Giving Thanks

I am not going to lie - this year has been a crazy one..."working" from home, moving, homeschooling (we'll call it that), Annabelle's health issues....there are days i've said "WHY?" but God has placed people in my life who would look at my life and say gravy boat (Christie Cotney Magera - she's a whole blog on her own) so I have been trying to be in the moment and really try and see all of the amazing blessings I have been given and it wasn't hard this weekend...I am thankful, I am blessed and I am aware!

Seriously...could these two be ANY cuter? 
My 2 favorite faces in the world!!

 Love this girl and have loved all the extra time I've gotten to spend with her this year...
there's LOTS of bonuses to homeschool (like shopping field trips)

sweet Sam, had to take a nap for her black friday midnight shopping trip
we are so thankful for her parents, kathy and dave. who never get in pictures!


Annie wants to be a teenager so badly!
Thanksgiving dinner....
Dave, Kathy, Sam, Braxton, David, Terry, Sherry, Chris, Mary Cole, Mom, Dennis, Mike, Me and Annabelle

Then we headed to the lake for the Annual SHOWDOWN

My precious Mary Cole - the cutest little tiger!

Mike and Shane = TROUBLE!

The cutest tiger of ALL times!!

The hottest bartender around!

My girl! I love her even if she is a Carolina girl!

I think she's giving him tips on football...I've never seen anyone who knew less about football..haha

PRECIOUS!! Sam, Sophie and Annabelle!

I'm sure everyone knows that my tigers lost the game and as a result I was forced to wear a Carolina shirt
(that's our standard bet around the house) 
I obliged because we lost fair and square...there's ALWAYS next year!!

And if defeat isn't bad enough it's a horrible picture of me...well a bet's a bet!
