Blessings to each of you as we here in America celebrate Thanksgiving!
It has become one of my favorite if not my most favorite Holiday...
no presents, few decorations, just Good Food and Family!
I've not blogged much this past week as I have been getting my home ready for family. We won't have as large of a group this year but with just my immediate family there are 12...so that's a CROWD in my book!
Today I battled the grocery store for the upteenth time this week!
I'm making my own pumpkin pies this year
I use the recipe on the back of the can of Libby's Pumpkin Pie Mix.
DeWIcious according to 3 yr. old Sidekick Scott
He was quite upset that Grandmama left him home with PaPaw while she went grocery shopping!
"But you'll be all alone?!" cried Sidekick Scott.
A 3 yr. old doesn't understand that being all alone can sometimes be a gift!
I'll be back later this weekend perhaps not till Monday depending on how I feel. I usually decorate the house for Christmas on the Sat./Sun. after Thanksgiving now that I've given in to having an artificial tree. I stood my ground for years...LIVE TREE ONLY..until I finally got tired of the pine needles and the shortened amount of time I could leave my Christmas tree up and I gave in to putting up a FAKE TREE. I must admit, I can't tell the difference. Now that I'm older and the experience of going to a Christmas Tree farm, picking out the perfect tree, and cutting it down is but a delightful memory, putting up my fake tree is quite nice.
