Happy Thanksgiving Decor

I'm a weeeee bit behind in posting this, but I'm sure you will still appreciate it :). Hope all of you had a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Croix and I sure did. We ate pretty darn good, lol. As you all know I LOVE TO DECORATE!!! So here are my Thanksgiving/Fall home decor :)




This is my Thankful Tree. I wrote down all the things that I am thankful for and glued them on my branches.
Of course Croix is at the very TOP of my tree :)
This candle made my whole house smell like Thanksgiving. LOVE this candle!
Topped it all off with our Thanksgiving/Fall holiday door wreath.
Now I'm preparing for my Winter Wonderland / Santa's Village theme!

20 Things a Mother Should Tell Her Son

I read a lot of mommy blogs and this entry I picked up from www.werdyab.com. And its called 20 Things a Mother Should Tell Her Son. I couldn't agree more with everything she said. So I am sharing it with you all. If you or anyone you know that has a son, please show them this.
1. You will set the tone for the sexual relationship, so don't take something away from her that you can't give back.

2. Play a sport. It will teach you how to win honorably, lose gracefully, respect authority, work with others, manage your time and stay out of trouble. And maybe even throw or catch.

3. Use careful aim when you pee. Somebodies got to clean that up, you know.

4. Save money when you're young because you're going to need it some day.

5. Allow me to introduce you to the dishwasher, oven, washing machine, iron, vacuum, mop and broom. Now please go use them.

6. Pray and be a spiritual leader.

7. Don't ever be a bully and don't ever start a fight, but if some idiot clocks you, please defend yourself.

8. Your knowledge and education is something that nobody can take away from you.

9. Treat women kindly. Forever is a long time to live alone and it's even longer to live with somebody who hates your guts.

10. Take pride in your appearance.

11. Be strong and tender at the same time.

12. A woman can do everything that you can do. This includes her having a successful career and you changing diapers at 3 A.M. Mutual respect is the key to a good relationship.

13. "Yes ma'am" and "yes sir" still go a long way.

14. The reason that they're called "private parts" is because they're "private". Please do not scratch them in public.

15. Peer pressure is a scary thing. Be a good leader and others will follow.

16. Bringing her flowers for no reason is always a good idea.

17. Be patriotic.

18. Potty humor isn't the only thing that's humorous.

19. Please choose your spouse wisely. My daughter-in-law will be the gatekeeper for me spending time with you and my grandchildren.
20. Remember to call your mother because I might be missing you.
I've learned so much being a mother. There is no type of love like the love a mother has for her child. I can't even explain the unconditional feelings and emotions I have for my son. He is my blessing everyday. He makes me an even better person. And I owe him the world for such a gift. I am raising a boy to be a man of the world.....I am completely honored.
