Happy Thanksgiving

This was our first Thanksgiving in our new house. My hubby decided to cook prime rib so we decided to invite all our family over for Thanksgiving dinner. We entertained 20 people!

I love Thanksgiving…it’s such a wonderful holiday. I’m so thankful for all the many blessings that I enjoy every day of my life. I’m thankful for my family and friends, my home, my health, my country, my church & church family…I’m especially thankful and blessed to have such a wonderful hubby and most of all I’m thankful for Jesus and his great sacrifice for me and for the forgiveness of my sins.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my bloggy friends!

49 & Holding!

Yesterday was my mother-in-laws 49th birthday! We celebrated by going to Roadhouse (Teresa’s most favorite place to eat) then had birthday cake with the whole family.
Gavin was our entertainment for the evening…he was loving all the attention. Happy Birthday Teresa!!!

Our Backyard

I love fall! I love when the leaves start turning colors. Take a look at the view my hubby & I enjoy from our back patio. It’s so beautiful… the pictures don’t do it justice.

Weekend Getaway

Last weekend my hubby & I went to Dallas for a weekend getaway. We stayed with our Dallas family, Dave & Paula. They’re really not related to us but while I was living in Dallas, they treated me like family and I even lived with them for a year before I moved back home. It is always so much fun to go back and visit with them. I always look forward to our visits.

Our main goal for going to Dallas last weekend was to do some Christmas shopping but we ended up only buying for ourselves…which is usually the case. We went to Denton on Saturday to meet up with my best friend from college, Bonny, and her new hubby, Kirk. It was so nice to visit with them and catch up. Then we went to a UNT football…they aren’t very good this year…so we stayed until halftime then left to do more shopping. We ate like pigs all weekend! I loved it. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends!
