Meanwhile, we have enjoyed a fun and cozy week here at home with our Madison.
We took selfies on our way to Mass...
And a quick photo of my girls before we went in.
After we dropped Rhett off because he was serving. : )
Madison whipped up the most delicious cranberry orange muffins!
If you would like the recipe, visit her here!
They were perfect for our afternoon tea.
Life is wonderful isn't it?
I remember making muffins years ago, and sitting at our kitchen table with a three year old Madison, pretending we were having tea. I miss that little spunky, ponytailed girl. But I am enjoying this lovely, independent woman drinking tea with me now so very much.
Look who flew across the ocean to spend his first Thanksgiving with us!!!
Flynn was very happy to see him.
We all were.
And we were also happy to see the delicious chocolates he brought us from Hotel Chocolat in Copenhagen.
Nicolas works there, and was kind enough to bring us some of their amazingly decadent chocolates!
Nicolas' sweet mother Kirsten surprised me by sending over the cutest little Danish elf!
He is absolutely precious!
And lastly, I snapped this photo last week and found it to be beautifully symbolic.
A perfect leaf, fallen to the ground, its job complete.
Right nearby, some helicopter seeds...
A reminder that life will begin again in the spring.
And a dusting of snow...nature's gift signifying the end of one season and the beginning of another.
Have a blessed and cozy weekend, my friends.
Thank you for visiting. : )
