Thanksgiving weekend was wonderful! We had all of our children home, had 8 house-guests, and also had almost every member of our extended family on my husband’s side at our home for the big dinner.
We ate, laughed, talked, reminisced, went to the movies, and even took a couple of good walks. It was sad seeing everyone go…it was just so much fun! There is always a little let-down after an event that takes so much planning and energy, but Christmas is just around the corner, and I’m so looking forward to decorating and sewing some things for family and friends.
I have Christmas quilts, pillows, and runners in a couple of different colorways. This morning I pulled out everything “bright.” I also have a pretty good collection of more traditional Christmas decor that I’ll pull together tomorrow.
Christmas quilts, Christmas songs on Pandora…it really is a wonderful time of the year. I’m so thankful for this fall season with such beautiful weather and gentle reminders to think about those things I’m grateful for. I’ve had fun doing gratitude entries in my “One Line a Day” journal this month.
Oh, and I almost forgot…we did a few family pictures…just some casual shots, but I was so excited to get them because it’s been so hard to get everyone together over the past year with everyone’s work and school schedules! Here’s the husband and I…
And here are my four kids…left to right–youngest to oldest. They’re not all happy with this photo, but I love it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
