Our Thanksgiving

Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was wonderful! Ours was!!  Laid back and comfortable, with family around. Doesn't get much better!

 Niece Hope was ready for FOOD!

This year we ordered a turkey from a local farmer, so it was fresh and raised in a way that our family strongly believes in.  And it was HEAVENLY! The very best turkey we have ever had!

We enjoyed our 4 day weekend. I  love those weekends where you think it's Sunday, and then realize it's still Saturday!

I did get all of the Christmas decorations out. I love this time of year. I sat back and laughed as my boys dug through the ornament box. I love those "OHHH!! I REMEMBER THIS!" or "oh YEA..I had forgotten about this one!"

I'm doing a lot of my shopping online this year, and I'm finding it a lot easier on my mental well-being! =) I think I'm actually able to think more about what that person would like, because I'm not overwhelmed or being run over by shopping carts.  I will be making a trip out of town, just because it IS Christmas after all, but hopefully it will just be to get the small things and cool baking goodies.

I love buying gifts, and have a couple this year I just can NOT WAIT to give!!
