For my mom’s 60th birthday, my parents took my whole family to Disney World over the week of Thanksgiving. After we had the most magical time last year, we were so excited to have the opportunity to go back so soon! And this time, with Bammy, PaDaddy, Uncle Ramsey, Aunt Beth, and cousins Sally Kate and William! And we knew that just like last year, we wanted to SURPRISE the kids! *Yes, we wanted to surprise them to see the excitement in[Read more]
We are ready for a trip two years in the making! Even before we planned our first Disney Trip, we were planning Bammy’s Disney Birthday Trip. My mom told me two years ago that she wanted to take the whole family to Disney for her 60th birthday, and here we are, headed to Orlando with a truck full of excited kiddos!! We surprised the kids again- they have been thinking this whole time that we are just headed to Bammy[Read more]
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’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!!
Hello Friends! Happy Thanksgiving Week! We had a wonderful weekend in Blue Ridge with my family, and are looking forward to heading to South Carolina on Tuesday to spend some time with Scott’s family. It’s nice to have this whole week off so that we have time to run back and forth between both families, and then be home to celebrate Thanksgiving Day quietly at home with my sweet little family. What about you? What do your plan entail? Are[Read more]
We have had a wonderful past week of Thanksgiving celebration- with both sides of family and now finally at home, just the five of us. Here are some snapshots of the past few days giving thanks for the blessings in our life: We started out in Tybee Island, Georgia, for a few days spent with my family! My brother, his wife, and my niece, Sally Kate were there too, so the kids were able to get some fun cousin time[Read more]
