it's beginning to look a lot like christmas...

I do realize Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet and that we jumped the gun by a long shot but...it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at our house! It is rare that Bob has a free Saturday so I took full advantage of it and asked him so nicely to help put up some Christmas lights today. Bob went straight Clark Griswold style and put up 3,000 lights in our courtyard! He spent a total of 7 hours on it today. Ella played with Dora in the driveway as we hung lights and then thankfully took a 4 hour nap so I got to help Bob then. Kristen, Jeff, Brycie and the kids came over for the big reveal tonight and it was so fantastic! Bob did such a great job and it just makes me so excited for Christmas time! I will try to hold off on hanging the stockings till after Thanksgiving. Hope this inspires everyone to hang some lights! Happy Holidays from the Booth family.

Bethany: Is your house on fire, Clark?
Clark: No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights.

I admire "Clark Griswald" style myself. My hubby gave up last year while I was in the hospital and had ours done professionally. I loved them, so we are doing that again. I am going to miss being spoiled like I was though. My mom and nephew decorated the tree. Although I LOVE doing that stuff and that time of year, it was extra special to have the rest of my family involved too. It meant so much more to me, and I think I enjoyed it that much more.

I will be in Lubbock the weekend of 21st for the game unless plans change (probably no boys), but I would love to have a cup of coffee or something if you will be around.
