Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! 

We had 2 wonderful meals with family! The weekend before Thanksgiving was a ton of fun! We went to a camp and stayed in a cabin there and spent the weekend with Derek's dad's side of the family. It was so great that we decided to try it every year! Derek and I's turkey gave us a little scare when it wasn't done on time, but thankfully it cooked and was DELISH! In fact, the entire meal was perfect! 

We got back on Sunday evening and crashed! Thankfully we recovered on Monday and I went to work Tuesday and Wednesday. I got to help out down the street, where I worked before. It was tiring (I put in 21 hours in two days!) but I really enjoyed it. The holidays were my favorite times to work! 

We left for Derek's other side of the family on Thursday. When we got there, we ate a big lunch and then relaxed. I also planned out my black friday shopping! 

We all left the house around 6 and headed to Target! Black Friday is one of my favorite days too. :) Anna-Kate and I have shopped together every year since she was born! She is always so good when we go, despite waking up so early! This year she spotted a girly store and wanted to shop there. I'm pretty sure I've got a girly girl on my hands! I warned Derek he better prepare himself (and his wallet) ha! 

We spent the rest of the day Friday with Derek's grandparents and headed home on Saturday. 

Sunday we got down our Christmas decorations and I finished putting those up yesterday! I don't go crazy all out, I just took my time!

I absolutely love Christmas and making memories with Anna-Kate and Thomas! I'm already pinning new traditions to start. Tomorrow we are going to the Christmas tree farm! :) I can't wait to get our tree up, it's December 1st and I already feel behind! 

I'm starting 25 days of Christmas photos, it'll be up on a tab here pretty soon. Feel free to join in too! What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?
