We Are Home.

Hi Friends ... we are home.
Can you tell we were away?

Our little family packed the car and drove 850+ miles south to spend some time with our family and friends. We just got home a few hours ago ... that was another 850+ miles north, mind you. The car is unpacked, stuff put away, clothes are in the washing machine, fireplace is lit, and lunch has been eaten.

Now it's time to take a much needed rest.

I have so many wonderful things to share with my blog readers ... and honestly, I can't wait to do so. But right now, I just wanted to say a very quick hello and go snuggle on the couch with my two guys and rest for a bit ...

In the meantime ... I thought I would share these two pictures that I took in early November. The Salvation Army Bell Ringers were out a little earlier than normal this year.


This amazing woman was the official bell ringer at our local Walmart. She was a wonderful singer and she played her instrument. We were so lucky to be able to experience her gift.


Each time Griffin sees a red bucket, he asks for my change. He also does it at McDonald's for the Ronald McDonald House and at the grocery store where they collect money to help feed the hungry. I think I have a very sweet, wonderfully charitable little guy on my hands.

I can't wait to share pictures of our family & friends, meeting blogging friends and Sea World. Honestly, I probably have about 500 Sea World pictures ... I guess I'll have to choose which of those to share.

Hope you have a great Sunday!
