We had a VERY Happy Thanksgiving! Daddy and Moma and Daryl and Laura and family all came over and it was GRAND! So, I'll post Day 1 and Day 2 of my Christmas decor...and then I'll sneak in our Thanksgiving pictures at the bottom of this post. =) (Sorry I was TOO Tired to post Day 1 yesterday. I HAD to have my Sunday afternoon nap. =)DAY 1
Can you believe it's Christmas time already? I can't!!! But I'm SO HAPPY it is!!! I'm having a blast making our house look festive!
~Just some red Christmas balls on my tree-shaped cupcake holder, a fun red and white stripped candle, and a white chalkboard make the top of our antique gas stove in our dinning room look Christmasy.~
DAY 2~The candle holder on our antique stove...with my "Jesus is the REASON for the Season" Christmas ball added in the center.~
~And now for the Thanksgiving pictures. Daddy and Moma came over Wednesday night and we were SO HAPPY that they could join us this year. Moma, Laura, and I each made some of the Thanksgiving meal...so it made it easier...for no one was having to do it all.
Moma made 2 beautiful pumpkin pies, and here's one of them. =) ~
Laura made 2 chocolate chip pies (a favorite in our family) but I didn't get a picture of her yummy pies. =( ~
The brown wrapping paper gives the table the "burlapy" look, but when the gravy drips on it, you can just wrap it up after dinner and toss it in the trash. =) ~
Here's the link for the recipe he uses.~
One of the MAIN ones this year is that Moma's stroke wasn't any worse and that she is still with us!!!! Thank you, Sweet Jesus!
My Sweet Daddy and Moma! (sorry the picture is back lit.)~
On Saturday, my cousin Martha from S.C. came by for a visit. It was great seeing her. She, Laura, and I had a lot of fun chatting together.~
I'm hoping to post something Christmasy (decor from our home) EACH DAY for the first 25 days of December. Happy Christmas-ing y'all!
