Decking the Halls...

This may be a new record for getting the tree up early this year!!  This year's Christmas decorations were hand picked from the Sanders Christmas vault by Zane! And he is all too proud;) His absolute favorite is the vintage Santa and a silver sparkle ball we got from a friend's wedding a few years ago!

Liam wast quite amazed with the lights as we decorated;)  There is nothing quite like seeing a child with Christmas lights for the first time.  
 And no sooner the tree when up...well then Fred the elf came and he brought back up!  

I love Christmas!!

Just a little November Recap...

Just a quick recap to catch you up on November;)
 Made my usual meat pies but this year I made one for our church youth Thanksgiving dinner.  I was happy to share it.

We also celebrated my little niece Macie's 5th birthday.  She is growing up so fast!
Speaking of growing up so fast, would you look at my little pilgram?!  He has to be the cutest one ever.
 So we went to Z's school for thanksgiving lunch...he was so excited!!
As for our real Thanksgiving day lunch...we took a little family road trip and spent the holiday with my parents in Fairhope, AL.
We went eat at The Grand Hotel for lunch with my parents and my brother and sister in law.  We are not a big fan of such a fancy and formal Thanksgiving lunch...we much rather a home cooked family meal but to have our whole family together, including my brother and his new wife for the first time since I can remember...well I'll take it!
