Home for the Holidays

Mom comes in my bedroom, as I am searching for my cellphone that is continually beeping yet no where to be found, and announces that she needs Casie and I for a meeting. She states that we need hamburger buns for dinner and then pulls out a coin.

Megan: "O gosh. This involves leaving the house."
Mom: "We're gonna flip to see who has to go to the store and get them."

The saying "Home for the Holidays" is apparently a literal term for this household.

Picnik Pictures

Emily, Chatting at the Sky, shared a link with us on her blog the other day. Picnik is a website where you can upload photos and edit them. There are all kinds of crazy things you can do to make your photos unique, fun, sharp, etc. I just haven't spent enough time on there yet to figure out how to work everything.

I did upload this incredibly odd colored photo of my family on Thanksgiving to see if I could somehow make it look like we weren't all ill. Here's how it turned out....

Did I mention it was free?
So go! Create an account. Mess with some photos. Get your creative juices flowin'. And then be sure to show me what you did!
(I'm off to try and make my mom's shirt not so NEON.)

Thank You, God, for friends

Today some very dear friends made a special little trip to see us for a few hours. Chris and Tori were college students who attended the church we grew up in. Brandon, Casie, and I were in Elementary and Middle school during that time, but they still hold a special place in our hearts. Casie and I were even flower girls in their wedding!

Those were the good days! I have so many sweet, fun memories from those 3 short years that sometimes I wish I could venture back into those moments.

Lilly and I seemed to click right off the bat; I think it's that Kindergarten bond! :) haha!!!

Time has flown so quickly - they now have four precious children of their own who are the ages that Brandon, Casie and I were when they were attending college. How crazy is that?

Lord, thank You for Chris and Tori! Thank You for a spur of the moment visit with them this afternoon. They do hold a very special place in our hearts! We love You, and praise You for the simple gift of friends.

It's not too early for Christmas decorations is it?

Found these cute lil' towels that "match" my bathroom to spice things up a bit.

And some brown ornaments on top of my towel rack.

Simple things here and there to bring in the season.

Burn Baby Burn

Me: My heart hurts.
Mom: It's probably heart burn. Take a drink real fast.
I proceed to sip my DrPepper real fast like I was told.
Mom: That should make you burp and get rid of the heart burn.
Me: All that did was give me freezer burn.
Mom bursts into uncontrollable laughter...
Me: I mean a brain freeze. I knew it had an f and a b in it.

Can I get that for you?

This is what happens when you lose your keys.... and then find them in the bottom of your purse a few days later. Don't ask.

Falling Acorns

Do you have a favorite season?

When asked this question I usually automatically blurt out summer. You know, because of the sun, tan, water, boat rides, relaxing, camping, etc.. But then as the other seasons roll around I remember how much I enjoy those as well! The change is so refreshing!

There are different things that trigger my memory for each season. For example, hot chocolate, big puffy coats, and trips to Mississippi automatically remind of me winter.

Yesterday as I was getting ready for work I heard a loud thud followed by a faded trickle as it rolled off the roof above. Ahh.... Fall - The sound of acorns hitting the roof. Something about it is so peaceful to me and it only happens during this season.

Take a moment to think. Is there something that happens during this season that makes you think Fall? Something about nature. Something you do as a family. Some event that happens around this time each year. Or something simple and random like falling acorns on the roof.

What is Fall to you?
