Thanksgiving and Shopping

Well, Thanksgiving is finally over and now it is time for Christmas! Christmas is my favorite holiday and not just for all of the commercial stuff. It is Jesus' Birthday! What a great time to celebrate. This will be my 2nd Christmas after being Born Again, and I really feel the true meaning of Christmas. What a special time! I am so happy that I get to teach my children the real meaning of Christmas and how we should celebrate it!
We had a great Thanksgiving. We shared it with the Cole side of the family this year. Our nephew, Jeff, was on leave from the Marines. It was so good to see him. It was nice to see the whole family together again. It hasn't been that way for a very long time! My pies also went over very well. It was my first time making apple and pumpkin pie, and everyone loved them! But, most importantly, we were happy to see everyone so healthy and happy there! What a blessing.

Cassidy and her Great Granddad Becksmith Bert:
The kids loved seeing Bert!
Afterward, we went to see our old dog, Chubbs! He is doing great! We were all so happy to see him!

Yesterday, the kids and I put up the Christmas tree. It was so much fun. We listened to Christmas music and had fun!

I got my first Christmas present yesterday. I headed out to Walmart and got a Cricut! I am so thrilled!
Here is a funny picture to leave you all with. We probably see this begging face about 10 times a day! ;)

Great pics!! (The small white print is hard to read. It might be easier if it was darker or larger.)
The pies, especially the apple, looked amazing!!

Oooh, I can read it now! ;)

I love the "begging" face. LOL

What a sweet family. Looks like your holiday was great fun!

I found your cute blog through CWO.
I live near INDY (North Vernon) ...south of you.
It's always fun meeting neighbors out in the blogosphere!

Those are precious photos. I've got a 5-year-old girl & we see a similar face routinely.
