It is the weekend before Thanksgiving and all I can think about is what I will be making on Thursday. We have got our turkey, potatoes, corn, and cranberry sauce. But, I am still looking for recipes for stuffing, a dessert, and perhaps anything else that catches my eye. It is just going to be Colin and me for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately my family is too far away and Colin will be working a lot that week anyways. And, well, his family is in California and Washington, so that's out of the question. But, I think it will be fun. And, hey, we will have a lot of leftovers!

It is our tradition to cut down our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving...unfortunately Colin works 7a-6p that day, so we may have to do it the day before Thanksgiving, or a few after. Last year was really fun; we found a tree farm that had horse and wagon rides through a snowy path to the trees. After we cut ours down, we took a ride back to the main building, sipped some cider, and waited for our tree to be shook and bound to take home. Oh, I love Christmas!


  1. Hope you guys have a lovely Thanksgiving! :)

    Have fun cutting down your Christmas tree - I am looking forward to decorating our house soon! And it is too funny that Colin works 7-6 pm that is one of my DH's shifts too!

    Good luck on your class, I bet you'll do great!

    p.s. Heard "Grace Like Rain" on your player this morning and I LOVE that song.

  2. Sounds like you're going to have an awesome Thanksgiving! Leftovers are the best! It's so sweet to hear your tradition of cutting down your Christmas tree. How sweet! Congrats on your CNA class! Can't wait to hear about what God has in store for you next!

  3. We have that tradition too! It's so fun to search through tree after tree, until finally you see IT, the ONE, that one tree that is perfect for YOUR living room! And it's so fun to get it so fresh so it lasts so much longer for you to enjoy. Have fun!

  4. PS - congrats on getting into CNA class! I have been a NICU RN for six years now, and I love it so much! I think you've made a wonderful career decision!
