O' Christmas Tree, O' Christmas Tree

How lovely are your branches!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, I must say I did, we had 28 folks packed in my little ol' house! It was good food & good times!

In carrying on with our tradition of putting up our tree on Thanksgiving night, we headed out to a local tree lot {sorry, forgot to take pictures} picked out quite a tree, brought it home & decorated it! I have to say {and I know I say this every year} but this year we have the best tree we have ever gotten, I just love the lights, decorations, the smell of it! Oh, I love this time of year!!

Well I wanted to share some pics of our tree with you! I hope you like it!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Caleb & his "snowman" turkey
As a project at school, he had to take Tom turkey & "disguise" him so
he would not get eaten for Thanksgiving, and me being the not-so crafty mom that I
am, figured this would be the easiest for us to do as a family!
I thought it turned out right cute!

Happy Thanksgiving to all! I hope you all enjoy the time spent with family & friends!

I'm Baaaack!

Hello guys! I've been a little busy this past week helping out my in-laws so I've not been able to blog. I've realized this week just how hectic things are when you are working, plus taking care of the house... needless to say the house kinda got a little neglected, since I've been home, I have been able to keep the house clean & pick up every day, well last week I was lucky to be able to run the vaccum! So I am taking today & Tuesday to catch up on my house work, blogging, & anything else that needs to get done.

I am so ready for Christmas!! Not so much the spending of money, but just being able to get together with family, baking, eating, and just I love the smells, the music, all the decorations, it's almost majical! But also what Christmas represents, this time of year, folks hearts are more receptive to hear the gospel. I just love it!!

Well hope you all have a great week!!

It's been a very busy week....

Hey there! Gosh, has it been busy! I've been helping my in-laws this week in scraping wallpaper, wiping down wood walls, & just helping them get things ready to begin painting a house, that my father-n-law is working on. So I've not had time to do much of anything.... reminds me of what it's like to be working again.

I need to catch up on my 30 Days of Thankfulness & other things that have been going on around here, which really isn't a whole lot! Well the kids are home today from school, in observance of Veteran's Day, so today I am taking time to hang out with them, clean up, and make my grocery store run. Then Friday I will be back at helping the in-laws again... so I probably will not be on here again till probably Saturday! I hope you all have a great rest of the week, & I'll catch up with you in a day or two!

Happy Blogging!!

30 Days Of Thankfulness Day 1-3 & Wordless Wednesday

30 Days of Thankfulness

I saw a friend of mine on Facebook doing this & I thought what
neat idea! Ok, so I'm a little behind a few day's but here's my 1st 3..

Nov. 1st - I am thankful for my Savior Jesus Christ, for without him
I would be dead in my sins & trespasses, and on my way to an eternity in Hell.
{I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing
I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day. 2 Timothy 1:3}

Nov. 2nd - With this being election day, I am thankful that we live in a country
where we are free & are able to vote, and also able to worship with out 
fear of persecution.  Though we may not like the outcome, we are
still a lot better off than most countries.

Nov. 3rd- Today I am thankful that God made someone smart enough to
invent the idea of heat! It sure is cold this morning!

Will you please take a picture!

These kids are a mess! These day's every picture I can manage to
snap of Caleb he's making some sort of funny face & not smiling like I think
he needs to be! But it's memories like this that I am going to have to blackmail, treasure
when he's older!
