Was Thanksgiving really a week ago already????
My head is still spinning from it all and I'm t-minus 2 days away from our next set of company arriving! So before more time slips away and I jump back into all of my planned posts for the month
I've got to share just a bit of the crazy fun that took place.
The men said my picnic table wouldn't fit inside. My Dad said it couldn't be done ;)
It was done and it was awesome!
Plates were filled, toasts were made, stories told.
My home soaked up all the laughter.
Little boys fell in love with their Sassy.
We watched Elf after the meal
while little ones snuck extra
Family pictures were attempted
I do love Mr. Dooze ~
the gracious host his momma raised him to be...
I don't think we quiet captured it
these little men....sigh....
Mr. Doozie likens it to herding cats.
My momma, the Mimi, some know her by Jam
She is amazing....a true rock star....
A morning beach workout was in order....the entire family was there
Yes a few men wore kilts.
The Mimster smoked us all and smiled the whole way.
200 man pushups!
Mr. Doozie and I took it all very seriously.
Beachside breakfast after to celebrate.
Back to the house to open gifts.
The theme from all the kids...
The littles sang a song we wrote
Bluebird house, felt pillow, beaded ornaments
a sketch, tea towel and hand cream
nesting bluebirds and a coffee cozy
Her day was wrapped in love.
Hugs and kisses, tears shed
3,000 pictures later and this just may be
Our Christmas Card!
Because this year has been about life,
the messy, loud, wonderful family we have.
I'd rather show you that any day!
