Friday was a rough night on our street. There was a hit and run accident and unfortunately one of our neighbors died. I was putting Little Miss to bed and Hubby came home with tapas and dessert from one of our favorite restaurants, Barcelona and he asked me if I had looked outside. I said no because I was putting Little Miss to bed and he told go out the front door and look left. Tons of flashing lights and emergency vehicles. Our street was shut down. Hubby was only allowed on when he told them he lived on the street but apparently someone was hit. I used to work in an emergency room and I have seen many accidents where people got hurt by being hit by a car. I knew from the amount of lights that it was bad. Our street is a threw street and people drive too fast. It is scary because there are many small children that live on our street. The news has claimed they found the driver, an 88-year-old woman and that she didn't realize she hit someone. I am not buying it. The facts are not adding up.
I felt like we got a lot done on Saturday, We got some cleaning done. We also had a potential babysitter over to meet the Little Miss, in all her cranky glory. Then we had lunch at a favorite local Mexican Restaurant (because we can't go out to dinner anymore with Little Miss) and we got most of our Thanksgiving meal food shopping done. We were unable to buy frozen vegetables or ice cream for the pie because we have no room in our freezer. Let's just say our freezer is full of the Little Miss's food supply and there is no room. Hubby did buy a chest freezer for our basement. I am thrilled because I had been hinting for a month that we needed one. It took Thanksgiving prep to realize it.
Saturday night I worked on my blanket.
Sunday morning was filled with Mass, breakfast, and a trip to the Christmas Tree Shop for some last minute kitchen needs and we ended up buying a snow man for our lawn. I am usually a "no-decorations-till-after-Thanksgiving" purist but I let my guard down. Hubby wanted to put the snowman up and I decided that since this is his busy time of year for work and that it was warm, he could put Mr. Snowman together.

I like him. He looks so happy.
