It's beginning to look . . .

. . . a lot like Christmas!!
It's the most wonderful time of the year!!
The Christmas spirit has hit The Bowens Bunch & we've had fun decorating our house this week!

The next step is making our list & checking it twice.
SANTA & his ELF are SO PUMPED to start working on presents....
Actually, Santa is trying to get the Elf to do all the work. . .
Keep this Elf in your prayers. . . hopefully she'll still have all of her Christmas cheer by 12/25...

The Bowens Bunch had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
I'm so thankful that we have wonderful family & close friends in which to share this great day.

We had lunch with my mom's family at my grandparents' house. 
Everything was delicious & having this time to spend with family members was priceless. 

We headed to Tim's parents' house, where many of his family was gathered, later on during the day. 
There was tasty food & enjoyable company there as well. :)
Can you tell Tim's aunt is a diehard fan???

There are MANY things I am thankful for, but this Thanksgiving I was most thankful that my hubby was able to join us!!! Because of football, it's been about 9 years since we've been together on this holiday.  I've really missed sharing it with him.  UAB practiced Thursday & had the rest of the day off. So, when we pulled up at my grandparents' house, he was there!! What an awesome surprise!!!!
