I'm thankful for...

We truly have so much to be thankful for don't we? I was looking through all of my pictures the other day and was reminded of that. Here are just a few things that I'm thankful for.

My Creator, Savior and the Giver of Life!

My husband who keeps me grounded and laughing at all times. I don't know what I'd do without you.

Joy and laughter.

Good health (what a big one!).

Family and...

...more family.



God's grace and forgiveness.



The list could go on and on and on. I'm thankful for my readers too. I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Leighton turns 2

We celebrated my sweet niece's 2nd birthday on Saturday. It was a blast. The theme was Little Einstein's since that is her favorite show to watch. I think everyone in our family knows the theme song:) It was fun for Paul and I to see her interact with her little friends. Leighton's mommy thought of every detail for the party:

Beautiful cake,

Coloring sheet placemats,

and places for the little ones to sit during music time!

Leighton enjoyed seeing friends,

coloring and...

...dancing and singing with Mr. Nigel.

And boy did she enjoy her birthday cake!

Happy 2nd birthday sweet Leighton! Don't grow up too fast please!

eye of the tiger...

It's the eye of the tiger! Queue the music...you know you want to! :)

We headed down to see the Clemson Tigers with Ashley and Daniel (my sis and bro-in-law in case you're new here) over the weekend. I love road trips with them! On Friday night, we stayed in Greenville with our dear friends Lauren and Clark. We had such a great time eating delicious food at Smoke on the Water, laughing and spending time together and seeing Lauren and Clark's beautifully renovated home. Saturday morning came quickly. We grabbed some breakfast and coffee and headed to the game. My sister and I both went to Clemson and hadn't been back in over two years. We were both so excited to be there. The boys have grown to be fans too! I made Paul take so many pictures of me and Ashley. He's used to it though. The Tigers did win. I can't say that they played their best, but a win is a win and we'll take it! I couldn't have asked for a better weekend - gorgeous weather, great company and tailgate, and a win! Here are a few pictures from the day.

The most exciting 25 seconds in college football.

Where did fall go? It was so chilly today and I've been hearing rumors that it's going to be 28 degrees on Saturday night! WOW! We may need to wear one of these!

voting and new favorite song

I hope you all voted today! What a privilege it is. We should be one nation under GOD. I hope folks remembered that today when they voted. We serve an awesome God who is in control. This song reminds me of that. I'm just loving Yahweh by Tal and Acacia. It's my new favorite song!
