I love November cause that's means Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving! It's a no-stress holiday! Well, except the cooking and shopping and cleaning and cooking and cleaning.
It's a non-obligatory holiday. No trick-or-treaters and no gift buying/giving. Besides, it seems like it's OK to have some Christmas decorations in the store during the Thanksgiving season. It's not OK to have Christmas decorations in the store during trick-or-treat season. Seeing Nativity scenes next to ghouls is just wrong.
It messes with my head.
We did have a good time with the ENTIRE family here! Yup all 5 children, 3 spouses, 6
grandchildren, 2 dogs, 2 cats and a partridge in a pear tree.
We carved pumpkins and went trunk or treating. It was great!
The oldest child has moved home from the far reaches of the earth (Houston) They left 95 degree weather and got snowed on here! They brought my 18 month old granddaughter. Therefore, they can stay!
This is child #2 and his family.
Child #3 and his family.
Child #4 and #5 were absent from this particular activity where there was a camera.
They had nothing to do with the trick-or-treating festivities and the family dentist is very depressed about it.
Just in case you didn't know....pumpkin seeds are very slimy.
We had some pretty awesome punkin carvers.
Now I better get busy and start making a list and checking it twice....stuffing, cranberries, turkey, ham, ..........................................
