Thanksgiving Wishes

So thankful once again this year for so much~a faithful spouse, two healthy boys, family on both sides, and friends. I have learned this year to look for blessing and good in the little things in life.

Two quotes I have enjoyed..........
"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. "~Thornton Wilder

"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving." W.T. Purkiser

Gooble Gobble!

I saw this adorable idea from Our Best Bites blog and I am strongly thinking of doing it for Thanksgiving. We have 7 kids in the mix and I know they would enjoy them and best of all they could eat them afterwards! Plus they'd add some color and fun to the table!!

Fall Colors

Today sure feels more like Fall, with temperatures steady at 49* and overcast with drizzle. I enjoyed taking a few pictures of our Dogwood tree that is finally turning colors and playing with my camera. As I drove to town today, I noticed just how vibrant the colors have finally become. Seems like it is later this year than usual. I love this time of year!

Bathroom Update

This is Day 3 of the destruction.....more to come this week. Bathtub/shower unit should be here by Thursday, cabinets picked out, looking for an armoire to use as a linen closet. We are going to have two sinks instead of one, plus new light/heater combo for the ceiling over the shower(we have had only one light over sink, so shower area was dim). I am going to LOVE our bathroom!!

Grandma and Grandpa

We had a fun weekend with my parents here. Mom and I enjoyed some shopping together and Dad work around the yard and shed helping to organize things. We all enjoyed great company and good times!

Mom helped Bryce put together his Fire Rescue Lego helicopeter.

Dad playing Zingo with the boys!

A fun mess

Remodeling has begun in our master bathroom alittle earlier than planned. A week or so ago, water began dripping downstairs while I was taking a shower, culprit the bathtub. We planned to begin this winter, but it all began yesterday evening and a lot has been accomplished in just two evenings. I am excited to see the finished project, but in the meantime it is very dusty and messy in our bedroom. It is so fun to see the boys helping to tear things apart and beating things with the hammer and crowbar!
