Yesterday I skipped ahead I guess, because it looked a little like Christmas. I love Christmas and I am so excited to start decorating for it. But, I’m really, really, really excited about Thanksgiving because my WHOLE family is going to be here: i.e. parent, bros., sis, and all of the kids (incl. our 3), 1 spouse and two that are very attached to two. There will be 23. It seems that about every other year we are all able to be together…that’s not enough but I’m afraid that with time, it will only get more difficult. I’m planning to have gingerbread house pieces all cooked up and ready to go so that whoever wants to, can make a gingerbread house that afternoon/evening. Sounds crazy, I know, but I just really want to do that & I hope it works out. Here are the placecards I am working on. I scanned an adorable card from the late 60′s to use for this.
Also, I changed one of the charms I made last week so it’s a bit more fun. I got the idea from one my sweet girl has & since this is going to her, I hope she likes it. One side has a snippet of map from where we live and the other a piece from where she is currently living. I’m hoping that she can always find her way home and the key is there too so she can make her way in at anytime.
