It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Yep, the holiday season is fast approaching! Stores are filled with Christmas displays and television is loaded with those cheesy holiday commercials. Even though it's super hectic, I can't help but LOVE the November and December months. They're just so much fun!

Anyway, today was the first day of the Fall Food Drive. We collected approximately 350 cans today; not bad for the first day. Hopefully, we'll get more cans tomorrow! Emily has been opening up to me. She was really shy at the beginning, but now we're actually talking and cooperating together. Today we went to the nearby elementary school and collected cans from there. Then we went around the adjacent neighborhoods and asked for donations. Not many people were home, but those that were donated at least 1 can, which was very helpful of them.

With Thanksgiving a little over a week away, school has been pretty relaxed. We didn't have much homework tonight (YAY!) and tomorrow my friend Molly says there might be none! All the teachers seem to be doing in class is fall and Thanksgiving crafts, recipes, and movies. I do like school, but, well...who doesn't like watching movies more than solving a bunch of algebra problems?

I hope all of you are having a great week! Happy Thanksgiving :-)

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you to! (Thanksgiving is also the DAY of Spencer's birthday!) I'm glad your food drive is going good AND that Emily is opening up more. Maybe you guys'll become good friends!
