I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving day. We are taking advantage of the long weekend to take care of lots of things around the house. Our plans include getting all the Christmas decorations up, some after-thanksgiving shopping, and garage renovating. Yes, we are going to be scraping, painting, cleaning and, if we have enough time, organizing our garage... More on that little project soon.
