Gotta LOVE TURKEY! :) Had to work all weekend as well
so I was pretty busy! My oldest boy came to visit Friday with
his GF, it was really nice seeing them! :) 

I hope you all ate til you were stuffed and Shopped til you
dropped! It was funny at work cuz Friday was busy but
Saturday was CRAZY BUSY! I thought people forgot
what day Black Friday was! LOL 

I'm just glad it's all over and now it'll be steady for the
rest of the holiday season! :) Since Thanksgiving is over -
I thought I would share my Holiday cards & Projects with you...
