How quickly our children grow. It seems as if yesterday I was cuddling them and breathing in the soft baby smells of johnson baby lotion & powder. These days most of my kids are taller than me and I have to hold my nose when I pull the athletic socks out of the dirty laundry hamper to put in the washing machine. How did it happen so quickly?

I am way behind on posts and things that have happened since my last post. I'm not sure if I should try to catch up or start over. While I ponder about that here are my Thanksgiving reflections. I cooked a turkey this year and we had thanksgiving at home. Normally we would spend Thanksgiving with my in-laws ( My mother in-law makes the absolute best dressing!!!!!!), but this year we decided to get my Mom from the nursing home and have her for the day. She enjoyed it so much & I was so thankful and grateful that she was with us. She has had some major health issues in recent years and we've almost lost her several times, but she is an incredible woman with amazing determination and an unwavering faith in God. We thank God that she is improving and doing well. Here are some photos from Thanksgiving.

The Turkey after.
It wasn't long after the meal when, you guessed it, everybody started to get drowsy. My hubby nodded off first. So while he was sleeping the kids and I decided a little fun Thanksgiving glee was needed to wake everybody up.
We had just the idea of what to do when memaw said she needed some cool whip on her sweet potato pie.

We live in a great neighborhood. We moved here 6 years ago and before that time we never went "Trick or Treating" with our children. We would let them dress up in a non-scary costume and attend a church fall festival but we didn't live in an area where they could go door to door and trick or treat. When we moved here some of the families in our church that had young children invited us to trick or treat with them in our neighborhood and we have been doing it ever since. We all met at a friends house and had grilled hot dogs & homemade chili. Then went trick or treating and ended with a bonfire to roast marshmallows.

There was frost on the pumpkins in my neck of the woods this morning! And speaking of pumpkins, I just have to share this picture I took of a serving of pumpkin crunch that I made. This recipe is so easy and soooooo good. I'll post it as soon as I can find it. In the meantime enjoy the picture.
