Trimming The Tree!

We usually have a tradition to trim the tree the day after Thanksgiving but this year we couldn't wait that long. thanksgiving night we put on some Christmas music, pulled out the tree and got busy!

I just love this time of year. The warmth of the lights and smells. The family get togethers and the cooking! Christmas is my favorite Holiday.

Spreading the branches.

Half of the lights worked. Thank goodness Jer got them all working!

All finished with my cowboys and cowgirl.


Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

We had Thanksgiving just us this year. It was a very relaxed day but we all agreed, too quiet.

I am so grateful for my family. For the job Jeremiah has and enjoys. I am Thankful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ that I am able to share it with my children and watch their spirits grow. I feel lucky to have the opportunity to teach my children at home and really be there with them at this time in their lives. It has really been such a great experience to tutor them and see their individual personalities blossom. I am grateful for all of you great friends and family. I hope your Holidays are wonderful this year!
