Might be a day late and dollar short as far as sharing thankful moments here being that Thanksgiving was indeed last week, but in case those who do read and follow my blog hadn’t noticed over the last two weeks, my site was indeed not up and running properly, especially during Thanksgiving week.
A special shoutout and thanks to those who did reach out by contacting me to make sure I was aware. As frustrated as I felt, I couldn’t have felt more loved with the outpouring of support I received during the hosting and technical server issues.
Still, I refrained from posting much as the week went on at least until I knew what I was up against and had the situation under control.
Needless to say the issues are finally all cleared up and it was a Thanksgiving miracle that took place with A Small Orange migrating my sites on Thanksgiving Day.
You read that right, Thanksgiving Day found me concerned with blogging issues.
Yet, life did go on as I did find more than enough to keep me busy last week aside from blogging and this site.
See last week was indeed Thanksgiving week, but also not only found me busy not just with Thanksgiving, but my younger daughter’s 5th birthday, her school kindergarten Thanksgiving feast, as well as her Frozen baking party with her school girl friends.
However having my sites hosting being touch and go, nearly put me over the top for just how chaotic it was here.
It was indeed a whirl wind week.
As I was sitting here on late Sunday night, uploading and remembering all while going through the photos from the past week, my now 5 year old appeared in my bedroom. She should be sleeping, but apparently she was also having trouble letting go to begin the new week.
For the next thing I knew she told me very seriously with tears in her eyes, “I don’t want my birthday next year to come as I am not ready to grow up too fast. On second thought though, I may not need the birthday next year, but don’t forget the presents.”
Once I calmed down her little 5 year old mind and got her off to bed, I couldn’t help but want to relive the best moments from this past week here on my blog. Mind you this is just a small sampling of the photos with a brief photo bombing recap that I truly just couldn’t resist displaying here in my little space in the big, old internet.
Sit back and enjoy now!
The week started off on Sunday night with my youngest’s last evening of being four before turn the big 5, the following day…
And then she was 5! This 5 year old wanted a unicorn for reaching the whole hand milestone. So a unicorn, she got indeed…
This 5 year old asked for a Carvel cake and it of course, it had to be pink. Hello Kitty was added in for good measure!
Over the next two days, as class mom I got the honor and pleasure of preparing and also celebrating with her kindergarten class for their Thanksgiving feast…
As crazy a day as Thanksgiving was including having this site migrated, I couldn’t help but share these two as they are my most thankful thing always!
Thanksgiving weekend gave way to this girl’s 5 year old Frozen baking party celebration!
Now, it is Monday morning here and so very thankful to have my site back up and running better than ever.
Tomorrow is December 1st and we are quickly approaching the holiday season.
I still can’t believe Christmas is now only a little over 3 weeks away. Still need to decorate, bake all sorts of yummy cookie creations, visit with Santa and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
As more busy times ahead for sure, but I am never more thankful for all the messy and organized times here. Because even still so much fun does indeed take place as witnessed from the quick photo roundup above through it all.
Honestly though, I wouldn’t have it any other way–happy and thankful for this and so much more–just hopeful that as much as time needs to keep moving that we can slow things down a bit to take it all in.
