I love today!
Because I hate shopping.
While most people spent their Black Friday at the mall...I spent my Black Friday at a cattle show..
Besides...my idea of shopping is sitting on the couch in my pajamas ordering my favorite things online.
I love Cyber Monday because I actually feel normal for a day by just doing what every one else is doing...completing their Christmas shopping.
Well....not completing...because I am just starting.
We spent most of last week in Louisville, Kentucky at the North American International Livestock Expo.
We were planning to take 5 cows to Louisville, but the night before we left, we made the decision to keep two of the younger calves at home.
We knew it was going to be hard to repeat the success of last year, but we were determined to have fun no matter what. After the near fitter catastrophe of last year, we were concerned that Daniel and Nick getting 5 cows into the ring by themselves would make them lose out on the fun.
And....we all know when daddy ain't happy...nobody is happy.
It was the right decision.
Later this week we will be heading to Louisville, Kentucky for the North American International Livestock Expo.
This week is always bitter sweet for us...
It is the start of show season, which is always exciting...
But, it is also the end of the peace and calm...at least until March.
The month of Thanksgiving has arrived.
Not sure how it got here so fast...but I guess it is because time flies when you are having fun.
November is a full month for us. Not only is it the beginning of holiday season, it is also the beginning of our show season.
Once the holidays arrive, it is easy for us to get caught up in all the hoopla and forget what the holiday is all about.
I love Christmas.
It is my favorite holiday.
The one we spend the most time preparing for...
The one we spend the most money on...
The one we spend the most time focusing on...
It isn't just a day...it is a month long event.
Christmas has been in the stores for a long time and it is easy for us to completely skip over Thanksgiving.
