It's the time of year that is cold and  dreary.  we got a little snow that covered my world for just a day. It was disappointing to see the dirty drab scene. I guess mother nature is trying to tell us something.  I only put up my fiber optics tree this year as I am not up to doing as much. You aren't supposed to decorate them but made stars from take out boxes and used light thread to hang them carefully.  So pretty at night but couldn't get a good picture of them.Miss mouse is standing at the door to greet you.  She has competition this year  with miss prissy.

the  napkins match the table cloth.  the corner has cut work .  Ice cream to have with pumpkin pie.
This year we give a special thanks for our forefathers who made America great.  We also must pray that our government will make the right decisions to protect those rights.  We should pray that our world can live in harmony and have the same freedoms as our great nation has maintained for all these years.  Please bring our boys back  and let the country's form  their own governments to bring the people the kinda of life that we enjoy.Thanksgiving is a time when families gather together and  remember the reason for the holiday some coming from great distance and praying together eating great food and having a happy time.
