Weekly Recap (Instagram Style)


The mister turned another year older.  Cookie dough cupcakes make the perfect birthday treat.....



We had a little Thanksgiving fun at school.  The kiddos loved making (and eating) these Oreo turkeys.......



This face.......



I'm pretty sure every leaf in the neighborhood is in our backyard............



I hosted my first ever Thanksgiving yesterday.  I even got crafty and made a floral arrangement using berries from a bush in my yard.........



And I lived to see another day.

In fact, the house is so clean, that I've decided hosting gatherings is a good thing!

I mean, I dusted.  And that just does not happen.

Unless I let people into my home.

This could be the start of something new.
