Its not even Dec. yet.....

but I don't care! We have not had our tree up in 2 years, b/c of selling our house and remodeling this one, and I was ready to put her up! So we spent all afternoon yesterday hanging lights outside and putting up our tree. I love it and the boys seem to be sooooo excited. Oh and the tree totally spins!!! So retro, or something?!? We are totally in the spirit around here and can't wait to celebrate with all our friends and family.

Check out Felix, he made his big debut this morning. Cy is still thinking him over!

Cheers to you and hope you too will remember the true reason for the season!!

Happy Turkey Day!

Hope everyone had a very Happy Turkey Day! We celebrated the day starting on Wednesday. That day I loaded up the boys with Grandma and Tuck and headed to New J-ville. This is where my mom is from, and we all needed to go for a visit. So we took our ham and turkey to my Nanny's house and ate with several of my cousins. We have not gotten to do this many Thanksgivings, so it was a special treat for us all. Then on Wed. night we went to check on Non and Pop. We made the CUTEST turkeys with Nonni and had fun hanging with them.

Then on Thursday we headed to Pep's to eat with most of his crew. My other grandfather made the drive from New Jville, and several of my cousins came as well. This side of my family just keeps growing. This year we added a little girl, she is the first great granddaughter on this side. I am the only granddaughter. Girls seem to be few and far between with this group.

Here are Nate and my Dad's mom and Mom's dad!

All the great grand kiddos!
Clay and Kelly with my Dad's dad!

The food was yummy and the nap later was great! Had to get ready for my shopping day on Friday.

Family Fun

Last night we left Colby with "MoMo and Pep," to hang with the big people in the Lankford family. Cy has only been to a couple of movies at the theater, but we decided he needed to brave this one with us. It was the new Christmas Carol* and it was great. Yes it was pretty scary but not when you sit in your mom's lap, don't wear your 3D glasses and take one looong trip to get drinks. Cy thought it was fine, and we were not up all night worried about ghosts. It was great to hang with just him and the other big cousins. Cy had to pull a 3year old moment in the pic below, but other than that he did great. Check out Pop's reflective glasses!!! Yeah to the start of this wonderful season.

This calls for a celebration!!!!!

Nate experienced a very special moment with "Big Red" this week! I have no words to say...he and Uncle Rich captured it all in these pics.

So here is to another 100,000. Oh I really do live with 3 boys!!!

Bye, bye leaves.....

Yesterday we spent the better part of about 4 hours removing the leaves from our front yard. Oh I want to mention that Nate and Colby were at Home*Depot for 2 of those hours! NO COMMENT!! Anyway we had a blast in the leaves while they were here. The leaves were a source of entertainment for all the friends we had to play and just for Cy and Colby to run, jump and drive through each afternoon. So until next fall, bye bye leaves.... Enjoy the pics!

Really why do you pick your nose sooo much when you are 3?

Say Cheese............

One day last week, Cy decided that he wanted to take some pics. Well they started out a little rough but after a couple he seemed to have a hang of it. It was fun until brotherly love got in the way and they fought over the camera. Oh well!

I'm here, I'm Blessed and I'm Loved!

Thank you to all that have loved on me these last week! I am so blessed to have such incredible people in my life. My family ROCKS! And my friends are so willing to hug, cook, pray and listen!
You never know what your day will hold, but I am learning to remember Who is there to hold me each day!
