My People
My People - Cosette, Austin, Oliver, Cody, me & Ryan. Just think, had I not lived, these people wouldn't be on the planet. They are my whole heart!

home sweet home!


Our tree is up and decorated! I also put up Austin's stocking, our Christmas card holder and our Advent Santa. (ok, that may be a little secular but it's a tradition that my kids enjoy!)

Pictures have now been hung... and it seems more like home.

All of my boxes are FINALLY unpacked with the addition of the bookshelf and curio cabinet.










I'm really proud of our little home. It's mine. It's the place God gave me when I had nowhere to go. I don't take it for granted, not for a second!





Ok... this is how my day started... I was thawing a turkey in the fridge and the *juice* dripped out everywhere. I figured better to be safe than sorry and took everything out and bleached it carefully to make sure it was clean. And Austin... because he's just a big goofy kid... had to see if he fit in the fridge.























I got so much accomplished today... when I made my weekend to do list on Wednesday I was being a bit ambitious... but I really have gotten a lot done, more than I would have thought possible... and I actually feel pretty durn good. I'm still smilin'!
I didn't have company today... and that's ok. I was busy and frizzy and focused on getting stuff done. Tonight I want to just chill in my nest. Maybe I'll have another phone call... *wink*.... It's really an icky rainy day here in the mountains. I wouldn't want anyone to have to make that road trip. I felt bad enough that Cody and Marquee had to drive back home on the wet roads.
Florida is winning big! Go Gators! It's been a great football day... and I'm about to watch the Oklahoma vs Ok State game.
I made a huge early dinner for us... turkey, corn casserole, broccoli casserole, broccoli salad, sweet potatoes, beets, cranberry sauce... and there is pumpkin pie for dessert. I can't tell you the last time I cooked so much but here it just feels right. I'm definitely in my domestic element here. I think it's time for that piece of pie now....
Hope you all have a great evening! *hugs*
