Our Thanksgiving

Oh, Where do I start.... I have SO much to be thankful for this year. First, my Savior who died on the cross for my sins, so that I can be forgiven! I don't know where I'd be if I didn't know him. I'm so thankful that I KNOW him.

My family is the most important thing I have here on this earth. I thank God every day that he chose ME to have a wonderful God loving husband and three beautiful children. Sometimes I get discouraged with silly things in life, and all I have to do is think about all I have to be thankful for.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and weekend. We spent the evening before Thanksgiving with Charlie's family. I truly am blessed to have wonderful in laws.

My hunky husband and me....

Charlie was so sweet with our niece, McKenzie. She is just a doll baby.

Charlie's sister Michelle and her family....A beautiful family

And, his other sister Melissa and her husband Rob. Anna was their only child there, the other two boys had to go to work. A sweet family.

Little baby doll McKenzie....

Charlie's dad cutting the yummy turkey. The food was to die for. I think I gained 10 pounds just from dinner. I couldn't stop eating!!

Cole and Charlie's mom aka, Nana.....

Here was Charlie Mac at his little Thanksgiving party at his school. Had to show his sweet little shirt!!

I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving too!
I'm going to go take my Sunday nap, before little bit gets up.

Week in review....

It's been kind of crazy around here.... I have been under the weather, so Charlie has been playing Mr. Mom. I think he's about ready to play Mr. Dad again, Heehee!

Anyways, last weekend Cole shot a deer, if you don't like pictures of dead animals... you probably better come back and visit another time. He was soooo excited, and we were excited for him. Men and their deer start early!! :0)

One proud boy....

And Rick my father in law got him one too.....

So stink'n CUTE.....

And last week I went up and helped my mom with pictures of her preschool class. She's making the cutest Christmas gifts for parents. And I snapped this pictures of CM and her. I love the looks on their faces....She's a WONDERFUL Mimi.

The leaves around here have been falling like crazy. Charlie Mac loves the leaves. He's laying in a pile!

LOVE them lashes....

I hope you have a restful weekend, I better go in and check on the rounder!

A little peak of Christmas...

YES, I have started my Christmas decorating... I know don't hate me because I'm about done! HAHA. I Like to start early because then I have so much more time to enjoy all the hard work I have put into it. So, here's just a peak at my mantles.

This is the main living room mantle..

And, this is the hearth room fireplace, this is where we put our real Christmas tree and Santa stops here. I love the feel of this room, very casual and comfy. I ordered these stockings from Pottery Barn and absolutely LOVE them. Excellent quality. If your interested go here. I ordered them on Sunday and got them on Tuesday! Super fast shipping. I had been looking for stocking holders that were heavy, but not so darn expensive. Well, I found these babies at Tuesday morning, for 12.00$. They were bright gold, but a little bit of spray paint was all it took!

I will share more later, so check back. We have a pretty busy Saturday around here. Carson has his end of the season football party and we have lots of leaves to rake.
Enjoy your family and have a great one!

These Boots Are Made For Walking...

Oh my, he's something else!!
I thought these were the cutest pictures, Charlie Mac LOVES shoes any and every pair.
Of course Daddy's are the best. ;)

I've got a busy Monday planed, Running hills today-pushing a jogging stroller! hard work. I have to go to the grocery and I want to start Christmas shopping, online of course.

I hope you have a happy Monday!

I Heart beadboard...

Ok, So I didn't post twice the other day. Shame on me!

Anyways A couple of weeks when my hubby was out of town, I decided to try my hand at this bead board wallpaper that's floating all over blog land. AND let me tell you.... It was so easy and it looks like the real thing, but so much easier and cheaper.

Here is like the only picture I could find of the before. I know my parents and brother look so enthused.

What a HUGE difference it made. It lightened up the room and gave it a cozy and not so formal look. Just what I wanted. I did change out the curtains to a creamy white silk. I ordered them from Overstock. The rug as well was purchases from Overstock.

My antique sideboard, which is my favorite piece in my whole house.

I'm starting a collection of white plates on the wall. I want several more, but just got to find them!

I so recommend the bead board wallpaper. If your looking for an alternative to the real thing.
I have already started decorating for Christmas, I know very early, but I want to be able to enjoy all the hard work I put into it.
Check back, and I will post some of my Christmas decor.

Trick OR Treat...

Trick or treat smell my feet give me something good to eat!!

We had a great Halloween evening here at our house. Complete with the pumpkin carving, yummy hamburgers off the grill and trick or treating in the hood :)

The boys were not cooperating on pictures this year. Carson was a clone trooper and Charlie Mac was a sweet little lion. Cole decided he was just to big to walk around the neighborhood with his monogrammed pumpkin, Sigh :(

We even dressed up Jake as a bumblebee, everyone got quite a kick out of him!

Charlie Mac had a blast going up to the doors, he would want more candy to put in his spider basket, than what they were handing out, so you can imagine how much extra candy we got.

So sweet, I wish he would stay this size forever....

This was earlier in the day, Is this not the cutest pumpkin tee, a garage sale for a whopping 25 cents!

I hope you had a great Halloween too! I will be back maybe even today with another post, gasp! :)
