We're BAAaack!

We had an amazing time with family and friends in Ohio/Kentucky celebrating "Thanksmas" (we're not going home for Christmas this year so we combined the holidays.) You just can't beat holidays in the country with people you love but don't get to see often enough.

"My (actually my grandparents') Old Kentucky Home..."




Sporting my nearly 6 months pregnant belly.


My sister trying out new recipes for the Thanksgiving feast!


Storytime with great-grandpa.


Sigh..I miss family.

"Across The River In Ohio..."


Our recycled Christmas wrapping-- sewn Whole Food bags and old wallpaper samples found in my grandpa's garage


More family (and a new haircut: )


And, just like the Pilgrims probably did on their first Thanksmas, we celebrated with the traditional Sock Monkey Making Party. Some dollar store socks, needle & thread, and a good ole' American sock monkey spirit is all you need to incorporate this tradition into your family celebrations.



Great family, great food, great fun...couldn't ask for anything more : )
