H54F|| My Not So Black Friday

 Happy Black Friday, everyone!  For the first time in about 6 years, I am home missing all the Black Friday frenzy.  I enjoy the thrill don't get me wrong, but this season of life is so sweet-- that I'd miss it to stay home snuggling with babies any ole' day of the week.  Once again, joining Caitlin at Coffee with CaitlinDella at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and Tiff at Bright on a Budget for H54F:)

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  I have so many reasons to be thankful. It seems every year I have more & more reasons to thank my Father above for his goodness, mercy & grace so evident in my life everyday!  

A recap of this week's highlights:
Conley's First Thanksgiving: We had a wonderful day filled with delicious food, loving family, & great "nerf gun fights."  We kept with tradition & woke up to breakfast in front of the tv watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.  As always, it's not Santa we wait's Snoopy!  And I have to snap a pic when we finally spot him:)  Then we headed out to two of our families gatherings.  If only I had my son's, don't eat.  Give me all the carbs with a side of key lime pie.And I was just reminded how hard holidays are with babies!  This mommy is stiiiillll drag gin'!  The only thing that would have made it better is if we could have spent it with Cade.  We miss him so much.  PS Can you believe I didn't get a Thanksgiving picture of Cam  & Conley other than this?:/  I hate when I'm too busy to do important things...grrrrr.
2.  Mommy Bible Study: It's like God knew exactly what I needed.  Wait, of course he did!  When I met an old girlfriend at the playground a couple weeks ago, I didn't expect her to bring up an opportunity to meet weekly for a bible study-but she did.  And I'm so glad God laid it on her heart to do so!  After spending weeks on bed rest & several more in Knoxville out of church, this girl is feeling spiritually dry.  I'm excited for the fellowship & a chance to grow in Christ with my sisters:)  And can't forget baby snuggles <me + 3 very preggo mommies with future babies to snug> +playdates for our toddler babes!
3.  Peaches & Pearls 3rd annual Christmas Instagram Photo Challenge: this has become a tradition I find myself looking forward to more & more each year.  I love looking back each year at the memories I have captured.  It's especially fun to share the experience with others...I love searching our hashtag to see what everyone did for that particular day's topic.   Wanna join this year?  I'll be sharing this picture on November 30th on Instagram.  Share a picture representing the topic of the day with the topic hashtag along with #peachesandpearlscmasphotochallenge every day in December leading up to Christmas!  Hope to see you there!
4. Lighten Up:  Again, I can't express how fun this was.  I hope we can make it back next year & actually sit in HoHo's lap!  To see more about this event, scroll on down to the previous post.
5.  Hospital Pictures are Ready!  We have the sweetest friend (more like family) that works in Dr.B's office.  She takes the most beautiful photos EVER.  She offered to take some of Cam meeting Conley for the first time & they couldn't be more beautiful.  I am in love.  She captured the moments perfectly & I am so thankful for the memories!  More to come later... but this is my favorite:}
Much love to you & yours this Thanksgiving week!
