Yes, Virginia, Fall did finally make it to our part of the world.
My good friend at
Alleeoops Photography shared these photos.
What a beautiful afghan my sweet friend Lisa presented to me.
Perfect match for me in my chair, don'cha think?
We made a speedy trip to and from North Carolina to visit my nephew and his wife for Thanksgiving. These pics seem to say that everybody just kind of lazed the day away, but really, there was a lot of action going on in the kitchen. We shopped the previous day together for the food and then everybody was in the kitchen preparing Thanksgiving dinner! What a feast it was! And good times were had by all on that day.
Playing a fun card game called
Dinner at Southern Prime was fantastic.
Christmas decor all over the town.
I liked the way they transformed an
evergreen tree into a snowman!

Notices and announcements can be found here at the Town Crier
There was room for us at the Inn.
Meanwhile, in other parts of the world:
Amy went to visit her family while
Jason did his duty at the fire station.
Billy, Crystal and Hunter sent their blessings
from the other side of the ocean.
My sister with her family
Our daughter and her family
We don't always get to be with EVERYBODY on those special days, but I will say that every day spent with family always becomes a SPECIAL day. Whether with them or far apart, a special part of Thanksgiving is being thankful for what we do have and the times we get to share with them.
After we returned home, Amy and I took Kate and Jack to see Disney on Ice. I don't think the kids were as impressed with Disney on Ice as they were everything the hawkers were selling! Cotton candy, popcorn, and twirling, lighted swords were more to their liking!
Amy may be laughing at me for spending $24 for popcorn!
Caution: Cotton candy may cause blue smiles
