We had our first snow this week!  The forecast was 4 – 6 inches, but we only ended up with a couple that stuck.  My kids were thrilled however, and want to put up the Christmas tree, like, NOW!  As I type, we have a fire going in the fireplace, and with the snow outside, however sparse, it feels so cozy.  I love to savor moments like this.

For the first time in years and years, we are having a small Thanksgiving celebration at home, and I’m looking forward it.  I always love when my hubby has off work.  🙂

I hope you have a wonderful week and a special Thanksgiving Day.
