We had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Enjoyed having all four of us under one roof again.
It sure is nice having my son home from college - even for short visits.

For the first time in 26 years, my mom, sister and aunts did not get to "Black Friday" shop.
Instead we attended a funeral for a very dear family friend.

Saturday Savannah was in a dear friend's Quinceanera.
It was a beautiful event.
I think there is more work to planning one of these than a wedding.
A Quinceanera is a special event when a girl turns 15.
Seriously, Savannah had to practice for 6 months.

Just threw out the last white pumpkin and packed away the turkey's!
Ready to decorate for Christmas.
Not going all out this year.
Keeping it real and simple.
Looking forward to less stress, more family and focusing on
the reason for THE season.

Merry Christmas Season my Blogger Friends.

Giving Thanks

I've come to realize I'm not a very good blogger
I love reading others
I just do not seem to have the time to post
I'm not a good writer like some of my favorite bloggers that I follow
But I can tell you.......I'm a good pinner
I am 100% addicted to Pinterest
I can pin with the best of them
Here's what my week will consist of:
 I have already made these 3 times - they are so good.  Will be making them again Thanksgiving morning.
 I'm totally going to use my left over little white pumpkins from Halloween and zip out some little letters from my Cricket and make some thanks! 
 Love this idea and it will go with my next idea. 
 I'm going to use paper instead and start by writing things I am thankful for.  My family and guests will also have a marker and they can join in writing what they are thankful for.
 Will definitely have one or two of these this week. 
 This is what my cup will look for while I'm black Friday shopping. 

And these are probably two of my favorite pins on Pinterest.  
Thanking God for all our blessings. 
Happy Thanksgiving Blogger Friends.
And of course, all my photos are from Pinterest! 

Catching Up.

I'm a little behind in the blog world.
I do take a few minutes each day to read my favorites,
Just haven't had much time to post.
Savannah had a wonderful homecoming.
We enjoyed an awesome family weekend in Tallahassee.
Seminole Football.
A little pumpkin carving.
Fall is finally in the air (well some days)
And life is good.
(happy to note my favorite boy got a hair cut and lost 20 pounds since moving to Tally)
