we picked up a halloween costume for the bean a couple of days ago and it hit me that halloween is less than two weeks away.
less than two weeks??
in years past, i've come to realize that as soon as my birthday rolls around, the year's over. because halloween is next, and then thanksgiving sneaks up on us, and before you know it, it's time for holiday shopping and cheer. but we've had so much going on in the last couple of months (ya think?) that i simply didn't even consider that my birthday has come and gone. sheesh.
seems like just yesterday when i was in the midst of holiday cookie extravaganza! and now it's almost time to start looking for those recipe books again. but before that begins, i've got a different project: invitations for thanksgiving.
because i'm such an invitation/card whore, i always send out paper invitations for stuff. i think the last time i used evite was for a backyard BBQ before i started my little business. i still think evite is perfectly acceptable for casual stuff like that, but for any other kind of gathering, you're getting a real paper invitation in the mail. snail mail!
we've decided to do thanksgiving here at our house this year - the family room is large enough to accommodate everyone, and the giant new dining table and TWO couches will actually provide enough seating. in our last house, we always had to bust out plastic tables and chairs so that folks didn't have to sit on the floor.
oooh, i think i'll make turkey cupcakes again!
