Happy Thanksgiving?

In our house, we - or at least I - like to celebrate my holidays one at a time. I want to enjoy Valentine's Day all the way up until the 14th of February without starting to see the signs of St. Patrick's Day. Call me a traditionalist. Can you see where this is going?

I've been seeing Christmas decorations in the stores since the last week of August when I was still focused on back to school, forget Halloween, forget Thanksgiving. Being that I live in Chicago, I do understand why people put up their outdoor lights "early" (my opinion, of course), but turning them on is beyond me.

I'm not the only one with this opinion - and I swear I haven't expressed it in front of her at all. Little Miss walked up to me yesterday with a very unhappy look on her face.

Mommy. Why do people have their Christmas lights up already? Don't they know it's not Christmastime yet? I think they forgot to celebrate Thanksgiving!

Yes. That is a pilgrim's bonnet that Little Miss made in school. And yes, she is planning to wear it to my parents' house later today for Thanksgiving dinner.

With that note, a Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family and friends and lots of turkey!

I had the whole pilgrim outfit in the 3rd grade, and I thought I looked so awesome that I wore it to the family Thanksgiving dinner. I just KNEW that I was the best dressed there and that everyone must be admiring me the whole time, lol.

Melisa - Of course you do. I never had any doubts ;)

Mrs4444 - Isn't that a fun hat? I'd never seen one like that before. And a Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Laural - Oh I bet you looked great. I love that it was the whole thing and not just the hat. I bet you got some great looks!

I usually wait until after Thanksgiving to put up the decorations, but this year it's been over a week already...I know,I know...shame on me...

Holly - It's how we do it at our house, but ... really, it's my daughter who's judging everyone right now, not me ;)

Patty - I can do it before December 1, but ... not much before. I do want to savor my seasons one at a time though!
