Weekly Words Challenge

Okay, so Tuesday is almost over. Whatever! I finally got some inspiration for this week's words. Or maybe I'm confusing that with procrastinating making dinner. Oh well, poe-tae-toe, poe-ta-toe.

Regardless the words brought to us by the newlywed Tink are Abundance & Thanks.

Remember in my last post? I mentioned something about more than one Christmas tree. Our house has been transformed into a winter wonderland over the weekend. Now we have an abundance of Christmas trees.


What's a Christmas tree forest without an abundance of forest creatures lurking about? Mooses, meeses... moose, they are everywhere! (These are in addition to those I posted previously.)


And Thanks. So many things in this one photo I give thanks for. The rotten little urchins, who are happy, healthy and able to run wild. That more than anything they would rather be out in this gorgeous weather playing than inside watching tv. Thankful that they have fun playing together. I give thanks that we live in a safe neighborhood that they are able to play outside without fear. And thankful that I am able to be home when they are so that they have plenty of time to just be kids.
The fun is over, now it's off to make dinner. Hopefully we'll all be back next week for mature & immature. Of course one of those may be hard to find around here. Three guesses, which one.

I love it! Three trees must be a pain to take down at the end of the holidays though. ;)

I am in awe. THREE trees! Wow. They are decorated so beautifully, too! But which one do you put presents underneath and which ones feel lonely?

I, too, am thankful that I can stay home with my kiddos.

My youngest son's school mascot is the moose. The entryway and school office are overrun with those wonderful creatures. Too cute!

Okay the quick story of 3 trees. I have one, and the girls have one, because I am anal about how MY tree is decorated. Their's has a bag of ornaments under it and they can decorate and redecorate it all they want! The third tree was my mom's. When they moved last year they decided it was too big for their new house, so I inherited it early. It is all white and gold religious ornaments on it.
The presents go under MY tree, which is in our front window. Mainly because the other two are tucked into corners. Although last year the pile of loot was so obnoxious that there were a couple of things under the girl's tree too!
Tink, it is a pain to take them all down, but I have things organized by box, with special ones for ornaments, so they just get tucked in, no need to wrap breakables separate or anything.
