With a Thankful Heart

We had such a nice time this Thanksgiving. We hosted in our home, and we had Cameron's parents, brother and sister-in-law, and Cameron's aunt and uncle. My, my, my! It was a challenge with only one bathroom, but everyone made the best of it, and we had such a great time together. Also, Cameron and I made the turkey this year. Yummy. All in all, such a great holiday.

There was a lot of hanging out and talking :)

Our beautiful little Thanksgiving girl. She makes my world go round. So happy God blessed me with Madilyn Kate Smith. Each day is more lovely with her in it.

And, one more just because I'm her mommy and I can :)

What can I say? The girl loves to dress up--even on Thanksgiving :)

We also had early Christmas, as we won't be with Cameron's family this year.
Madilyn got this fancy new camera.

The whole group. Not bad, eh?

Our Thanksgiving table. We had to put the side items in the kitchen and fill our plates buffet style. I look forward to having a great big table one where all of the food can fit :)

All of our delicious desserts.

On Black Friday, we stopped by Mason Farms. They had fresh Christmas trees, Christmas cookies and hot cider, and lots of decorations. Oh my. It was just what I needed to start the Christmas season. Now, to start Christmas decorating and getting ready for our first Christmas to stay in Erie, PA. I am looking forward to celebrating with our little family and making some new traditions :)
