GOOD MORNING I hope you all had wonderful Thanksgivings with your family and friends AND for those of you that braved Black Friday I hope it was safe and worth your time. Personally, my black Friday was done on line, in my PJ’s and will be delivered today and tomorrow. 😀
We had a small and simple Thanksgiving, just 4 of us and we didn’t even get any pictures taken except this picture of the table before dinner.
We also took advantage of a small break in the weather and cut down our Christmas tree at our favorite Christmas tree farm.
I loved this cute little sign and was amused as we were leaving and I looked over to see this umbrella on a tree. I figure someone set it there to concentrate on cutting their tree and evidently the rain had stopped so they just forgot it 🙁
I also did a little shopping Saturday for the Shop Small, Shop Local event. There is a darling shop in town that I found several ornaments for the tree and a couple of gifts at. They did a wonderful open house spread and gave away wooden snowflake ornaments as a gift with your purchase. 🙂 I’m also looking forward to the craft fair at the fairgrounds next weekend.

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING – Today is a much needed break in the wet weather. We’re supposed to be in the low 50’s today and mid 40’s the rest of this week as well as VERY wet the rest of the week. As normal I’m wearing Levi’s, a soft turtleneck and a matching flannel shirt with my warm fleece boots.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE – Green tea, cheerios and a banana
WHAT’S IN THE CRAFT BASKET – I’m finishing the Christmas Cards and getting them addressed to mail this week.
FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA – We went to the Festivals of Lights over the Thanksgiving weekend during the one evening of no rain and I was able to get quite a few good pictures. I LOVE the entrance – always the same, but also always beautiful.

Looks like you had a busy and exciting week! Living life to its fullest 🙂
How was the Christmas Chronicles? It looks pretty good.
Have a wonderful week!
CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES was very cute a really family oriented. Have a great week too! 😀
What a pretty Thanksgiving table! I didn’t get as many pictures as I’d have liked this Thanksgiving either, such a fine line between enjoying all the wonderfulness of the holiday and remembering to pick up the camera and capture the moment. Hope you have a wonderful week!
Thank you! I couldn’t have said it better. The camera was sitting right there, but we were just having a good time and forgot all about it. Have a GREAT week too. 😀
Beautiful pics (lovely Thanksgiving table) and what a great tip (love the gingerbread men, too)! Thank you! Our Thanksgiving was smaller than usual this year (only six of us for dinner) but it was very nice! It’s been years since we’ve visited a Christmas tree farm. That’s something we will have to do again sometime. I love the smell of a fresh tree! Have a great week ahead and blessings! <3
Thank you! Hubby insists on a real tree when we can and you’re right about the smell, just so fragrant! Have a WONDERFUL week too. 😀
Beautiful picture of the tree farm and that little store sounds just perfect. Have a great week
Thank you! You have a GREAT week too. 😀
