Thanksgiving and Tree Pickin' {2012}

Happy Thanksgiving from @magpie26 and Bo.

I was far too busy cooking and eating and eating again to chronicle Thanksgiving Day on my phone.
I did however take advantage of the 70 degree weather we were having.
Rounded the kids up in the yard for a long overdue photo shoot with my real camera.
Yes I still own one.

I'm glad I had my phone nearby though...otherwise I may have missed this shot.
Maggie and Bo.
His sweet face.
Her beautiful face.
I melt.

Guesstures with family. Thanksgiving tradition. @tymcawesome

Guesstures with the family {extended included}
A Thanksgiving tradition.
Boys vs. Girls.
Lots of smack talk goes on here.
I'm talkin' someone from each team has to keep score.
No worries.
Girls remain victorious.
Every. Single. Time.

This Black Friday brought to you @oopajm1 #dunkindonuts #blackfriday

The hubby obliged to head out on Black Friday with me.
He's not a sore loser.
We didn't do crazy people hours.
Got out around everything we were looking for.
Take that sleep deprived crazy people.

Tree pickin' time. #christmas

Day after Thanksgiving is Tree Pickin' Day at our house.
We visit the same farm every year.

THE one. #christmas

The kids picked the most beautiful tree I think we've ever had.

She's a beauty. Tonight we light her up. It's tradition. #christmas #onlyarealtreeforme #tradition


Take your magazine worthy, Pinterest inspired trees...just give me this. Not one single decorative ball on there. Only ornaments hand crafted by my three kiddos...and souvenir ornaments from our adventures as a family all these years. My heart is full...j

Not one decorative ball on my tree.
Nothing but handmade ornaments from the kiddos and souvenir ornaments from our travels as a family.
Even the star is made from a cone-shaped water cooler cup and a coffee filter.
My sixteen year old made it when he was five.
Wouldn't take a million dollars for it.
Take your magazine cover worthy tree.
I'll keep my tree of memories.

My second all time favorite Christmas song. "The baby in her womb, He was the maker of the moon, He was author of the faith, that could make the mountains move" @andrewpeterson

No tree trimming party would be complete without some Holiday tunage.
Possibly my favorite Christmas song.
I dare you not to cry.

Ain't even gonna lie. I'm 36 and totally jammin' to this right now. #unashamed @justinbieber

And on a less serious more heathen note, if you don't have some JB on your Christmas playlist... you are missing out.
We were jamming to this song tonight on the way home and Aidan said, "Mom, who is Shawty anyway??"
He was dead serious.
I didn't know whether to laugh or repent.

I love this guy. #imayneverlethimgrowup @aidan1scool

Have I told you lately how much joy this boy brings to my life?
Or how big he is getting?
Or how much I don't like it?
Or that I plan to keep him little forever?

Yeah. This.

This is my world right now.
Boo hiss.
I'm pretty much miserable and whiny.
But I ain't gonna lie...I get a little too excited when it's time to take those gloriously green horse pills up there.
Nothing like Nyquil sleep.
