A little bit of Christmas Cheer!

Christmas is my favorite time of year! I love it even if my Doctor tried to ruin it with telling me I have to get knee surgery again. Seriously I am the 1% out of the 99% that have to have an ACL reconstruct due to no fault of mine or the doctors. Really now that is not the way to start out your Christmas holiday. Other than that awful news Christmas was spectacular. The kids were all super excited and could not wait for Santa's arrival. I think Sam asked to open presents nearly 30 times Christmas Eve. It is easy to forget your worries and get lost in the magic of the holidays with kids capturing the purest joy of the season. Hope your holidays were Merry and Bright! Wish me luck on my knee surgery in less than two days! The cutest Christmas elf(Easton) and his momma

Happy Turkey Day !

This Thanksgiving was a little smaller than normal we were missing Cindy, Adam, Summmer, Chris, Jenelle, Joe, Russell, Julie, and their kids. It was a great day with yummy food and family. As a tradition before we eat we have to say two things we are grateful for. Grandma Arlie started the tradition years ago and isn't doing well so of course we all started crying when Mary mentioned she was the one who kept the tradition. It is such a special holiday and I have so much to be thankful for. I love Thanksgiving it is the perfect start for the Christmas season. Now on to decorating for Christmas........another post to follow showing my "Buddy the elf" craziness for decorating :)
Isn't this just hilarious! I loved Elly's turkey hat.....gobble gobble
