It's almost Christmas, but I couldn't not share these precious pictures Michael captured on Thanksgiving at Gran's.

It was rather warm and the kids had the best time playing outside in the leaves!  Anne climbed the Magnolia tree and Liam rode the little car (the one that Michael rode as a child!!)
Now that it's Christmas, we're looking forward to making lots more fun memories!

Today is December first which means the first day of Dressember.  Late last night Anne decided she would join me in wearing a dress every day this month.  I remember last year when my friend Hope did Dressember, I had never heard of it or knew what it was all about.  After doing a lot of research and hearing Blythe's story, I decided to join this year along with 18 other people on our MS team.  
"In 2013, Dressember took on new meaning: opposing the worldwide trafficking and exploitation of women. In its first year as a fundraising campaign, Dressember aligned with International Justice Mission, a human rights organization that works to rescue victims of slavery, sexual exploitation, and other forms of violent oppression. Those who participate in Dressember are supporting the abolition of modern day slavery. Beginning in 2015, the Dressember campaign will expand to partner with other anti-trafficking organizations."
Today we exceeded our goal and are excited to say the least!!
