Home for the Holidays

This cutie was so spoiled over Thanksgiving- I'm not sure he will ever recover!  His Pop-Pop, Aunt, Uncle, and teenage cousins  all in town?  It just doesn't get better.

The festivities started out with taking this girl to the Fantasy of Tree Wednesday afternoon.  Mama decided to come along, and I wisely left my wild little boy at home.  Maybe when he is 3.  Or 10.

 Facepainting, merry-go-round, dancers and gingerbread houses were this cutie's favorite things.

I cooked green beans, broccoli casserole and the roasted root vegetable salad from November's Southern Living for Thanksgiving dinner at my parents' house.  In between cooking, I played with flowers, and my leftover antlers for this pair of arrangements for the table.

Morgan's family got here around lunch on Thursday, then we headed over for dinner about 4.  My children had zero interest in sitting and eating, until it came time for dessert.  I was absolutely shocked!

Ha!  That's about what I expected, so I wasn't too stressed.
 Deeds was a little grumpy about his Peter Pan collar and smocked outfit.  "no no, turkey.  NO TURKEY!".  Welcome to the terrible twos, two months early, I suppose.
Friday night I took advantage of all the helping hands, and slipped out for a get-together of all my best buds from high school.
Nothing like hanging out on a friend's dock (with a solo cup in hand) to make you feel 16 again.

Jazzercise felt very early the next morning.

But it perked me up for a major milestone- DH's first football game!

Such fun.  I am still recovering, as are the kiddos.  Deeds walked around calling his cousins names for about 20 minutes on Sunday afternoon.  It was pretty sad.

Now it's time to ditch the pumpkins and get out the red and green.  I think I need a couple naps first!

  1. I think you've found your second calling in floral arrangement... Open a garden shop! Then deliver to Texas! I'll take a painting or four, as well, please.

    Deeds looks like an actual little BOY in that first football photo -- way too old!


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
