Home or Thankful
You may have noticed my lack of blog posts the past few weeks. Honestly, I will be thankful when November is over! It has been a rough month and I feel like we have had more than our share of "rain". But in the midst of the challenges I know we are still being blessed. I just have to remind myself that the sun does shine through the clouds and often there is a beautiful rainbow if you just stop and look for it.
In the Kitchen
December is right around the corner! Growing up we always bought a case of oranges around Christmastime, since there was always one in our stocking. So now I crave oranges this time of year and you can always find some in my kitchen.
It seems that I was going to stretch this prompt no matter what,
so I decided to share a couple of unrelated photos.
Don't you just love my family of Christmas reindeer? (It's a couple and their children!) I have been looking for deer like these for years. One of my dear friends asked her father make these for me and I was so happy when they arrived this week. Bring on Christmas!
While waiting with my kids to see Santa arrive at the mall via helicopter, I noticed there were tons of pigeons flying around the parking lot. So I decided to take a few shots for the fun of it. I absolutely loved this one of the sun shining through its wings.
I call these my Christmas bubbles. I used some red, white and green paper as a backdrop for this picture of oil bubbles in water.
We usually put up our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving and this year was no exception. The boys were SO excited to help me put the ornaments on the tree! Jonah was especially helpful in getting the ornaments high enough and making sure they were spread out.
ps. In case you were wondering, our trip to the dentist to get Jonah's teeth pulled did not go well. He panicked and I couldn't calm him down enough to get him numb. So we got to make another dentist appointment for him to get his teeth pulled, only this time he will be sedated (which of course our insurance doesn't cover). Ugh! I will be glad when we are done with this whole thing!
