It's been a wonderful, BUSY time around the Baxter household! Instead of trying to get all fancy with pictures and editing them and TRYING to make them look half way decent and all of that I decided it would be better to just sit down and actually blog!
Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year was really small just us and the DeCrows but we had a DELICIOUS dinner and Samantha did a beautiful job setting the table!
she even drew a picture for the girls welcoming them to dinner
Samantha had her 2nd ever piano recital. They did it at a local Seniors home here in Mesa, she played The Entertainer and Silver Bells. Because she memorized both her songs (not a requirement but we challenged her to, she got a new outfit for the occasion from head to toes)
Sometime this month, making our famous popcorn to take to the neighbors! There is a LOT of wax paper covering the counters! Fresh popped popcorn, chocolate, nuts, sprinkles, chocolate covered pretzels....Mmmmmmmmm!
Then one of my bestest friends in the whole wide world graduated from college! She has been dedicated and I ADMIRE her perseverance! I had a party for her at my home the night of her graduation to celebrate. (I only have the before pictures--I hope someone got pictures during with actual PEOPLE in them lol) I guess this will double as "Christmas decor at my House this year" too!
Somewhere in there we celebrated my mom's 60th birthday too!
Happy Birthday Mom!!!
That's all the time for catching up I have today! I sure would like to get back here with more pictures of the house all decorated for Christmas--we haven't decorated this much in YEARS and it has been so delightful!
Oh and how could I forget? Happy 3rd birthday Merrill!
