I love my big crazy family and especially the hot guy I get to do this life with!

The day before Thanksgiving I was on the verge of tears all day.  I was missing my sisters, parents and 28 nieces and nephews.  Thanksgiving is really our only holiday we see each other.  We chose to stay home this year for many reasons but it was not sitting well with me.

I went to bed dreading waking up to Thanksgiving - really dreading it.

We all got up and I was feeding Daniel and hubby could tell I was not feeling the cookinthekitchenandserveeveryoneallday thing.

So we didn't.

He said let's go Christmas Tree hunting and decorate for Christmas!!

The day had been redeemed!

Today?  Today we shall eat turkey!  Happy Day Late Thanksgiving!!


  1. We missed you and Justin and the kids as well!!! Glad the day was redeemed. We are also having turkey feast today...yesterday was prime rib..compliments of Chaney and is turkey, and tomorrow its ham...we are feasting like is a good time with a big missing piece without your family and Tawnya's family, and Meme and Papa.

  2. Awesome! Shoot, we should have left that extra pizza with you guys so you wouldn't have to cook after the tree hunt! Thank God for discerning and FUN hubbies. Great post. Thankyou for sharing it.

    Love you!

  3. Good for you guys, Shauna. Looks like you had fun getting your tree. We got our's yesterday, which is rare to get it this early, but it helps get into Christmas mode, don't you think? I miss you guys. Hope to see you at some point soon.

  4. Sounds like it turned out be a most wonderful day! Love the happy pictures!
