Best Week Ever, Too

This is the start to another fabulous weekend.  
In one weekend we'll attend formals, visit Santa, eat lunch among the trees, and celebrate the birthday of G's favorite girl.    
Can't hardly wait!

For the formal, I'll be playing the part of Cinderella.  
Let's see how many times my dress is stepped on. :-(

Whoever labeled the "terrible two's" clearly hadn't made it to 3.  

On a happy note, I made the list.  
This was G's note of Thanksgiving from preschool.

More Fun On The Tree Farm

For this year's Christmas decor, I'm really into a natural look.
I'm letting these pics be my guide.

Christmas Tree Picks

We can never predict the weather for Christmas Tree Day.  
Some years it's snowed, other years (like last year) it's been 70 degrees.  
This time, even though I checked the weather daily, we weren't prepared for temps in the 30's.  
Clod weather is fun, but not good for the patience needed in picture taking.  
We were all frozen and ready to get back in the car, so I only got a few cute shots.

And The Food

What would Thanksgiving be without my Momma's good food?

Funny how things change with a 3-year-old, 
we roasted marshmallows for our evening entertainment.  
I'm pretty sure we've never roasted marshmallows on Thanksgiving before!

Just Friday

We all know how much I love Christmas, and I've been making Christmas preparations for weeks now.  
But, I really despise all the attention that goes toward "Black Friday." 
I even dislike the name, Black Friday.  
So, I make an extra effort to avoid anything to do with it!
This year I'll be taking walking tours of my little town, eating lunch downtown, and playing in my backyard.    
No crazy shopping here!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  
Obviously, I don't have pics of ALL the things I'm thankful for, but these are two of them.

Moss Table Runner

Do you have your Thanksgiving Table set?
Yeah, me either.  
But, I did start working on this moss table runner a few weeks ago and I love the final result!  

In Progress:

The Finished Product 

Now I need to work on the rest of the table. ;-)
Have a very happy Thanksgiving!

It's There!

Hi, I'm Holly, and I'm a Christmas addict.  
Does it make it any better if I admit it?  

The Rockefeller Center tree rolled into NYC this morning and I couldn't be more excited!!!

Best Week Ever

This weekend is the beginning of Concord's best week.  
It's like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Birthday all rolled into one.  

Friday night is Concord's tree lighting.
(Ok, we probably won't have snow, but you get the picture.)

On Saturday, we will watch Concord's Christmas Parade AND 
celebrate Griffin's B-day.

Then, next week is Thanksgiving!

Big week, LOTS to do!

We enjoyed this over the weekend.  

And now, I'm happy to be back home.

Fall Foliage

Isn't this tree fantastic?
I pass it nearly every day and it needed to be documented.  

Hope you have a happy Fall weekend!

If homes have personalities, mine is in her element in this time of year.
She is a fall, our previous home was a summer.  
This is the best time of year around here and it's just getting started.  

I found my boots like this last week and thought it was such a good picture to capture this season.

Carriage Ride

On this trip, we saw a different side of Biltmore and this was our mode of transportation.  

Check out this pretty view.
