Moms Birthday and Thanksgiving.

 Clearing Thanksgiving and other fall items away to make way for putting up the Christmas tree.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my sister and brother in law,  Grand girls and their parents.  I wished I had taken more pictures of the day but I didn't.  Still turkey and fixings sitting in the fridge to eat up. First of all we had a Birthday celebration for Mom's 100th.  She enjoyed her family being there and she did so enjoy the made from scratch lemon and blueberry cake my sister made for her.  We will see her Tuesday for several games of checkers and she wins them all.  She is so good at checkers and scrabble.

 Now to clearing things out and taking down the Thanksgiving or fall tree that has been in the dining area.  I had on it my dried oranges and apples along with dried hydrangeas and other flowers.  
gourds I hollowed out that were set on the table 

Putting away pillows, this one I drew and painted on a pillow sham a few weeks back for our bed.

These are such good tasting cookies for out of package.  Good with coffee and tea.
