White Christmas

We had our very first live flocked tree. Sooo fun and so beautiful. Needles didn't fall off and it required no watering. Kids indulged me in my white fantasy.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season. Lots of games, sledding, movies, skiing, horse drawn sleigh rides and so much more. It was the perfect busy fun filled holiday for us and extra fun because we had Grandpa and Grandma from Minnesota visiting.

Feeling Blessed

Just got out of bed after three days of being sick. Just in time to drag myself to the grocery store and start the food prep. Feeling so much better and oh so blessed! Spent the evening happily decorating the table with the kids while dad was still at work. Listened to some Christmas music as we dipped chocolate pretzels and made peppermint suckers. Storry, Rainey and I got most of the food made and will only have to reheat today and cook the turkey. That means today can be more relaxing and less cleaning. Now I have time to reflect on the many blessings. And there are many!
*A wonderful and loving husband..after 20 plus years of being married that is my biggest blessing
*a thirteen year-old that is teaching me patience but I love dearly
* a crazy boy that wants nothing more than to play and laugh
* a sweet and oh so beautiful girl that Loves her family
* the little guy that calls loves sugar and gives plenty of it
* friends and family we truly love and are inspired by
*jobs that we love- after 6 months of unemployment work really is a huge blessing
*healthy life and happy kids
It doesn't get any better than this.
Wishing all of my friends and family a Happy Thanksgiving!
