Busy, Busy

I haven't posted in a while because I've been so busy! My parents own a children's boutique and my dad bought the building that it's in, so we're getting ready to open a racing gift and collectables store as well!
I'm still having moments of not feeling the best. This has been a monster virus to recover from. I just have high hopes of feeling good through the holiday season. We have Thanksgiving this Sunday as well as next Thursday. Then, if I can get a baby sitter, I will be shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving! I absolutely love to get up at 5:00 a.m. and hit the stores with a little Christmas music playing and the kids still cozy in bed. Shopping on the day after Thanksgiving is the only thing that willingly gets me out of bed that early. :)
Tonight I have my parent-teacher conference at my daughter's school. I'm really curious to see what she will say about my daughter's reading ability.
I believe it's just 20 days until my oldest turns 6! Where did the last 6 years go? She's planning a sleepover with her cousin who turned 6 in June. We're excited and I'm trying to plan some fun sleepover activities for two. I think we might paint pillowcases with fabric paint! Any great ideas out there? There are a lot online, but mostly for sleepovers with whole groups of girls.

No sleep over activity ideas from me. The fun I remember was just staying up and giggling all night. (Though the pillow decorating sounds fun.)

Hope the conference went well.

I don't think I've ever gone shopping on Black Friday. That many people in one place feels suffocating to me. I couldn't enjoy the shopping being jostled about.

Your oldest is turning 6, but my youngest just turned 6 - so I'm jealous. SIGH. Enjoy them. They grow so quick!
