Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, it is a day late, but it has been busy around our house.  On Wednesday, we put up our Christmas tree.  Jordan will be busy with work and school, but wanted to get the tree up while she had some time off.  So, we did a little decorating for half of Wednesday.

Mike's mom bought us this sweet Christmas ornament in 2006, right after we returned home from China with Eva..

Then, in 2007 after returning home with Joy, she purchased this one (get it?  "Joy"ful journey?)...

I love putting these ornaments on the tree every year.  They are very special to me.  Jack actually broke the first one in 2006, which my mother-in-law replaced.

Here is another special one that we all look forward to hanging on the tree.  Ivy thought it was Seth, but it is Mike in 1975...

In between the decorating, we did some cooking and baking.  Jordan was a big help, and I really enjoy being with her.  She usually does all the Christmas cookies for me.

Jordan made this turkey in 1998.  I always forget to put it out.  This year I managed to fill it with Hershey Kisses, which lasted half a day.

Then yesterday, Jordan asked me to go into the living room.  She had a Christmas present for me.  She told me that I needed to open it now, not on Christmas day.  And this is what I received from my thoughtful daughter.  I had one a long time ago, that I dropped down the stairs.  My granny had a green one very similar to this, which I loved to look at when I was a child.  I was so excited when I saw it.

We had a great Thanksgiving dinner.  Ivy asked why we were eating so much food and not doing school (my studious child, who I can't keep busy enough in school).  She did not like turkey, but loved the cranberries and sweet potatoes.  Both Eva and Joy asked for seconds on the cranberry sauce.  Mike does a great job.  They are always perfect.

I think *we* had a white tree like that when I was young too!!! Where did Jordan find it?? Talk about a walk down memory lane!

I love all the decorating and BAKING! I love this time of year! Family & food - how can you beat that?


It's been a while--I am catching up on some blogs! We have a green tree with red pegs that has a music box in the bottom--from my grandmother! What a sweet daughter you have! Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving/Christmas decorating.

I am so looking forward to celebrating Advent! Take care.


Love the ornaments. And Jordan did a great job on the cookies. Wish I could reach through my computer screen and grab me some!

I totally love the white tree. Ours was green and played music. What a special gift. Ivy is too cute about school.


ok i gasped when I saw the tree-we had one too growing up and so did my Grandma and for some reason it just brought back a flood of memories to that picture and made me tear up...thanks for helping bless me today :)
