Today is the last day of Kelli's House of Thanks. I was really glad to be able to participate this year and look forward to many more... Since I am a little obsessed with the holidays... I plan on continuing some holiday posts all thru December as well.
I was going to post pictures of my really cute Thanksgiving Tree (on my freshly painted yellow walls) BUT I have a few more hands floating thru the mail and must await for their arrival before I post pictures. I was not planning on posting as I was drawing a complete blank today. Im still suffering from a bad case of the sniffles and feel clogged most of the day. On my way back from Barnes and Nobles my blogging side of my brain cleared up a bit and Viola !!! I have a post.
These are some pictures of Last years celebration. We had just moved to our new home state and it was our first holiday away from family. We were a bit sad (but not sad enough to make that 13.5 hour drive back;) but drowned our sorrows in extra turkey gravy and stuffing. The babies were so much smaller last year, we were in our plain white rental home living out of boxes... Our cabinets were being installed in our new home that we watched being built thru the trees. It was just the 7 of us and we had fun, after a delicious dessert spread we played a good game of Monopoly and shared the brownies with the neighborhood kids that somehow made it into our backyard.
Wow, how much life has changed in just a short 365 days. We are all settled in our "little" red house and happy. We have family traveling down for next week and have a countdown posted on our wipe-off board.
We can't wait to carve into our 23 pound bird... YES I said 2-3 POUNDS!! (the biggest in the case... Jason made sure of it) I will be sure to post pictures.
