This was the first year that I hosted Thanksgiving.  I actually cooked everything and other than a little smoke from the apple pie dripping in the oven, I think I did quite well.  My mom, sister, brother in law and niece came for dinner and were able to stay and go to the christmas tree farm on Friday.  Ella liked the horses, the donut and the pink ballerina ornament that she picked out.

Greg cut down the tree.

Then we took it home and decorated.  This is the earliest that I have ever decorated for Christmas, and the most excited that I have ever been to decorate and to have people come over to celebrate.  We have about a million lights.  See...

It has been a really great year.  I am so thankful for my wonderful, hardworking husband, my family, friends, and my many animals.  Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. I had a great time at your home for Thanksgivng, and you cooked a wonderful dinner! I was totally impressed! :-) And it was fun going to Piper Mountain with you and Greg to get your tree, ride in the wagon behind Paula's horses, and just walk around and enjoy the view. And your lights are all so sparkly and magical looking! Just beautiful!

  2. Grandma enjoyed looking at your blog with me yesterday. She liked all the beautiful Christmas lights and I showed her your climbing rope on facebook. She kept saying, "In the living room?!" :-) Love and Miss you!
