Thanksgiving at my Mom's house...

Thanksgiving at my Mom's house is always amazing. I hope she does it forever, and I never have to try to live up to her wonderful dinner!

I have never taken pictures at Thanksgiving before, but this year I wanted to document it.

I did contribute the carmel apple place card holders, and the yummiest ever sweet potato casserole! (if I do say so myself :)

I have never had a Thanksgiving at my Mom's without this cinnamon apple waldorf salad, it is tradition and so so yummy!

Of course my Mom makes the best stuffing ever :)

I will never understand why everyone doesn't make their own cranberry sauce. Seriously people, the recipe is on the bag, and it takes 3 ingredients and like 10 minuets! It is the easiest part of Thanksgiving dinner, and 1000 times yummier than canned!!!

Our amazing family, but we missed Suzie and Chris :(

My Mom is also the queen of pie making. Every year we spend Wednesday making all sorts of yummy pies. I think I grew up on pie dough alone! :)

I hope everyone else had a fun and delicious Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for!!!

So Greatful...

I am so greatful for my two healthy little boys.

I was just reading the blog of a family I don't even know, whose little boy died last night. I have been crying about it ever sense, I don't know why some people have to have that heartache in their life.

I have a renewed sense of commitment to enjoy every single day I am blessed to spend with my sweet boys!

Raking Leaves...

I have a feeling that there are only a few more beautiful days left of this year's gorgeous fall weather. So the boys and I went out this afternoon to get the leaves raked up!
They were super excited, in their minds it was really a treat to rake up (and jump in) piles of leaves.
Ah fall, I love you, why don't you stay forever ???

Big helpers

I love their cute little rakes, compared to the huge one that I use...

Then of course, jumping in again and again...

I love these sweet boys so much!

These pictures are pure joy to me, nothing better than an afternoon playing in the leaves.

Scrapbooking Panic...

I have been so busy with my business, and I have really neglected scrapbooking. There always seems to be something more important to do...

Anyway, I am in a panic that I am scrapbooking January of this year, and it is almost January again. I don't have the best memory and it is super hard for me to remember the reason for taking the pictures, and the story behind them.

So, being more than a year behind is just to much for my poor brain to take! :) I have been trying my hardest to get these done, it really wasn't too long ago that I was up to the day, caught up, so this is a really sad situation for me :(

I scrapbook probably 75% paper/ 25% digital. Only one more paper layout and January is complete. Hooray!!!

But, here are a few digital layout that I have been working on for January 2010 :)

Craft night...

I just realized that I never posted about the craft night I did in October. We had lots of fun, it is so nice to have a girls night every once in awhile, although I think next time I won't do as many projects!

I actually thought that I wasn't doing enough, but it was so crazy it would have been nice for us all to work on just 1 or 2 things together and have more time to visit... and eat the yummy treats everyone brought!

I asked everyone to bring something to share and it looked like we were feeding an army! :)

April, working hard on those pumpkins...

Mary taught us how to make some cute flowers...

Me and Katy, the bestest friend ever :)...

My finished wreath...

These signs took FOREVER to get the vinyl on to!

SOOO excited to have a finished product (sorry April :)

Mackenzie's pumpkins...

The Davies girls...
Thanks so much to everyone who came. I had a great time and I hope that you all did to!!!
