Happy Thanksgiving!

We are having Thanksgiving at our house, I am really looking forward to it. We are usually all over the place on Thanksgiving and really don't get to relax - but not this year! YEAH! My mom and dad and Tim's dad and Maureena are coming plus we will have Jake, Mod, & Rosis (Tim & Maureena's exchange student who is also from Indonesia). It will be a lot of fun. They know that I don't know how to cook so thankfully I am in charge of mashed potatoes and rolls. :) I have only made mashed potatoes once and Angel had to help me while everyone else laughed and took pictures of ME COOKING. What can I say I am not a cook. I wouldn't say I am a bad cook if I make something but I also ask Tim a lot of questions (he says they are stupid questions) and I have not tried many recipes. I really dislike standing in the kitchen when I get home from work.
I do have to work on Friday but don't have to be there until 12:00. Tim is off until Tuesday as he took Monday off for hunting. Mod goes back to school on Monday. I am sure the extended time off will not be long enough for any of us. :( I want to go shopping on Friday morning around 9 or so because there is 1 thing I am looking for inparticular that I know is on sale that day. Other than that I am done Christmas shopping. I just have wrapping to do which is not my favorite.

our newest addition

We got another dog! It was all Tim's idea (he is such a softy)! LOL His name is Boston and he is a miniature dachshund - looks exactly like Bristol. He is 9 weeks now and weighs 5lbs. They are so cute at this age. Bristol loves to play with him, they get so tired they don't move all night! He is not really housebroken yet but he does pretty well. Tim takes more time with him and I don't have time because I am always doing something - never sitting still. He loves Tim's recliner (that should tell you where they both spend most of their time). Mod thinks he is cute, he is not sure yet about the responsibility of taking him outside after school and so forth, but he is getting used to it. (They do not have pet dogs in Indonesia).
