The Dog Days of Fall

Hi Friends!!  How was your Thanksgiving weekend?!  Ours was spectacular!  In the morning of Thanksgiving we did some volunteer work and visited a nursing home to sing carols and deliver some sweet treats.  Phil and I agreed that it was the best part of Thanksgiving, but I think we say that every year.  After our visiting, we came home and I cooked like crazy, and then passed out on the couch watching Elf with the Mr.

The Friday after Thanksgiving in our house is typically spent getting our tree and transforming our house into a holiday wonderful land (Here is last year).  We are moving right before Christmas this year, so I don't see the point in putting up a tree to take it down in two weeks. Why make things harder than they need to be; ya know what I mean?  So this year we will be celebrating Christ's birth without all the extra stuff.  This year instead of decorating, the Friday after Thanksgiving was my first experience with Black Friday.  The Mr likes to catch sales, and in the past I have compromised and gone out after noon, but this year there were a few things that we needed to get for our upcoming move so I ventured out.  Still, I compromised and wouldn't leave the house until after 10am.  Slowly but surely the Mr is getting me out earlier and earlier lol.  Maybe next year I will be out & shopping by 8am (GASP!).  I think most people were done with their shopping by the time we got out because it was very quiet and peaceful.Thanksgiving Collage 1Thanksgiving Collage 3
The rest of the weekend was spent watching football and celebrating with our Houston family.  It was so relaxing and I hope that was how your weekend went.

In case you missed it, Tomlin debuted her first blog post a couple weeks ago at Creatively Classic.  Thank you Lindsey for letting her steal some of your blog space    If you have not yet met Lindsey, you've really got to get over to her blog and meet her; she is awesome!

In case you missed Tomlin's post, here she is again.  Hope y'all enjoy Miss Tomlin!

Hi!    DSC_0921-2DSC_0556-3
My mom talks about us all the time here (and seriously, could you blame her?!), but we wanted to share a little with y'all today.
Today we wanted to tell you about the Dog Days of Fall.  Everyone says things like the “dog days of summer” and “it's a dogs life”....but seriously folks, the dog life is best in the fall,  and here is why:

Doesn’t that sound like so much doggy fun?  We love this season!

Since our mom can't get enough of us, maybe she will let us share more of our dog tails tales with you on her blog.  Make sure you put in a good word for us.Collage 3

Hope you all have a great Monday!  Just remember, not too much longer and you’'ll be on Christmas break!!!!
