Getting Cards Ordered

What's your weather like?  Our weather has been beautiful, in the 70s and mildly cool at night.  I started thinking about Christmas cards way before Thanksgiving but just never could seem to get my act together.  I guess the weather has me fooled into thinking I have more time before Christmas. 

Finally I have them on order.  I finally got out there and took some real good pictures of Matt and Red, but Rufus was not into letting me do real good pictures with him.  I do have really cute cards on order through Snapfish and will rush through addressing them as soon as I get them. 



Have a blessed day folks.

So Very Blessed and Thankful

Hello everyone.  I've missed blogging.  I've been so busy.  Maybe just maybe the rest of this month will taper off and be the lovely Christmas month I imagine.  I'm imagining spending all down time with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate in my hand, a fire roaring if it's cold enough, and either a nice Christmas movie on or Christmas music.  My shopping is almost all done because I bargain shop all year long.  I've also done a lot of bargain online shopping recently, catching great deals even some I noticed were way better than black Friday ones.  Yay for me because I do not go shopping on that day. 

Stepping back two weeks before Thanksgiving, my step dad had a heart attack.  Bypass surgery followed that and thank God he did great, went home just before Thanksgiving, and is still doing great.  Our God is so good and we should never fail to thank Him always giving him the glory. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I prepared our feast as I do each year when I host it here on Lillie Mae Acres but I took it up to my mom's since my step dad could not get out in the cold.  Brrr, Florida had some low temps for a couple of days there. 

Matt had already ate and left by the time we ended up taking a few pictures so I didn't get a good one of him. 

I do love my sweet Builder Man and am so very thankful for God's blessings on our life.

I think he looks pretty good for all he's been through.  The both of them. 

My sister Sherry and her family.

Of course we all ate like piggies.  

There's Matt sitting my me at the table.  That's my boy and I do thank God for him everyday.  Love that kiddo! 

Matt and his cousin did a little hunting.

That's it folks.  Nothing big and fancy, just a nice thankful day filled with family, love, joy, and new memories. 

And as always, thank you for being faithful readers of my little country blog.
