Happy Veteran's Day!

I love holidays where you don't have to actually do anything to celebrate.  Of course I am thankful for all that our veteran's have done for our country and remember their services.  But I do love these holidays where you get a day off of work but don't have to go anywhere or do anything.  Today was one of those days!  Besides a trip to the dentist, we pretty much just stayed home and got some much needed things done around the house.

I decided to go ahead and put up our Christmas decorations.  I know it is a little early but we have tons of stuff going on in the next couple of weeks and today was just a good day to get it done!  I decided to wait on my outside decorations for a couple of more weeks so my neighbors don't talk about me ;) This morning Jarrod brought everything down from the attic and I began to go through it all.  I always forget what all I have from year to year.  So we had to rearrange some furniture but we got the tree up in the living room.  Hadley helped me put a tree up in her room as well.  Daddy brought over Mom's snow village from the storage building so I could put it up to with the few pieces I have.  My entertainment center is the perfect little display for the Snow Village so I have really been wanting to put it up.  It might have been a bad idea considering Hadley is having a very hard time keeping her hands off of it but we will see how it goes!  Nanu stopped by to help me with my bows to go on top of my trees so now they all look great!  I still need a few more decorations for my kitchen and bookshelves so I will definitely be searching Pinterest for some good ideas. 


Anyways, tonight I fixed chicken pot pies and probably the best cornbread I have ever made.  Not a single bit of it burnt or stuck to the pan so I was very impressed with myself.  I don't think I have ever made it before without it somehow messing up.  I love being able to have dinner early and the kitchen cleaned up before we have to rush for bathtime and to bed!  I could definitely get used to these off days!
