Now that Thanksgiving is officially over (our recap coming to the blog next week) it’s time to prep for Christmas. I have created a Printable Christmas Bucket List for your to make the most out of the Christmas season. Enjoy!
Happy Thanksgiving friends! It has become abundantly clear to me within the last year just how much God has blessed me and my family. I am so thankful today for his grace. I am thankful for my wonderfully supportive and encouraging husband who doesn’t complain when I go on three trips back to back and leave him to care for our family. I am thankful for my kids who stretch me in so many ways, who melt my heart on a daily basis, and make life so fun. I am thankful for our extended family who are examples to us and are a source of unending support. I am thankful for our home. That we have a place to call our own and fill with memories. I am thankful for our jobs which allow us to spend our days at home raising our babies. I am thankful for friends old and new. And so much more.
I hope you all are having a fabulous Thanksgiving. Cheers!
Here is a little update of what has been going on in our lives via Instagram. Follow me at jennycollier to keep up with all of our adventures.
We painted the brick on our house. Here is a little before & after (or during rather). That man in the bottom picture surely hates me. They were 80% finished with the painting and I changed the brick color on him. But I am so happy that I did…because I love the final results.
We wrote our official letters to Santa Claus and put them in the mail:
Grandpa & Grandma came from Kansas for a visit:
Ella was sick with a virus for the last couple of weeks and we were stuck at home. But she is on the mend and feeling much better!
Court and I went to the Justin Timberlake concert with my best friend Teah, her sister Mollie, and some friends from our neighborhood. It was so much fun! We danced the entire night!
I wrapped up 24 books for our annual Christmas book advent. We were going to opt out this year because the wrapping is tedious but I’m glad that I buckled down and did it because I know the kids love it.
