The weeks are a flying by! What happened this week?


It snowed.

Definitely not a common occurrence here in East Texas!  That was crazy!  I think these were some of the biggest snowflakes I’ve ever seen, much less in Texas.


Thursday was Thanksgiving.

We went to my mother-in-law’s for Thanksgiving and had a great time.  All of my family pretty much already had plans with other family members (their in-laws and such).  After we came home, stuffed full of good food and with a considerable amount of leftovers, we put up the Christmas Tree!  I consider myself a Thanksgiving purist, and to me that means Thanksgiving needs to happen before any Christmas stuff!  I think this is the first year we’ve actually put the tree up on Thanksgiving day and not the day after.



We went to a wedding.

Our good friends Shaun and Nacole got married on Saturday!  It was a beautiful ceremony, performed by my hubby, and we had a great time sharing this special day with these two!  I am so happy for them!

The Ugly Truth

Well… I mentioned to Billy that when our kids are grown they are expected to come to our house on Thanksgiving Day!  I know that seems a little selfish probably, especially if they are married, but I have missed the big holiday get-togethers that used to happened when my great-grandmothers were alive.  Holidays are for family and I completely expect to see mine on holidays!
