Little Bear Creek Tree Farm

We spent last Saturday at the Little Bear Creek Tree Farm in the quaint mountain town of Alta, CA. Although hubby and I recently invested in a fabulous, pre-lit, 9ft artificial beauty, we were happy to accompany my brother and his family to their annual tree cutting ceremony. It was an altogether great time! Little Bear Creek Tree Farm has restored several 1950's era Willys Jeeps that transport you through the forest to an area where you can choose and cut down your own Christmas tree. After selecting the "perfect" tree, you head back down the hill, where you can have your tree netted to transport home. We enjoyed ourselves visiting, while sipping hot cider and of course took a moment to browse around the cozy gift shop. The uber inviting and crackling campfire was a popular spot that afternoon, there was much to see and do. I can't wait to return next year and make it an annual trip each year!

**HAppY THaNkSgiViNg**

Ahh, the hustle and bustle that accompanies me this time every's great isn't it? KP and I are hosting the feast this year, and we have 20 people, including ourselves coming over! Did I mention that Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday, and how much I love that house-full feeling, family, fellowship, fun and fabulously tasty food. It all comes together just right when you look around and pause to remember all that you have you be thankful for, you silently look to God and thank him for the abundant blessings he has so graciously provided throughout the year. During this time of year I am reminded of just fortunate I am, for everything I have. My family, my health, my home--the things most important to me. God is my rock, my solid foundation for life. He is a good God, loving and forgiving. Thank you Lord for being the gracious, loving awesome God you are, I thank you for guiding my life and walking with me each day.

A Happy Thanksgiving to all, I wish for you a wonderful holiday with family and friends!

Trick or Treat

All hail Princess Bella....she is an absolute doll!!! She really took to Halloween, she had such fun and plenty of ohhh's and ahhh's! I know I am biased, but oh she was too adorable! Well, we succeeded in a funfilled first Halloween. Thank's so much baby girl for making Mommy's 30th one to remember.

Halloween will come and go every year, and contumes will change each time, but you will always be my precious little Princess. Love n' kisses to you!
