What did you have to eat????

My Thanksgiving table (notice new color on walls-I just love it) We had this table in the dining room and another in the kitchen. We had twelve people. Every year I get to use my Amber Depression Glass goblets. They just look like Thanksgiving. Love the fall colors.

From reading many of your blogs I noticed a huge variation of menus. Some sounded good, some sounded a bit strange. Here is what we had in the deep south....

Fried turkey
Cornbread dressing
Mashed potatoes
Green beans and Corn
Sweet potatoes casserole

Happy Thanksgiving

I am truly blessed this Thanksgiving to have such a great family to share this Holiday with. I am thankful for all I have. More to come tomorrow....

I may be to far down south to make it to the sale BUT, I have a great friend who went today and gave me the play by play over the cell...Sounds like she got some great deals (with a few for me, of course). Lots of love to all who live close enough to attend-I'm so jealous.

Many of you will remember my post on how my BFF looks like Wednesday Addams. Well, just the other night while watching the CMA awards I had another moment where it occurred to me that her husband looks just like Brad Paisley. So as a follow up on her story I posted a photo of her husband compared to Brad Paisley. This means Wednesday Addams is married to Brad Paisley. How cute....


This weekend I finally had the chance to switch over my summer closet to the winter goods. It was a all day daunting task. It should have been done long before now but time was not on my side. In the children's playroom there is a extra closet so the off season stuff gets smashed into that closet. So for now the Lilly will sleep peacefully until the warm weather returns.

Just had to share this pic. of a two headed turtle we saw on Lulu's field trip to a science center...


Tuesday was baby boy's fourth birthday...Happy birthday to my sweet little boy...I will say he can make a preppy momma proud. He wanted a Volvo birthday cake and a Dyson vacc. for his birthday. He went to the mall for a build a bear and then to spend the afternoon with daddy at Volvo. We had a small family gathering where he got his Volvo cake and Dyson that is just like mommies. This thing was impossible to find and had to be purchased through eBay. We had a blast and he had a great birthday.

Why does everyone including ABC news keep saying,

McCain Graciously Concedes to Obama, the Nation's First Black President

Half of his family was white, therefore making him multi racial. Not black not white but multi-racial.

I know I have been missing for the past week or so but things have been so very busy. We hosted my daughters class Halloween party. We had a blast and I will shortly post about the party and add tons of pics. Stay tuned, I must go get ready to take Lu Lu to a Cheetah Girls show. Be back tonight....
