The 21st is Chris' birthday, and we're going to go see the remake of Red Dawn, which comes out that day.
*I didn't connect that Chris' birthday was the day before Thanksgiving, which means we'll probably put the tree up two days before Thanksgiving instead of the day before!
Then, the next day is, of course, Thanksgiving.
Dec. 3rd is my dad's birthday, so we'll be doing something with him I'm sure, and I plan on making him this cake... I have found that I really like making cakes. I may not be great at it, but it's fun!
Dec. 5th, we're going to get our family Christmas pictures done!! I always love doing that. Chris hates it lol.
The rest of the month, we will be doing other things related to Christmas, such as visiting a local house that lavishly decorates (we go there every year), visiting Santa at the mall, having a Christmas movie marathon, etc. Oh, and Chris' mom wants to take Grace on "The Polar Express." Well, I didn't think Brentley was ready yet, so Chris agreed to watch him, and I'm supposed to go with Grace and Chris' mom. I haven't been around her since the ordeal with the suv, but I'm willing to play nice so Grace can enjoy something like that.
I'm not really sure how our actual Christmas festivities are going to go this year. We typically go to Chris' mom's house on Christmas Eve, have our own Christmas on Christmas morning, see my mom during the afternoon of Christmas, go to my aunt's (on my dad's side) the evening of Christmas, and go to my dad's the day after Christmas.
Well, my aunt just had brain surgery to remove a tumor. Luckily that surgery went exceptionally well. They figured that she would be in IUC for at least 3 days, and they weren't sure how her memory and speech would be effected . She was only in IUC for a day, and she is walking, talking, and her memory is perfectly fine! So thankful for all of that! Even still, I don't think she will be hosting Christmas at her house this year. That may just be too much for her. I'll miss that because we've gone there every year since I was a baby, but I completely understand.
Anyway, I'm just posting because I'm bored. Grace is at gymnastics with Chris and Brentley is napping in my lap, so I figured I'd post something :)
