This has got to be my favorite time of the year. I love the sights, sounds and smells of this time of year. I especially love the fact that we get to spend time with family. Tomorrow we are going to my parents house to eat with my grandparents, sister, niece, cousins and aunts and uncles. We usually have way too much food and are miserable because we eat too much. The next day I always go shopping with my mom and my grandmother. We shop all day long...It has kind of become a tradition. This year a friend of mine is going with us and my sister and niece are going too. I have quit taking my girls because they are at that age where they get bored and start wanting to go home, plus there are so many people, it makes me a nervous wreck.

On to something else. Being thankful. I have so much to be thankful for. I have two happy and healthy girls. A wonderful husband, who I cannot imagine my life without. He loves me faults and all. I could not ask for more. I have a great family, both immediate and in-laws. I have a roof over my head and vehicles to drive. I am doing something I love. I am substitute teaching and getting to be home with my girls. I am truely blessed beyond measure. I hope each and everyone one of you who happen to come across my little blog and read this post have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy those who you are blessed to share it with. Don't forget to be THANKFUL!!!

PS. For those of you braving the shoppers on Black Friday, be careful and have a great time!!

Our Girls

Here are some pictures that I took of our girls at the National Forest and a friends house....I am going to give some of these as Christmas presents and use one for a Christmas card. These are just a few of the ones that I took....I am so proud of the way our girls have turned out. They are beautiful on the inside and out and I could not ask for two better girls. Them and their daddy are the absolute loves of my life and I do not know what I would do without them.

Happy Birthday Kristyn!!

Today is my oldest daughters 12th birthday. Twelve years ago I became a mom for the first time and I must say that it is the greatest, most rewarding & fulfilling thing I have ever done. Kristyn and Ryleigh have brought such joy to our lives. Kristyn has grown into a beautiful young lady both inside and out and I am so proud to call her MINE!!

We love you very much and thank God for you everyday!! I hope that all of your hopes and dreams come true and just know that your daddy and I are here for you always!!
