Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hope you were all able to get together with family and friends and enjoy the day!

We went to have Thanksgiving at my sister's house - and had a lovely time! Only one downside, oldest son wasn't able to come home and join us. This is the first holiday we haven't all been together. He was well taken care of though - he was invited to friends, had a great time, and had three or four other invitations also. He was even sent a package of his favorite Pumpkin Cookies from his friend's mom back home here in St. Joe.

Lovely dishes aren't they? My hubby made those! On his pottery wheel! Very talented guy if I do say so myself!

And here is my dear sister, the host. (mmmm just look at those sweet potatoes!)

Oh, and can't forget an actual craft I did. See the banner I made? I couldn't pick which one was better (neither one is too in focus), did that after seeing all the lovely banners done on other blogs. Come to think of it, mine are pretty plain looking! Oh well, it is a beginning!

Mom, stop center-aligning all your text. :P

Looks like you guys had fun. Our sweet potatoes definitely looked better than yours though. =) Carmelized almond topping, mmm, to die for. And we had a little baby to play with! (Well, I guess you guys had Emily…)

It was the first Thanksgiving away from home for both Ben and me too. We had quite an excellent time though, It was a viable alternative!

Hi and isn't the Holidays the pits when our kids get older and can't make it home! Looks like you had a nice Thanksgiving and yes your plates are beautiful!

The yarn ball question...I wrap as many little gifts in each yarn ball as I can.

Have a wonderful Holiday season and thank you so much for stopping by. =O)
