Snow Birds

Hi Everyone. 
 I want to wish all my US friends a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.  With firefighters and nurses in our family we will actually celebrate Thanksgiving on Friday this year.  Call of duty for a few of us on the actual holiday.  It is about being together and celebrating our blessing so it is all ok to wait one day!!!

I wanted to share with you a little find I found at Target.

This is my new snowbird family.  Are they not the cutest?!!

They just make me smile with their cute little fur hats and winter coats.

I really was minding my own business in Target actually looking for an extension cord when they sweet little birds flew into my cart.  I had to adopt them and take them home for my Christmas/Winter decor.

Since we are celebrating Thanksgiving on Friday at my daughters that has given me tomorrow to finish up my Christmas Decorating.

In this tiny house I did not have a lot of space for much decor but what I am doing is making me smile.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I hope there are so many wonderful blessings for all of you this year.

For all of you that are not in the USA have a great rest of this beautiful week.

  1. Kris, I just love those little birds. I may have to make a stop on the way home today and pick up a couple. When we reflect on the things to be thankful for this holiday we should count those people who keep us safe or are there when things go wrong. Thank you to your family members for being the people who are on duty during our celebration. We've had a couple of visits to an ER room on a holiday over the years but thankfully never serious. Hope you all have a wonderful belated Thanksgiving!

  2. AWWWWWWW! I love how they "flew into your cart" - that happens at Target!!!!!!!! Oh Kris, they are hilarious; they faces say, "Take me home right now!" Adorable. Isn't it fun to fluff up our nests for the holidays?

  3. Kris, God bless the firefighters and nurses in your family. We love them and appreciate them. Oh my I want a snow bird family too. :):) So darn cute. Happy Thanksgiving and blessings to you my friend, xoxo, love, Susie

  11. Hi Kris..
    Just popping in for a quick visit.What a sweet Snowbird Family! I can see why you wanted to bring them home. I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving with your family on Friday! We will have many of our kids and most of our grandkids here tomorrow. I look forward to catching up after the holiday.

  12. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Kris. I saw these little critters on IG, they are precious. My father in law was a fire captain, and we spent so many years without him at the able when he was at he firehouse. It's very hard. You make the best of it with your Friday celebration.

    Love to you,

    Jane x

  13. Those birds are very cute - but I had to laugh because your post title caught my eye. Here, we call people who spend the cold Canadian winter living in the south, snow birds. I thought you were writing about people! I love their little clothes! -Jenn

  14. Love the snowbirds, they certainly would have flown into my cart too! Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving from France xx

  15. Oh those birds are the cutest!!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! We appreciate the service of the nurses, firemen and policemen (and women). Many blessings!

I'm thankful to each person who becomes a helper and giver to others. Have a wonderful day on Friday! Hugs.. Marilyn

  22. Oh my goodness...those birds are just darling! I may have to run to Target (or more likely look online. Black Friday shopping is not my gig!). I hope you have had a relaxing day decorating...we did the same. Enjoy your family tomorrow! xo

    Oh my goodness those sweet birds are too adorable* I love them all. We are going to Target tomorrow morning(not my idea) but my youngest who has never shopped on Black Friday and wants to see what its like :)
    have a great time with your family on Friday* and have fun decorating

  24. Kris those are the cuties birds ever! I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm looking forward in seeing the magic you'll weave for Christmas this year!
    xoxo Jo

  25. Happy Thanksgiving Kris & Co.! Reading your post made me nostalgic for two things: One: the days when on Christmas we were missing one or more of our family (father, grandfather, brother-in-law) as they worked at the Fire Department. Two: TARGET! Oh my... a sad, sad, day for Macy and I when they closed their doors and left Canada. I love, love your wee birds! They are adorable and made just for you in your white wonderland. xo

  26. I absolutely love the snow birds. They are the sweetest!!
    Have a great Thanksgiving with your family.
    Love, Carla

  27. OMG----I can see why these little snow birds flew into your cart!! They are the cutest ever!

  29. Hope you had a most wonderful Thanksgiving with the family! Love your snowbird friends!!!

  30. LOL, yes, I'm sure they flew into your cart---knowing they would have a snowy white home all year long. Grins, Sandi

  31. So, so cute Kris. I would have snatched them up too... they are perfect for your snowy white decor.
