Thanksgiving Day... and More!

This Thanksgiving was simple.

That's the way I like it.

Unlike most years in the past, we celebrated this holiday at home with just us.  It was so relaxing... so laid-back actually that we FORGOT the mashed potatoes till about five minutes before eating!  Everything else was wonderful though!

Enjoy these holiday pics!

Thankfulness... Looking back at this week


These past couple days have been a whirlwind of happenings, leaving me with hardly any time to check my email, let alone update my blogs! I'm sitting in the kitchen at the little breakfast table/nook listening to my sister name off movies she'd like to watch tonight and half-watching my dad as he drains the turkey frame for our turkey-frame soup that we'll be able to enjoy on Sunday!

So, a recap of the three week-days before Thanksgiving: (warning, this will be a log-ish post, but fun since I have pictures to go with Wednesday!)

Little Leaf

I adore this picture.
I was playing around with the camera one day and fell in love.
Bright red leaf
Green, yellow, and brown grass.

It's C-c-cold Outside!

I'm a cold person.
No, not cold-hearted.
I'm not Ebenezer Scrooge.
(I love "A Christmas Carol"!)

"Everygirl", Part Two

For the second part of my “Everygirl” series, I wanted to do an interview with the most special, amazing woman in my life: my mom!  Her story is a testimony of God’s love.  Enjoy this peek into a woman’s heart and how God can turn a life completely around!

Wednesday Wardrobe

I won't deny it.  I won't even try.  I like clothes.  That's a good thing, I think, since I have no choice but to wear them.  :-)
What's frustrating for me though is that good clothes are hard to find.  Finding good and modest clothes is even harder.  And then when you try to find good, modest, and affordable clothes it's nearly impossible in some places.  I know shopping isn't going well when I leave Kohls with only a scarf in my shopping bag.  But, sadly, that's sometimes all I can find that's decent in the entire building.  Getting creative has been a MUST with me through the years as I endeavor to dress in a way that sets a good example to my sisters in Christ, doesn't cause my brothers in Christ is stumble, and honors my Savior.

What are little girls made of, made of?
What are little girls made of?

Sugar and spice
And everything nice.
That's what little girls are made of.

Everygirl, Part One

One of my favorite songs is Michael W. Smith's "Old Enough to Know", which was written back in the mid-eighties.  The music (which is, yes, definitely eighties!) is wonderful and the lyrics touched my heart.  If you haven't heard this song before, I would encourage you to listen to it!  The whole album (The Big Picture) is great, but this song has really stood out to me the most. Here are the lyrics and also my thoughts following:
