It's beginning to look alot like Christmas...

I crazy glued my fingers together trying to fix an ornament that broke. Nail Polish Remover to the rescue! There goes my manicure! If you look in the left hand corner of the picture you will notice my little buddy is making sure I am ok. :)
Luciano is decorating our kitchen with lights! He is so funny!!

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend! We enjoyed some great food and we even unpacked all of our Christmas stuff and put it up! We did a bit of shopping and had a great dinner with friends at Cheescake Factory on Friday! Now onto the finishing touches of our Christmas Cards!

Edible Arrangements

So my husband surprised me on saturday with a bouquet of fruit! Strawberries, Pineapple and Grapes! My favorite was the pineapple because they were cut in the shape of a heart! So tasty! What a great guy!

Time to snuggle up with a good book....

So my husband and I are reading a book together called 'every man's marriage'. My husband works hard at everything he does. He is the best husband, friend, son, financial advisor, etc. that he can be. He continues to improve himself in all of these areas daily. We were reading one section of the book and I thought I would share the insights I have received as well. "Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers" (1 Peter 3:7) I always had a problem with the scripture because every woman I know is far from weak. We continued reading and the author went on to describe this verse further. The Greek term for "weaker partner" can also be translated "fine china", which I think is a better translation within this discussion of marriage. How do you handle fine china? With respect, as you tenderly appreciate and even display its finest points. You don't slam fine china around or put it through the blast of the diswasher. Each woman is a piece of God's finest china, lovely in His sight. Since we are God's finest china let us respond with femininity and Godly character to those around us. For a practical application go enjoy some tea in a fine china tea cup!

Fall is Finally Here!!...we only had to go to Julian to find it!

The fog was rolling in and it was a frigid 65 degrees. The sun was not shining so it was chilly.

On the way home the sun started to come out

Jack & Luciano warming up in the car! Jack was so cold he was shivering

One of our favorite bakeries in is in the background

Jack was so sleepy on the way home.

We had a fun time and now have apple pie, apple cider, caramel apples with just caramel and with nuts, cookies made with cinnamon and pie crust, and of course we couldn't leace Julian without picking up some apple butter. I think we are all stocked up on apple treats for quite awhile!
