Happy Monday ~~

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving dinner with family this year.  I enjoyed mine very much.  It is the First time since I've been married and having Thanksgiving, that I let someone help me in the kitchen.  Why didn't I do this before?  I always feel that my company should just relax.  I always handled everything.  This time though, all the women were in the kitchen and it was so much fun! Lake's Mom did the gravy, Lake took over on the mashed potatoes, Nicole did the veggies, and I handled the bird.  Lots of laughing and story telling.  The night ended with dessert and full bellies.  Perfect day :).

I didn't do the regular Black Friday shopping that I normally do. First year for that too. I hope all of you who did venture out to the craziness, did so without having any of the horror stories that were happening out there.  I did meet up with my friend Beth at the Little Log House in East Berlin.  They had the fire place going, and the atmosphere was so much nicer than waiting in line at the department stores. Plus, this is all hand made items.  The girls and I from the Black Sheep Rug Hookers put some of our things in there as well. I believe it's by invitation only to put your things in there. I'm happy we were invited.    Beth and I also went to a couple antique stores and also to our friend Becky Mummert's open house. She does pottery. Of course I bought some of her stoneware for myself.  I already put it away, and forgot to take a picture of it :(.  It was a full day, but a relaxing one without all the commotion. Thanks for the great day Beth..

On Saturday I did nothing.  I have been battling a cold and I was exhausted. Didn't sleep well Friday night from the coughing.  So I just rested all day. George changed the oil in my car, etc.  Wish I would have gotten out my hooking, but I didn't.  I even passed up on going to Brenda's hook in so I could rest up.

I received a package on Saturday from my Secret pal on usaprim on ebay.  I was battling if I should open it, so I posted that  I received it and let them make the decision for me.  Well, my arm was twisted :).  Ginger from Primitives by the light of the moon had my name.  This woman never stops. I seriously don't know how she does it ALL.

From decorating the mailing package...

To the sweet packaging and "making" the card......

And then creating ALL of this!!  Thank you so Very much Ginger. I Love it all!  What a Beautiful way to start off the Christmas Cheer :)

Yesterday George and I took Craig and Lake to set sail on their Honeymoon.  I could sense the excitement when they spotted the Ship!  We didn't get a chance to park or take pictures, just dropped them off.  Caught this one as we were driving away....  Everything went very smooth for them ...  Can't wait to hear how it went in another week!  And George and I are looking forward to when we will be setting sail next year to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary!

Today I may do some online shopping for Christmas, do some laundry, maybe even make it to the grocery store.  I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!!

Hope you are already feeling better. There's no good time to be sick, but the holidays are the worst IMHO.
