Don't be a Turkey!!

"Give thanks to the Lord for He is good and His mercy endures forever." What a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend we had!! We went to my parents Thursday and ate and played; John Bret's parents Friday and ate and played; and then to Oxford Saturday to see the Rebels battle for the Golden Egg. They didn't win it, but State better enjoy their "one good season"!! haha. It's good to take time during the holidays and give thanks to God for all our many blessings. As much as I love Christmas, I try to wait until after Thanksgiving to start decorating. Thanksgiving is like that one last deep breath before the rush of the holidays. "Elfie" came out on Thanksgiving night. He will fly to Santa every night and tell him how John Parker and Avery did during the day. They wake up each morning so excited to see where Elfie is hiding. Advent started Sunday at church and it has always been one of my favorite times of year.....waiting on the birth of Jesus. Hoping that you all have lots to be thankful for!!!!!

Halloween Fun!

We had a wonderful Halloween!!! The kids had a great time at their school parties, we had a wonderful 3rd annual Hornback Halloween Bash, and a perfect Halloween night! Mom and Dad (aka Grammy and Papa) and Aunt Kerry came over and then we went on a Trick-or-Treat hayride with John Bret as our chariot driver. The kids loved it and got way too much candy. It was a perfect start to the Holiday season. It's already going by so quickly--with Thanksgiving here in just a couple of weeks. I'm ready for things to slow down a bit so we can enjoy it.
