Thankful for Thanksgiving

We had such a great time seeing my family for Thanksgiving. I HATE leaving because I feel like we never stay long enough!

We arrived Tuesday afternoon, hung out with my parents, played games and sat around the Christmas tree reading Kisses from Katie and watching football.

On Wednesday, me, my mom and my sister had planned on sewing and crafting all day, but my sister ended up feeling sick, so mom and I just chilled out and worked on Christmas stuff. Joel and dad worked out at the Y while I went to the dentist (yes, I’ve not lived in WV for 7 years, but I LOVE my dentist!!) and then we met up with Kemble and Jeff for dinner at a new Thai restaurant at Pullman’s Square. (Hello! My hometown just got a White House Black Market! What up, Huntington!)

Thursday was National Stay-in-your-PJ’s-and-celebrate-Thanksgiving and we took advantage of the fun day together.

We celebrated Christmas since we will be in Memphis for Christmas. It was really fun.

If you know my amazing Daddy, you might think he is praying here in this photo. But lest you be confused,

Just know that he had the whole family in stitches with his new favorite Glozell video. The best part of this story is that origionally he thought this was a song about “Black Friday”…but it’s just an amazingly hysterical black woman singing Rebecca Black’s song “Friday”… LoveĀ  it!

In case you missed my favorite Glozell video, well then HERE ya go.

And lest you be confused yet again…This is completely normal.

Do you see why I say that I love my family so much?!? They are so fun.

Thanks for the wonderful Thanksgiving/Christmas celebration, Momma and Papa!


I did it :(

I finally took down all the Christmas cards that had been keeping my house warm & bright.

I mean who doesn’t want to look at you beautiful people all year round?

We had you and your precious families covering doorways in our living room, dining room, kitchen…

And on the shutters in the bathroom…which Joel thought was weird, but I thought was fun! :)

Here’s to Valentine’s Day which is right around the corner!

Wonder if I can keep up my “winter wreath” for the V-Day Party I’m putting together…
