’tis the season

tis the season

We’re kind of confusing holidays around here.

Thanksgiving is really my favorite holiday.

I love what it is about.

Being thankful.





However, there’s not much fun in the decorating.

I love to decorate for fall, but by the end of November I am ready for Christmas decor!

And, the kids get more excited about Christmas decorations and crafts than they do about turkeys.

So, a couple more days of confusing our holidays and then we will be in the full Christmas swing of things.

Of course, after we are thankful.

No matter what, we will be jolly.

home is…celebrating the season.


did i mention…?

That I LOVE football!

Mostly, teams from Colorado.

Specifically, the Denver Broncos.

Did you watch the game yesterday?!

I was jumping up and down screaming at the end.

Scared my kids.

To be honest, I was in the bathroom during the first play of overtime. I could hear the announcers on the TV through the wall and knew I was missing something big, but I heard nothing from the little guy and Ryan who were right in front of the TV.

They weren’t watching.

They were doing something on the iPad.

Are you kidding me?!

Thank goodness for our DVR!

Ryan pressed rewind and I watched it all.


You’d better believe that I have our Denver Bronco flag flying outside our house.

Here’s a little joke I read recently from friend (and fellow Bronco fan) on Facebook:

Tom Brady, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God
was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded
Patriots flag in the window. “This house is yours for eternity Tom, said
God. “This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here.” Tom felt
special, indeed, and walked up to his house.

On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the
corner. It was a huge 3-story mansion with Orange and Blue sidewalks and
drive ways, a 50 foot tall flagpole with an enormous Broncos logo flag
waving, a swimming pool in shape of a horse, a Broncos logo in every
window, and a Tim Tebow jersey on the front door.

Tom looked at God and said “God, I’m not trying to be ungrateful, but I
have a question. I was an all-pro QB, I won 3 Super Bowls, and I even
went to the Hall of Fame.”

God said “So what’s your point Tom?”

“Well, why does Tim Tebow get a better house than me?”

God chuckled, and said “Tom, that’s not Tim’s house, it’s mine.”

I’m hoping for a better turn out than our last game against New England. One thing is for sure, this team is not lacking enthusiasm…

home is…a diehard Bronco fan.

fall, football, and friends

We enjoyed a fall weekend of football and friends.

On Friday we celebrated our 11 year anniversary by taking the kids to the local high school homecoming game. We met our neighbors there and the kids had a great time!

Saturday was filled with friends at our house to watch the Oregon vs Colorado game. There was a lot more fun going on outside than football watching going on inside.

Check back this week for the 1st giveaway on my blog!

Also, I hope to update you on the changes we made to our yard now that they are final…until we add more next spring!

Stay tuned…

home is…fall, my favorite season of all.
