My find of the day....

It is so hard to find Thanksgiving decorations since the stores like to go from Halloween right straight to Christmas and overlook Thanksgiving altogether. However, I did spot this pretty Thanksgiving decoration (among the few) at Wal-Mart last week and thought *Wow, that is so pretty* but was it $10 worth of pretty? I fought with myself over it for a minute and decided that as much as I loved it, it was not worth $10 to me. Well guess what? The kids and I were in Wal-Mart today and I went to look for this pretty gem and it was not there. I thought *Well that's what I get for not buying it last week!* But then I thought about it and remembered the new clearance room that they have at the front of the store. So the kids and I made a mad dash up to that room, and there it was - marked down to $5!! So needless to say, I bought it!! I spared the kids any embarrassment of jumping up and down in front of all the other shoppers with my bargain, but boy was I excited! I LOVE Thanksgiving decorations and the season of Thanksgiving. It's like my sister Sharon says (regarding the stores' habits of skipping over Thanksgiving) "Let's be thankful first before we enter the "gimme" season of Christmas!"
