Playing house !

Thanksgiving decor is down and now the Christmas decorating begins! I love this, I recently read that women love decorating their homes because we are getting to  "play house" I have always called it piddling but I think playing house is pretty accurate. So I am now looking forward to playing house this week!

Early Thanksgiving !

I have the house to myself this morning. I am busy getting my Thanksgiving dinner ready for tomorrow and listening to Christmas music, life is good! We are celebrating our Thanksgiving early this year because some had to work Thanksgiving day this year. So for the first time we will have our family gathering early and on Thanksgiving Day we will be going to the mts. in Tenn. and N.C.  I am so excited! We had a trip planned earlier this month but had car problems and could not go as planned. I have never gone anywhere on a major holiday before, family always come to me, and I love that, but it is exciting that this year I will be going away for the holiday! Earlier this month, I was sad that all my family could not be here Thanksgiving Day, but it has all worked out better than I could imagine. I get my family thanksgiving and my trip on thanksgiving! God is so good, I do believe that he worked this just for me!

It was a Happy Halloween !

We had a very nice Halloween at our house again this year, for 3 hours we had a steady stream of trick-or- treaters last year a neighbor counted 700, I think it was more than that this year. Our subdivision has the reputation as the place to go and they do. I think everyone enjoys it. I made a big pot of chili and put out lots of toppings, the children and grandchildren were all here and this grandma had a great time!
