Thought I would give you an update of the happenings here at our house in the woods.  Of coarse we had a great Thanksgiving gathering.  Great Grandparents, Grandparents (us), Children and
Spouses and the Grandchildren of coarse.  Here it is.  I did not take pictures. I was too involved with the cooking and spending time with the loved ones.  My mom in law took lots of pictures which she is going to put on a disk for me but I do not have any right now.  We had a wonderful day!  Because I am going away this weekend and because Saturday is my birthday there was also a birthday cake and some presents on Thanksgiving while we were all together.  Lets just say my sweet tooth is good and sweet.  My grands got me some sweet gifts.  There was a Scottie mug with hot chocolate, wrapping paper with flower seeds embedded in it (you just put the paper in you garden in the spring and cover with dirt) and a pretty little music box with a necklace.  You get the picture I am sure.  I also received this:
From this wonderful sweet lady:
Mom in Love
This lady bought this little desk for herself a couple of months ago to put in a spare room upstairs for an extra computer set up.  I mentioned I had been looking for a desk this size to put on a wall in our dining room, and if she found one in her second hand shopping sprees to let me know.  I have been told she has found another to replace this one but I know her heart and I expect it is not exactly what she wanted.  I am blessed.
I also received this new magazine in the mail this past week.  I won it over at The Quilted Fish and it has some great blocks.  A couple I think I would love to use for pillow tops.  Also you should go visit Amanda over at the Quilted Fish she has a lovely blog.
I am still working on the felt food for a Christmas presents for the little grands.  Here are what the pancakes and eggs are looking like.
And I have brought home some more fabrics for to make gifts for my wonderful lady friends.
The trees are up and lit.  I have went out and bought new lights for the village because I never did find the box even after pulling everything up the steps.  I will share pictures of those things at a later time.  It is busy for everyone right now and I know you will understand why I am not posting as much and I am taking a break from the blogging parties this week.  I am going away with my friends for a couple of days and hopefully I will do a better job taking some pictures to share.  Since I am getting a little wordy today I think I will just say goodbye for now and I will catch up with you all soon!  Blessings!
