We hope you had as wonderful of a Thanksgiving holiday as we did this year. We are so blessed to be surrounded by such an abundance of loving and supportive family, and also friends. And we were fortunate enough this year to spend a little time with so many of them!
We had a lovely meal with the Ritchie family yesterday, hosted by my fabulous in-laws Bill & Betty. I really hit the jackpot when it comes to finding a man to spend the rest of my days with, and on top of that becoming part of such a gracious and loving family to boot! That probably sounds extremely cliche, but it’s all true. Jay and Rachel came from Georgia and it was so good to see them again. Jay has the best sense of humor and it’s fun to see him tease everyone, he reminds me very much of my Grandpa Brooks who I lost in 1999. He also had a great sense of humor and a heart of gold. The food was fantastic, and I made my Aunt Sherrie’s crab/shrimp salad for the first time. I ate way too much of it, it was just too good not to. It’s a really simple recipe, I’ll share it on here if you’d like, just leave me a comment!
Enjoy these family pictures, I didn’t really capture any candids, but it was great to get a group shot of all the families.
Happy Birthday Gracie!!
Have a wonderful weekend! We plan to finish the painting in the nursery and do some projects in the craft room. I have a craft fair coming up in a few weeks at work that I need to get some things made for. I have a few patterns to make some fabric baby shoes, and I am also crocheting some booties as well. We’ll see how productive I get… so far I haven’t done any more than this blog post!
