Weekend rewind. Just late.

Whoa I am a little late to post but better late than never...onto our weekend rewind...
- I put some Christmas decorations up. 29 days!!
- I couldn't find a little tree skirt that I really loved for our main floor tree so I made one.
- Had brunch with Dustin, Whitney and Easton. So thankful for these 3 people.
Easton pretty much had this huge grin on his face or was laughing the whole time!
- I made cupcakes with rolos & mint chocolate chips for the blogger meet up at Leigh's.
- Had fun at said blogger meet up. Met some new ladies (& Keith!) and caught up with some old friends. Thanks again for hosting Leigh.
- I made some hanging balls for the front of the house. I saw some in our neighborhood and decided I could make them cheaper. I did...but I think they are too small for our lights. oh well.
- We took Cruz for a midnight 10 o'clock walk in the ravine to look at all the pretty Christmas lights.
- My Auntie Donna used to give Jeff and I an ornament each year with our name on it and I have had them all in a shoe box since moving out and knew I wanted to do something with them so I made a tree...
I bought a styrofoam cone, wrapped it with garland from the dollar store, wrapped twin on the bottom for the trunk and then glued all my ornaments on! I think it's cute. Tacky cute maybe.
 - These two cuties cuddled. Justin left this morning for Las Vegas and they are going to miss each other.
Love these two.
- We (Jeff, Jolie, Justin, Cruz & I) went to Nana's for a late US Thanksgiving dinner for my most favorite American Jolie and watched the Grey Cup.
 Dinner and dessert was so delicious!! She made a huge spread! And lucky me she sent me home with dinner for tonight!! Thank you again Nana! Love these people.
{Cruz apparently wanted some turkey!}
And that's all I got. Jeff helped out unloading Christmas trees at Ikea this morning. We only had 1 truck come today but it was still a huge job. Thanks again brother!

Easton is getting so grown up! Cutie!

Those cupcakes make me really sad that I missed the blogger get together. Your ornament tree is cute-- not tacky at all because it is sentimental.

That is the best picture ever of Cruz and Justin! Hands down!
