Thanksgiving week is over, the kids are off to school, and we're gearing up for a couple of busy weeks before Christmas. Most importantly, I am alone for the first time in about 10 days. ;)

My parents visited last week, and after the year they've had, we were all just happy that they were able to make it - they've had to cancel a couple of times this year. I was also thrilled to be healthy this year as well. I've been smack dab in the middle of chemo for the previous 2 Thanksgivings so a chemo-free holiday was fabulous.

We cooked, cooked, and cooked some more. We ate, ate, and ate, We watched old home videos of Camden and Rory; we drank coffee; we watched football. I laughed until my face hurt more than once, which is a good thing in case you were wondering.

I didn't take a ton of pictures, but here are a few.






I had all kinds of fun Pinterest ideas for Thanksgiving this year, but these photo booth props are the only one that I managed to finish. And in the spirit of keeping it real, these pictures were from the day after Thanksgiving.


And an outtake from our Christmas card picture for church (with the Kivettes, our church planting partners).

Looks and sounds like a wonderful time. So glad your parents were able to be there! I love your Korean scroll over the kitchen table. Did you have it professionally framed? I still haven't had ours done, 2 1/2 years later. I need to do something with it and seeing your picture has inspired me! :)

Well you took more photos than I did :) I was just content to focus on being there instead of capturing it… unusual for me.

Oh gosh- a chemo-free Thanksgiving is one of the biggest gifts I think. So glad to hear you enjoyed it and got to spend it with family!

We must have the same pinterest board because I printed off the same props, only I never got around to using them. Love seeing how they would have turned out, which is super cute. Maybe next year.
