Hello December

November was a very busy month and it’s hard to believe it’s over. Our Thanksgiving was wonderful. It was nice having a relaxing week. My family from Houston came up for Thanksgiving and it was so nice to visit with them. I did a little Black Friday shopping online. I love that stores allow people to shop online and get just as good of deals as the people who go to the stores.

Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to lately….

Rayleigh had her tonsils and adenoids removed today. She has done so well. We’re praying she continues to do well. Her doctor said to not let her be too active for about a week, so she will not be going to school next week. Looks like we’re going to get to spend a lot of one-on-one time together while everyone else is at school.

I had plans of getting lots of pictures at Thanksgiving, and well, that just didn’t happen. Just take my word, the food was great, the crowd was large, fun was had by all, and we have SO much to be thankful for every day of our lives.

We enjoyed lots of time with family.

Our house is decorated for Christmas and last night our elves, Buddy and Ruby, showed back up!

After a week at home, the kids were ready to go back to school and see their teachers and friends.

Here’s a few extra pictures that are too cute not to share.

Be blessed,

Thanksgiving Week

Hey y’all! It’s Thanksgiving week! I seriously can’t believe Thanksgiving is just the day after tomorrow. We have enjoyed being off from school and having so many of our family members home (most of our family works in the school setting). The kids have enjoyed getting out of the house and visiting with everyone. Tomorrow night everyone will come over here for a Mexican feast and games. We always have the best time when the whole family is together.

Last Thursday was Wold Prematurity Day so of course I had to show off my 29 weekers (and big brother too).


Last Friday, the Cardinals won the second round of the football playoffs and are Area Champs! So proud of our guys, they all played a great game! On to round 3!

So something big happened this weekend at our house; the boys are officially room mates. We bought a full size bed for them to share and they now sleep together. Brant doesn’t like going to sleep but once he is asleep they do fine. I’ll post pictures of the room makeover once I have everything just the way I want it.


Saturday was our first Thanksgiving meal with Steven’s family. It was nice to visit and let everyone see the kids.

I took Brant, Gracie, Rayleigh, and Mia to the ENT doctor yesterday. All four of them have tubes in their ears and it was time to have the tubes checked out and make sure they were still working properly. Thankfully everyone’s ears looked good but Rayleigh’s tonsils are really large, so large that the ENT doc said we needed to get them out so next Thursday she will have surgery to have her tonsils and adenoids removed so please keep her in your prayers.

Here’s a few random, yet funny pictures to put a smile on your face.

Tomorrow I plan to take you on a home tour of our Thanksgiving decorations. I plan to put our Christmas tree up this weekend….that should be interesting.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Be blessed,
