{Good Times With Family}

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our family surely enjoyed our day with extended family. We always have MORE than you could imagine to eat and such a great time together.  Granddaughter Mallory turned 14 on Nov. 23rd so we celebrated her a few days before Thanksgiving with cake and ice cream. She had a great birthday. She went to see The Christmas Carol at the Alhambra Dinner Theatre and loved it.   We snapped a few pictures on Thanksgiving day and as always, I am so proud of my family.  I did take a little time for "tea time" and whipped up a pineapple, mango, and cinnamon spice loaded tea. YUM! We loaded up Thanksgiving afternoon and went with the guys to our hunting grounds and done a little hunting, eating out and shopping. My oldest daughter didn't go as my grandson had a football game. Which, she doesn't hunt either but hates being left out so.... She cloned herself in our picture. LOL! Aren't these shoes the cutest? I found these at TJ Maxx

{Thanksgiving Blessings}

WOW! I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is RIGHT HERE ON US . I find the older I become the faster time seems to fly . Welcome to my little bit of Fall this year! I went very simple this year with my tablescape. Gold flat ware went well with th e color scheme and paired up perfectly w ith light gold napkins and wooden napkin rings. Love my new dishes this year and what I really loved about them was the price! I had the goblets but I bought these dishes from a yard sale and loved the simple design. Each setting consiste d of 4 p ieces and I winded up with a service for 12 for $1 5 ! Not to shabby of a deal huh? A few pieces had some chips but nothing noticeable. Love me a deal! The table runner was actually a curtain but goes perfect with my colors. Simple candle setting for centerpiece. I found this at the Family Dollar Store for $8. I've had the cute leaf salt/pepper shakers for a few years . Creamer, sugar and artificial sweetener sits on this

Our theme was Lures and Lace and everything was decorated in blue and pink. We decided to serve sweets only since this would be an early afternoon party.
