Christmas Time

I love decorating for the holidays. We always try to get our tree on Thanksgiving weekend. This year we planned for Saturday and invited the Swaney family to join us for the decorating. But Fiona was not feeling well and so we stayed home most of the day because she wanted to sleep and we cleaned and decorated. Then she woke up and said she felt better and wanted to go get our tree. So we said OK, and traveled to Home Depot around 4 pm. We shopped around for a bit before coming home to the Swaney's waiting at the door and we all piled in our elevator up to the 3rd floor with tree and all. Then we began to put the lights on the tree and all the fun ornaments. I passed them out and Tom helped the kids put the ornaments on. When it was all done we were very delighted. And put the kids to bed about 11:45!!! Wow- Sunday morning came too quick after that late night. But it was well worth it to us and our girls. We reminded Abby that her prayers had been answered- Jay and Eli were sleeping over! Yippee!


We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. First we went to my mom's house and cooked up a turkey and stuffing. I have not had my mom's stuffing since '97 and wow it was soooo good. Then we headed up to Lompoc to the Graham house for their first thanksgiving, well anything in their remodeled home. They have been out of their house for 4 months while it was being remodeled due to a water leak! Crazy- a family of 10 and one on the way with out their home. We were all so thankful that they could be home for Thanksgiving that we celebrated there. And actually it worked out quiet well since they have 3 industrial ovens now and a huge kitchen! It was a blast. I decorated for the event. Here are some pictures from the day.

Fall is my favorite time of year

Here are a few pictures of some of our fall adventures. I love this time of year and I am always excited to decorate the house and go to the pumpkin patch. Our kids get so excited every time they see a pumpkin!
