Happy. Holidays

Good morning everyone! I couldn't sleep with so much on my mind about work and the holidays so I figured I could blog!  I am pretty proud of my holiday decorations this year.  Many people think that I am crazy that I already have out all of my Christmas decorations.  The holidays come sooner and sooner every year and the time flies by faster and faster.  We are already at the week of Thanksgiving!  Crazy! What is even crazier is that it is suppose to be 65 on Thanksgiving day!  This year I have to work the night before Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving night, and Black Friday night.  I was worried about our Thanksgiving meal this year since I will be working and sleeping, but I have it all figured out!  Shout out to the new Hyvee in Springfield MO for their pre-made Thanksgiving meals!  I will be picking up our meal tomorrow that includes Turkey breast, rolls, gravy, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and cherry pie all made up and ready to go!  All I have to do is reheat it!  After all that work we will be heading to Kansas to hang out with Justin's family for a few days and then right back to Springfield and back to 3 more days of work!  I am going to need some serious caffeine in the next several days!  Here are pictures of my two trees this year.  Yes, I said two.  We doubled our square footage with the new finished basement so that means double the trees.  (And I had one from when I lived in an apartment by myself) Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
