Turkey Day 2013


We hosted Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year which actually worked out pretty well because everyone else brought the majority of the food, we just did the turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole and lots of dishes.

‘Twas a beautiful day.


I asked Ali if she would take a picture of Jason and me before anyone else arrived. She’s getting pretty good with my iPhone!


Ali with my parents, Grandma and Grandpa:


Ali with Jason’s parents, Nana and Papa:


Mmm… Jason did an awesome job with the turkey and stuffing. It was delicious.



I didn’t get too many pictures of the actual dinner party but suffice it to say, it was a great day. These two little ladies laughed and played and ate too much dessert. Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite days of the year. I have so much to be thankful for. God is good!

Celebrating Everyday Events


The holidays are fun, of course, but isn’t it fun to spontaneously celebrate when something special happens? Like the time we went out for cheese fries in honor of paying off our car. (Didn’t matter where, just had to be cheese fries!)

I got some good news today—a job promotion of sorts; a monthly freelance project—and I need celebratory ideas. Other than going out to eat. Can you help?!

So far I’ve thought of dancing around the house with sparklers … but we don’t have any sparklers and we just did that on New Years Eve. Or chocolate fondue with strawberries and raspberries. Or taking a thermos of hot chocolate on a night time visit to the Parthenon.
