Thankful and Sufficiently Stuffed!

Hi all!

Just a quick note today as I am trying to spend as much quality time with my family while they are available! It is hard to believe this was our last Thanksgiving before my sweet hubby and I become empty nesters next fall when our youngest goes off to college.  However, I am quite confident she'll make her way home for turkey dinner next year (she loves to cook and loves homemade food).

We had a busy week leading up to Thanksgiving.  Our youngest had the entire week off, which was so nice.  Things were going quite smoothly until my laptop got hijacked on Tuesday with the worst virus we have yet to come across!  My poor hubby had to spend HOURS (more than 8) trying to get rid of it.  So, beware...there is a new one out there that is a doozy!!  It continuously hid ALL my files.  Even once we got everything restored, I realized some things were missing.  Well, they really weren't, just hidden.  Such a pain.  Just a reminder to BACK UP YOUR COMPUTER FILES REGULARLY!!! Thank goodness I did!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving Day with their loved ones.  My sil cooked for our family and it was so nice to be able to sit and enjoy everything.  Over the years our family as a whole has learned to slow down and simplify the holidays...we want to enjoy and remember them, not rush through them.

Any of you joining the Black Friday madness????  I used to go out years ago, now I prefer to stay home and start my Christmas decorating.  And, after seeing the headlines across the internet about people being shot, robbed and pepper sprayed all in the name of saving a buck...I am REALLY content staying home.

We have a small turkey in the oven (we love leftovers and since we ate at my sil's we didn't have any), and plan to watch some Christmas shows on tv.  And, these little guys will most likely make their holiday debut...



I know it Christmas when they arrive!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!

Enjoy decorating today with your family. We are off to a soccer tournament for the weekend so Christmas will have to wait. My mom collects Anna Lee's too and she has around 300 of them. It's a little crazy!

Yikes! Sorry you got hit with a horrible virus! That is such a pain. I haven't heard of one like you mentioned, but it sounds extremely annoying. Glad you got to spend some quality time with your family though. =)
