Thanksgiving, 1978, originally uploaded by Tinker*Tailor.

I woke up this morning, got a bowl of cereal, and planted myself in front of the Macy's parade. How did you spend the first few hours of Turkey Day?

Gingerbread Kit, originally uploaded by Tinker*Tailor.

Christmas will be here before you know it. It's already in the stores. I know it's still early, but I'm starting to get into the Christmas spirit. JoEllen, Terry and I picked up this kit at Target this weekend and assembled it last night. We also bought a mini live tree there and decorated it for the breakfast table. I found some felt ornaments at Dollar General that are just like the ones I admired at the German Christmas Market last year. Terry picked out some cool mini lights that are frosted globes. And I found some great decorated gingerbread ornaments at Starbucks. Having a week off for Thanksgiving has got me in the mood to kick off Christmas traditions, especially the lazy ones like listening to music and vegging out in front of the TV. I've already watched Rudolf and White Christmas. But some of it is going to take a bit more work. I've also bought my Christmas cards and stamps. Now if I can just make myself go ahead and write and address them. Are you a procrastinator when it comes to cards, early, on time, or do you even send them at all?
