First Snow

Best Friends

Our Boots



Thursday morning we awoke to a light dusting of snow! Most of it melted before the afternoon, but you would have thought we had a blizzard with all the excitement around here. I bundled up the two little monkeys & even though it was super chilly outside they played for a good hour in the back yard. Hard to believe it's already that time of year again. Am I the only one with an increased amount of laundry to do now that the days are colder? I feel like my baskets are never empty.

 May I just tell you how much I love our new home? Today we drove through our old neighborhood & visited the old house. I didn't get that pain in my heart. It still made me a little sad to see the old studio/playhouse in the back yard. I walked on the little porch & peeked inside. So many great memories. The grass has died & the garden was overgrown. The whole place felt lifeless. Our new home is finding it's way into my heart. Memories are being made, our life story slowly unfolding and leaving its imprint on each and every inch. I love it.

I have a few plans for this weekend. The first is to finish up 150 invitations for a church party our Relief Society is having in December. They want to pass them out on Sunday, I'm half way finished. I sketched up the last 4 cards I'm making for Simply Sweet Marriage & should have the December card started on Sunday. Looks like I'll be working mostly on cards for the next couple days. Should be fun. Dean & I will be planning out all our meals for Thanksgiving week. His moms whole family is coming! I can hardly wait. We figure if we plan our meals it will keep us from running to the store everyday & eating out too much. I'm excited to try this recipe for our thanksgiving dessert. Maybe it will be a new family favorite. What are your plans for the weekend?
