A Little Bit of This and That

I’ve had this post saved and just have been busy so I’m going to go ahead and hit publish it without any changes to it, hope
you don’t mind! I don’t have to much to do on my project it’s just getting the time to do it!
Hi everyone, it’s been a busy month for me and probably for you too!
Thanksgiving is next week,our 21# turkey is in the fridge thawing out for
the big day. Until then I’ve been trying not to get overwhelmed/stressed out… just
trying to enjoy the days whether they are spent Christmas shopping or just being at
home. I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas
but was getting my fall dishes out of the cabinet when I found these Williams Sonoma
mugs I had found at Goodwill a couple years ago and decided to enjoy them now

I also decided to move my cookbooks from above the fridge to up above my
stove and I couldn’t resist putting a faux poinsettia up there too. Once I put the
lighted garland up there it will really look nice!

I have most everything out just waiting to be put in their special places…things
from Target, TJMaxx and Walmart! I’ll get it all put together right after turkey
day, it’s so hard to wait when I see all the great inspiration out there in blogland
and on instagram!

My oldest grandchild Sydney turned 13 this past week… I can’t believe it! We celebrated by
having her friends and family at the bowling alley to bowl and have pizza! I’m so proud
of her she does so well in school and sports.

Here are her friends , they had such a good time, and  it was fun for me just
to sit back and watch Sydney have such a good time!

My Fridays have been taken up by football, my oldest son coaches a highschool team
and they made it to the semi finals , here he is talking to a reporter. I will say that I
froze at every game that we played lately, I don’t do cold very well! Well, the
game before we would play at Heinz Field we lost, he did such an incredible job
with those kids. No matter how old your kids get your heart still hurts when they

Nice reading all your recap, Rondell! I'm also trying to put every pretty thing in their special place. Hey, love those mugs. Looking forward to your pretty Christmas decor. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing your Christmas decor. I bet it's fun watching your son do his job. Not everyone gets to do that! My youngest son is the same age as your granddaughter. She is really pretty. I think a bowling party is perfect at that age.

Loved seeing the pics of your granddaughter. Ethan turned 16, and Maddie just turned 13 two weeks ago. Having the grandkids turn to teenagers has been a whole new page in my book. Don't you just love it?
Your girl is so pretty, Rondell! LOVE her name!
It's inspiring that you are so proud of your family.
Have fun decorating for Christmas. You always do such a nice job making your home all cozy for the holidays.

I know what you mean. Time passes by way too fast. There are not enough hours in the day. Happy Christmas decorating Rondell.

Hugs and Kisses,

Happy Belated Birthday to your granddaughter and congrats to your son's team for making it so far. You're an awesome mom for coming out in the cold to support the team.
