a few bits from a last weekend.
four days and nights at home filled to the brim with goodness, baking and gathering.
here's a wee look and memories to cherish!
thursday's thanksgiving at home and celebrating
jane's birthday was extra special.
even if it did end with the cowboys getting crushed
as depicted in that picture up there of mr. grumps.
a wonderful day spent baking, roasting, game playing,
lego building, puzzle solving, candle blowing and all over thanksgiving.
friday brought round two of thanksgiving day baking, brining, trimming and decorating
as we made preparations for hosting our 2nd annual defoyd/payne thanksgiving barn feast.
twinkle lights, greens and bells were this year's theme.
i then got to scoot back to new braintree for a super fun night
in my little hometown celebrating with dear friends
and surprising my brothers by crashing a hometown party
for a little game of ping-pong.
saturday brought grandma, papa, aunts, uncle, cousins and...
mr. & mrs. claus!
oh what fun we had feasting, barn dancing, name drawing, wine sipping
and topped off with a couch-side view of the town's fireworks celebration.
an awesome day!
(thanks auntie cheryl for sharing some of your photos!)
and finally sunday as a day to celebrate my mama's special birthday.
we are so thankful for her!
a wonderfully full...thankFULL weekend!
