so so thankful …

for a casual Thanksgiving dinner that I didn’t have to cook (thanks to my awesome SIL!) …

for a sweet little niece calling me “Aunt Teri” …

for s’mores around a bon fire …

This is the aftermath … 1 box of graham crackers, 6 Hershey bars and a bag of marshmallows later :)

for amazing finds at the thrift and antique stores …

for cousins cracking up while bouncing on a trampoline …

It is nearly impossible to get a clear picture of 3 kiddos bouncing like Mexican jumping beans … but you get the idea!

for cookbooks and family recipes passed down from The Saint’s dad …

for a Twilight movie marathon …


Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?  I’d like Jacob to look at with Edward’s romantic side!

for a big pot of chili as the temperature dropped …

for a guinea pig named Hamster …

This is Hamster … the guinea pig ;)  Gotta love that!

for non-existent or terrible pictures taken on my iPhone because fun was being had and talking at night with sticky s’mores fingers took precedence over snapping photos and the very life that I am beyond thankful for was happening!


Blessed beyond measure, happy beyond words!

I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving if you celebrated or just a fantastic November weekend!
