post thanksgiving dress

Hope you all are filled up from yesterday and not “killing yourselves” on Black Friday shopping!

I finished up this dress for Sonja (finally!- don’t tell her I meant to finish it for halloween, but didn’t)

Today we got out the boxes to decorate for Christmas!

That’s become a tradition now, to decorate on Black Friday.

We won’t shop today- unless it’s online.

after the big tree went up, Swiffer went under it right away!

We found this little musical nativity scene that someone gave us (I think when Sonja was born, or maybe it was Anja? anyway, Anja was mesmerized by it)

No black friday shopping for us. Too much stress, etc. We stayed home, and I sewed all day long, and watched Christmas movies.

No shopping for me on Black Friday. I do not see the fun in it. I like staying cozy in home and sleeping after a long day of entertaining and dishes :)
