Thanksgiving and setting up for the Holidays!

Andy and I had Thanksgiving dinner with my side of the family. It was a lot of fun. We had Cooper and Tessa running around, Coops was only happy when she was doing her own thing, she hates to be held now.

Cooper started out hating Thanksgiving. All she wanted was her momma and no one else.

Then she got distracted with how yummy the mashed potatoes were. Bahah!

yum yum yum!

Then today I did my favorite thing to do around the holidays with my mother! We set up our Christmas tree! Well, I set it up and then she and I decorated it. She also decorated her apartment, while I shot photos of course.

Tomorrow we're going to see TSO (Trans Siberian Orchestra), Andy, my mother and our family friend aka my second mom Sharon! I'm so excited! My mom and I have made it a tradition to go see TSO every year around Thanksgiving and my birthday!

dear Santa get here quickly!
I love Christmas time. My Aunt has already put up her Christmas trees. (She has two)
I can't wait to get the apartment with Andy. I'm going to be decorating as soon as the Christmas mood strikes.

I'm working on overlays. I like this one. I also have one on my flickr. So go ahead and check it out if you'd like.

Hello all!
In my family I have three family members who have been born on November 11th, my cousin, my aunt and my uncle (whom are twins in fact).
I went out to lunch with my cousin, her daughters, my aunts, my mother and my grandmother. We had a birthday lunch.
It was a lot of fun. Tessa and Cooper were the highlights of our outing as usual. Even the wait staff had fun with them, especially when Cooper got up and started walking around the restaurant on her own.

Halloween was canceled.

For real. It was really canceled in the state of Connecticut.
Because of all the damage the snow storm brought.
Yes indeed, I did say (write) snow storm.
We had a severe snow storm pass through CT over the weekend. Andy and I drove through it on our way to Salem MA on Saturday. I managed to snap a few shots. And I do mean few, the lighting was terrible and the snow made everything blurry and get dark. It was a rainy snow too that we got in Salem, it was terribly windy. I almost got blown out into the street at one point, but I didn't Andy and I were holding hands and so he kept me from getting blown out into traffic. I didn't get any photos in Salem, all it was doing was raining and snowing at the same time and you know that the wind was terrible. So because of all that I didn't want to chance taking my camera out and ruining it because of all the water that was being blown around by the wind.

Now for the very first time I am introducing you to Sadie. Andy's cat that we're taking home with us when we get our apartment in the Spring. She's an absolute doll! She's gorgeous! And such a sweet heart...well when she wants to be. She gets a bit cranky when you try to pick her up when she doesn't want to be.
