Happy Holidays

So the Holidays are here and they are in full swing! We have had a very busy weekend, but it has been very enjoyable. It all started off on Wednesday November 21st when I went to my sister Heather's to make our "Mom's Apple Pies." This has become a tradition that we look forward to on every Thanksgiving. You can access the pie recipe from The Brand Family blog. This year we were joined by our sister-in-law Melissa and we made 8 apple pies!!! What a great start to Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving was wonerful as usual... More food then we could eat and the great fellowship of my family(we missed you Tim & Mary Helen). But it was a great day and we all have a lot to be Thankful for. After dinner we headed to my other Mom's house. Helen and Glenn just built a beautiful house in Bradyville, so they kept their Holiday low key because they were just exhausted. We visited for a while and Jeramy and his mom cooked up some venicean, He totally gets his cooking bug from her...

As we returned home, I could not wait to get my new Christmas tree up. I love it!!!! I spent all Friday decorating my house and my tree.

Friday night we headed to Smyrna to watch the Bulldogs beat out Wilson Central in the Semi-finals. It was an exciting game for our friend Coach Pip! We met Jill along with Kent's parents in 40 degree weather to cheer on the 2006 State Champs as they make their way to another championship! We are so proud of you Kent!!!

To wrap up the weekend, I will be heading to Brentwood to celebrate Madison's 5th Birthday!!! Madison is my best friend Kylee's oldest. She is such a creative young woman and I just can't believe how time flies! So with all of that said....this is just the beginning of a fun filled Holiday season!
