Family Update.

I've been so busy visiting with family & friends the past several weeks I have not had time to post much on facebook, instagram or blogger...but things have slowed down for a bit ... until Christmas of course :) though I cannot wait.

The only thing that I didn't get sorted out was getting our tree & decorations out of storage.  I guess we'll work on that Monday when the boys get home from school.

Olivia is with us a bit longer this week, she didn't go home per usual because her baby brother is sick.  When I read the text from BM asking if she could say Olivia blurts out "Oh, I sure can!" with glee and happiness & literally SKIPPED to her bedroom.  It warms my heart to know that she enjoys her time with us......we do love her so!

We spent Thanksgiving Day with Billy's family at his sister & BIL's hunting camp in Mayo.  It was pretty nice, had AC, a bathroom, running water & a big screen TV...much nicer then how we used to live at hunting camps when I was younger.....no power, fires to cook our food, no running water or toilets...yeah that was really "roughing" it.......

The food was great, the company was even better.  The kids had a great time, though we really missed Weston.  He went to Myrtle Beach with his dad, step mom & step sister for Thanksgiving.... :(

After we left Billy's family - we drove over to my father & step moms home & enjoyed a few bites of food and chatting before we finally retired to our own home - full, tired & ready for bed!

The Saturday after Thanksgiving, we got together with my brother Matthew and his children and my mom & step dad.  We fried a turkey, cooked up way to much food & had a few beers...while we relaxed and let the kids run wild & free playing and having fun.

I had TWO (count them TWO) photo sessions...which I plan to edit quickly because I'll be shooting a 6 hour wedding Saturday!  And then, that's it - I am done for the holiday season until next year ;)

xoxo, Lela
