Thank You Notes: Thanksgiving, 12 Days, and Family, Always Family

I love Fridays, I love thank you notes, and I love Jimmy Fallon’s Thank You Notes, so, naturally, Friday here on my blog means:


Thank You Notes

I realize it’s Saturday, not Friday. And I apologize for my tardiness, but hey I was a day early last week. 😉 So, Thursday night I sat down and typed out this post, I told myself you can add pictures to your post early Friday morning, but that didn’t happen. I was so busy with my other Friday post that I didn’t give Thank You Notes the attention it deserves. I mean.. this is my 99th Thank You Notes post!! Next week is 100!!! That’s bonkers. Anyway… this week’s Thank You Notes:

Thank You Notes| It's FRIDAY, time for thank you notes!


Thank you, babe, for Face-timing our son’s Thanksgiving concert. I watched the show in my bed with a box of Kleenex by my side.

Thank you, FaceTime

Thank you, family, for spoiling me and taking care of Thanksgiving.

Thankful for these guys

Thank you, family, for understanding sometimes mama needs to take a flat lay.

Thank you, Saturday, for being a little nicer to me.

Thankful for the little things

I went out in the public for the first time in what felt like FOREVER. (Excuse the picture quality it was an insanely gray day. Shocker.)

The babies decorating the treeWe put up our tree.

Melt my heart. ❤️ It IS the most wonderful time of the year. ?

  1. This is so cute! I think we need to be more thankful as a society, so posts like this are always a great reminder to be thankful, even for the little things.

  2. Your family is pretty amazing Dean! What a great family car picture 🙂 I can’t believe you’ve written 99 Thank You notes, time flies when you’re having fun.

    1. Aww you’re too sweet to me, Mary! Thank you!!
      I can’t believe I’ve done 99 Thank You Notes either, time flies indeed. 🙂

  3. I love this idea of doing Thank you notes every week. Facetime is a great way to see all the action when you can’t be there. I wish I had that on my phone. Your photos are so adorable!

    1. Thank you, Melanie, Thank You Notes has really helped me to be grateful and stay positive. 🙂 Although, sometimes I write a few snarky Thank You Notes. 😀
      Facetime is one of the best features Apple offers and I’m so thankful that we had last week. I felt horrible that I couldn’t make it to my son’s performance, so this was much appreciated.
      Thanks again!

    1. I understand, plus his show comes on kind of late. I don’t always catch it, but when I do it’s a good laugh. 🙂

  4. I just love your Thank You Notes posts! They always make me feel good! That car selfie is cute, we just recently did one when we headed down to the Great Wolf Lodge! Ohh, I would have never thought to use FaceTime, but a brilliant idea when you can’t be there!


    1. Thank you, Carrie! 🙂
      My family has become aware that at anytime I can whip out my phone and ask for the car selfie. 😀 I have posted a few on my IG. 🙂
      Great Wolf Lodge, that must’ve been fun!
      I’d love to take credit for thinking of FaceTime, but that was my oldest daughter’s idea. I’m so glad she thought of that, because I was feeling horrible that I was sick and couldn’t make it. Actually, I wanted to go (despite not feeling well), but some people said I shouldn’t.
      Wishing you a beautiful week!

  5. This is darling! I love your site. I agree and feel there should be more thanks expressed this time of year as well as all year long but thank you notes are perfect!

  6. Wowee, you’re almost at 100! I’m glad you’re feeling better. Being sick sucks, but it’s the worst when it’s during a holiday. (True story: when I was in second grade I had chicken pox during Thanksgiving.)

  7. Omg so much cuteness!!! Thankyou cards are a favorite of mine!! My hubby laughs at me because I send out so many!!!

  8. I’m so glad you’re feeling better and you have such a loving family. How sweet of your husband to Facetime the performance. It’s like being there without being there. Your dog is too cute and he makes a great model! No more sickness, okay. Stay sweet. Hugs!

  9. 99, nearly 100!! WHOA! I think I’ve read many of them! If not, I’ll go back in time.
    Being sick = terrible. The FaceTiming is so sweet!! And I understand about gray days. The sun is out today and it’s confusing me. It’s melting the SNOW!
