Weekending-post Thanksgiving

We had the best Thanksgiving this year. I though last year was pretty good since it was our first one with Ellie, but I was mistaken. It was so much more fun this year with Ellie being more interactive and really able to enjoy the meal!!!

I think she liked the mashed potatoes this year!

Ellie was such a little ham and was quite the entertainer for our get together!!  

I'm not much into the Black Friday shopping. I used to work in retail (jewelry) and had to be at work at 4:30 in the morning for the one customer who showed up a half hour after we opened. I think it put a bad taste in my mouth. People are just crazy. However, since I signed up for Ebates and there were some killer deals and cash back options I took advantage from the comfort of my home (actually my Inlaws home) and got a number of people crossed off my list!!  Ebates is the best. Basically you sign up and the shop through their site to the actual store site and get cash back on your purchase. What!???!?  You get paid to shop and it's free!!!
***if you haven't finished your shopping they are having some killer deals for Cyber Monday today!!! please use my referral code linked above to sign up and I can get a bonus!***

On Saturday we went in for Ellie's 18 month photos and she did GREAT. She loved the photographer (he was the best yet) and was full of smiles. Everyone loved her and I cannot wait to get the photos back!  
After her photo shoot we stopped by the mall to check out the Santa line - it was pretty short - so we saw the "Man in Red".  Ellie loved him last year and loved him even more this year!!

I mean how cute?  We seriously have the best Santa. He spends a ton of time with each kiddo and totally looks like the real deal. If you want to get him at his finest then show up on the weekends, that's when Mrs. Claus does his hair and makeup!!

The rest of the weekend we finished getting all of our Christmas decor out and up. 

Ellie loved helping, mainly by checking out the sturdiness of our storage bins. 

And I even got some of our presents wrapped!!!

I still need to make the tags but I'm pretty excited!

How was your weekend?
