Wow! I Can't Believe We Are Done!

I am a little shocked I must admit.  Its the day after Thanksgiving and the tree is up and decorated, the mantel and piano are decorated and the house is clean.  We never get the tree up and the decorating done until the week of Christmas usually lol!  I am so happy its already finished!  Wish I could say the same about the Christmas shopping lol!

In all fairness, most of the credit goes to my daughter Megan.   I help put the tree together and wrap the garland, and she does the rest.  Her choice I might add.  And I am okay with that, decorating is not really my thing lol.  She always does a fabulous job!

The cat has graciously allowed Ella to rest her head on the side of the DOG bed.  Progress is being made lol.

Thanksgiving Pie

4 Apple Crumb Pies, 2 Pumpkin Pies and 1 Pecan Pie.
We made two kinds of stuffing too.  Tomorrow, home made mashed potatoes and homemade gravy, corn, and biscuits.  That's just what we are making, it doesn't count what everyone else brings.  We will also have homemade green beans, rottkraut (red cabbage), sweet potatoes, cheesy potatoes, cucumber salad and probably something else that I am forgetting.  Of course. the turkey!

Wishing everyone a very happy Thanksgiving day!
