monday already?

these two photos pretty much sum up our weekend.  i made chili on friday night and it seemed like every day after that was a good chili day.  hello, winter.  michael raked up all the leaves.  our tree even looks like winter.  my family came to springfield and we did some Christmas shopping. ellie was worn out and sunday was full of great naps.  we might have started decorating, too.  ok..we totally did.  is your tree up yet?

i already like this know why?  turkey day!  i'm so exciting for mashed potatoes.....and everything. else.  also? michael only works three days. YES!
