hello, my name is natasha and i used to blog…hehe. i know, i’ve been away for a bit haven’t i? i am so sorry for the absence, especially during my FAVORITE time of the year! we are now 100% healthy here at the stoneking residence and are happy to feel like ourselves again…through caroline’s first ear infection, more teething, and a sinus and upper respiratory infection for me, it was a rough few weeks indeed.
this past week we had all sorts of fun with the family over thanksgiving! we all gathered at my aunt michele’s house for lunch and dove right in…and yes, luckily this girl got her appetite back JUST in time for turkey, dressing (my favorite), and loads of pumpkin pie. we celebrated all we have to be grateful for-specifically this little one seen below-and spent the day relaxing…what could be better!
saturday, jeff did some shopping while cc and i went out and about for some girl time to hit up target’s holiday decor, old navy’s super sale, and shopped for a new dvd player for the house so we could break out all the holiday movie favorites we love so much!
that evening, we got out the hoards of holiday rubbermaid bins, put on some christmas tunes, and let the decorating commence…being at home with my little family made my heart so very happy. this holiday season is going to be my favorite i do believe!
sunday afternoon, we were FINALLY able to meet up with our wonderful photog/friend for our family holiday session. this was the 3rd time trying to get these taken and i was beginning to think it just wasn’t going to happen…but luckily candice didn’t give up on us and i think we got some AMAZING shots for our cards this year.
ok, another start to the week…wanting this to be a productive one because we have a gala friday night and saturday we fly out for california! hope you had a FANTABULOUS thanksgiving!
and p.s. before i TOTALLY forget again, the winner of the East Coast Bride prize package is Jamie…she said she’d be using the giveaway for her upcoming March 2013 wedding…how perfect! I’ll be sending your info to Keri and she’ll be contacting you soon!
