Thanksgiving 2011

Our Thanksgiving was spent in Willow Lake, South Dakota this year. Jace’s grandmother (Vesta) wanted to have everyone over at her house so she could enjoy having family all around her. This we are sure, will be her last Thanksgiving, as she is very sick. It was very sad knowing…

A new thrift store find! I don’t always buy holiday decor (other than Christmas) at retail, so I was happy to find this cute little Easter sign at a local thrift store for $1.99. Isn’t it cute? It was found when I found my baskets, I just now got around…
