Happy Thanksgiving 2016

Reflecting back to a Thanksgiving I will never forget.   I am so thankful for where God has brought us from .  It has been a long road but boy, what miracles He has given us!

~We have so much to be thankful for~

I've spent the last few weeks decorating for Christmas.  As a girl, I always wanted to have our tree up for Thanksgiving, but back then, it was considered taboo.  Now, as an adult, 
(hard to believe I've been one for over 30 years)
I've put our tree up and it's considered a tradition now with my girls.   
Decorations are all finished inside and out so  stay tuned for after Thanksgiving because I will be sharing A LOT of photos of everything!  Here is a peak at outside. 
All in blue and more beautiful in person!

I decided to go with red bows and pine.  
Now only if it would snow!

The leaves are ok, lol!  But I want snow!

As my family gather at our home this year to eat some turkey, I want to make sure they all know my prayer is this....and for you too.

 I pray you're all blessed with family, friends and fond memories.
