On our Houston news, there will probably be stories of break-in's again tonight. What is wrong with people around this time of year? I just don't get it. The other day, my best friend (who is 5 months pregnant) left her home with her 2 year old son to go to a doctor's appointment, and while she was gone, her front door to her home was kicked in, and thieves stole all kinds of things from them. Oh, and I forgot to mention that my best friend's husband is a Marine and just got back from Afghanistan in June. Do people not realize that when you break into someone's home and take their belongings, you take much more than that? You take their sense of peace and security. To know that my 2 year old god son stood in the living room of his home and cried and said "bad guy" and pointed to the missing television...makes me so sad.
Well, Jonathan and I finally got the Christmas lights up! Apparently either hanging Christmas lights, or Thanksgiving makes me sick, because by last Sunday, I was laid up in bed until yesterday. I had strep throat, the flu...and anything else that could cling on to me. I felt horrible, but I'm starting to feel back to normal now...but I'm sure as soon as I step outside today, my throat will swell up and order me back to bed.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and survived Black Friday. I skipped out on the shopping in the stores and did most of it online. So much easier than fighting the crowds!
Here are some pics of our lights and tree I thought I'd share:
