It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

winter!! And a lot like Christmas because of the snow. This was our beautiful view as we pulled away from my mother's house in Colorado. It's so breathtaking there. Just look at those mountains in the background! Why did we leave again? Hmmm... We had a lovely Thanksgiving and a big thanks goes to my brother and sister-in-law who were perfect hosts in every way. Everyone felt welcome, there was no bedlam, the food was wonderful, and the family ties grew. Thanks so much to my mother as well. You always treat us like royalty. I'm nearly 50 and I never get tired of being mothered! We also enjoyed a visit from my dad and step-mother at the end of our Thanksgiving vacation so we are full to the brim with family love. Last and not least was our time with our girl. She headed back to school today and we were so blessed to be together. She's a gem. We thank God for all of these folks, for safe travel, and a warm home to embrace us back again. Now it's on to the Christmas dance!

  1. I love the picture! Sometimes I wonder too why I ever left Colorado, but I wouldn't give up the farm for anything! Glad you had a great time with your family!
