This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

My Turkey Dinner

Yesterday at 5pm I hosted an early Thanksgiving dinner for my dad and my inlaws to join us in. I always do one of our own, and then we travel to my mom's for her dinner with the rest of my family.

I cooked the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes/gravy, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, cheesy cornbread, deviled eggs, and a pumpkin cheesecake. My MIL brought rolls and a cherry cheesecake, my dad brought Italian mac and cheese, and his girlfriend Virginia brought cherry pie! It was a feast and we were all stuffed afterward!

Here is little B eating an extra hard boiled egg...

It was finally cold yesterday so we decided to build our first fire of the season for everyone to enjoy!! It was lovely to sit by.

^Nick's best friend Terry also joined us in the festivities!

We all had a great time and after everyone left I hurriedly got the kitchen cleaned so that I could relax and digest!! My mom's dinner is Thursday at noon, then that evening we are driving down to see the inlaws and have dinner with them.

I have been working on some crafts lately that I will be posting about soon. I finished the advent calendar! It turned out marvelous and as soon as I get the rest of the Christmas decorations on the wall I will take a pic.



  1. Your dinner looks YUMMY!!! & I can't wait to see the advent calendar! It was adorable when I saw it last, and it wasn't finished yet! I'm proud of you for creating what you dreamed of making!!

  2. PS Sweet Pea, I have given you a blog award!
