Thanksgiving in Wyoming!

We had the best time!!! It was super cold but the fam made it through just fine! The kids had so much fun in the snow and we saw lots of wildlife, including moose!! These pics aren't in order but I'm tired and don't feel like fixing it! ha! Hope all of you had wonderful Thanksgivings :)

Miss them already but will be going home in a few weeks for Christmas, so that makes it much easier :)


The Christmas Decor!!!

So here it is!! I finally got everything where I want it!! Although I did get two poinsettias yesterday and I'm not sure where I'm going to put them..but I will figure it out!! :) I'm not in love with the way my Christmas light wreath turned out, so I will probably do some tweaking to it too!!

ewww look at that glass ring!! Somebody is getting in trouble!

Those are real little trees! Aren't they cute?!?! :)

Love this!! Found it at Hallmark!!

This needs some work!

These are the "western" decorations in the dining room! I can't have pink and green everywhere! ...or can I?!?!?

My fabulous Willow Tree Nativity!!

This is where I will hang all the Christmas cards we receive...well, only the cute ones! ha!

Now I just need to get my house clean in time for my family to arrive!! They are getting here Sunday night, then we are leaving early Monday morning heading to Deadwood, SD....we are planning to go through the Badlands National Park, and stop at Wall Drug and Mt. Rushmore along the way. On Tuesday we will leave Deadwood and head to Dubois, WY, stopping by Thermopolis to go to some Dinosaur museum the kids are dying to see! On Wednesday we will do the Big Horn Sheep Tour in Dubois (if you remember, My Daddy I did this same trip last November, soo fun!) then head to Jackson Hole, where we will be until Friday!! Soooo excited!! Crossing my fingers for lots of moose sightings!

I have soo much to do before then! My friend Kati just got back from Russia so we are going to get pedicures this afternoon to catch up!! Then we are meeting up with some more of our friends for Mexican!! Don't you just adore Mexican food!?!?! :) Then tomorrow the Farmer and I are going on our Holiday Date (another new tradition) ...we are going shopping, out to eat, catching a movie, then looking at Christmas lights!! I am sooo excited!! :)

Probably wont be blogging much this week but expect a full recap of the westward adventure once I return :)
