Did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving?
Did you eat way too much like I did and am still doing?
Did you go black Friday shopping? I did, along with my family and brother in law and his family. We left at 9pm and got home after 4am. Went back shopping later in the day. Fun, fun, fun!
My sweet girls and I are going to start decorating for Christmas on Sunday so I will be showing you some of that later on next week.
Today, I wanted to show you a super great find from a local antique shop. I fell in love as soon as I saw it.
Can you see why this was love at first sight?
Headed to bed to catch up on some much needed rest.
Good night all!

Hey sweet friends!
I wanted to share a very quick and easy dessert that we found.
This box contains great yumminess and wonderful ease.
Krusteaz has some great mixes, and this one is definitely a winner. Add some farm fresh eggs and real butter, and you have some tasty eating going on.
Add a little cream cheese frosting to the top and you are all set.
My sweet nine year old daughter fixed these all by herself and was tickled that she got to play a part in our early Thanksgiving meal.
She cooked them, iced them ever so lightly, and displayed them beautifully.
I love having so much help in the kitchen. From my oldest daughter’s stromboli that I posted about last, to my youngest daughter’s desserts, life is easy at meal time.
Thanks for stopping by today and spending a little time with me.
I pray that your Thanksgiving week is truly blessed.

Hello my sweet friends.
What a wonderful night last night was!!
We celebrated an early Thanksgiving last night with my immediate family. That included my wonderful brother and his family and my precious mom and her sweet husband. (lots of adjectives there, I know, but I want to make sure you know how special my family is to me)
Because of mom’s treatments, her appetite has been a little off so I wanted Thanksgiving dinner to taste good to her most of all.
We decided on a very non-traditional meal with the main dish being a fabulous recipe that my oldest daughter makes. Stromboli and taco soup were the highlights of the menu with lots of tasty sides.
Let me show you just a few before pictures of this deliciousness…
Hope you can read this recipe.. Let me know if you can’t.
To go along with our delicious but simple menu, I decided to do a pretty simple table setting on both the dining room table and kitchen table.
Isn’t that just a beautiful color pumpkin? I kind of wish it would last forever.
Along with the great main foods, there are, of course, the sweets. I will have to share with you a very easy pumpkin bar dessert recipe that my youngest daughter fixed. Will show you that later.
Yes, the food was incredible last night. But, the most incredible part of the evening was time spent with my family. I am truly a blessed lady and am so thankful for the family God has given to me.
