Home for the Holiday

Day 16: Today I am thankful for time with friends celebrating my birthday.
I know I have already talked about these two women in another post, but I am so happy to have them in my life.
They are such amazing women, and I learn so much from them.
What a blessing to have people like this for friends.
And bonus: they aren't youth group kids!!
(Though I love them too!)
We went to the cutest little restaurant called Tiny Boxwoods.
It had a nursery attached to it, and the food was DELICIOUS!!
*I am also very thankful for a safe and easy flight tonight,
though I might have been the crazy person on the plane.

Day 17: I am so thankful for the community where I grew up.
It is a difficult thing for most people to understand.
Pre-k thru 12th Grade...all in one place...with only about 250 students?
8-man football?
Graduating classes of 13??
I know, its strange, but I loved every minute of it.
One of my sister's showers was held at the school, and it was a little weird to be back there,
but it also brought back so many wonderful memories!
(Elementary building, parking lot/football field/track, cafeteria and basketball gym/middle school, and then the high school)
Day 18: I'm thankful that I was able to be at both of my sister's wedding showers this weekend.
This weekend Bailey had a shower in Kremlin, and a shower at our home church.
It was so fun to be there, and write down all the gifts, and coach her on her speech ;)
I'm so happy for her and Jon, and all the love that was shown to them.
Day 19: I am thankful for game time with my family.
Yes, it gets a little competitive.
It wouldn't be family game time without the competition.
And attitudes.
Mostly from me and Michael.
But we love it, and are looking forward to many more games this week.


  1. Love the picture of you two looking at each other and laughing at the Kremlin shower. So proud of both of my girls and the beautiful, caring young women you have become.

  2. Love this entire post! I'm pretty sure that even with the pictures, no one will understand Kremlin though! Haha

    I really like the pic of the three of us at my Garriott Rd. shower! I don't love my hair in it, but I can deal. It's cute!

    Also.. So excited for games this week/weekend!!
