Let me begin by saying, it is cold. I am ashamed to say that I need to buy Daisy a new coat. She is so scrawny and skinny, every time she goes outside to do her 'business' she is shivering like crazy. I am an anti-get-your-dog-a-sweater/coat. Someone has a weird sense of humor.
And then to top it off, Kipper will need a sweater also.
Someone is out to get me. :P
He recently got his haircut, and now he is shivering, too.
Reilly on the other hand is SO FAT he has enough to keep him warm even if he went to the Arctic.
The son had a birthday.
It was just family, one of his best friends and another friend ( not that way) who came to observe a Hispanic family celebrating.
Thanksgiving came with the 'twins' performing in their first production (which spans decades) as part of the Cousins Circle Players.
It was a musical.
Dancing with bog brother.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It forces family together with out the stress of gifts, but still keeping GOD in HIS place as Provider and Giver of all good things.
Still soon after our wonderful meal, we were on to getting the tree.
The whole crew came. Well, not the whole crew, our son and his wife were not able to make it, but the rest of the kids came, as well as my niece and her fiance.
It was getting dark by the second and we had to find a tree QUICK!!
And here it is!!!
Meet our tree. We should name him.
How about Troy?
Thankfulyl the Conts. also found a good tree in time. Once it got dark the place is not lighted so...
The grandson loves to 'drive'. Peanut #2 was freezing.
John with his vegan cupcake on his birthday celebration.
We are gearing up for what will hopefully be a holy advent season. Always trying to keep HIM in the center of the holiday season, as well as enjoying traditions with the kids.
I pray you may see HIS Coming as the gift that it truly is!
