A Thankful Day!

Thanksgiving is by far one of my favorite holidays! I love to eat! Thanksgiving day we went over to my Mom and Dads house, which is right next door, and had lunch. My sisters were there, minus one, and all the kids. We had all the traditional fixings. My sister always makes the dressing and it is just to die for. The food and the family time was amazing. The weather was also amazing so the kids spent most of the day outdoors which made for a very peaceful day! They had a great time playing in the woods, the leaves, and of course the hammock! After lunch Joey, Luke, and Brea headed out to Coleman to the deer lease. Jolea and I stayed behind so we could hit the stores bright and early for the black friday entertainment. Jolea, my Mom, Tabatha, and I headed out at 3:30 in the morning! It was so fun! First stop was Walmart! We were actually some of the first few in the store and ended up getting just about everything we went for. After that we hit the other stores. We were home by 9:00 that morning, took a nap, and headed back out! I will say I made quite a bit of progress! I'm nearly completely finished! Today Jolea and I are hanging out around the house. We plan to have the house decorated for Christmas by the time our hunters get home! Luke will be so excited. We bought a few special things for him yesterday and Jolea and I are going to give his room a little makeover!

The next few months are going to be both exciting and emotional for our family. The anniversary of Colt's passing is a mere couple of weeks away. This time of year holds a lot of emotions and also a lot of special memories. On another note we have some exciting things happening in the next few months that I will share more details on a little further down the road!! Ok! Enjoy the pictures!

This is Brea and her cousin Meghan. Aren't they beautiful!

My Mom will kill me for posting this picture but it cracks me up and also shows my parents crazy personalities. They constantly keep us cracking up!

The kids raked up all the leaves to play in!

And they buried Brea in them. We went outside and all we could see was the leaves moving up and down to her breathing, but here she is popping out when we all started jumping on her!

My handsome boy!

Me and my little ham!
