Thursday Thoughts

Today I am thinking about...

Birthdays! Flynn and Madison both have birthdays in the next couple of weeks. I am all ready for Flynn's big day. The cake is ordered and the presents are bought. Cinderella to the rescue! Madison is a bit more tricky...Eighteen is a big one, and not quite as easy to plan without input. Right now she is leaning toward a Frozen theme. She loves all things Disney. : ) Her birthday is the day before Thanksgiving, so I am not quite sure what she wants to have for dinner. Things will come together, right?! : ) I love November birthdays. And I love my November birthday girls.

Here is what we have been up to in our country home...

As if Tara visiting our home weren't enough, she brought sweet touches for us all.
November mornings are lovely here...
but November evenings are my favorite. : )
All ready to begin our family Christmas 2014...
with our annual Ornament Day at Hallmark.
They chose ornaments that reflect their personalities perfectly!
Madison...Christmas Vacation
Flynn...Cinderella : )
And of course...snuggles in Christmas jammies are a must this time of year. : )
Leaving you with a selfie with my happy am I that she loves to spend time with her almost 18 years old?!?
Have a wonderful weekend!
