Throwback Thursday: Goodbye to Thanksgiving Break

Ok so background…this blog was posted on another platform November 30th 2014. At the time we had just made the big move from Southern California to Texas. I hope you enjoy little bit of my past and the comments I insert in italics while looking back.


As with all other areas of life, our Thanksgiving began with some bumps in the road, but it all leveled out. Its funny how those bumps seem so important at the time, but I have no clue what they were looking back…

We had quite a nice time visiting with my mother, who flew in from California. Sadly she had to return home today and tomorrow break is over. I really appreciate how much time and energy my mom has put into seeing us. She comes out at least 3 times a year.

Tomorrow we head back to the hustle and bustle that is our daily lives. Some days I love it, some days I hate it, but mostly I am so thankful for everyone who is a part of it. Honestly in those days…I hated it a lot. I was really struggling with adjusting to a new college and such a large one at that. I had a lot of struggle deciding where I belonged in this world and led to a lot of depression.

On another note, we are in the final stretch of FALL semester! Only a few more weeks and then we can really relax! Not to mention Christmas and then vacation. We have a lot to look forward to! Man did I always look forward to the breaks during the school year. The first year after I graduated I got this horrible anxiety like I should be preparing for something, but I wasn’t… Apparently my body was just used to freaking out at that time of the year. The next year it was a lot better because I was in that stay at home mom groove.

I cant wait to see our children’s faces on Christmas morning! The best part is seeing the kids faces after we put so much effort into things. I love Christmas.


So these pictures were not a part of the original post (it didn’t have any), but I figured I would add some from Fall 2014.

We had family pictures taken that Fall and man have these 3 grown since then… and we have 2 more munchkins since then too!
I used to LOVE to get the girls themed bows for every occasion. They don’t really wear them much anymore, but I bought these bows locally for Thanksgiving 2014.
So much cuteness!
