Thanksgiving, December, Christmas, Friends and Family!

When we returned home from our second trip we were so thrilled to have our grandsons visit for a week.  In the picture to the right we are on a beautiful walkway near our home looking for bugs for our five year old grandson along with our two year old grandson.   It was one of the most beautiful days.  Fall is absolutely gorgeous. Changing colors of the leaves is amazing.  Oh my!  My!

Happy to be back walking and blogging again.  I've traveled over eight thousand miles by car during the last two months and there is nothing like home sweet home.  Although it was great to visit family and friends, it was not a happy occasion.  I took a lot of time creating and making dresses while my husband drove.  He drove during the day and we spent night in hotels.  The hotels were perfect for creating an instant workshop.  It was fun.

We were back from our trip in time to Celebrate Thanksgiving with family.  My favorite daughter and son did a great job preparing all the delicious food including homemade every thing;  turkey and stuffing with all the trimmings, cakes, pies and lots of love.  Didn't know my favorite daughter could make a pecan pie like the one below.  Beautiful and double delicious.  The Hot Water Corn Bread was a blast from the past.  Want some of these yum yum recipes?

Hope everyone had a wonderful and Blessed Thanksgivingwith many more wonderful years to come.

Now, after enjoying all the great foods, we needed to somehow work it off.  So we talked a lot, walked back and forth to the food table a lot and had lots of fun.  The next day I made mini dresses and went for a long walk.  Good health is at the top of my list as I celebrate living this Christmas Holiday Season, but I must have chocolate this and chocolate that.  I love candid yams and must have them too.  I'll do every thing  I can to be safe with my weight and issues.  Exercise, exercise and exercise is the key.  Hope I don't loose the key like I do with my car keys.  Let's try to stay focused and stay slim.  These cute dress will look great on you at the New Year's party.

Thanks to all of you for reading my blog.  Sorry I had to go away and now that I'm back I hope to bring you lots of pictures and inspiration to enjoy your life and celebrate living the best you can with what you have.  May God continue to Bless all of you.
