Holiday Magic

This picture was taken just outside Dixie's window as we gathered our Funky Junk Families to enjoy a Thanksgiving Feast together. FJS#4 brother in law made the most FAB BBQd turkey (my hubby claimed it was the best he ever had), FJS#1 made the best jalapeno deviled egg poppers, and Dixie tried Martha's pumpkin cheesecake recipe (my fave). All were gobbled up quickly. We invited new members (fiance's) to our clan and possibly scared her away forever, just kiddin! She'll just have to learn to hold her own in this crazy wonderful crowd!!! Yes we all drove through a snow storm to get there, but that made the meal even more worth it.
We all make our own holiday magic through the way we celebrate and the traditions that we continue. Trimming the tree, glorious food and music fill us with joy. When all is said and done, it's the family time spent together that creates the holiday magic.
That is what we have been doing this past week...experiencing our families and celebrating the season! Hope you all had a magical time with your families too.
Remember December 1st we start our 12 Days of Giveaways, ya'll won't want to miss it! It will be your chance to win wonderful prizes,
just in time for gift giving.

  2. That picture is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen and makes me know how much I miss being on a farm where there is land! Hills and trees and that gorgeous barn! I've never owned a farm but used to spend a lot of time during the summers with my aunt and uncle who did. I have always been a "don't fence me in" kinda gal and that picture just speaks to my heart. That, along with your wonderful words of sentiment and love about what makes a holiday special. Thank you for adding something so special to a day that really needed it! Love ya! ~Leena~

  3. Your family sounds wonderful. Happy Holidays! La
