This morning, Thanksgiving morning, we woke up to beautiful big, fluffy snowflakes falling to the ground. The kids were thrilled and couldn't wait to get outside and play. Once the turkey was in the oven were out the back door. Chloe loved catching snowflakes in her net and Lowell just loved running around in the white fluff!
We came in and set the tables for our company. The flowers are from my hubby for our anniversary. Gorgeous! So fun to set a festive table as a way of saying thanks.
My parents, my husbands father, sister and her family all came. I ate entirely too much pumpkin related treats. My parents brought wonderful pumpkin pies and my sister-in-law brought Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake. Yum!! The kids played, we talked, everyone had a nice time. So much to be thankful for. After the guests left, it was growing dark and Joe and I were beat, but the kids still had some pep left. I decided a nice activity would be to put up the Christmas tree....tonight. Granted it's a very small tree and I knew that Chloe would enjoy helping me. So we went to it like little elves.
She loved putting all her bulbs on the tip of one branch. Then of course they fell off and one of the vintage ones broke. All in all, we had a fun time. Ta da...here you go...our tree for 2007! So thankful for my energy. Thankful that I have all of you, my lovely blog readers to share my special memories with at the end of the day. Thank you for sharing yours as well. Now I'm sitting down to a glass of wine. You won't find me getting up to go shopping tomorrow. I'll be home with the kids since Joe is working. See Keri's list for 10 other fun things to do instead of shop. And stay tuned for my grand adventures with Ulla on Saturday!
