ANNND, so last night I arrived at my mom's house, walked the dog, had some dinner, and froze my toes off because it went to 20* below (and ok, those of you who live in cold places can laugh at me, but i have thin blood!! and am not ashamed to admit it!)

Today we ran every errand under the sun so that way we can spend the next three days crafting, cooking, cookie-ing, and having an LOTR marathon and the whole process tired us both out. Not so much that we couldn't hop in the car after dinner to drive around town looking at people's christmas lights (pics forthcoming), though. It should be a fun time for all!
