Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Happy Thanksgiving dear friends!

{Dear God, I look like I have eaten too much turkey, but don’t my babies look adorable?}

I hope you all are doing well! I miss blogging! I have fallen off the band wagon the last week, because something exciting happened this weekend….my brother Brad flew in from London for Thanksgiving!! We were so excited, it was a last minute thing and we couldn’t have been happier about it. He was able to attend Jake’s Thanksgiving party at school, which was too cute:

And hang out with Evy and model her necklace that she made in her school Thanksgiving party:

My poor baby girl…she is sick, of course. I say of course because the last couple holidays she has been sick. SO NOT FUN. She really rarely gets sick, so crazy how that happens.

I wanted to show you my holiday table. I am SO excited about it. My dining room is coming along, I just have a couple more things I need to paint/recover and then I will be done with that room. Remember my house goals? Well, I’m slowly but surely working my way through it. *Whew* ha.

Anyway…here’s the room yesterday waiting for everyone to get here.

And then today before we ate

My little hot drink corner. I’m a freak, I know, love hot drinks! :)

Thank you Costco, for the beautiful roses. 

I had so much fun setting this table. This was my first Thanksgiving in our home, and it was the first time I had ever really hosted Thanksgiving. I loved it. Bryony and David and their little ones came up late last night and the kids were so excited to see them in the morning. When I woke up, this was what I saw:

Oh boy, it warmed my heart. I love these people.

these were having the best time ever. I am so thankful for these babies.

The large Miraflor family{as in cousins, aunts, uncles, etc.} always spends a couple hours every Thanksgiving going around the room and telling things they are thankful for. It’s a beautiful time which normally ends in lots of tears and hugs. Well, we decided we had to carry that tradition on here in the Santa Rosa Miraflor family. Oh boy…I’m such cryer….it’s pretty safe to say I balled my eyes out. Especially as I looked around the table and saw my brother all the way from London with us, and my dad, who isn’t in great health, eating at the table with us. I especially started tearing up when my dad talked about “the gift of life”…yikes. HUGE tears. I am so thankful for every day I get to spend with my parents. And I am so thankful for my babies, my husband and my family.

I am blessed. 

I am sure you all know the feeling…. In closing, don’t forget the Evy’s Tree Black Friday Sale:

A little note about the sale…Please remember that I have very little stock left and WILL NOT be restocking my shelves with new hoodies from American Apparel until the new year. We are still on target for our manufactured goods to arrive in Jan/Feb of next year…as for our handmade items, there will more coming, but the styles you see in the are on a first come, first serve basis, using up what hoodies and material we have left in the studio. Once they are gone, they are gone…at this point we have NO black hoodies left, very few other colors left, especially in adult sizes. I hope this makes sense. Also, please make note: the cost of the hoodies in the new year will run around $70-$80 range, so these Black Friday prices are a steal! {and make perfect Christmas gifts! :) }

Big hugs everyone! I am so thankful for all of you. I hope you are having an amazing Thanksgiving! We will return to regular blogging program next week…can’t wait to show you our remodeled bathroom that I took pictures of! :)
