Family Times and Blog Happenings!
The holiday season is upon us and so is the crazy business of the season. I am so grateful that we will have this weekly hop to help ground us as we approach the holy season of honoring the birth of Christ.
I have a lot to be thankful for this week.
First, we enjoyed Thanksgiving with my sister-in-laws family. I did not have to cook. We went to a local fancy restuarant that is situated in an old house. It was really a pretty place to share Thanksgiving.
I celebrated my mother’s birthday today. We went to a local restuarant too. She has been ill though so I didn’t get to take pictures. She didn’t feel well enough. We still had fun though.
Another great event for the week was receiving this:
No Shave November Ending
My husband ended November, shaving. He went all November without shaving as part of his participation in the No Shave November Cancer Awareness project. He looked so handsome throughout the month. I am so proud of him.
Major Giveaways To Be Thankful For!
I have a lot of giveaways this coming week on my blog. First, I am sponsoring a giveaway to kick off Book Musing Mondays. The giveaway starts Sunday night at 6 p.m. and will run through December 14 until 1 a.m. I am working with my co-host, Ashley Hales, and two other book review blogger to promote the hop and giveaway. Check back. We are giving away some great books. What do you think of the Book Musing Mondays button? The sweet cat belongs to my sister who took this picture for my old blog header: Mary-andering Among the Pages.
Here is the picture of me and my co-host:
