I'm surprised I even remembered my password to log onto my blog. I'm sure this post will be all over the page since I haven't written in a while. Here we go!

If you are reading this, thank you for not giving up on me! Its been awhile. And its not because I have nothing to say or nothing going on. It's quite the opposite.

I'm so behind on journaling our lives, I'm just going to start with Thanksgiving. I'm just now realizing that I didn't even post pictures of the girls on Halloween. We do go out and get free candy door to door. I just forgot to post pictures of them.

Okay, so onto to Thanksgiving so I can start writing about Christmas stuff once I get this post out of the way.

We had an incredible Thanksgiving.......and I didn't even take a single picture. I think it was probably because we had 50 people out at our farm for Thanksgiving. I was a little busy:). Everyone was so wonderful. They brought all kinds of food and we most definitely had plenty to eat.

Thanksgiving was a mixture of families and friends. Nothing, and I mean nothing, thrills me more to have a house full of people. I'm all about it.

Here is something that I HAVE to get better about. I'm not doing much photography professionally anymore with all sorts of stuff going on in our lives. But, I must get better at capturing my family, holidays, and just life really. I was at one point doing great, but something happened. I'm not quite sure.

Kaylyn had a school Thanksgiving feast. I did manage to get photos of that whole shin-dig. They got to feast on all sorts of snacks. I don't know the rules of posting non-related or friend's children without parent's permission and such, so I'm just going to stick with putting pictures up of my kiddo. So, imagine this giant feasting table filled with about 24 pre-K kiddos.

Turkey treats I made. There is in fact peanut butter in the middle of these! Yummy!

My precious pilgrim. Here is something you should about my daughter really quick. She UN-FIXES her hair at school now. We fix her hair so cute in the morning before school and the next time I see her, we've got hair all over the place. I've yet to understand this but it must stop! I like my girls to have their hair did......that's right, hair did.

As for my pregnancy, things are going amazing! I am feeling wonderful as of this week. I'm beginning my second trimester so that must have something to do with it. There will be a belly shot soon! I'm most definitely certain its not a pot belly. We find out on January 19th what the Lord is blessing us with. I must find out!

Farm life is super busy right now. We are in full-swing. Our farm now offers a complete variety of products- pork, chicken, beef, and eggs. That has helped business pick up tremendously. We feel so blessed that the Lord is showing favor to this farm. He is bringing people to the farm and to our delivery groups all around Houston. We have one delivery a week in various parts of Houston.

Okay, I'm going to stop here for now. But, there will be a new post soon!

Haha! Thanks for updating us...although I do feel like I have had a little insight into your life since the last post since we saw y'all Thanksgiving! Thanks again for hosting us, it was amazing! I love reading your blog, and gain a lot from your experiences and tips. (btw, my sis is preggo again, and I was telling her about the peppermint oil on the tongue to help with morning much/how often do you do that?)

Oh she is so precious!!! Love the hair - must be a girl thing as Jessie is the same way. Glad to hear you are feeling good!

Don't obsess about the hair, wait till she starts changing clothes at school! It must be your hormones .. 50 people ... Wow! Bet it was a wonderful day ... what a wonderful blessing for everyone to have you in their lives and the ability to all get together at your home.
Now back on an earlier post ... you said Lays S&O chips are the best and I've really had that on my mind ... next time you're at Sam's or HEB, pick up a bag of Jensen's Orchard All Natural Veggie Chips - ... did you get the "all natural" miss farm lady ... they are really good and some of us have even managed to make ourselves believe they might be good for us... so please don't say it isn't so.

It's nice to have you back, Lyns! I know how life can get...

Sometimes I wish that I could experience holidays or occasions from somewhere other than behind my camera, but I'm addicted. :)

That school Thanksgiving feast looks like it was a blast!

Very cute turkey snacks! Mia had a pilgrim hat and collar too and I loved it. I remember that being my favorite time of year. They didn't do a "leather" vest made out of a paper grocery bag though :(

I saw another kitchen for $119 at Toys-r-us and it is just as cute as the $150+ should check on-line. I saw it in person...CUTE. Also, check craigs list, in this area they are listing the kitchens like crazy BUT you have to be on your computer at just the right time or they go super fast. Good luck!
