Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!

I want to start out by saying,
I hope y'all will have a spectacular time tomorrow, surrounded around family and friends. Just have a most blessed day. Please be sure to stop, look around and meditate on what this day means most to you and praise the Lord for what you have today.

Princess Rose

As promised, here are a few pictures of Katie's Thanksgiving Day Dinner at school on Monday. She really enjoyed dressing up like an Indian. Of course, she asked questions about Indians like why do they wear those head things? We need to go to the Library and find a fully illustrated book on Indians. Of course, I don't think she's ready to find out what happened to all the Indians in the end. Yikes! I did tell her that she does have Indian in her blood. Yes, believe it or not, I have a little Cherokee running through these Southern-Alabamian veins. I know Doug's got to have some Indian blood in him, dark complexion, but he's not too up-to-date on his geneology. No tellin' what tribe that boy's from! Tribe of "Ag-gra-vatin'".

Isn't this a cute idea? I love it!

As I was downloading my pictures from my cell phone, I came across a few that I took and forgot all about.

We (Doug, Millard, Peggy, Katie, Colton and myself) went on a little road trip to Huntsville in the new party van.

Here we all are!

We stopped by Mellow Mushroom for lunch. Katie loved the astronaut & wanted her picture taken w/him.

On our Trick or Treating rounds, we stopped by Cullman's new Police Department and visited June. She took us around, showing off the kids' costumes, to those who were back from lunch break. It's a very nice facility and I think they'll really like the break rooms, very cozy. Check out Katie's glasses. She put on June's glasses right before I took this picture.

Iron Bowl
Don't forget to watch the Iron Bowl Friday, Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Auburn Tigers at 1 PMCST.

Doug wants to get up early and do the Black Friday shopping thing. I hope to sleep in a little bit before dragging out the Christmas decorations. We hope to have at least the tree up & decorated by ball game time.

When I was a little girl, I loved going to the local downtown shops and staring at the snow villages. I thought they were so pretty and could watch them for hours. Last year, I started my snow village. It's nothing expensive or elaborate, but hopefully enjoyable for our little angels. I'm purchasing one piece at a time. Last year, I purchased a skating rink (automated) from Walmart for $15. I thought that was so cheap and I think it's the cutest thing. Katie loved watching it. This year, I got the church with stained glass windows that lights up. I also purchased a few small pieces like the carolers, The Manger Scene, and trees. I will take pictures for you when I get it all fixed up.

Katie has a little tree that sits on her chest of drawers. It's filled with small ornaments like Disney Princesses, snowmen, santas, angels, snowflakes and of course nutcracker. I was able to get Colton's tree for his room (blue), but I wasn't in too big of a hurry when it came to buying ornaments. I don't know exactly what to put on it. Should I stick with the traditional Christmas figures like Katie's? Should I go babifed, little boy things or sports? I have yet to get to Hobby Lobby and look at their tiny ornaments. I'm sure they will have their 50% off Christmas ornaments again sometime next month.

Alise's class did white t-shirts with the same colored handprint. She likes to sleep in hers and thought it was so neat to see Katie dressed up like an indian.

Don't you feel like a chauffer driving Peg and Millard around in that bus? Ha!

I think you should go in a sports theme for Baby C's tree! Too cute!

Hope ya'll had a great Thanksgiving. We did something a little different this year. More on my blog later!

Miss ya'll!!
