Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving with lots of yummy food.  We stayed in Vermont for Thanksgiving this year and ate at a friends house yesterday.  It was really nice to be with some friends.  However, we want those left overs so I will be cooking our version today!  With everything negative going on in the world today, it's so nice to be able to sit with people you love and be thankful you even can have a day to do this.  There are so many more people visiting food shelters and food banks just in our area alone, I pray that they find warmth and peace during the holidays. 

Next week we travel to Ohio to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with our families for a week.  It will be so nice to see family and friends for a whole week and not some short long weekend trip.  We are very excited to go, but are not excited about the drive (12 - 14 hours) and the hubby doesn't like to spend the night - so it's straight through on the way down.  I'm thinking of taking a small quilting project to work on - I haven't done that in the past trips, perhaps I can quilt in the car and it will make time fly by fast and I would get a project done! 

So this weekend's to-do list looks like this: in addition to preparing for travel, gather and wrap all of the Christmas gifts we are taking, decorating our house for Christmas, making our Thanksgiving meal today, run a few errands, AND get a wall hanging project ready to be quilted!  No problem!

We wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving again and hope you have a great countdown to Christmas!
