Thanksgiving fun

I can't believe I haven't been on my blog for such a long time and I can give you the excuse of the new job and Thanksgiving but.................there really isn't any excuse to miss my friends online.

Thanksgiving was great! My youngest son Travis came up with his son Alex and he also brought along Allayah. His girlfriend Jamie came up later that night too. My dining room table looked really nice with all the matching napkins and placemats,a gift from my friend Betsy (thanks again!). I even made little nametags for everyone so they would know where they sat. It was fun using some of my border punches and just getting my creative juices flowing. The turkey was great and if you've never used an oven bag for your turkey you don't know what you are missing. So easy and so very moist.

We had our 2 oldest grandkids for 3 days. They played so well together we didn't even realize we had kids in the house. They spent hours in my scraproom just being creative (they LOVED the cuttlebug), they played at the park and of course we swam for hours. Friday night we all went bowling and wouldn't you know I forgot my new camera (normally I carry one in my purse at all times). But I did get some cute pictures of the kids swimming so I will share them with you.

I took everyone to Lands End on Friday since the company store was open and they all found some really good deals. Plus they got to be the first people to ride in our new car. We went to Sears on black Friday but otherwise avoided the stores. We had too many other fun family things to do and I can shop anytime right? Actually my job is being a personal shoppper online for Sears so that's all I do every day when I work.

Well I'm off to find my scraproom again so I can make some Christmas cards.......yes I know I should have them done a LONG time ago but this has been one very strange year. Do you have all your Christmas cards done??
