Happy Thanksgiving

For those celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope you have a wonderful day and can find much to be thankful for.  I’m thankful that my family is here.

We’ve had a busy few days.  I’ve done lots of cooking; mom and I have found a few minutes to get some sewing done.

On Thanksgiving Eve, I was busy cooking and decided to snap a few pictures of the family:

Chad had gone duck hunting in the morning.

Vince and Speck minding their own business.  Don’t you love how Vince has his laptop sitting?

Not quite sure what Dad was doing . . playing with a cell phone maybe.  Notice my new sunshine face on the wall (the one to the right of the door is new).  Love it!  Please do not notice all the junk sitting on my counters.

Mom being silly and threatening to stick her finger in my pumpkin pie!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Judy! Love the pictures! I’m still sick so I’ll probably stay home today. Give Speck a kiss from Daisy! (Hugs)

    I didn’t notice the junk on the counter until you pointed it out either! Looks just like my place usually does.
    Have a good weekend from an Aussie where we don’t have thanksgiving, but much to be thankful for.

    Hey…I’m with the gal who said her counters look much like yours. Mine look cluttered 99% of the time, too. It makes me feel better when I see others have the same “look” about their places. I also was feeling I am the only one with lots of stuff held (with magnets) on my fridge, so I was glad to see you have “stuff” on yours, too. Sometimes I try to kid myself into thinking I am experimenting with new “patterns” by leaving various areas of clutter around!!! LOL Hope your Thanksgiving day has been wonderful.

    That’s not too bad, Judy. My mother-in-law always brings a stack of wash cloths when she comes to visit. I have a ton of wash cloths, but I guess we always run out when she’s visiting. I don’t even want to know what kind of message she is sending me!

    The heater is funny! My hubby & I used to vacation in San Diego & took along our little heater. We would sit outside on the deck, heater at our feet & be cozy while enjoying the sea.
