My thoughtful aunt in California sent us all special gifts to open "after the dishes were done." She sent me this cute Christmas apron. I pretty much wore it for the rest of the afternoon, even though we were done cooking! It was packaged in these really fun Russian-nesting-doll style houses (a big one with a smaller one inside a smaller one inside a smaller one.) I thought those were so fun! So I displayed the on the shelves in my living room.
A few days ago, I asked my mom if she still had an extra artificial Christmas tree, wondering if I could use it for the season. Turns out she got rid of it. But today, my family surprised me with this fun little tree and ornaments and a tree skirt! I was so excited! See, when you are a single adult like me, you don't spend lots of holiday time at home, so there's no tree to enjoy. I'm pretty sentimental so I miss that. But now I have a tree in my apartment! I love that!
We watched the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade this morning. I just remember watching that when I was little, but since my parents done have tv anymore, my younger siblings hadn't really ever seen it. I hope they enjoyed that.
