.....Front Porch Lookin' In.....

I am thrilled that our tree is infront of the window this year.  This is the first year in a long while we've had a space that allows for the tree infront of the window.   I think it is gorgeous! 

Yesterday my friend Ann came over for coffee and "girl talk".  We really enjoyed our visit, and so did our young sons. 

The play date totally wore this little gal out!

Today was the last day of November. We're on the cusp of December and it's going to be quite the busy month.  Normally I would saying how fast the days after Thanksgiving, but this year it seemed to crawl by.  Maybe because it's been an emotional week, I'm not sure. 

This evening my parents came over to have an early birthday dinner with us.  My step dad bought Dominoes and we had a good time. 

I had a little help with my gift .....

They gave me scissors with handles shaped like a ginger bread man and the blade says "catch me if you can". How cute is that?!  A calgon bath set,  and LOTS of cookie cutters!  I think I see a lot more salt dough ornaments and cut out cookies in my future!!
Next week I get a birthday outting with my husband - no kids.
To finish off the day, a dear friend from Heavens Door Acres sent me this picture today...

I asked her what it was, and she replied "you're box!"  Talk about knocking me over with a feather! I knew she had plans to send something, I had no idea she was sending something for everyone!
Check out her blog and read about her farm rescue.  She's where our pot belly pigs came from, and she was also the one who found the Blue Laced Red Wyandotte pair I added to my flock.   
We didn't get a craft in today, but we did spend some quality time together as a family, eating, visiting, there was some Happy Birthday singing, and movie watching.
Happy Friday everyone!
