The country kids have been highly unruly this week, having extra days with no school. While the oldest could care less about school, the littlest can't wait to get back to preschool. These kiddos are crazy and getting on each other's and my nerves. I am just sitting here wondering how we are going to survive the Christmas break!?!?!
We had a nice Thanksgiving this year, just us. We watched the parade on tv and stuffed ourselves to the point of exhaustion. And we still have a ton of turkey left! We even boiled down the turkey carcass to make soup stock as we don't like to waste anything.
So what made me smile this week
What?!?! This doesn't happen at your house? This is "normal" around here.
Guess she heard we might have popcorn and a movie later.......
We went to a store and there were Elves.... the kind you can take photos with!
The littlest country kid was beyond excited!
Well the snow we had the day before may not have stuck around but the cold temps sure did. Brrrrr!!!
I think Mr. Bill was debating his morning swim. Don't do it man!!!!

So much "junk" in Cinder's trunk. LOL Who doesn't love a big ol fluffy butt?!?!?!
So I had a friend overto help her set up her page and etsy shop and of course the oldest country kid HAD to let Fifi in the house. Really? Of course Fifi made herself right at home and I now owe her consulting fees (at least that's what SHE said.) She thinks she is some kind of internet guru now. Seriously, all she did was peck a key or two......
Things to do, places to go.... no time to talk..... Mr Bill is such a busy guy
Geee, I think my oven is a little uneven. I knew it was a little off but dang! *sigh*
She ain't pretty but she'll taste good all the same.
This..... I am thankful for this..... a double batch of chex mix. Not the crappy store stuff. Not made in a microwave.
No people, this is good old fashion baked chex mix. One batch for me! One batch for everyone else.
While we were watching the parade on tv, the oldest country kid was working on a drawing. When I asked him what he was drawing, he said it was a Thanksgiving picture. A little later he let me see it. Not sure if I should be concerned. LOL
Caught Baby Girl in the pool. I love how her image is reflected in the water. I love when I can slow down and just enjoy the simple beauty of life (if only for a second.)
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
