2014 Blue Jeans Week 47

So much to be thankful for!!!  We had our first snow the beginning of the week.  That was fun!  Didn't last too long when it got in the 50's, but it was fun while it lasted.  Got our 1/2 a beef for the next year--what a blessing!  Piano recital and our grateful tree round out our week.  Take a look. . .
Our first snow of the year!

Keeping warm one evening and enjoying a game.  The kids like this Q-bitz game.  

Cross Country awards banquet was this week.   The coach and the girls on the team get their awards.

Picked up our 1/2 a beef we get from a local farmer this week.  So grateful we can get that and get our freezer filled for the next year!

The snow is obviously gone and it was pretty warm out today, so I urged Ben to get our Christmas lights up when it was warm versus next week when it is supposed to be cold and rainy.  This is not one of his favorite jobs, but he does a great job, and it always looks so nice when we turn them on after Thanksgiving!  Thanks sweetie!

We continue our tradition of our Tree of Thanks this year.  Will keep adding to it this week so we get it completely full.  So much to be grateful for!!!!!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week!  Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Look at that snow! How fun especially when it's just a simple treat and not too much trouble. Love the recital pictures and how cool for Ben and Mr J to play together. I love that! Wonderful tree of thanks too. Have a great Thanksgiving holiday.

  2. I love the idea of a Tree of Thanks.
    That's neat that you have a family full of piano players.
    That's a talent that is ALWAYS needed in the church. :)
    I hope y'all have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING tomorrow! ♥ ♥ ♥
