A trip to Illinois to visit with my family and to celebrate my dad's birthday!
where we played one of my most favorite games-- salad bowl (if you want to know how to play, just ask)
Each year for Thanksgiving my grandma comes up with a new craft. This year's craft was awesome.
We made these adorable trees. The wood is from my grandpa's old barn and, if you know me I'm a huge suckers for family heirlooms and antique things. I loooove it! It was quite the project though--
power tools and all!
Then I started painting the guest bathroom and realized the color was awful. Ok, awful is a strong word. It was a pretty color, but way to bold for the walls in our house. Now we have three gallons of this color of paint. First time homeowner fail. If you are interested in it, please let me know.
We've been indulging in lots of s'mores by the fireplace and hot coco, too.
Also, I decked the house for Christmas.
Another craft added the list was this burlap bow tree topper.
Then there are the two trips to Ikea-- obviously happy and successful ones.
And of course, there is spending time with these two, which is my favorite.
(sorry for the poor quality-- blame the iPhone)
