Thanksgiving Day

We ate Thanksgiving dinner at Josh's parents house. We had a great day and some really good food!
Here is Papaw showing Petey how to shoot his new Red Ryder before Thanksgiving dinner.
He was shooting at pop cans and Petey hit a can the first time he shot.

Ollie was taking pictures with my camera before dinner. He took these pictures of Van, Tatum and I. {I think Tatum and I look like a deer in headlights in that one picture.}
Van was the first one to make his plate and start eating.

After dinner, Ollie came outside and Daddy was showing Ollie how to shoot the BB gun. Ollie loved it!

Petey, after dinner, shooting some more. He would have stayed out there all day if it hadn't started pouring down rain.

proud as a peacock

peacock feathers are so beautiful with all the pretty colors.

look at all the great things I found @ ModCloth with peacock feathers!

 this scarf is my personal favorite

What do you think?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is the last day of school for everyone. 
Tomorrow we are packing our bags and dropping the doggies off at the kennel and headed east to Coshocton.

Its Thanksgiving at Josh's parents house.
Every year Josh's mom host Thanksgiving.
She does a great job.
I would say there is usually 25 to 40 people there.
I plan on eating one of these ....

I love pumpkin pie, rolls, bars....all of it!

I think Josh is even planning on hunting with his dad and brother on Thanksgiving morning.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I hope everyone has a happy, and full holiday!

I did it.

... and it was so much fun!

I made and ordered our Christmas cards from Shutterfly.
It was so easy and so much fun.
I kept adding pictures and changing things around. 
What do you think?
I love the colors.
It took awhile, because I was searching through my pictures and editing them, but making the card itself took no time at all.

I can't wait to see them!
Has anyone else ordered theirs yet?

Christmas cards

Do you send picture Christmas Cards?
Would you like 50 free cards?
 I have always sent the store bought ones.
Last year, I didn't even send out Christmas cards. ( we received so few last year)
This year, I thought that I would do something different and send some picture cards.
I have always been turned off by picture cards because it is very hard to get my family to pose for that one family picture. (none of us like it actually).

We can never take a picture where everyone is looking at the camera!
here are a couple of examples!

Here Ollie is looking down.
Here Van is covering his face.

Here, Petey is the only one looking at the camera.
 It gets very frustrating!

Now, there is so many options, I can use separate pictures for everyone!
Isn't that great?

Shutterfly also has some pretty cool party invites too!

They have cute Christmas ornaments too!
