My mother in law gave us her north pole village, this is only a fraction of them. Incredibly beautiful and so thankful to have them in our home. She also gave us the nativity scene that Matt remembers his mom making in the early 80’s. Priceless family heirlooms that we will forever cherish.
Had four generations in our home tonight for dinner. Doesn’t get much better than that. Thankful for the precious memories our family is able to build.
A day filled with 19 people, family, friends, children, grandchildren, four soldiers that became friends, thankfulness, two turkeys, countless sides, a multitude of pies, nerf wars, a broken trampoline, scooter races, Turkey hands, and lots of laughter. It was a perfect day!
Also, when you over hear one of the soldier say “this is the weirdest Thanksgiving ever!” you somehow know they had fun too and will likely never forget your family either.
Bitty and I started a tea set collection earlier this year while I started planning her Alice in Wonderland birthday party. We have since added a Wizard of Oz set to her collection. I also bought a miniature Wizard of Oz set to give to her for either Christmas or her 6th birthday. Some day they will all belong to her. It all began with her love for my miniature blue willow tea set that once belonged to my Maw-Maw….
Wrapped up another fun filled week of VBS with our three sweet girls and their four cousins! It was an amazing week and I loved getting to have so much time with my nieces and nephew! This was Aub’s first year to volunteer for VBS since she’s going into seventh grade this year and she really enjoyed it.
