This week...

I just love this week every year. Tonight we kick off the week with our Annual Thanksgiving Dinner @'s not your traditional night. They guys gather fun stuff about each other all year and have a good time making fun of each other and make us all laugh. It is a fun night and people get a glimpse into the life as a staff person at FCC in a way they never thought!

Another thing I love is the kids only have 2 days of school this week...which means I get time off also since I sub. By Wednesday my sister and her family will be here and I usually cook dinner on Wed. night so my mom's kitchen stays clean for Thursday! Which we only live 2 doors down from her...yep...nice! (most of the time..LOL...just kidding mom!! We love you!!)

On Thursday we will all go to my moms and stuff our face! My mom makes the best ever stuffing!! I could just have that and be happy!! I really do love Thanksgiving. Why? Because you just get together and have fun, visit and there is no pressure of giving gifts...just eating and being thankful for what God has blessed us with.

Thursday night we always go see a movie as a family. It's a nice way to end our day.

Then on Friday my nieces and I get early and go shopping and then have breakfast at Panera. We have done this for years and I look forward to it so much now! I have the best nieces ever...on both sides of our family. My sister's girls are getting older now and it is fun to watch them shop. They are 21 and 17! WOW!! We aren't serious about it, just enjoy the fun of it.

Friday afternoon we drag out all the Christmas Decorations and begin the process of hanging it all up! I love having the lights and decorations up. It feels so warm in the house.

Sat...well that is bedlam day....OSU vs. OU. So we sit down and enjoy leftovers and some football. GO POKES!!! So that is our week. I just love it. I love my family. I will show you picks of our day!

How about you? What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving? Any traditions you enjoy?



    We leave for Eureka Springs Ar with my kids and my bros kids. and my mom and stepdad and we all go stay in a cabin for the week.Thurs morning Brian makes a big breakfast and then we go to Rogues Manor for dinner. Friday we go to Branson and shop til like midnight. Sat we watch the game and make a big pot of chili ~ GO POKES!! and then on Sunday we take our sweet time heading home! It was weird the first year not having everyone cook but you get over that real fast and now we love it! I think we are on our 5th year. WE love it and are so refreshed when we come home! Our cabin is way out in the woods, has a huge fireplace and a big screened in porch with a hot tub. WE LOVE IT :)

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving my friend! I am thankful for your friendship!!!! Bless you and yours and please know I am praying for Lori and her family

  2. I love this week also! This is my first year ever to not spend Thanksgiving with my immediate family! It's just Eric, Molly, and me this year! We are going over to a family's house from church to celebrate with them. I am a little sad about no family, long story, but it's all good! Have a great week!!
