Hello friends and happy Monday! The kids and I slept in a bit today and were slow to get back into our routine. I think the past several days of late nights and bad really good eating caught up with all of us! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and start to the holiday season. We hosted Steve's family and had fantastic weather and great time just hanging out, seeing a movie, eating, and playing a little basketball. I may or may not have schooled the guys in a game of 21!  :)

This time of year also marks Kate's 5th birthday, as well as our two year anniversary of being in KC. I absolutely cannot believe that my youngest is 5! Kate continues to be sweet and sassy, a snuggler, a daddy's girl, someone who LOVES her brother, a tease, silly, a helper, funny, smart beyond her years, and someone who keeps this momma on her toes.  Cheers to a 5 wonderful years!

Her birthday celebration at preschool fell on the same day as the Thanksgiving feast, so we combined the two festivities with turkey sugar cookies!

Have you seen Frozen yet? We have. Twice. We loved it so much we saw it twice in one week and have been singing the songs for days. A must see!

We got our Christmas tree on Saturday. We always do a real tree, and the house smells of Christmas!

I have slowly started pulling out items to decorate the house and the outside lights have been hung. I have been asked to participate in a Holiday Home Tour with several other bloggers this year!  I hope you will check out all of these home tours for inspiration starting on the 16th!  My post will be up on the 19th.

I also wanted to extend a big thank you to three blogs for recently featuring a project of mine!  

Lastly, I just wanted to go over some LLL housekeeping!  I have been hearing that people have had trouble posting comments. I have looked into it and have hopefully corrected the problem. I did, however, have to disable "anonymous comments" because of all the spam.  If you are still having issues, please email me!  

Don't forget to connect with me via Pinterest, Bloglovin, Instagram, email, and FB by clicking on the icons near the top of the sidebar.  As always, I want to extend a huge thank you to all of you who stop by on a daily/weekly basis. I appreciate all the pins, comments, features, and emails. I especially appreciate all of you for keeping this a positive and fun place for me to share all of our happenings.  I hope you have been inspired somewhere along the way too!  xo
