my friend Pamela said this morning, "Wednesday, you are Monday's vicious little sister." So, in hopes to turning this day around at the last minute I am indulging in three of my favorite things...a good Grisham book, a good beer and a GREAT basketball game! Go Cats!
Shock of my favs.
Picked up a copy of  this, his latest, earlier today...
