Bring on the turkey!

Today is our big Turkey day. My family has been busy getting ready....the girls are cooking like crazy. My girl made the most yummy iced pumpkin cookies last night..........I am surprised there are any left with all the taste testing that was going on. Megan made a pot of garlic mashed potatoes that will be going in to the crock pot shortly not to mention 2 Famous Balls of Cheese! The Turkey just hopped on the barbi, dressing, gravy and cranberry sauce all ready to go! Thanks to my family for doing all the work while I lounge on the couch and of course do some blogging :-)!

Back to feeling better. I had a couple bumpy days, but I can see I just have to take it easy and not overdo. I just don't do well at sitting and especially this time of year. I would love to be pulling out my Christmas stuff like Miss Sharon, but that might just have to wait for a week. Got some great mail yesterday. My Santa letters arrived. Not a very good picture........cause they are way cuter then in person. Love the paper that Mika picked, very
vintage. You pick the words and give her your colors and she will make you the most wonderful words ever!You can reach Mika at, and if you haven't already visited her moms blog, Cherry Hill Cottage, you might want to take a visit. It's one of my favorite blogs.
I have had lots of questions about the pattern used for my Chocolate swap quilt that Carol made. Silly me, I thought it was a Buggy Barn pattern, but actually it is a pattern by Sandy Gervais called Tree Up! Lights On!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

So glad you are feeling better. I had read this days post but not gone on down until Kim asked if I'd read it. See she knew I had shingles a couple years ago and they aren't fun. Sure glad you have a good nurse and Dr. to help you along.
Felt a little jealous that you had others to cook on Thanksgiving. Now I know why. Take care.
