Thanksgiving leftovers!

We were so blessed to have our family fill our home on Thanksgiving! We had the 20 pound turkey spreading delicious smells through the house by 9:00 in the morning, and it just got better from there. The sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy just added to the layers of heavenly smells pouring through the house by the time we were ready to eat. Roxanne, her darling boys and husband and my mom and dad were able to join us. It was an absolutely delightful day spent catching up with each other and watching the kids play!

It has been a wonderful and relaxing weekend as well! Kim and I spent Saturday visiting the two Heartland shops. Kim did a make-n-take that was adorable and had all the shoppers ooohing and aaahing! After that we had a chance to sit down and scrap with Roxanne and Julie for a few hours, so fun!!!

How was your holiday weekend?

Happy Holiday Season Miss Becky and Family!

We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family and friends. It's truly a blessing to be able to catch up with them on these special days.

Did a little crafting, a lot of decorating, and a wee bit of shopping with Christyn my personal fashionista!

Oh and Edgar was the official turkey sampler this year, he took it very seriously;)

It was too short...I was in charge of carrots and that was about it. I managed to keep Houston from buying 100 long sleeve t-shirts and encouraged her to use her M's coupon on some prismacolors with the extra prompting 'remember when Becky blogged about these pencils' to push her over the edge. :)

My holiday weekend was so fabulous. I was so lucky to play and visit with some of my favorite people two days in a row! ;)

It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving. We also had a relaxing dinner at my parent's house. Luckily, my southern belle of a mom always cooks way too much food (just in case someone stops by) so we have lots of yummy leftovers!
