Christmastime at Eddie’s 2017

It's that time of year again... one of my favorite times. Eddie's in Henagar, AL has their Christmas trees set up. I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE going each year. It gets me all giddy inside thinking about the beauty of Christmas and how much I love my Christmassy home. 

Their trees range from rustic, to glitzy, to elegant, to wacky... All kinds. It's truly amazing. 

I was talking to my family while we were walking through, and I said that even though some of the trees were not my style whatsoever... all the trees were amazingly beautiful! And it's true! It's really incredible how they make each tree so unique and so gorgeous.

My Mom's favorite part was the gingerbread and candy trees. She puts up a candy tree in her kitchen. The grandkids LOVE it!
My sister was crazy about these little hedgehogs. They were adorable!

Going to Eddie's with the girls is such a treat, and I hope we can continue the tradition for MANY more years to come!

Men’s Chili Cook-off and Hayride

Each year our church has a Men's Chili Cook-off. This year we combined this with our annual hayride and fellowship. It was a perfect afternoon. We had seven men enter the cook-off. The families in charge of set-up and clean-up did SUCH a lovely job making it such a beautiful autumnal scene. 
All the pumpkins, mums, and leaves make me SO happy. 

We had a brief testimony from a sweet lady that goes to our church who was in Las Vegas when the shootings happened. It's amazing how the Lord works in the lives of His people. 
The kids were so excited for the hayride! 
Shannon manned the fire. He did a great job. 

My sweet nephew Deacon LOVED the hayride. He rode until they put the tractor away. 

Several games of football, horseshoes, and corn hole took place during the afternoon. 

It was a fun time had by all. I love my church.
