Thanksgiving Is Nearly Upon Us

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us

. I had a lovely day yesterday at Hobby Lobby getting some of their fall stuff on sale. And yes, I even bought a few of their Halloween stuff too. I, also, found some pretty cool stuff for Christmas at Goodwill. 

What I am working on right now is painting some of the little $1 ceramic Christmas houses for a Thanksgiving village. I bought some brown, yellow, and orange spray paint. Yes, I know that they didn't have those kinds of houses back at the original Thanksgiving but I'm going for cheap decorations here!
So far they are turning out cute.

We are planning on staying home this year. It will be just the four of us. Nice and simple again this year.
We'll be having turkey, mashed potatoes, broccoli salad, sweet potato supreme, pea salad, brown and serve rolls, cranberry salad, green bean casserole. Wow, as I write it out that sounds like an awful lot of food for just four people :) At least I won't have much cooking to do over the weekend! OOhhh, I can't forget the dessert. Pumpkin pie and pecan pie. Not to mention any other pumpkin thingy H decides to make all week!!

On the following Sunday, the girls and I have a baby shower to go to. My husbands niece is having her first baby. We are all excited.
We'll be able to drive to R's house and pick her up to take her too. It's a bit out of the way but it's worth the extra miles so she can go too!

Hoping ya'll have a very Blessed Thanksgiving!


  1. That's a good idea to paint the houses. They look really well. I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving feast! Here in the UK we don't celebrate Thanksgiving so I have to wait until Christmas to have my turkey. Well, I don't HAVE to wait but I like to wait until then because it tastes so wonderful if I haven't been eating it in the weeks up to Christmas.

    1. Thanksgiving is petty much the only time we eat turkey. We do a ham for Christmas. And basically all the same side dishes. Best time of the year 😄
