{Good Times With Family}

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our family surely enjoyed our day with extended family. We always have MORE than you could imagine to eat and such a great time together.  Granddaughter Mallory turned 14 on Nov. 23rd so we celebrated her a few days before Thanksgiving with cake and ice cream. She had a great birthday. She went to see The Christmas Carol at the Alhambra Dinner Theatre and loved it.   We snapped a few pictures on Thanksgiving day and as always, I am so proud of my family.  I did take a little time for "tea time" and whipped up a pineapple, mango, and cinnamon spice loaded tea. YUM! We loaded up Thanksgiving afternoon and went with the guys to our hunting grounds and done a little hunting, eating out and shopping. My oldest daughter didn't go as my grandson had a football game. Which, she doesn't hunt either but hates being left out so.... She cloned herself in our picture. LOL! Aren't these shoes the cutest? I found these at TJ Maxx

Happy Fall!

The last time I blogged was September 11th. A lot has happened in the last few months that has taken a lot of my most needed attention. I have "given" myself permission to blog when I can and when I can't then I just can't. Do you get that way sometimes? You feel like you have to give yourself permission to be what you can, when you can and to whom you can?  I have missed some of you guys a lot and I know that several of my sweet blogging friends has kept me abreast of things and also has been my prayer partner over the past few months. THANK YOU from the depths of my heart!  I've had ladies ask me, "why do you blog?" and I guess my truthful answer would be that it is a way for me to express myself..whether it be sharing the things that I am passionate about or simply the things
