Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

I love Thanksgiving, and not just because it’s the official kick-off to legal Christmas celebrations.
- I love the parade
- I love the food
- I love having family and laughter fill my home
- I love the after-dinner street hockey game
- I love the pies (yes, that is different from the rest of the food!)
- I love watching Louisa May Alcott’s “An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving” on the Hallmark channel
- Finally, I love watching “Elf”! (Its allowed after dinner)
WooHoo # 1 – Congratulations to YW for winning the 100th post giveaway!
WooHoo #2 – I finished reading my nutrition textbook!
WooHoo #3 – We finished our annual tradition of making Christmas cards as a family!
I’ve seen many versions of gratitude trees, so I thought I’d share ours. The older kiddos helped cut the out tree and the leaves. We’ve all been writing the things we are grateful for on the leaves and taping them to the tree. One of the first leaves put up at the top said “Heavenly Father”, and I wasn’t even the one who put it up there! I’m grateful for children with good hearts who know that their blessings come from a loving Heavenly Father!
The picture is from the first morning we put it up. It’s already much fuller. I need to cut out more leaves! I’ll post another picture before we take it down.
I’ve such a blast with my little blog the last few months, I’m already up to my hundredth post! I thought I’d share the excitement by giving away this cute Thanksgiving tag . I had so much fun making it, I had to make myself one. I can’t wait to scrapbook my Thanksgiving pictures! Everyone who posts a comment will be entered in a random drawing. I will post the winner next Monday. Good luck!
