The other day I got to go see some really excited new parents and a beautiful new baby girl. Some friends of Wes's (and ours of course) that live on a farm near us just had their first baby. She's precious and they are over the moon!
I took dinner and a couple of outfits for the baby over too them their second night home from the hospital. (Good excuse to get to hold the baby huh?) Anyway, I started making a card for the gift and decided on a little banner instead.
Meet Lyla... she's perfect!
So the cold weather has arrived.... winter is here. Not my favorite time of the year, but I'm always trying to see the beauty in it when I can. Its has it's moments. I do love the Holidays though.
We really do have so much to be thankful for. Thankful our kids are happy and healthy.
And that we have gotten to spend time with all of them this month :)
We were all together with the large extended family on Thanksgiving, and that was great.
( I'm glad the pumpkin pie if finally gone so it quits tempting me!!)
It was a great day with the family. I realized at the end of the day that I had hardly taken any photos at all. The incident below may have distracted me a bit from photo taking. grrrrr. Thank goodness we had all already eaten, and I was just making an extra batch of gravy for later when the handle on the pot decided to break as I was turning to pour it into the bowl to cool. Thank goodness it had already cooled some or I could have really gotten burned. Yep... that mess is gravy! Not fun to clean up, I'll tell you that much.
Luckily the place we rent is really close to where we live, so I could run home to change. Trust me, when I walked in the door the dogs thought they had hit the jack pot. lol I dogs dream... the person you love... covered in gravy! lol
I wanted to be sure to tell you all that the December Fancy Pants Newsletter is out today. It's full of inspiration!!! You can see it here NEWSLETTER
Here is a peek at a few things I have in this issue

I hope you are all taking time for yourselfs during this holiday season. Give yourself permission for that... it's okay.... really it is :)
