Our Day of Thanks

Our Thanksgivings are always very low key and this is something that Curtis and I thankful for. This year Bryar and I made a trip our to Kmart early in the morning to see if we could grab and deals, which was a total bust besides a few 2 liters. Charli enjoyed the parade and made a float out of building blocks that she rolled around the house until Bryar destroyed. My amazing baker Husband baked 2 homemade pumpkin pies to take to the dinners that we attended and boy was he proud of them. I even had to email him a picture to show off because one was just "perfect looking." But I won't bore y'all are with another picture of another pie.
Thanksgiving day was absolutely beautiful. The weather could not have been anymore perfect, so Charli spent the day outside. Bryar has had a touch of a cold and cutting a tooth so his fuss pot self spent the late morning trying to get in a super short nap. Then he had a fun wagon ride next door to Mimi's house for lunch. Poor B was not a happy camper with the lack of sleep and teething going on. But after lots of food, he perked right up.

We headed to my hometown in the late afternoon to have dinner with my family. I swear we all ate like kings again, especially Bryar. I love hearing people rave over just how much he is eats, and I pray he stays like this forever. (Picky eaters are not allowed in my home.) After we were finished eating, my Mom and I headed to Walmart for some super early Black Friday shopping. Curtis and the kids stayed behind to play cards and hang out. Can you believe that there was a fight over a fire pitt at the Walmart we were at? Seriously, people are nuts. It just does not make sense to be so tore up over materialized things. We didn't get much that we went for but had a great time together. To me that is what Black Friday is all about. Staying up all night, acting silly and eating food all through the night. But again this year I was home in bed by midnight. Thanking The Lord for my cozy home and calling it a night.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
