give thanks – day 17

Thankful for my incredible family, the memories, and the traditions.

Today, we went to the tree farm, got a Christmas tree for the house. Then we started the process of laying out all the lights for the outdoor tree. Halfway through we left for thanksgiving dinner with the family. Finished the day the lighting of both the indoor and outdoor trees.

The star on our outdoor tree has been in the family since my dad was in 1st grade. It’s been on top of a Bowles Christmas tree every year. Today was the 25th anniversary of the lighting of our outdoor tree and the 50th anniversary for that star.

It was a full day, but I have ended the day with such a full heart. I’m thankful for my family and all of the weird, awesome, and slightly redneck things we do.

They are my favorites.
