  My family and I will be enjoying Thanksgiving out of state this year..  Something completely different for a change and we are all looking forward to it!
I'm a wee bit antsy about not being home for this special holiday, but we ARE EXCITED about having some vacation time!
Also, because our kitchen remodel is ongoing it will be almost impossible to prepare a huge family meal when more than half my cooking utensils (including pots, pans, serving dishes, etc.) are packed away.  I'll miss our traditions...but again, a family getaway sounds wonderful to us.
I love Autumn and last weekend my Miss K and I picked out a couple of sweet pumpkins!  I'm not a big fan of Halloween, but she did have a blast helping carve out the largest pumpkin with her Papa!  Love how it came out!

More soon.  Hope your Friday is fab!

Love to you...

Now that is such a sweet pumpkin :o)...I had a ceramic pumpkin with a cat on top that looked just like that. I had made it for a friend years ago for a halloween party she was having...I need to start painting ceramics just brought back some wonderful memories. As long as you are surrounded by family, Thanksgiving can be anywhere :o) Have a super weekend! Hugs Jennifer

Love the pictures of the carvers. The pumpkin turned out so cute. My kids still carve a pumpkin each year and they make some great ones. Have a great Halloween. Love to see all the tiny ones costumes.

How sweet to pumpkin carve with her Papa- what special memories will be with her for a lifetime! The kitty cutout is great- not scary which I don't like at all.

Hi Rebecca, just a note to let you know I am doing estate sales right now and just don't have time to blog. I do read some of my favorite blogs, but don't comment much. One of these days I will get back to blogging. I miss everyone, but try to keep up with what you all are doing. I am loving the work at the sales and find so many wonderful things.
Hugs, Pat
