More Tomorrow

I'll post the wreaths tomorrow--they were my favorites.

It's been great having Isaac home. Ben stopped by today. We had italian beef sandwiches and chocolate chip cookies.

Now I'm going to get back to my Wally Lamb book. I stayed up reading last night til 3 am! Yes, it's that good.
We thought Betsy might have liked these. There was a cute little girl in a black velvet dress looking at the Curious George tree, but she got away before I could take her picture.

Blue Ribbon

This one got a designer's best-in-show ribbon for 7-foot trees.
Loved this one with the copper tubing.

This was the Jr. League's tree.
This one made us think of Lori and the great thanksgiving we had the year she and Todd came to Springfield. We think they should come back again next year!

Festival of Trees

FOT is Memorial Medical Center's yearly fundraiser. V and I went on Thanksgiving afternoon and had fun looking at all the work everybody did. The place was packed and there wasn't a hint of scary news about the economy! A very nice Thanksgiving afternoon for us while the guys watched football.

Happy Thanksgiving

We have so much to be thankful for this year. I'm up early to start baking pies--apple and pumpkin. We have a nice Amish turkey for the Nesco. And Isaac is here! We haven't seen him yet, but he's in town. After we eat and wash the dishes, I'm going to start reading that new Wally Lamb book. And no TV news about the economy today!

Saturday Vase

Love the seeded eucalyptus with grandma's vase. And almost everything goes with orange tulips! It's just amazing to me that we can have tulips in November. . . Wonder what grandma would think about that?

Make-Up Assignment

I missed our class on memorial designs, so I put this one together as a make-up. This is one of my favorite pictures of Nellie. She was such a good dog. Thank goodness for our Lilla and G dog who keep us company these days.

Beautiful Bras

PJ and I went to see the Beautiful Bra show while she was here visiting in October. It was fun to run around with my sister--something we don't get to do very often.
This entry won the most votes. Easy to see why, , ,

Definitely not a boring purse! She must have been a great friend.
Flea Market to Fabulous--fabulous, of course!

We loved this one, like we love everything else Jan Parkes does.

Happy Days

Betsy moves so fast, we have hundreds of these blurry shots. But I love this one because Mark looks so happy. Our little Betsy is loved loved loved.

Hanging Out with Nathan Kenny

More precious time with Betsy today. We all had a ball. The cabbage patch doll, Nathan Kenny, was Judson's.

Betsy on the Back Porch

We've been having a great visit. And a little computer trouble, so this is our first chance to post. The weather is perfect--in the mid 70's. We were looking for something short-sleeved to wear, and we found this little t-shirt that Kathy bought in our garage sale hunts when Judson was little. Those were the good old days of garage sales. So here's Betsy, in her vintage t-shirt.
