So Blessed!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It was such a sweet day. We woke up early, cooked and watched the Macy's day parade- Charlie stared at the TV - it was so cute.
We celebrated with Craig's mom and step dad(CZ and BZ) and Aunt Leigh.
{my family is all up in Colorado visiting Brooke, Jason and boys, and Craig's dad in Alexandria with the Kingrea's-we couldn't travel b/c Craig has work tomorrow}.
Craig and I did a whole lot of cooking- it was fun-our first Thanksgiving at our home and Charlie's first turkey day. I used my Granny's china we inherited, my mom's linens, my mother-in-law's silver that was given to us, and our crystal- love using all my pretties and entertaining!! Charlie passed out in his bouncy seat at the table while we gave thanks to God, ate, all talked at the same time, laughed, and ate some more.

Counting our sweet Blessings on this day to give thanks...

A Fun Night

Craig's cousin, and our dear friends, Caroline and Cliff-got married on Saturday night. We had such a great time! Caroline was such a beautiful bride and the wedding was a blast! It was Charlie's very first night spending the night away from Mommy and Daddy. He stayed at Mame' and Pops so we could stay out and sleep in!

I couldn't help but post these adorable pics of Charlie sporting his new Snow Hat that we got him for when we go to Colorado in Jan.


Precious Puppy

Charlie was a PRECIOUS little puppy for his first Halloween! He looked adorable! But he didn't care too much for his costume!We had people over, and although I was sick with a virus, we had a great night. Also, Halloween was Charlie's very first night to sleep 5.5 hours straight... must have been all that stimulation! He also rolled over for the first time too. A big weekend for a growing boy!!
