Turkey Talk

I pray everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving! Are your leftovers gone yet?? Did the tryptophan put you on the couch LOL?

We had such a Peace-filled Thanksgiving and we were sooo excited that our oldest daughter and husband along with our Precious Rylee were able to come and spend the evening with us! A rare treat indeed. For the past 10 years or so we are out of town with my Mom and Stepdad and so it was just wonderful having them join us. Sitting around our table and sharing Thanks was just so very special. I know you all are dying to know if I made a turkey LOL well.....my DH grilled a turkey tenderloin ~ Does that count ;)??
It was delicious and of course we had all the fabulous sides. We were stuffed!

The rest of the weekend we spent decorating for Christmas. Our lights went up outside and look fabulous! I Just LOVE having our house lit up. I am figuring out that I get that from my Daddy. I remember this time last year when my brother and I boarded a plane to Florida to see Daddy. When we arrived at his house it was like a winter wonderland and I have NEVER seen so many lights! I am so glad Daddy was able to see his lights up before he passed. I remember pushing him outside in the wheelchair and just seeing his face light up and that smile! Daddy had such a beautiful smile!! That moment was such a gift!

What about you guys? Did you get your Christmas decorating started? Tree up? I really can't even believe this week starts December!! It's just amazing how quickly this year has flown isn't it!?!

On Sunday I put up a Facebook Status that I was making my Winter Lotion and some asked if I would share the recipe ....so come back tomorrow if you're interested or if you suffer from dry itchy winter skin!!

Sounds like a very special Thanksgiving and a wonderful weekend! I wish we had started decorating for Christmas, but what we did was moved our youngest daughter to a new city *sob* where we woke up to snow. Good thing we were prepared -- I even got to wear the hat I knitted for myself. And it was the first time our dogs had been in snow. They were very glad to have those old red sweaters!

Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving with your family. Just reading your post today made me feel good. Yes, our tree is up and beautiful and Charlotte has done a great job of decorating inside the house. Tomorrow or the day after I will put up the outside lights and decorations. I will be back tomorrow to check out your lotion. The first time you mentioned it you also referred to ladies in your remarks. I understand that lotions usually are for ladies but if it will help keep a lady with smooth skin like silk from itching maybe---just maybe it will do something for an old rough skinned MAN. (Although, Charlotte says my skin is smoother than hers. LOL)

I'm glad you had a wonderful time...Why not when you have your loved ones around you? That's awesome. Trying not to eat too much now as my family and I also were stuffed up!

Haven't decorated here. And yes, can't believe it's Dec...Take care sister and God bless and protect you. Love to you.

It sounds as if you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We still have leftovers, but at least our Christmas decorations are up.
