H54F || Twas the Week Before Thanksgiving...

This week was a kick tushy kinda week for me.  I worked my job in the preschools in addition to covering for our nursing home while their speech therapist was on vacation.  It wasn't nearly as tough as I had prepared for it to be..but all the same, it was very different & I'll be glad to get back in the swing of my typical schedule this upcoming week!  Plus, it doesn't hurt I only work t w o days this week:)  Woot!  I love my job.  Spirits are high over here.  They finally got a hold on the wildfires & smoke for now (isn't that something to be thankful for!) & my hubby is coming home soon.  I guess you could say we have a lot to be thankful for around here<3  God is SO worthy of our praise.

one.  conley's first ride & christmas at dollywood
It was a chilly day-perfect time to get out of the smoke & see the lights at Dollywood while catching our first glimpse of the man in red!   Conley rode his first ride, too!  (Besides the carousel).  It was adorable & completely hilarious:P

two.  christmas cards...check!  

I'm on the ball this year, y'all.
I can't wait to see the sparkle in person...they sent me an example in the mail -& SOLD! :)
& maybe I'm crazy-but aside from receiving everyone else's of my favorite things is packaging our own & sending them out<3  Stuffing envelopes...washi tape...stamping away.  So excited!  

except ours says "merry christmas"...I have a thing about that!

three.  elf planning
anybody else pumped this year?  I've had my plans laid out for about a month;)  Now, if I'll quit changing my mind!  Have you guys seen where you can buy props & kits to help a momma out?  I swear, I have quit looking at all the stuff-I want to do it ALL.  And that just ain't budget friendly...there's just no way to justify spending $15 on an elf sized hot cocoa mug...or is there??
one || two || three

four.  these shirts, though...

Some handsome brothers are gonna be filling them out soon:)

five.  cam's festive school crafts

I mean, have you ever seen anything cuter in your entire life???  Both the hat & boy;)

We are (Lord willing) less than t w o weeks away from something very exciting.  We've been working at this task for the entire year.  I hope I have some fun news to share soon:)

That being said, I can't believe we are discussing T H A N K S G I V I N G guys.  But I have to say, I am very excited.  I absolutely adore this time of year & dream about it all year long.  Hope you all have a beautiful weekend preparing for the fun week ahead!
