And let the baking and holiday shopping begin..

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone. I was remembering the past few holidays and last year we were fortunate to have spent the day with two very nice couples, both expats living here in Split. And the year before that we were in Iowa. Beli was only 7 months old!

we  went shopping on Friday. My Mom and sister woke up in the middle of the night to get the 'best' deals, not me I was snuggled in and woke up to hear my sister telling me I just had to go and see all the sales. I think if my memory serves me right we decided to drive to the big mall in Des Moines, about an hour away.

Do you have any traditions for the day after Thanksgiving?
I just discovered this website and I'm inspired to decorate for Christmas!

This year we are celebrating the holiday on the road. A opportunity came up so we are taking a road trip and driving to Montenegro. Now I have to go and pack. See you back on Monday!

I spent a couple of hours unpacking boxes to decorate our house with Christmas decoration. I might have to move things around later though. I miss those sales in the States!
