Happy December!

Well first Happy Belated Thanksgiving lol. We had a pretty good Thanksgiving here at the Pelletier house. That early morning we went over to my cousins house with the rest of the family and had a fairly early Thanksgiving lunch. It was good but it isn't comfortable like it used to be, so I am thankful we came home and had our own (ie. 1st Thanksgiving in our new house and 1st Thanksgiving meal we cooked completely) meal for dinner. It was great! My biggest complaint about going to other peoples houses is that we don't have left overs. I love love leftover turkey, so we had plenty.

I didn't dare go out shopping on Black Friday but was able to get some deals on some items for the girls. I got both of their Santa gifts online at really good prices, so that is taken care of. Then we have bought a few more things since then plus yesterday (Cyber Monday) the Disney Store had some awesome stuff on sale 50% off. Then on top of the sale, you could save 10%, 15% or 25% on your order depending on how much you spend, PLUS Free shipping on orders over $89!

WOW did I rack up! I bought over $200 worth of stuff for the girls (some Christmas and some bday stuff) for about $95, that was with the sale prices (everything I got was 50% off) and 25% off my order and free shipping! I was soo excited! They will love the stuff I got!

We managed to get our tree up and decorated on Friday last week as well. I just love Christmas time and decorations. We bought some really nice stockings and a matching tree skirt last yr after Christmas at 75% off, so I am excited to use them this yr. This is our 1st Christmas in our new house as well, so it's special!

Stockings and my cute stocking holders
It was a nice weekend, watched several football games, including the Iron Bowl, Roll Tide! I am not a big Alabama fan, but it was nice to see them stay undefeated! I'll be looking forward to watching the Florida vs Alabama game though!
More posts coming!
