Hello everyone. As I'm enjoying a favorite time of year, I am realizing that the seasons change so quickly. Time seems to pass right before my eyes. When I enjoyed this beautiful scenery with Eric on our anniversary last month, the trees were all ablaze with bright, colorful leaves. A few days later the leaves were mostly fallen.
Then Halloween came and passed in an instant. The days of dressing up for my girls are over but they still enjoyed time with friends and managed to nab some candy too. Jordan carved her yearly Jack-o-lantern and I am reminded that I have pumpkin seeds to toast for her.
My sister and her husband just purchased a new lake home near here. I'm hoping we'll see them lots more and that my sister and I can actually spend time quilting, junking and chatting it up over crock pot dinners.
Spending time with my family is high on my list this holiday season. There's nothing better than those little moments like when your dad and sister come knocking on the door with a colorful bundle of Bittersweet branches they just picked. Or sitting around the holiday table for a big Thanksgiving dinner. Or finding a new deer antler for my collection while on a walk in the woods with the girls and Charlie.
I definitely plan on spending lots of time by the fire just reading, snuggling in a warm quilt and visiting with my girls about basketball and their days at school and upcoming dances. And looking at the photos on the deer camera that Eric shows us every couple of days. That big buck is out there just waiting for him. (uh, not the one he hit with his car this week though).
Yes, I'll be home for the holidays. I hope you will join me for some very fun festivities happening here on the blog all throughout the holiday season. I'll be back tomorrow with a list of all the fun happenings....and perhaps an actual list that I can write them all down in. See you soon.
Oh, by the way......is this thing on? Just making sure I still have blog readers out there. ;)
