A day of love and blessings

Thanksgiving morning started out with a beautiful sunrise.  We began counting our blessings very early in the morning.

Here are two of them...

There was plenty of love...

And plenty of turkey...

And these, wow they looked good! {I didn't make them}

Thanksgiving was full of love and gratitude.  It was full of family and food.  It was full of excitement and most important, it was full of hope.

I got up early Friday morning for some shopping... not the crazy kind where you wake up or never go to sleep and stand in lines longer than Disneyland.  No, I got up and did a little online shopping.

 After a little shopping, it was time for some Christmas decorating.  One of our favorite times of year where we blast the Christmas music, gather all the boxes and dig through the decorations reminiscing over each one.

The Christmas season has officially begun which also means there will be 2 birthdays being celebrated by a couple of little kids in this house very soon.  The excitement of December is quite overwhelming.  So much to do, so much fun to be had and so many memories to make.


  1. ooh i loved the variety of pictures here.
    cake ball turkey's perhaps, so creative & fun, i must remember this for next year.
    also, the lights & your honey on the really tall ladder stringing them up ~ great shot.
    the last 2 years our lion dog (wink, wink)chewed through our lights with nary an adverse effect (to him anyway)...he's 5 hope he's out grown that by now.

  2. good for y'all that y'all have already decorated. ;D

    my mom, sis and i did leave our house at 12:45 last night and didn't get back in until 7:30 this morning. online shopping is sounding better and better....:D
