Thanksgiving 2016

We had a great day celebrating the turkey!!  

After lunch Layla and I had some time together on the hammock.  It was super fun and a time I'll never forget.  She's a sweetie and I'm so thankful for her and our conversations. 

Hayden was a busy boy between watching football, playing corn hole and throwing the football, but he managed to lay on the hammock with me for a bit too. {longest run on sentence ever}

I loved that we enjoyed our day in Clifton Texas.  I can't remember the last time I celebrated Thanksgiving in Clifton.  I was super young though!  I love my little hometown and I'm thankful my Aunt and Uncle still live there so I can share C-town with them!

Layla and I found this cute turkey on Pinterest.  
We totally copied the post and made our own veggie turkey!

  I'm thankful for today, but I am thankful every single day.  I want to teach my babies gratefulness.  I want them to know true joy and I think that comes from being thankful for what you have.  There is ALWAYS something to be thankful for!

look at these faces!!

These two told me how happy they are that I'm off work this week.  
They rewarded me by letting me take their picture!  Goodness they are sweeties!

my first break as a working mom

We have a week long break from school for Thanksgiving!  

I'm so excited to do nothing.  

One of my coworkers asked me what I was going to do and I said, "I'm doing nothing!"

I'll be hanging with the pups and kids.  I'll be watching football.  I'll be baking pies.  I'm planning to make a cute veggie turkey to take to my hometown on Thursday.  I'm shopping for black flat shoes and work pants. I'm returning a few things to a few stores. I'm reading books and drinking quiet cups of coffee. I'm going to spend my time catching up and relaxing. I'm going to do a few things that I just haven't had time to do.  I'll be a great week.

I'm excited to be with my people and pets and enjoy every single second!

I am blessed!
