At our local Chick-Fil-A every Tuesday night from 5 - 6:30 is family night. What does that mean? It means you can buy an adult meal and get a kid's meal totally FREE! Oh yes. I said it....free. And in addition to that they often have a craft or activity for the kids to do. This Tuesday a lot of our neighborhood moms met up at Chick-Fil-A with the kids. We had a lot of fun! The moms got to chat and the kids talked and played. This Tuesday night the kids made these fun candy cane ornaments. It was a great activity for kids of multiple ages. I realize that by the time I post this it'll probably be a little late for you to make it to your local Chick-Fil-A (if you even have a local one). So I'm going to tell you how you can make these ornaments.

I think everyone should do this. If you go to this website (www.LetsSayThanks.com) you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets the card, but it will go to a member of the armed services.
How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one! It is FREE and it only takes a few seconds.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers need to know we are behind them. the time to send a card and please take the time to pass this email on to others so they can do the same. We can never say enough thank you's.
Thanks for taking the time to support our military!

Why have I never known about beer bread?! It is the simplest bread recipe ever!!! I love the smell of baking bread but hate the hassle. It's rainy and cold here today so I wanted to bake bread. I have no idea how I stumbled across this recipe, but it rocks!

One very special traditions in our house is finding the perfect Christmas tree. When I say perfect, I don't mean specific measurements. Just one that looks full, healthy and one the kids "approve" of. So we all get bundled up and hop in the car and drive down the street to the local Home Depot. Haha... guess it doesn't sound quite so picturesque. The important thing is that the kids are so excited to pick a tree out. And yes- I'm sure we could drive up to the mountains to cut down our own....but Home Depot happens to have really great prices :)
So first we had to pick out a tree. Which turned out not to take that long. My husband happens to have a great eye for trees. So once the kids pick one out, then we have to run it past Daddy. Which is a good thing- because once he holds them up I realize that the ones I like usually have large holes.
Then our tree gets all bundled up and attached to the top of our car. While my husband does a great job securing the tree, we wait in the car :) I'd like to say I have him trained nicely, but once he realized I was sitting in the car he made me get out and hold a string. Which seemed utterly pointless. But the tree got home safely, so I can't complain. And I must say, I think it's a great tree.

As stressful as it is to plan a "Thanksgiving" -- it is well worth it. This Thanksgiving we were so blessed to have our family and friends share it with us. I found our house filled with smiles and laughter. While we ate our delicious food we giggled at silly old stories and found ourselves doubled over in hysterics at new stories too. Friendships were born and family bonds were strengthened. We truely have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
