Thanksgiving Day

We celebrated our day of Thankfulness with some of our wonderful military family here in Minot. We hosted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and the two families who joined us each brought things to contribute to the meal. It turned out to be a perfect relaxing and enjoyable Thanksgiving. It wasn't super crazy from too many people, but it also wasn't depressing as if we were alone. All the kids had a wonderful time and the adults ate way too much food!

Paula Dean's turkey reciepe....lots and lots of BUTTA!

The kids (minus Jarvis and Rissa!)

Project 52: Week 47: Together

Yes, another week's post about Christmas!
Most likely they probably all will be for the next month :)
Christmas has so much meaning to our family
But the two most important
Have been and always will be
About Celebrating the Birth of Christ
and being together

I got the idea to make a "Christmas Bucket List" from a fabulous website you all know as Pinterest. I am seriously addicted to that thing. Anyways, I found a blog that had a template to make your own (I didn't want a copy and paste list!) So I made this in photoshop to reflect all of the things we love doing for Christmas time. I had it printed at my lab as a stand out print so we can hang it up every year to remind us of all the reasons why we love this time of the year. Most importantly, all the things on this list are things we do a family.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our family and friends.  We are spending the day relaxing and doing lots of cooking for our military family that is coming over tonight to join us in thanks.  
We hope you all have a wonderful day filled with lots of love, food, and joy!

Project 52: Week 46: Traditions

Totally posting this late AGAIN!

Last week was super busy!
We worked on lots of Christmas projects, but the biggest one was putting up our tree.
(Yes, we have a fake one)
This is one of favorite things to do as a family.
We look forward to doing it all year long.
We put on Christmas music
We drink hot cocoa
We wear Christmas shirts
Most importantly
We are together, and it couldn't be more perfect

Project 52: Week: 45: First

There is just something about that first snowfall of the year....

I can't believe it's the middle of November and we have had exactly ONE snowfall!
We had our first dusting of snow this past week...and sadly it's all gone now :(
The girls LOVED it of course though...they couldn't wait to go out and play in it:
making snow angels, climbing on the playground, throwing snowballs....

Project 52: Week: 44: Crazy


Yup...that is Jordy in a nut shell!

Over the weekend I was trying to get some cute elf shots of Jordy and Jarvis together

But this is the crazyness that I had to deal with.

I think this photo also helps kick off Christmas time as the first holiday photo on the blog!

(Fair warning that probably most of the blog posts from now until the end of the year will most likely have something to do with Christmas)
