Farmhouse Friday No. 1

Welcome friends to Farmhouse Friday.  Each week I will be sharing with you what has been happening here at Woodwater Farmhouse, recipes, homeschooling and favorites from around the web. I hope you come in and hang out with me each Friday. 

Today is Black Friday and it's the first time EVER that I can remember that I am not shopping!  That is because I am pretty much done except for a few on line purchases.  I want to enjoy the holidays so I was on top of it this year.

Last week we finished up Thanksgiving teachings in our homeschool.  Some of it has been "fun work" and other times really hitting the books hard.  We only hit the books for Monday and Tuesday and the rest of the week was family time and prepping the home for guests.

I was able to carve out some time for a little holiday crafting. Using what nature offers us here at the farmhouse, and some beautiful plaid and buffalo checked ribbon from Michaels, I made some festive holiday swags for the back deck and the house. 

As you can see by the pictures, we had our first snow fall here on the mountain.  We woke up Sunday morning to 5 inches of wet heavy snow which, made for a magical morning indeed. It also snowed more Sunday night to put a fresh coat on it all. 

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I have been preparing for Thanksgiving and putting up our seven artificial Christmas trees (yes an intervention might be needed), decorating like a mad woman.  This Thanksgiving will be a little bit out of the norm for us with our grand baby due only 2 days after Christmas, my son and his wife will be staying home for Christmas this year instead of coming up to the house.  Of course, I had to have the house decorated for Christmas since we will also be celebrating Christmas with them (aka Thanksmas).  The kitchen is still all Thanksgiving and the rest of the house is Christmas. But you can bet I will be transitioning the kitchen today to all things Christmas! Watch for that.

It was so much fun to decorate the new house. 

What I am obsessed with this week....

Have you decorated yet?
