Thanks and Giving.

Take a quick look at some preparations we had over the last few days to get ready to host "the Kings" at our house for a day full of food on Thanksgiving. I hosted a brunch at 10 am, and then a dinner again at 5 pm. It was a lot of work, but I love to entertain, so it's always lots of fun for me...needless to say, I was slow getting out of bed this morning :) Thanks to all who came to celebrate family and blessings...and for bringing along food for us all to enjoy.
I always get my decorations for Christmas out at the beginning of November, since it is the most fun time of year for me to decorate. Hoping to get a real tree for down in our finished basement this year....maybe today? before the rain moves in? we'll see. :) Hope you had a joyous Thanksgiving. Oh yeah, and check out the chaos below...the guys had a "clay shoot" in the afternoon, right outside Calli, and Campbell's windows...during naptime. Oh well...they had fun anyway.

Give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good;
His love endures forever.
Psalm 107:1

Really sorry we missed Thanksgiving. It looked like so much fun! Matt said he wished he had been shooting with the men. So maybe next year we will join you. I hope so :) Your food looked delicious and I love your decorations. May you find some time for yourself this week. You are such a wonderful mom and woman and it is no wonder that so many people want to help you!!

Missy, I forgot to tell you one other thing before I left tonight. Campbell asked for a bath after we were done reading stories so I gave her a quick one. Does she love them, or what?! So she did go to bed a little bit later than the others, not sure what time (no later than 8:15). Just thought I'd let ya know!
