Family, Food, Fun...
Over Thanksgiving weekend we were invited to spend time with our extended family. This is Mr. C and Brad. They are always bonding and solving the problems of the world. Here they are taking time out to watch extreme vehicle rock climbing...something Brad loves to do.
This is Amy, Brad's wife and she is our favorite daughter-in-love (okay she is our only).
Amy fixed a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. Each dish was truly yummy and extra special.
I managed to mix and serve "Cookie Dough Dip" with graham crackers and apple slices. Thanks to Pinterest it was so easy and everyone loved it.
This was also courtesy of Pinterest. Mr. C actually made these. And with the leftover bits of crust he formed a tiny apple pie. So yummy and not heavy after a full meal. I actually ate mine for breakfast the next morning. Warmed in the oven and very tasty.
Pallets were all the rage this year for yard decorations. Amy cut and stained these trees. There were also Snowmen and candy cane fences which I neglected to get photos of.
This is a new addition to Brad and Amy's home and I LOVE the little carved bears...one holding down the ladder and the other one peeking into the window.
Here are the decorations lit up at night. Friday night the entire street was lit up and decorated in honor of the tiny town parade. I didn't get any photos because I was too busy cheering on each float and entrant. Small town USA at its finest!
I trust you and your family enjoyed a wonderful warm weekend with family and/or friends.
Now we are on to Christmas which is right around the corner. I shall be writing and addressing cards and checking my list. This year I am focusing on time with family and friends and not so much on gifts. So many of us do not need material things and therefore our time with others is the most precious gift of all. Embracing all the Magic of this Wonderful Season.
