Hello Monday | Let us Give Thanks

Happy Monday Friends! I hope y'all had a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you were able to spend lots of time with family and friends.

I ended up taking an unexcepted blog break last week so I am recapping out Thanksgiving Break today! I hope you will grab our graphic and join us!



Here is a recap of Monday, November 19th-Sunday, November 25th. It's been a crazy week so I needed a reminder of the dates. 😉

Monday- I dropped Ian off at the golf course to play a round of golf with Chris. I went to the grocery store, cleaned up the house, worked on orders, and then went back to get him. That evening my sister came to spend the night with us. We had the best time laughing and catching up! 

Tuesday- We hung around the house. My sister and I enjoyed our coffee while the kids slept in. Then she dyed my hair, we played a game of clue with Ella, and I worked on more orders. Later that evening we went to Thanksgiving Dinner with our grandparents. 


Wednesday, I was up and out of the house bright and early to weigh in at Weight Watchers. I lost 1.2 this week. YAY! the lady wrote down my gain wrong last week. I gained 2.8 while on the cruise. So I have almost lost half of what I gained while we were again. Like I mentioned in my November goals. I just plain to maintain this month! 
I also went to pick up our honey baked ham. Went to the grocery store AGAIN, and Ella and I snuck in a manicure! 

Then I spent the rest of the day in the craft room working on all the orders. THANK YOU! 

Thursday was Thanksgiving. We went to Ben's aunt's house for lunch. But our morning started off nice and slow sipping coffee and watching The Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. My kids slept until 10:30 AM


We got to Kathy's house around 12:45. We had the best time catching up with family. Most of the great grandkids on Grammy's side. 


The guys enjoyed the firepit and cigars...


While these two younger guys enjoyed backyard football. 




The girls "cruised" in the jeep. Not really...they just hung out and talked. 😉 But it does hurt my heart that we will blink and they really will be cruising around in a vehicle. 


I watched while this gang played a few games of spoons. 


We moved the inside party outside to join the guys but not before we snapped a few pictures. 

Chris and Kim 


I tried to get Ben to take a cute picture with me but this is what I got...



Sweet cousins. 


Sweet Miller. He was exhausted. 


Bonfires and Family. Perfect time for being together and giving Thanks. 



On the way home from Kathy's, Ben let me run into Michael's to buy the Christmas tree I wanted for my front porch!! YAY Oh and Ella spent the night at Kathy's with Andrea. 

Friday morning, my guys headed to the golf course and I enjoyed my coffee and quiet time all by myself. But then I kicked it into high gear to clean house and set up for Thanksgiving with my family on Saturday. 
The boys got home around 1:30 and I met Grammy to get Ella around 2:45. We spent the rest of the afternoon/evening watching The Match | Tiger vs. Phil. 


I swear it was the never ending game of golf. But we were all glued to the TV. 


Ian just loved me taking his picture!! 🤣🤣



Trixie was SO READY FOR BED!


She is real lady like! #not


Saturday morning, Ben had to run to the grocery store to grab a few more items to smoke the turkey and look what he came home with! Not so WW friendly. 


But look at his turkey he smoked on the big green egg! It was heavenly


Saturday around noon my family came over to celebrate Thanksgiving and watch the Georgia/Georgia Tech game. 

Ella and my nephew, Cory. 


Ella sure does love Hunter. Can y'all even believe he is going to be ONE in 2 weeks?? I can't! 


We are so THANKFUL for our mama! and even more thankful that she felt well enough to be with us on Saturday. 


The crew left around 4:30. I got everything cleaned up and then this happened...


We got the Christmas tree up Saturday evening. The rest of the evening looked like this...Wine and Deck the Halls. 


I had my snuggle buddy right next to me. 


Sunday morning, my guys hit the golf course again and Ella and I DECKED THE HALLS! 


I switched up the Bar Cart this year and I love it! 


I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving with lots of time spent with loved ones! I have a busy week ahead filling orders but a fun week planned for the blog so make sure you check back every day!
