Happy Holidays!! I am so excited that it is the holiday season because I love to bake, the weather is finally colder and I am in the Holiday spirit. Even though it is November 1 and just last night I was helping you with your Harley Quinn costume. We had so much fun, I don’t know how you got that water proof dark blue lipstick off! But I’m glad you didn’t get any of it on my best bathroom decorative towels (laugh out loud). Anyway, while you’re out I am making some sugar cookies and coquito (Puerto Rican egg nog). The coquito should be good and marinated by tomorrow and I am making a big batch of cookies so that we can eat them with the coquito while watching American Horror Story. This Thanksgiving I want us to go to the Grand Illumination parade. There will be a marching band, rescue dogs walking in the parade, colorful floats and horses. You know how much your mama loves horses. The week after that is Thanksgiving so me and you are going to your Uncle Henry and Aunt Toni’s house for dinner. They’re an older couple and they never have a lot of guests so you can invite a friend if you like.
Did you want to do some Black Friday shopping? Remember the fun we had doing it last year? We got up at two in the morning, went to Waffle House, ate a big breakfast, then we stood in line bundled up in our winter fur coats with thermoses full of cappuccino. I don’t think I ever had that much fun shopping. But I always have fun with my baby at any time of the year. You know what? We should buy each other ugly Christmas sweaters, wear them together with matching leggings and Uggs. That would be so much fun! You know I’m such a cornball so I understand if you don’t want to (laugh out loud). But on a serious note, this Holiday season I want us to focus on giving more so than receiving. As I normally do every year, I will be volunteering at the cold weather shelter every other weekend. I want you to volunteer with me one day. I know you are busy and you may have plans, but just take an hour out of your day for me.
I love you to life,
