My birthday is the day after Thanksgiving this year. Since it's always too crazy with Thanksgiving, we have always celebrated early or occasionally late. So it usually turns into a week or more celebration. This year is no different. We started celebrating with lunch at school last Friday, with the Thanksgiving craziness we got it out of the way early. Then my mom is taking me shopping in the "big" city Saturday. When Farmboy mentioned my present had arrived in the mail, I got a bit excited! He told me before it came that I'd have to wait until the day. Then yesterday when it arrived, he said I could pick when I opened my gift. So of course, I immediately ripped it open!
