I feel like Christmas just starts a bit early every year. The radio stations are already playing Christmas songs and Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet. Everyone is decorating their homes early....as soon as the first day of November trees and decorations went up! I'm a sucker for all things Christmas so I enjoy the warmth and comfort this time of year brings. No complaints!
It'll be just the four of us this Thanksgiving, a choice we made because although this time of year is wonderful, it's also heartbreaking for us not to be able to share it with the one person that also made it special, my brother. It might be different next year, but now, we are just grateful for each other and the time we have together. Hopefully, we'll set up a small little tree and decorate it next weekend. The kiddos love their tree so that was definitely a must!
Here are this weeks:
- The pic above is of my first essential oils from Young Living . I thought over and over about this because these are not cheap at all, well at least for us anyway. We knew the benefits and it is so worth the investment. Next up, is the starter kit. If you'd like to try them you can reach Cynthia over at Oil Crude for any questions or if you'd like to order.
-I'm not cooking Thanksgiving this year but there is no way I am not making this amazing looking Pumpkin Sheet Cake from the Pioneer Woman.
-Great deals an all things Lego Minecraft on Amazon.
-I can't wait to try this for Jonathan and Sarah....especially around this time of year, when they get sick more- The Anti-Flu super Smoothie for Kids .
- This free printable from Sweet Metel Moments is a simple but very sweet way to give thanks to the kids wonderful teachers.
- My all time favorite Disney movie and princess has always been Cinderella. I'd watch it over and over and over again (much like Sarah watches Frozen now...it's a cycle) . I always felt I could relate to her. Looking back now I realize my life was not even close to that but it's great to feel connected to something. I am beyond excited about the release of the live action version of it.
- Music is a huge part of my life....it's everything. The power it has...you can relate to a song and feel a whole lot of emotions. Music brings people together. It can also be the thing that gets you through the toughest times in your life. I will be sharing our favorite songs (every week on these posts). We listen to almost all kinds of music here! Please do share with me your favorite artists and why you love them!(no judgements.ha!)
I hope everyone has a wonderful thanksgiving!!
