Thanksgiving 2018

Another Thanksgiving come and gone, with little photographic evidence to show for it!
We had a delicious dinner at our home.  K smoked the turkey, his annual tradition, and everyone brought an appetizer or side which resulted in quite the feast!
Here is my tablescape.  I cut down a few branches from a nearby tree with some great fall leaves and combined it with a few consumer bunches from the grocery store for the centerpiece.
We set up a long table in the living room to accommodate the 14 adults eating, which promptly collapsed on my cousin's boyfriend as he sat down to eat.  He was such a great sport and laughed it off.  It was a near Turkey-tastrophe!
I made green bean casserole (this is before I topped with crispy onions and baked), pumpkin crisp, and the macaroni and cheese was purchased from Dukes BBQ.
On Friday, EB and I met up with my mom for some black friday shopping and lunch.  
The rest of the weekend was a bummer because I was sick in bed.  I'm so thankful to be feeling better now!
How was your Thanksgiving?

EB's School Feast

These first few weeks of November have certainly flown by.  We have been busy prepping for a full house on Thanksgiving, and gearing up for the flurry of the Christmas season.  I will be trying to stay up to date over here with all of our holiday happenings...so before I forget, here are a couple of pics from EB's school feast!

 It was too cute!
And just for fun, I had a ball making a pretend Santa list this past weekend, trying on anniversary bands that I'd love to (some day) add to my wedding set.  This one was my favorite:
I hope y'all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
See you next week with pics from our celebration.

Friday Highfive

This week has been super gloomy and grey around here, but it's Friday and it looks like the sun may be peaking out.  Here's a highfive!
I pulled my neck out this past weekend and so there was a lot of couch time.  I don't mind so much when I'm cuddled up with my girl:
Voting Mood.  We actually did not have a long wait but it was still not a toddlers idea of a good time.
We had a little adventure out to Toogoodoo Christmas Tree Farm this week for some holiday photos.  The pictures turned out cute but honestly I was not impressed with the U-cut trees at all.  We will probably be getting ours from Hyams.
Speaking of Christmas, this cute little tent is on EB's list:  
Thanksgiving is coming quick, 2 weeks yesterday!
So thankful for this pumpkin.
Have a great weekend!

Halloween 2018

We had such a fun-filled Halloween, I hope yours was safe and happy as well.
EB was so excited for her school parade and party...she went as a ladybug.  I snuck her wings on when she was preoccupied and would you believe she wore them the entire morning!?
 I brought the class chicken nuggets. The 30 county nugget is the perfect party size and you don't have to place an order or anything,,,drive thru for the win!

Welcome to Jurassic Park!
Dinosaur on the loose!  I was SHOCKED at how well EB seemed to "get" trick or treating.  Granted, we only went to a few houses, but after the first she was well aware of the candy concept.  These are the best parenting moments, for sure.
Per usual, I couldn't leave Alfie out of the fun.
Introducing Sherlock Bones.
Trick or Treat? He's on the case.
