Christmas at Our House
I took this pic last weekend (above) during the beautiful little snowstorm we had. (It was the perfect time to remove the pumpkins!- ha how terrible am I?!)

I wanted to share with you a Thanksgiving Table centerpiece & Post I did last year at my mom’s house. (11/25/08!) I’d just started blogging and I had so much fun setting a pretend table.. How odd it seemed at the time but now it seems totally normal!! Just ignore the lack of silverware & […]November 20, 2009
