Happy Thanksgiving!

We had lots of fun on Thanksgiving this year. My entire family was in attendance (which can be a challenge sometimes). We had dinner, the men played some poker, us girls played some hangman (LOL), and the kiddles played a few video games. We stuffed ourselves silly and had a great time doing it. I'm sure I'll be sorry for that comment come weigh-in day, but it is what it is. Here are some pics of the fam:

The "adults":

Yes, I did take this picture of myself. In my own defense, I had none of me on my own camera. Kim has the ones of me and Lacy cooking. So, I wanted to include myself. I hate this picture, so it cancels out the cheesiness of taking my own pic lol.

Fun Tag

So, I saw this tag on someone else's blog. And, although they didn't tag me, I thought it looked like fun. What you are supposed to do is find the sixth picture in the sixth folder in My Pictures (or whatever location you save your pics at on your computer). I'm glad it wasn't an embarrasing pic! But, since I didn't have to play, I guess you wouldn't know if it was lol. Here is mine:

Christmas Mood

I can't help it. I am so in the mood for Christmas. It really has nothing to do with presents or anything like that. I just like the mood and the decorations and the music. I like to just walk around the mall and look at the decorations and listen to the music playing. I've been playing Christmas music in my car over the last couple of days, and it just makes me happy. My husband got in the car last night to go to dinner, and I had John Denver's Rocky Mountain Christmas playing. He was like, "OMG, seriously?". LOL. I can't wait to put my tree up and all my decorations. He won't let me until at least this weekend. I always have them up before Thanksgiving though.
I also like how there are many opportunities at this time of year to give to those less fortunate even if you don't have a lot. There are lots of drives for food and gently used clothing or toys. It warms my heart to be able to give what I can and know someone can benefit. I know we can do these things all year, but at this time of year it is really important. It's really cold outside, and the need is more pressing. I encourage everyone to do their part this season to help a less fortunate family have a merrier Christmas.

Birthday Girl

This is my niece Jordyn. She will be 4 yrs old on Monday. I can't believe how fast she has grown up. Look at those big innocent blue eyes. She could melt a heart in less than 30 seconds flat lol. We had her birthday party on Saturday and she got all sorts of great stuff. She had a few friends over, and lots of cousins. We decorated cupcakes and sang the birthday song. She is such fun and has such a charismatic little personality. I hope she never changes.

Birthday Girl in curlers waiting to get ready. She is showing me how old she will be. It was funny because if you asked her how old she is, she would hold up three. You had to say, "How old will you be on your birthday Monday?". Too Cute!

This is the outfit she picked out one her very own for her birthday. I got her the headband. Couldn't resist. It matched perfect and was only $1.

Jordyn and her favorite auntie (Oh yes, I am her favorite lol)

First Official Snow of the Season

This is what we woke up to this morning. Ya--I hate snow. I usually like the first snow of the season, but this year it happened way early in the morning and I couldn't curl up on the couch with a blanket and hot cocoa. I have this thing called a job that I have to go to every stinking morning lol. It actually snowed in September once this season, but it didn't stick in my town, so therefore it doesn't count.
I hate it.

Pheasant Hunt

Wow, aren't I just a bloggin' away lately? These are some pictures I managed to con some men of mine into taking this morning before they left to go pheasant hunting. The only reason they'd do it is because they want pictures of Angel lol. You should have seen her this morning. They've been teasing her all week about going to get birds. Then this morning when they got up and were getting orange on, she knew it was time. When Shane got her bell down, she went totally nutso. She's an awesome bird dog.
