CHRISTMAS 2020 - PART 1 was everyone's Christmas?! I hope it was as wonderful as it could be for 2020. I sure am looking forward to the day when "mask", "Covid" and "social distance" are no longer terms we hear 100 times a day. I am praying for a better, brighter, and safer world for 2021 as I'm sure you all are. 

We typically have a big ole family gathering a few days before or after Christmas back in Texarkana, TX (my hometown) with my grandfather and allllll the cousins, second cousins, third cousins, aunts, uncles, and whoever else I missed. This year, we canceled that because of Covid so instead, we decided to do something fun locally that we've never done before.

So here's Part 1 of our Christmas week! I'll recap our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in the next post. :)

Can you even believe the year we've had? It's like a slow-moving nightmare that none of us can wake up from, right? I know we are all hoping that 2021 brings us some much-needed peace, hope, and joy and I, for one, plan on embracing those three things now instead of waiting for the new year. 

Want to know what brings me JOY during the holidays??

Welcome back, friends, and happy Friday!! We are at t-minus 2 WEEKS from Christmas and I need December to slllooowww down just a bit. I want 2020 to be over with just as much as the next guy but I LOVE December! And it's just flying by right before my eyes. I feel like I haven't really stopped to enjoy any of it yet so we are going to use this weekend to fix that! 

For one, I still need to put the final touches on my dang Christmas decorations! I still haven't hung garland on my stairs with all the pretty lights yet and I don't know why but it's always my least favorite task. (Other than fluffing the tree. Now THAT is my least favorite Christmas task for sure.)  

I'm hoping this weekend can be filled with Christmas lights, Christmas movies, Christmas music, wrapping presents, drinking hot chocolate...all the good stuff. #gimmethatmagic

 Hello, sweet friends!! Happy Friday! So happy to have you here. So happy to see Friday. So happy it's DECEMBER and I can share all my Christmas pictures without the fear of judgment. 😂

Of course, today is Friday Favorites Day so, as always, I'm linking up with my sweet friends, Erika and Andrea, plus a few others I'll link at the bottom. 

So let's get to those...

That has made me laugh all week. 😂

Let's all pray real hard that we turn the corner toward normalcy in 2021.


Anyway, today I wanted to share just some of our Thanksgiving pics and other bits of life lately. Like many of you, we had a slightly edited version of our typical Thanksgiving tradition. My parents, brother and granddad usually drive in from Texarkana (about 2.5 hours away) for the day to celebrate with us, Craig's parents, Craig's brother and their 2 girls. (who all stay for several days). But this year it was just Craig's side of the family as mine side is a little more high risk with certain health conditions so boo. 2020 strikes again. But we made the best of it with our smaller celebration and most importantly, the boys got to see their cousins and they LOOOOVVVEEE their cousins!! Scarlet is the middle child between Matthew and Mason so it's a perfect little group. And this year, sweet Sailor is 6 and she feels like she's finally "a cousin" too. 😂
