Countdown to Christmas

We had a super fun and busy Thanksgiving with our families.  All the Crenshaw cousin's were together except Bob's kids, so it was wild and crazy and loud and poor Uncle Mark was tickled to within and inch of his life.  Just what family togetherness is all about.

I have also (of course) continued making my yarn wreaths.  So I've finished Christmas (love that little gold bird)

and my winter wreath.

I think the winter one is my favorite to date (oh, except maybe for my Halloween one) - I think the argyle (which just makes me think of a cozy winter sweater) combined with the snow and the owl is too adorable.  Even Mark and Mike both said they liked it the best.  So it's boy approved.  And that's saying something.

And now we're in the countdown to Christmas - or more aptly called the countdown to Doctor Who.  I partly blame this on the fact that we have no kids yet - I'm sure if we had kids I would think of Christmas first and Doctor Who second.  But as it is, as soon as Thanksgiving is over (or in this case as I'm shoveling turkey in my face) I immediately think "Doctor Who!  Doctor Who!  I can't wait for Doctor Who!"  I asked Mark if he felt this way too, and he gave me a long, weird look and firmly said "No."  So I guess it's just me.  Though now that I think of it, a few months ago Mark was definitely this way about Skyrim.  So I guess it just depends who and what you're talking about.  The point is, I'm excited about this year's Christmas special.  Especially once I heard the name of it:  The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe.

And if you just watched that trailer you're a bit excited too - admit it.
