Hello Friends! I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving break, with lots of good food, tons of good family time, and maybe a pajama day (or two). We were able to spend time with family- we were in Blue Ridge last weekend and in Aiken early last week- and then were able to spend the rest of the week at home, just our little family of five. When I was growing up, we spent most holidays with just our immediate[Read more]
Hello friends! I Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! We spent it at home, our sweet little family, and had a wonderful day. I prepped several dishes Wednesday night, so my cooking on Thursday wasn’t bad at all, but actually relaxing! In fact, I think it was one of my best Thanksgiving dinners that I have prepared. And, as expected, we have plenty of leftovers to last us at least until tomorrow, if not the rest of the weekend! And if[Read more]
We’ve had one dinner already (as shown above- Thanksgiving at Mom & Dad’s house this past weekend), but I’m also getting ready to make Thanksgiving dinner at home for the five of us on Thursday! I don’t want to make a huge dinner with tons of leftovers, but I also want to include all our traditional favorites! So here’s what we’ll be eating and celebrating with on Thanksgiving Day: Turkey- Instead of roasting a full-size bird for our family of five, the past few years,[Read more]
I’m pretty sure that when I post on Fridays, the first line literally every time is, “whew, what a week.” But, we just do not slow down around here, and here again, WHEW, it has been a busy week!!! And we are so thankful for it. So before we get our Thanksgiving Break started (no school ALL next week!!!), I wanted to share some of the highlights from this past week and what we’ve been up to. Last weekend, we celebrated Veteran’s[Read more]
I’ve been trying to capture more videos of the kids, in addition to the billions of pictures I take of them on a daily basis. I took the time out yesterday to get Ben’s perspective on Thanksgiving, and thought it was just too sweet to keep to myself. Lord, please let this little boy stay this sweet forever!!
Hi Friends! I hope you had a super fun and not-so-scary Halloween yesterday! We had our traditional Halloween pizza dinner (I never wanted to eat dinner before going out when I was little, so I make it as easy as possible and something the kids want to eat for our kids!), then started Trick or Treating just a smidge later than years past, since the kids are a bit older (we weren’t done by sun-down like before, ha!). We made[Read more]
Happy Independence Day, friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day, spending time with your friends and family, and celebrating our incredible country and all the liberties it provides. May we always be grateful for those who have fought for our freedoms and given their lives so that we may live in the greatest country in the world. God Bless America, and Happy 4th! “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our[Read more]
Happy Tuesday to you! I hope you have had a wonderful holiday weekend. We had some crazy thunder Sunday morning (I even asked Scott if he thought one strike might have been a bomb!), and a great afternoon shower yesterday, but otherwise it’s been mild and warm and wonderful. We had a wonderful start to our summer if you’d like to know the details! We started out the weekend right with school getting out, and then having our third annual[Read more]
