I wasn't feeling very festive today but I put up all my Christmas decorations anyway. I thought we had a ton of decorations when we were in our small apartment but the bigger space means it doesn't look quite as festive. Oh well, at least we have room for a tree now! Anyway, it is nothing special because I wasn't in the mood to do too much and sometimes simpler is better anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving with Ty and Ann and had a good time. Then we went over to Josh's parents house for pie (his parents weren't home but everyone came over anyway. His parent went to Virginia for the holiday). The food was wonderful. I missed having the rest of my family though. Here are some pictures...
This was our glorious centerpiece. It was truly a work of art!

Ty with his masterpiece. You know what they say about birds of a feather...
It was a really good turkey though. He did a great job cooking it on the grill.

1st Annual Barlow Girls Weekend

The first annual Barlow girls weekend was a success! My sisters and Mom came down for the weekend and we spent our time being crafty (a feat for me), shopping at Last Chance, and enjoying each other. Ann got to be Angel's personal shopper and we all went home with some very welcome additions to our wardrobes. It was only a short trip but it was well worth it for all the fun we had. It was great to be together with just the girls. I am so glad we did it and I hope that it will be a long tradition!

I Love Fall!

Isn't my nephew cute! He had such fun making a big pile of leaves and jumping in. I went up to visit my family last weekend and had so much fun. The weather was beautiful and it was great to be able to spend some time at home!

I love fall.
