Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

Weekend Plans

Happy Friday, my friends. I hope your week was happy and healthy and cozy as can be!
Our week was filled with fun, food, and friends.
And plenty of cozy too.

My awesome sister-in-law Beth got Flynn the most fun game for her birthday.
We have played a great deal of Yeti In My Spaghetti!



We attended Steve's work party and had a wonderful night.
And when did my son get so grown up??

Peyton and Flynn made this delicious cookie pizza while we were there.
Soo good!



The puppies got their much needed Christmas haircuts.
And were quite happy to pose for pictures afterward.






 Finally...We celebrated Madison with a Christmas themed bridal shower!
It was a beautiful day, and we were blessed to share it with the special women in our lives.
I adore this last picture with my mom and the engaged couple!
My lovely niece Hope took these beautiful photographs to document the day as her gift to Madison.
Thanks so much Hope!

Thanks for visiting!
Have a cozy December weekend!!!!!
Our plans involve lots of wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows, along with flour, sugar, cocoa, and chocolate chips! We are wrapping and baking in preparation for Christmas!

    1. It is a cute game where you try to remove pieces of spaghetti without knocking over a Yeti!
      Sounds silly, but is really fun. : )
