A Thanksgiving Prayer

I have said it before and I will say it again, I Love This Time Of Year! I especially love Thanksgiving. What is better than a day of  THANKS, quality time with my loved ones, eating amazing food and honoring family traditions? Yesterday my daughter and I came across this poem in an old poem book and I had to share it with you! I printed this in 8X10 and then framed it. I think it will make a perfect dinner prayer.

Hope you all have a Very Happy Thanksgiving!


Red Cup Season

November 1st I received several text messages from friends telling me that the Starbucks Red Cup was out. They all know I love the Red Cups. I know its just a cup but its what the Cup means that I love so much. Its a sign that holidays are around the corner, that snow days are ahead of us, and my favorite of all, it means there will be more family time together. This is the time of year memories are made. I bake with my kids more, spend more time together at home, & catch up with family and friends that I don't get to see enough of. So the Red Cup has arrived, and I am thrilled!
Happy November to everyone. I have many things to be thankful for this year and my list starts with my Red Cup, Cheers!


Subway Art 4 Our Family

I had to make one! Everyone has made the cutiest subway art and I really, really wanted one for my kitchen that represented our family
 SO here it is...
I used microsoft publisher. It was easy just takes time. Go into page setup and change the height & width of your project to fit the frame you’ll use. I used 11x14, it was what I had lying around. Then just start making text boxes with words!


Who dosen't LOVE a FREE day??

Last week I took the kids to the FREE day at the Zoo! We had a great time.
