Celebrating two weekends!

                           So excited to join Saturday Celebrations with Ruth Ayres!
                It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday!
Discover. Play. Build.
Celebrations are everywhere when we slow down to notice them:
Thanksgiving eve devotional with friends from many faith communities 
 Sleeping in on turkey day
Having a young friend join us for the holiday
Enjoying Thanksgiving lunch at a restaurant
Heading upstairs to see Catching Fire
The guys for setting up and lighting the Christmas tree  
Lance's homemade pizza (thanks Sara & Will for inspiring him)
Time to play Yahtzee and Chicken Foot
Ryan's coconut macaroons dipped in chocolate
Touching base with loved ones by telephone and email throughout the day
Our friend's time & technological expertise (space again for taking pics on my phone)
A black Friday pajama day perfect for grading papers
Waking up this morning to another weekend and Saturday celebrations!


  1. Your list is peaceful, unstressed, joyful, and full of meaning of Thanksgiving!

  2. What a beautiful summary of a great weekend. Have not heard of Chick Foot??

    1. Leigh Anne, it's a domino game quite similar to Mexican Train.

  3. Coconut macaroons! Let the celebrating begin!

  4. Sounds like a terrific weekend of celebrations! Faith, family, friends, food, fun… can't get much better than that!

  5. Holidays are filled with such fun! Love your list. :-)

  6. I like pajama day. We had that earlier in the week. Both kids got to stay home from school with a babysitter. They stayed in their jammies all day!

  7. What a great combination of activity and food! Mmmm, I'm thinking pizza sounds good right about now.

  8. What a great combination but I just LOVE the idea of a Black Friday Pajama day! WONDERFUL and with the internet, it is indeed possible!

  9. I had coconut cookies dipped in chocolate today too. YUM!

  10. Sounds like a very, very nice weekend, Ramona. For several years we ate out too, & it was fun, no leftovers, but we enjoyed not cooking too. I'd love to see Catching Fire-soon!
