All Should Be This THANKFUL

Our school's long-standing tradition, the Thanksgiving Feast, is being held today in the school's gymnasium. I thought I'd share how the 7th grade incorporated our theme of the year for the month of November.




In the science lab windows, the Vineyard Vines-inspired whale dons a pilgrim hat and wears feathers designed by each 7th grade student. The feathers show in words or images what each student is thankful for in their own lives.





The students also donned Thanksgiving-inspired headwear. I am always proud of the 7th graders when they act silly for me.





Wow! Now, it is almost time to design the December windows. Where has time gone?

I am hoping you and yours have a Happy Thanksgiving!

THANKFUL, y'all!

And so it begins... {Christmas 2017}

Yes! That is a real tree.
Yes! That is colored lights.


The Plant Gallery


After much discussion, J & I went with a real tree for the back den along with the old-fashioned C7 colored lights. The Plant Gallery made the entire process an easy one from start to finish. We chose our 10 ft. Frasier fir tree on Friday afternoon and was delivered by noon on Saturday morning. The delivery guys could not have been nicer and more professional.

J wanted a throwback to the "good ole" days. You will have to wait to see how it turned out, but J and I did finish the den and parlor trees yesterday. I hope to get to the rear garlands when I get home this evening.




Oh, Christmas Tree, y'all!

Happy Fall Y'all {Dining Room}

I love Fall in the dining room. Arrangements of pumpkins, antlers, acorns, and autumn leaves signal that Fall is in the air.







I am also loving the gold leafed wreath hanging in the window.












Fall in the Dining Room, y'all!
