It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We have been busy putting out our Christmas decorations the past 2 days. I am hoping we can finish up all the loose ends today....but it is raining so the outside stuff will have to wait. I will share some pictures this week.

We made this today in my class.....oh it is so yummy and easy


1 cup pumpkin (canned)
2/3 milk
1 package vanilla instant pudding
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 cups Cool Whip
graham crackers (to crumble on top)
Combine pumpkin, milk, vanilla, and instant pudding together in a bowl.
Add the nutmeg, cinnamon, and fold in the Cool Whip.
Sprinkle the crumbled graham crackers on top.

What Part of Thanksgiving Are You?

You Are Mashed Potatoes
Ordinary, comforting, and more than a little predictableYou're the glue that holds everyone together.

What a week!

I have been so sick all week. At first I thought it was a cold....but now I am thinking maybe it was the flu. I did get my flu shot several weeks ago.

Anyway....I am hosting Thanksgiving and have done NOTHING to get ready yet. YIKES!!!!!

So hopefully today I will have some energy to get a move on. The kids and DH will be helping too!!!!

Feeling a bit like my old self

I am happy that the funk seems to be lifting and I feel more like myself this weekend than I have in a really long time.

I have gottens lots of cleaning and organizing done. Even working on my menu for Thanksgiving. I will share with you when I get it finalized.

I won't have much time around the house to get things done this is a busy one again.

Busy Week

Oh my it has been a full week of activities. I am looking forward to the weekend, even though we have quite a bit on the agenda.

My blogging has been kinda pathetic...I just don't have anything I feel is worth writing about.....what do you all do when this happens? Give a new blogger some tips.

I am in a funk and can't seem to shake it.

I know that I have much to be grateful for in my life.

So hopefully it passes soon and I will back.

Do you ever get in a funk? How do you pull yourself out?
