Let the Count Down Begin // Christmas + Birthdays

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here at the Five Sixteenths household.  This past weekend, after we all got done with the Thanksgiving feasts, we put up the Christmas tree.  We drank some yummy hot cocoa with peppermint schnaps, listened to Christmas music, watched a few Holiday themed episodes of Futurama, & decorated the mess out of the apartment sized tree.  We assembled it with out directions, figuring that we could tell the length of the limbs rather easily.  Katie & Jason bought some bright LED lights (I feel like I need sunglasses to look at it!) & some other tinsel type decor.  We went at it while Zach sat doing hw, sipping on his drink, on the couch.

Yesterday, I took a trip to see if I could catch some left over Black Friday deals & today will be a day of catching some Cyber Monday deals.  I might splurge for myself & pick up some sweet stuff from the Honeybean shop run by miss Kaelah of Little Chief Honey Bee.

Since both mine & Zach's birthdays fall in December (a weird coincidence!) there is some extra shopping going on.  I've already gotten him a birthday gift but today I will probably buy him the Christmas part.  He wants a new head set with a mic & a black Xbox controller.  We'll see what deals Amazon will give me!

There are still a few things left to decorate.

Hope your Thanksgiving was amazing.

Are you ready for the Holidays?
